Pet Travel

K9 Potomac boat tour in Washington DC

Written by Rachel Phelps

While I was in Washington, DC a few weeks ago, I was invited to a pre-launch book party for’s Ruff Guide to the United States book.  This wasn’t just a normal party.  It was a Boat tour for us traveling dogs to experience firsthand some of the really neat pet-friendly places featured in Bring Fido’s new book.  The boat tour was a lot of fun.  There were food and drinks for the humans AND us dogs.  I had doggie beer, cheese ice cream, and a doggie cupcake.  I don’t remember what my mom had but she said it was good too.  But seriously, how can it be any better than cheese ice cream?!?!  Here are some photos from my fun evening.
