Webster’s dictionary offers two definitions for adventure. One is a daring, hazardous undertaking. The second is an unusual, stirring, often romantic experience. Personally, this word conveys so much more. Adventure is wind in your face as you stand at the peak of a long hike. It is waking up early to start on a road trip. Adventure is making new friends and creating new experiences. And all of these can be so much better with a four-legged companion. For me, that companion is a 40-lb black mutt, but whoever your companion is I hope that this blog can offer some good advice and inspire more adventures for all of you.
“The Dog Adventure Guide” is a blog created to combine two of my passions – outdoor adventures and veterinary medicine. As the name states, the focus of this blog will be on outdoor activities with dogs with helpful tips from a veterinarian along the way. However, I also hope to incorporate a few blog articles on adventures with other companion animals as well as a few posts about my own veterinary adventures.
