I had an exciting trip to southern Florida! The Travelodge in Homestead is a pet friendly motel and so was the Shell Man tourist shop (above) in Marathon on the Florida keys. Note the sign on the railing - it welcomes pets inside on leash!
My mom did a booksigning at Hooked On Books in Islamorada and awarded prizes to the young artists who participated in the contest (visit http://authorevents.blogspot.com/)*
On the way back to Tampa, we drove through the Everglades and met a gator on a dirt road - good thing I wasn't allowed out or I would have to bark at this big guy!
Then I took a long nap on comfy pillows in the back seat of our truck!
