What do we do with the dogs?
If you have a dog in your life and you ever take holidays that is a familiar question. The options are: book the dogs into a kennel, arrange for someone to stay at your house to look after them, or take the dogs with you.
We wanted to take the dogs. We found a pet-friendly bach to rent online, checked with the owners that they really meant it about dogs being allowed inside, and….relaxed. It was so easy. The property was large and fully fenced, the bach was rustic and not in the slightest bit precious and the bach owner’s dogs, living nearby, visited to play with our dogs.
The humans spent the weekend lazing about in the sunshine, reading books and eating well at the picnic table in the shade of a jacaranda tree. The canines ran themselves ragged, exuded enthusiasm for life as only dogs can do, and contributed to our enjoyment of the holiday with their happy presence.
