Rolo and I will be taking a 800km+ road-trip South West at the end of May to attend this special weekend event; The Dog Days Of May. We encourage you to come take part in this event too as It’s a whole weekend dedicated to our furry friends! We will be blogging & posting on social media during the event.

    This sounds like so much fun and it looks beautiful! I love going to pet events with Wynston. We have several large events each year in Arizona. I can’t get enough!

    • Kimberley says:

      WE are so excited! We love attending pet events too! Wish we were able to go to blogpaws but maybe next year as it should be on our side of north america next year!

    This sounds like a fabulous, fun event! Not many hotels have dog friendly events like this. I didn’t know Fairmont hotels were pet friendly, that is great to know. However, the $50 pet fee per night is a bit steep, especially if you stay for a whole week. We travel so often and for longer periods of time so we have to always be conscious of racking up additional fees. Still good to know though, will keep it in mind.
