If you follow us on social media I am sure you have seen us boasting about the Dog Days Of May event happening at Jasper Park Lodge in beautiful Jasper, AB, Canada. 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.
As I went to high school only 4 hours away from Jasper, you can imagine the amount of trips I have taken there with many times staying & visiting Jasper Park Lodge. This resort is nothing but amazing! In fact the first road-trip me and my boyfriend(now Husband) at the time took was to Jasper Park Lodge.
