Travels with Missy

Our 9 year old Springer Spaniel travels everywhere with us, sometimes this is really straight forward, sometimes it takes a bit of negotiating hotels, eating out, etc. On this section of the website I have started to compile a list of dog friendly places we have visited and stayed just in case you want to bring your dog family too.
