Road Trip

I’m not sure this is what the hotel had in mind when they said dogs were allowed. But that didn’t stop Kaya! After 13 hours on the road in two days’ time, she was ready for some real comfort.

My annual father–son trip took me from DC to Madison, Wisconsin, to spend a week with my son, Gabe. This marks the first time I have traveled to see him, for one of these trips, where he is living on his own.

Every year we take a week to have adventures together. As often as we can arrange it my dog is included.

“I loved the atmosphere of the dance studios – the wooden floors, the big mirrors, everyone dressed in pink or black tights, the musicians accompanying us – and the feeling of ritual the classes had.”
– Suzanne Vega
