Subject: Our Summer Vacation....and the dog.
Jane,

So sorry to hear that your plans were cancelled by a No-Show pet sitter. We have 2 cats and a fantastic cat-sitter, who runs a service and has back-up if she herself can't make it!

That said, do plan a trip to Paris. Everytime I go, I see people on my plane bringing their small dogs with them. Hotels and restaurants in Paris as well as other parts of France are dog friendly. You'll probably wind up in some fun situations because of Doxie and you'll find her to be a traveling aid rather than a hinderence.

So your vacation has "gone to the dogs" and you'll be happier for it!

Best, Candice NYC
