Summer is here and that means it is time to hit the road and do some exploring. However, do not forget to bring your four-footed friends along on your trip. Yep, that’s Fido and Fluffy. After all, they are like family, so you might as well bring them along on your adventure instead of leaving them in a kennel or with a sitter.
