The first two links I have for you this week highlight a couple of intrepid travelers-with-dogs: ohmidog‘s John Woestendiek is soldiering across the U.S. on a minimal budget with his dog Ace (I only came across the saga a few posts in, but it begins here), and filmmaker and journalist Allison Otto travels throughout the U.S. with her dog Cosette (Otto’s blog is Small Dog on the Go, and she was profiled this week on Take Paws).
