Pet Travel, A Sheltie Does Paris and Provence

by Mary Haight on April 25, 2012

pet travelPet travel is not unfamiliar to author Sherry Long. She was ahead of the crowd 8 years ago when she started traveling across country with her then 9-month-old Sheltie, Chula, getting her accustomed to and comfortable with the new experiences that happen on a daily basis while traveling. Sherry is still ahead of the curve in pet travel.

As overseas travel with dogs appears to be sprouting wings since the EU made it easier to bring your dog on holidays, Sherry has come out with a book on her experience traveling to and in France – or should I say her dog Chula has? Dog Trots Globe is one dog’s view on the wonders of the markets, the fields and the sausages of Provence and the somewhat less joie de vivre experience of Paris due to limits on where you can take your dog. No experiencing art at the Louvre, but most restaurants will allow them to dine inside if you ask.

Chula did have a bit of a walk on the wild side we were told, boldly snatching a baguette from a shopper’s bag – the aroma must have been too tempting! Every day was a new adventure – even the scary one in the South of France involving thousands of animals Chula had never seen…that was a bit much for her according to Sheron, but Chula gamely conquered her fears when she met these creatures later in the countryside. You’ll know all when you listen!

You can find this charming, delightful book, Dog Trots Globe, at Amazon and iTunes in book, e-book or enhanced e-book formats. The research and extensive information on pet travel to France and the preparation that involves is at the publisher’s site. Enjoy the many beautiful photos Sherry provided for the video, and check out their Facebook page for more fun.

Now retired, Sherry Long founded and directed The Hampton-Brown Company, a ” leading publisher of language and literacy materials” K-12.  She served as CEO for National Geographic School Publishing after National Geographic bought the company in 2006.
