We adopted Evey (a flat-coated Spitz Spaniel) from the Camp Pendleton animal shelter. Two weeks later, we took her and our 10-year-old dog (a Norwegian Pillow Hound named Rocky) on a weeklong road trip from our home in fabulous Las Vegas up the Pacific Coast Highway to Carmel. Our first stop was at the Cambria Shores Inn, where we found a complimentary copy of Fido Friendly. Thanks to Fido Friendly, the Dog Lovers Companion to California book, the wonderful Fido-friendly inns in Carmel, Big Sur and Cambria, Luiz the crazy, dog-loving maitreā€™d at the Portabella restaurant in Carmel, and the good people at Dom Perignon, we had a wonderful dog trip and successfully assimilated Evey into our pack.
