The real reason she is a great traveling companion is her excitement over every new discovery, every new view, every meal, every ferry ride. She’s infectious and delightful. She’ll talk to the local dogs, pick up toy telephones from the roadside and hold conversations on them, race ahead and run back to urge us on. She’s perfect.

  2. She opened her eyes and saw her chocolate lab looking at her. His tail started thumping happily on the mattress while his ears plastered themselves to the side of his head; a clear-cut sign that he’s excited.
