Whether the rest of the world likes it or not, dogs are quickly outgrowing their “pet” status and resting comfortably as full-fledged members of the family.

Maybe it’s time to plan a getaway to the fresh Colorado air for some hiking, or Richmond, VA to take a stroll along the James River. Either way, anyplace is best enjoyed with a leash in hand.
