Why You Should Go on a Solo Road Trip with Your Dog

I’m currently sitting on the front porch of an old Alaska cabin with my dog, Eira Violet, lying down at my feet. It’s just the two of us, and we’re watching wind whip the spruce trees and listening to the thunder. I haven’t felt this utterly relaxed in ages, and I owe it to Eira: especially when you’re a mom like I am, traveling alone with your dog can be a healing, bonding experience.
