Random Pet Travel Tips from a Wandering Mind

According to the Pet Products Association, one in four families now travel with their dog(s). Cats are also getting some road time. According to the Travel Industry Association of America, 15% of traveling pets are cats.

Family vacations are great... when you're getting along. I'm a realist, so I'm going to put forth the fact that all families are a little (to sometimes extremely) dysfunctional.

Summer in Tokyo
