And, now, ladies and gentleman, The Road Forks is proud to welcome its newest little sister . . . .
Drum roll, please . . . . [lights dim and the snare drum thrums]
Lights up . . . .
[And the crowd goes wild, men toss their hats in their air, and women clap their begloved hands for the shiny new member of The Road Forks family.]

Yes, my friends, Patrick and I have launched a new blog named The Road Unleashed , focused on our travels with dogs across the United States and Europe.
We look for different things now than when we travel alone: a restaurant should have good food and also a pet-friendly patio; hikes must offer great views and be comfortable for eight paws to manage; and, lodging must welcome dogs.
My plan is to post twice a week (or so), with topics focused on:
- Sit/Tips and Tricks: Suggestions for how to travel with pets, including visas, vaccination issues, helpful gear and useful websites
- Heel/Places: Straight-up reviews of pet-friendly cities, restaurants, hotels, parks, and attractions.
- Wag/Inspiration: Stories from other pet-loving travelers
- Look/Candid Canine: Photography of our favorite traveling pups and other pups on the road.
