Pet Talk: Pets like summer camping too

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, camping during the springtime can be a perfect weekend getaway.  However, if you don’t want to leave your four-legged friends behind while setting out on your adventure, try bringing them along.
“Many campgrounds allow pets, with certain rules and regulations,” said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.

Editor’s note: I’ve been going to STR8 Training for six weeks to better myself and record what it’s like to join a personal training regimen. This is what I’ve learned and how I’m feeling six weeks later.
