TRAVELS WITH MAC 'N' ROW
This book is first and foremost a love story between me and my wonderful dog Mac. As you will learn when you read our book, Mac came into my life when she was just about two years old and she turned twelve in April, 2013 - so she and I have been together for over ten years. Six years ago, I bought a house in the south of France and Mac has been traveling with me since then. We spend about half the year in France and the other half of the year in the southern United States. I first started thinking of doing a book about my travels with Mac over a year ago. On occasion, during a trip here or there, I'd post a picture on Facebook of Mac in some wonderful location and would be inundated with comments back from friends saying that they wished they had the life that Mac has had and that she was better traveled than most people. Late last year, I began to plan my retirement and thought that as Mac is also reaching her own "retirement" age, it would be nice to pay a tribute to her for all she has done to make my life better. Because we have been fortunate enough to visit so many wonderful places in southern Europe, we also thought this book could serve as a travel guide for those wishing to travel with or without their pets in southern Europe. We have also tried to give useful information about pet travel. Finally, we wanted to raise awareness (and money) for animal rescue - a cause we are very committed to. Our story starts with me rescuing a dog - but by the time you finish the book - you will learn that she really rescued me.
