We have yet to break the news to the doggies about their imminent departure from the west coast. Another reason why it was great to spend some time in Ucluelet / Tofino this past weekend. Mara and Ralphie had a great time chasing birds along the tidal flats below our cabin in Ucluelet, and chasing around on Wickaninnish Beach following our wedding ceremony (pictures to come soon).
There is some good news for the soon-to-be urban dogs, however. I have read in my Lonely Planet Toronto City Guide, that Toronto dogs are allowed on the subway! Moreover, "[u]nlike many western cities where hounds are tied up on the sidewalk, Toronto's mutts can freely access shopping malls, supermarkets, cafes, the PATH network and the subway."
