But life is risky. And a life worth living is even more risky. Physical challenges, traveling, and even falling in love all entail risk.
I’m trying to figure out what’s acceptable risk. And when to avoid it and when to embrace it.
If I had been the fisherman in this video, I probably would have had my dog tethered to the boat for safety. Or I might have chosen a route that would take me away from the whale to avoid risk of capsize or injuring the whale. But then I would have missed the experience of these two dogs and their person.
And that would be a shame.
Best City for Pet Travelers
My nomination for Cape May, NJ as the best city for pet travelers is just your vote (and yours and yours) away from making it into the final four.
So head over to the brackets at the Go Pet Friendly blog and cast your vote for Cape May over St. Petersburg as best city for pet travelers.
Your dog will thank you. After all, where would you want to be in July if you had a fur coat? Cape May with an average high temperature of 86 degrees and a cool ocean breeze? Or St. Petersburg with an average high temperature of 90 degrees locked up in a stuffy bay?
I think you know what to do. Go vote.
