People don’t have pets to leave them at home. Why should it be any different when they want to take an island holiday? Over the next few months, I’ll be developing a series of articles all about canines and their companions cavorting on beaches, hiking dormant volcanoes and sitting topside as they cruise through islands. Where to go, when to go and what to do – the series begins with a look at the endless beaches on the west coast of Vancouver Island, B.C., in and around Pacific Rim National Park.

P.S. I’m still looking for opinions on where I should go next – Maui or the Bahamas? What I’m hoping to get are ideas for an active, moderately-priced getaway that is a little off the norm (e.g. taking a mail boat to one of the Out Islands in the Bahamas for a kayaking excursion). Let me know if you have any suggestions!
