CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Dog Trots Globe — To Paris & Provence (Hardcover book) Review & Giveaway!!



This is the story of Chula, a Shet­land Sheep­dog who trav­els to France, from Cal­i­for­nia, at the grand old age of nine. It chron­i­cles her adven­tures from Provence, to Paris, and back home again. There is even a handy hints and tips for trav­el­ling on an aero­plane with a dog which is extremely help­ful!! This book was writ­ten about Chula’s point of view when travelling.

As a pet owner, I could really appre­ci­ate the humor­ous slant that the dog’s per­spec­tive gives.

Dog Trots Globe – To Paris & Provence does what every travel book aspires to: it con­vinces a reader who has never vis­ited a place to want to go and evokes mem­o­ries in those who have already been there. Toss in over 150 col­or­ful pho­tographs and a beau­ti­ful Shet­land Sheep­dog and you have an enchant­ing travel book!!





Author Sherry Long is not at all unfa­mil­iar to Pet travel. 8 years ago she started trav­el­ing across coun­try with her then 9-month-old Sheltie, Chula, get­ting her accus­tomed to and com­fort­able with the new expe­ri­ences that occur on a daily basis while trav­el­ing with your prescious dog, your best friend!

As over­seas travel with dogs appears to be sprout­ing wings (thank­fully), Sherry has come out with a book on her expe­ri­ence trav­el­ing to and in France – or should I say her dog Chula has? I per­son­ally detest leav­ing my dogs at home when I am off trav­el­ing, and yearn for them every sin­gle day that I am with­out them!! Dog Trots Globe is one dog’s view on the won­ders of the mar­kets, the fields and the sausages of Provence and the some­what less joie de vivre expe­ri­ence of Paris due to lim­its on where you can take your dog. Dogs are not allowed to expe­ri­ence art at the Lou­vre, but most restau­rants will allow them to dine inside if you ask prior to vis­it­ing!! :)






Chula endured a bit of a walk on the wild side, boldly snatch­ing a baguette from a shopper’s bag as the deli­cious aroma must have been too tempt­ing! Every day was a new adven­ture – even the scary one in the South of France involv­ing thou­sands of ani­mals Chula had never seen before, and that was a bit much for her accord­ing to Sherry, but Chula gamely con­quered her fears when she met these crea­tures later in the countryside!






This book is not dull or bor­ing, that’s for sure!! Pack with the most excel­lent adven­tures, I rec­om­mend that every­one own a copy!!

You can find this phe­nom­e­nal book called Dog Trots Globe at Ama­zon and iTunes in book, e-book or enhanced e-book for­mats. The research and exten­sive infor­ma­tion on pet travel to France and the prepa­ra­tion that involves is at the publisher’s site.



Now retired, Sherry Long founded and directed The Hampton-Brown Com­pany, a ” lead­ing pub­lisher of lan­guage and lit­er­acy mate­ri­als” K-12.  She served as CEO for National Geo­graphic School Pub­lish­ing after National Geo­graphic bought the com­pany in 2006.
