Sooke BC or Bust

Posted by avatar on January 22, 2014

We just got back from a little weekend getaway to Sooke, BC. We usually go there twice a year to see my really close Friend and her Son. They live right on the ocean, with breath taking views of the local beach. Sammy and Jake just love it there.

The one thing Sammy and Jake love is ear diving into smelly fish..YUCK! Then they stink the guest house up with such an awful smell. This year I decided to bring some essential oils, Lemon Eucalyptus to help kill the icky smell of dead fish off of their fur. It seemed to work…They really needed a bath but being at someone else’s house I didn’t want to use their towels etc. The essential oil was a a good alternative and really helped masks the smell.  I’m not suggesting to the world that they should do this, I’m just sharing my story of how it worked for me. Not all dogs like the strong smell of essential oils. It’s good though to keep something with you that your dogs can tolerate the smell of for that time when you really need it 😀

If you’re into camping and taking your pooch along I would suggest French Beach and or Jordan River for a little getaway. If you’re looking for a B&B and or Hotel, check out this site. http://www.explorevancouverisland.com/Pet_Friendly.htm
