She did it. My mom made it all the way from Poulsbo, WA to Rome…with an 82 pound Golden Retriever. Thankfully, the hard part was over once they arrived. After that it was sightseeing, eating and strolling. (Plus we both got new boots–thanks Mom!) Think she enjoyed her first trip to Italy and can’t wait to see her again later this summer. By that time she’ll be a grandma!
