Ty and Buster, Life with Dogs’ travel correspondents, take you for a stroll around Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.

Buster: Since we’ve been on the west coast, I’ve become a beach bumnothing makes me as happy as running in the surf with the wind in my ears.

Ty: Ewwwwe – sand in my fur makes my skin crawl.

Buster: Fortunately, Carmel-by-the-Sea has something for all of us!

Ty: Yep, DogMa and DogPa loved walking the streets, admiring the houses and landscaping.

Ty: It’s true. In fact, we could only find one thing not to like about Carmel. The city park prohibits pets.

Buster: But, with a beach like that – really – who needs a park? Besides, there is a nice selection of pet friendly hotels with plenty of grass to sniff.
