To me, those animal seem otherworldly. They are not so much similar to domestic dogs as of a world of their own. They appear to be very tough. Here's to hoping that they continue to rock our world.

Like wolves and coyotes, they need to be tough to survive. But when you watch them, they really seem much like domesticated dogs.

Your Dog-Friendly Guide to Santa Barbara

Jhon Issac ·
I recently got a puppy shortly after my graduation. Living alone without having anyone to give my endless love was starting to bother me. Plus, as far as the word goes- A dog is a man's best friend, it's very true. So I got myself some time off from work and decided to travel to Santa Barbara. But I was in a real pinch. I have a four-legged friend who needs constant attention and care. I didn't have anyone to leave him behind with, and I personally didn't want to. So I decided to embark on...

My worst flight ever.... The guy behind me had 2 longhaired cats in a cage under my seat. Kept bringing each one out for a good scratch. You could see the stray hairs floating in the air. Sneeze....Sneeze.... But you're alternative sounds like a great idea !!

Re: Do Pets lower Travelers' Stress?

DrFumblefinger ·
Agree about pets on the plane -- with rare exception they don't belong there. The idea here is that these animals are scattered around the airport to provide folks with a point of stress relief. I sure we'll hear more about the program in the coming months.

One of the best things about reading travel blogs is getting a better, perhaps more real, view of things. All my mental images of polar bears are really cartoonish...sitting on sea ice or performing in Coke commercials, etc. To see your pictures of them, and their proximity to human habitation, gives me a different view—at the same time less exotic and more special. Thank you!

This trip has been on my bucket list for some time. Thanks for providing the vendor, by the way! It's only weather, PortMoresby -- that's what warm clothes are made for. It's a rare opportunity to see these magnificent animals in such numbers, and so very up close. They are massive mammals, males weighing up to 1500 pounds (700 kg). They are also one of the few animals in the world that will actively hunt man for food. Lions are the other species, I believe. I've not been to Churchill, but...

Was there any evidence of Global Warming ? Any anecdotes from the locals? Was there anything you wished you'd taken - but hadn't ? I presume the locals don't travel south that often - or do they ? You're blog gives a fresh insight into the area - very interesting.

Re: A Remote Canadian Village offers Indescribable Natural Discoveries

PHeymont ·
The National Wildlife Federation article I've linked HERE provides some information on your question, Garry. The sea ice on which polar bears live and hunt a good part of the year has been shrinking rapidly in recent years, leading to loss of habitat, population decline and behavior changes. They are perhaps the species most affected by global climate change.

Re: A Remote Canadian Village offers Indescribable Natural Discoveries

It is all but impossible to get trustworthy data on this from anyone. On the one hand, the alarmists want us to think the world is ending and the polar bears are at the brink of extinction. On the other, we hear polar bear populations are growing at a robust rate, like in this article in the National Post. On the one hand we hear the ice pack has all but disappeared and on the other we read articles that the Arctic ice pack is showing recovery, but not nearly as well as the Antarctic ice...
