  1. Okay this is so cute 🙂 I absolutely love your travel adventures anyway – but the photos of the two of them?! They’re all so gorgeous!

  2. You know I have never visited Indiana before now I am inspired an even more as I can bring my dog Bella with me. Loving all your pictures and your dogs are beautiful.

  3. It seems that this farm is made for dogs, with so many photo opportunities that Dexter and his friend took advantage fully. What a great little find! 🙂

  4. I love all the pictures! Fair Oaks Farm looks like an awesome place to visit. I love reading about pet friendly travel destinations, even if I’ll most likely never get there myself. With all the pets I have, plus work and such, we don’t really get to do much traveling.

  5. Love the pictures and it looks like the dogs had a blast! I think it’s wonderful what an effort Fair Oaks Farms made to make it so dog friendly. I imagine they get a lot more visitors because people no longer have to leave their pups at home.

  6. The puppies are so darn cute and photogenic! How nice is it that you and the dogs could both enjoy yourselves at the Farm! I wish I had more travel opportunities for my two pups in the Orlando area.

  7. wow, the place is so cute and awesome for pets. They will definitely love it. Cute dogs and that’s good that you can bring them with during vacation.

  8. What a fun place to see and SO many lovely photo ops! Very “Instagramable” LOL As vegans we always struggle with farms in general but …. I think this one might just be worth a drop in if we are ever in the area. A long way from Canada!

  9. Wow so so cute! I don’t have any experience travelling with pets but I love animals and think this is very sweet. Great article with so much information on where to explore!

  10. Fair Oaks Farm looks like an awesome place to visit! I love the pic of Dexter and Levi sitting in front of the silo! The wind is whipping their beautiful fur 🙂 Makes me want to visit – so lovely!

  11. I find visiting farms so relaxing. My sister has a 32-acre farm and I love to sit on the porch and watch the animals. This isn’t a life style I’d want, but it is comforting. Glad you found a great place to visit.

  12. First of all, your dogs are so adorable. Visiting farms must so interesting, most likely fun too, and I love you the look of your truck. I know someone who would love an old truck like that.
