Correction
Camp Unleashed is in Massachusetts.
Our story, “Is Your Dog Camp-Ready?” (in the July/August 2009 issue of The Bark), includes advice from Annie Brody, founder of Camp Unleashed.

Web Extras & Exclusives: July/Aug 2009
Good stuff we couldn't quite fit into our July 2009 issue.
You know how when you order a milkshake at an old-fashioned ice cream parlor the really good soda jerks always manage to make a little too much, which they let you have to replenish your drink. That’s how we see Web Extras.
