If you stay at Super 8 motels, they have a "Pets with Permission" policy. Usually, these will be smoking rooms, even if your dog doesn't smoke. But call ahead and it will be fine. So now that we are all in agreement on the 1) Dogs crossing the border issue whether they are or are not wormed, vaccinated, carrying a passport or sidearm, border collie or other breed and 2) the pursuit of passports and the speed and difficulty in using them once or twice (for return trip to US) let's now address canoes. Lucky for those canoes already living with their families in Canada they can continue sleeping through this discussion. And apparently if you are planning to enter Canada's unguarded shores along waterways there will be no one watching for your citizenship and potential mischief. What about taking a Canoe from WI to Ontario. In 1946 mine was build in Peterborough and it just wants to see home again so I agreed to get it varnished and sew it a new outfit for the occasion. While I think it will be doubtful that it's siblings will remember it, I think it will have a good time and make some new friends. I purchased it in New York 2 years ago and drove it to my place in WI. Do I need some kind of proof going to Canada that it's mine? That I didn't buy it just then and have to pay tax on it or some such goofy thing? What about getting it back home with me? Will I be asked to prove that it's mine not stolen? Will I have to prove I am not a business transporting goods for sale across the border? I know K. Klos has some experience with this which is why I think NOW is a good time for us all to know what will be required of us. If it is going to be difficult, I may not bring it. It would be a real shame since it is so nice and the assembly is in the place where the canoe was made. Let's get some experts in on this one. I don't want to get a canoe comfiscated, it's bad enough when they take your lotion and knitting needles.
