It’s a popular sentiment, but one that my dog doesn’t buy into.
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end. – Ernest Hemingway
He generally hates the journey, especially if it’s in the car. I guess when there’s a 50/50 chance of the journey ending somewhere bad (there’s four places we take him – the vets, the boarding kennels, holidays with the people, cool new places for walks) you’ve got to hedge your bets.
