Oh, who's a good dog??


Hi, I'm Jasmine and I am a 2 1/2 year old American Akita and my main job was taking care of my mom while she combatted Stage Four breast cancer. I'm happy to say (see my tail wagging?) that mom is now cancer free and even though I am still here for mom, I get some fun time in as well, like going to the beach in Rocky Point every chance my family can get there. The Why Not Travel Store is always a stop for us, both coming and going (coming for my family and mostly 'going' for me!!)


Congratulations Jasmine! You have earned the honorary title of Why Not Travel Store’s Pet of the Month.  Your parents will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Why Not Travel Store and because of your service dog status, the Why Not Travel Store will be donating $100 to Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research in your's and the store's name.
