Pet travelers from around the country are voicing their opinions on the Best City for Pet Travelers, and we’re down to thirty-two competitors remaining in the tournament.
There were some nail-biters again in in Round 2! Portland, ME(Lisa H.) put up a good fight, but couldn’t keep up with Charleston, SC (Allison R.), and Tampa, FL(Ruth D.) gave Virginia Beach, VA (Donna W.) a run for it’s money, but didn’t quite close it out. Seattle, WA (Kiomi C.) just barely made it past little Salida, CO(Catherine M.), and Hilton Head, SC (Beth B.) finished strong against Prescott, AZ(Alan C.).
We were surprised to see Austin, TX (Vicki An.) get knocked out by a very determined Fredericksburg, VA (Jennifer J.) and Bozeman, MT(Justin R.)easily handle Chicago, IL(Sugar G.).
We’re looking forward to some great match-ups in Round 3 – get ready for a wild ride to the Sweet 16!
