There is a sign for Muddy Paws Canine Center. If you pass Durand Ford/Toyota car dealership, you have gone too far!

Note to RVers coming from New Hampshire or the east !!!! – Oversize vehicles will not fit under the bridge or be able to make the turn on Route 123 when coming from Route 12 in New Hampshire. The Villas Bridge in Walpole NH that crosses to Bellows Falls VT has also been closed to traffic. Follow the detour signs and cross from Route 12 in NH to Bellows Falls VT and then follow signs for Route 5 South, which will bring you back down to Westminster and Muddy Paws Canine Center. Do not blindly follow your GPS !!
