For those of you thinking about sailing with a dog, take a look at Changing Pace, a blog written by a couple sailing down the United States’ East Coast in their 42′ cruiser Ishmael, with their son Ben and their Australian Shepherd Kooper. Please note that Kooper is not a small dog! And yet he, and they, seem to be having a fine time. You have to read through the entries to find the dog-specific bits (e.g., their 10/14/09 post about how they get Kooper on and off the boat), but that’s what changing pace is all about. Check out Skipper Bob’s guides for info about dog-friendly anchorages.
Last week the New York Times posted one of their tempting 36 Hours write-ups about Nashville (the Hermitage Hotel and Hutton Hotel are pet-friendly, as is the East Park Inn B&B, but the Union Station Hotel is not), and this week Go Pet Friendly posted an article about dog-friendly activities in downtown Nashville. Alright, already! We’ll go!
Meanwhile, And A Small Dog‘s Leila Coe was checking out Lighthouse Point Park, a dog-friendly park and beach located at the southern tip of Ponce Inlet on the Atlantic coast.
And it happened last week, but we only just heard the news: The New York Daily News reported that an 81 year-old Queens man is suing a local alehouse for being “too pet-friendly,” saying that his sex life was ruined after he injured himself falling over a Pomeranian.
