Each week is a roll of the dice, of course, as far as interesting pet-friendly links go — this week is heavy on pet-friendly hotels, in the U.S. and abroad.
NileGuide posted a delicious article about eight luxury dog-friendly hotels around the world, from Crested Butte, Colorado to Rome, Italy. A new (to me) blog called Gotta Visit NYC: My New Yorkie Blog is about Yorkies Schmitty and Pudge and pet-friendly fun things to do in New York City — I found the blog by way of a post reviewing the pet-friendly New Yorker Hotel, near Madison Square Garden.
An unexpected source (the New Haven Railroad Blog) posted an article about pet-friendly places to stay in Ayr, Scotland, and a couple of now-forgotten links led me to the sites for a couple of attractive hotels — one a group of holiday cottages in Cornwall, and the other an apparently rare pet-friendly hotel in Istanbul.
On to posts about dog-friendly getaways! The first is offManhattan‘s post about seven weekend-worthy, pet-friendly hotels within easy reach of New York City. I particularly appreciate the paragraph at the end of each entry describing how to reach the hotel using pet-friendly public and alternative transit. The other link I have for you describes four dog-friendly beaches in Florida.
On the lighter side of pet travel, People Pets posted a delightful collection of pictures of celebrities traveling with their pets — celebrities don’t always follow the rules about keeping pets in carriers inside airports, it turns out, but many of them appear to own carriers, so I call that a win. Hilary Duff and Ashley Greene set the best example.
And finally, even I realize that there are times when you just can’t bring your dog with you. Take a look at a recent post from Will My Dog Hate Me about choosing the best petsitter for your beloved pooch.
