I only have a handful (heck, less than a handful) of dog travel links for you this week — here we go, and, for a few more moments, Happy Halloween!
Petswelcome.com offers three great suggestions for dog-friendly weekend trips from New York City, including inns in the Hamptons and the Finger Lakes, and a resort in the Catskills. The Take Paws team spent a night in NYC, at Ink48 (a Kimpton hotel in Midtown Manhattan). Located in a former printing house, the hotel impressed the Burkerts with its dog-friendly amenities.
Across the Atlantic, two Blue Merle Border Collies (Blue and Smudge) are blogging at The Dog’s Blog about their life at the Bolehill Holiday Cottages in Derbyshire’s Peak District. Their report about a walk they took this week caught my eye, but I was happy to learn about the holiday cottages (within easy reach of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall) — I’m always thrilled to see an inn or hotel making this kind of effort to appeal to visitors with dogs.
I’ll leave you with a picture from PopSugar of actress Leighton Meester making her way through airport security with a dog. I love the disembodied hand patting the pup, and I’m stunned by the boots — how did she get out of them? How will she get them back on and still have time to get to her plane??
