Just a few links to share with you this week, which is a good thing, because there’s hardly any week left! Slipping in under the wire are a couple of dog-friendly beaches: Gracie’s Bark posted some wonderful pictures of Gracie and her Golden Retriever friend Cali playing at Crane Beach, near Ipswich, MA on the South Coast; and Dugs ‘n’ Pubs highlighted a dog-friendly beach (and a nearby dog-friendly pub) in Gullane, Scotland (about a half hour east of Edinburgh, on the south coast of the Firth of Forth).
Dog-friendly offices: Here’s a post from BlogHer that does a fine job of laying out the arguments for and against businesses allowing employees to bring dogs to work with them.
My favorite link this week, though, is from It’s a Vegan Dog’s Life, which reported on dog-friendly yurts across the U.S. This is totally the kind of post I would have written if I’d thought of it first — I love yurts, those round, lattice-framed structures originally used as portable housing by the nomadic peoples of Central Asia. They’re gaining popularity in the U.S. as an alternative form of housing, and as vacation structures. What a delight to find that someone else has done the research for me. Thanks so much, Molly!
