This week’s collection of links is largely about destinations — check out these tempting posts from the Take Paws team about Austin, TX and Prescott, AZ (yes, tempting, though I have to say that Austin is bone-headed for not allowing pet dogs on its public transit); from petswelcome.com about Victoria, B.C.; and from K.S. Brooks and Pish, guest-posting on Have Dog Blog Will Travel, about dog-friendly Arkansas.
The Kimpton Crawl team wrote rapturous posts about the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, MA — Chloe and I were there too, just a few days earlier, and we loved walking along the Charles River (the river walk is just steps from the front door of the hotel). We didn’t have time to take out one of the hotel’s kayaks — but Sara, Marty and Oscar did, and here’s their report. Which leads, more or less, into my next link, a very helpful article in the Seattle Times about keeping your dog safe on or around the water.
Speaking of staying safe while doing stuff, here’s a good, basic post from petswelcome.com about keeping your dog comfortable and healthy on a camping trip.
I’ll leave you with a couple of interesting, miscellaneous links: Ashley Porter drew my attention to her article listing her “top 10 dog walking blogs,” and I caught sight of a review of “A Pug’s Tale,” a new book by author Alison Pace about “a plucky pug named Max on a crime fighting jaunt through the Upper East Side.”
