Reader Liberty posted this picture on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page on September 21, and before the pixels had a chance to settle I begged her to write a guest post about what she’d done to create such a gorgeous and safe-looking bike system for her and her two dogs:
She kindly agreed, wrote her post immediately, and here it is, at too darned long-last (the photo captions are mine).… Read the rest
Paris’s citywide bike-on-demand system was just being installed the last time we visited, and we exclaimed in disbelief as impeccably dressed people (including women in skirts and heels —but not helmets, no, never helmets) launched themselves into the maelstrom of traffic on the Rue de Rivoli.… Read the rest

I’d love to see how you and your pup spent your time together this week — please post your photos on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page so we can all see them!… Read the rest
Today’s photos were sent to me by reader Meg, who lives in Geneva, Switzerland with Cooper, her five month-old Jack Russell Terrier puppy.
This one’s a tiny bit blurry, but I’m so glad Meg sent it — isn’t it wonderful?!
I’d love to see your pup, and hear what you’ve been up to together this week — please post your photos on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page so we can all enjoy them!… Read the rest

It’s probably too soon to be thinking about spring, but yesterday was a truly glorious day in Seattle — one that called out for a bike and, yes, a small dog. Last spring, I wrote a post about several bike carriers (and, alternatively, carrying your dog in a backpack carrier).… Read the rest
Dog Jaunt’s giveaway of an Outward Hound backpack carrier is still underway, so I have backpacks on my mind. This week’s photo charms me, not only because the guy loves his dog enough to bring him biking, but also because the dog is wearing Doggles dog goggles (love ’em!… Read the rest
A while back, I posted a description of Waterbite portable water and implored its maker to package it in TSA-friendly 3-oz. packages. No progress on that front, but my mother had the brilliant idea of re-packing the gel into the small (2-oz.)… Read the rest
In September 2009, San Jose’s Mercury News reported the death of a walker on the Los Alamitos Creek Trail who fell and hit her head when she became entangled in the leash of a passing dog, tethered to a bicyclist.… Read the rest
I thought that dog goggles were a gimmick until I read that search and rescue dogs wear them to protect their eyes from debris and toxic substances.
