Can you tell that I’m already making plans for our next vacation? Back in 2009 I pointed you towards Landmark Trust and National Trust vacation rental properties in the U.K. (and elsewhere, including, blissfully, France and Italy) that welcome pet dogs, and a few months later I added a post about Scotland’s dog-friendly National Trust vacation rental properties. I remember (or I think I do, at least) looking for similar options in Ireland, and not finding them.
How happy I was … Read more
About a week ago, fellow blogger Gigi Griffis posted a link on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page to a post she’d written about traveling with her pup Luna in the Flanders region of Belgium. She mentioned that they had “couchsurfed” in Ghent — that is, they found a place to stay through the peer-to-peer site CouchSurfing. When I looked at the site in 2010, there was no way to search up front for pet-friendly homes (though you could generally see if … Read more
This week’s Chloe’s Clicks comes to you from sunny Florida — to be precise, from inside, looking out at sunny Florida, which is not only sunny but also freaking hot. Note to self: Dream house must have floor-to-ceiling windows, purely for Chloe’s sake.
Doggy TV: At any moment, there could be a squirrel. In between those moments, there are lizards.
It’s a small, but choice, collection of links this week, and they’re mostly about food. Atlanta now has an ice cream … Read more
It’s a very miscellaneous week on Chloe’s Clicks. One link, though, hearkens back to a past Chloe’s Clicks — remember that I told you about musician Danny Kean, who tours North America (and elsewhere) with a piano and a dog named Mo? How surprised I was to learn that they came to my neighborhood in Seattle — I totally missed them, but they were here.
There’s a bit of continuity, too, in a clutch of links about New York City — … Read more
Remember when VRBO was kind of edgy? When you wondered whether it was really a reliable way to make your vacation plans? VRBO and HomeAway now feel like solid, dependable resources, and their sites reflect their maturity. Among other things, you can search for properties using a variety of parameters (including whether a property is pet-friendly) to narrow your choices. To find edgy now, you need to look at a new crop of sites offering couch space, floor space, rooms, … Read more

We’ve decided to spend a couple of weeks in Paris this fall, and we’re bringing Chloe with us. I’ll be writing a series of posts about our trip; this one focuses on finding a dog-friendly apartment to rent. (We’ve enjoyed the hotels we’ve stayed in in Paris, but for a longer trip — anything, really, over just a few days — we recommend renting an apartment. It’s cheaper and way more fun.)
Given how open Parisians are to … Read more
