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 … Read more
Back in October 2010, I wrote a post about the documents you need to re-enter the U.S. with your in-cabin dog. The CDC writes the rules for this situation, and they could be clearer. The CDC does not have any particular form in mind for the rabies certification incoming dogs are required to have. Similarly, if you’re continuing on a U.S. flight and your domestic carrier requires a general certificate of health, it’s not clear what that document should look … Read more
Though we pass through Atlanta fairly frequently (and who doesn’t?), I’ve never had a long enough layover to check out the pet relief areas, so I was very grateful to get reports and pictures from two Dog Jaunt readers.
According to the airport’s web site, ATL has two pet relief areas: “[A] 1,000-square-foot dog park is located in the Ground Transportation area on Terminal South outside of doors W1 and W2. The fully fenced-in park offers biodegradable bags along with flowers, grass, … Read more
This first link too should have been in last week’s Chloe’s Clicks, but it got lost in my in-box (“Hi, I’m Mary-Alice, and I have an in-box problem”). The inventor of three dog-powered pulled devices (a scooter, a trike and a skateboard) pointed me to his site — I don’t know what to make of it, and never will, since Chloe’s way too small for any of these devices, but I’m impressed by his ingenuity.
Also ingenious? A new album from … Read more
Matching my cheerful mood here on a beautiful, perfect fall day in Paris, all of the dog travel links I have for you this week are fun and inspiring. Consider the following fall getaways for you and your pup:
A stroll through Atlanta’s Winn Park, brought to you by Diane and Cosmo of To Dog with Love;
A dog-friendly hike in Oregon’s McKenzie River Valley (trail blazed by Pippin the Golden Retriever, and his human Kyla Merwin Cheney, posting on Travel Oregon … Read more
This week’s Chloe’s Clicks starts with a time-sensitive link: The second-ever Surf City Surf Dog competition is scheduled for next weekend at California’s Huntington Beach. Even if you don’t plan to attend, check out the photo from last year’s competition!
Speaking of Orange County, the O.C. Register reports that a Lake Forest restaurateur with an unusual idea — a café that not only allows dogs to join diners at an outdoor patio but also provides a doggy play area for them … Read more
Is it just me, or are you also noticing that there are more pet travel news stories each week? This week’s Chloe’s Clicks promises to be epic.
Let’s start with interesting places to visit. The Thunderbird Inn, which welcomes dogs as guests, covered itself in glory this week by putting together a video highlighting dog-friendly things to do in Savannah, GA. Love the idea, love the dogs in the horse-drawn carriages! Heading up the coast, clever publicists for Virginia wine-makers make … Read more
This week’s first link makes me happy — it’s a standing ovation from Small and Chic in Cville for the very dog-friendly Hotel Palomar (a Kimpton hotel) in Atlanta, GA. Author Jeannine reveled in the doggie swag and pampering (as did Baxter the dog) and her pictures are fun.
Across the country, a Chandler, AZ restaurant is fighting to stay dog-friendly. Iguana Mack’s has allowed leashed dogs to keep their owners company on its patio for the past eight years — … Read more
Pet Airways just announced that it has added Phoenix, Omaha and Atlanta to its list of flight cities. Looking at their map of service, those additions make sense. I’m still looking forward, however, to the day that they add Seattle to the line-up!
This week’s links will send you all over the country, from Georgia to San Diego, Austin to Portland. Here goes, starting with the Peach State….
RVing the East wrote about Georgia’s A.H. Stephens Historic Park, about 40 miles east of Atlanta, which includes a campground with a pet-friendly cabin, a noted Civil War museum, and Stephens’ historic home (ca. 1875), open for tours. Also in Georgia, a new dog park opened not only at Hartsfield-Jackson airport but also at the South Fulton … Read more
