Large, but still workable, in-cabin pet carrier: Teafco Argo Petagon

Those of you who follow Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page will know that I first saw this carrier in a celebrity shot in the Daily Mail: Julianne Hough was carrying it through an airport, and my eyes lit up because in it was a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel just like Chloe.

Workable in-cabin carriers for larger small dogs are rare. I figured out the bag’s brand and model, bought one, and took it on a flight  … Read more

Reader’s report: Taking Spock to Berlin, from Miami, via Lufthansa

Simone first wrote to me back in April, to tell me that she was planning to take Spock, her 14-15 lb. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, from Miami to Berlin, via Frankfurt, on Lufthansa, and needed a pep talk about logistics. I cheered her on, and asked if she’d let me know how her trip went — and sure enough, she sent a marvelous report, packed with pictures of Spock in Berlin.

Reader’s report: Modifying a Southwest Airlines carrier to be taller

In last Wednesday’s blog post, I mentioned that while the in-cabin pet carrier that Southwest Airlines sells is a workable option, it’s improved by a modification a reader sent me.

Photo Friday: Puccini in Italy

A couple of weeks ago, I posted two pictures of Italian scoop law signs sent to me by reader Gail. When I thanked her for them, she sent me a couple of pictures of her pup Puccini (who, like Chloe, is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel weighing about 13-14 lbs.), and kindly agreed to let me post them on the blog.

Here’s Puccini, enjoying the view from Gail’s rental in Umbria:

I…just…this picture leaves me speechless.

And here she is on the  … Read more

Reader’s report: Dog-friendly Sheraton Hotel in Bellevue, WA

Bellevue, to the east of Seattle, across Lake Washington, is starting to steal a little of Seattle’s thunder. If nothing else, the parking is better on the east side of the lake, and the new-ish Bravern mall is the closest the Puget Sound area gets to glam. And being on the east side, it’s close to Microsoft and Google, and a host of smaller companies. I was happy, therefore, to get a report from reader Jennifer about her recent 4-day stay  … Read more
