I’ll just admit up front that this is a low point in my life as a blogger: Reader Stefanie sent me two fantastic messages about this trip a year ago — yes, in June 2015 — and I am only now posting them on the blog. I have apologized to her, of course, and now we will all take a deep, cleansing breath together, swig from a mug of green tea, and stride mindfully into a future of timeliness.

As you know from previous posts, the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has multiple pet relief areas. I’ve visited one of the areas serving Terminal D, and reader Giuliana shared info and pictures from one of the areas serving Terminal C (there’s another outdoor pet relief area at the southern end of Terminal C, and there’s one serving Terminal A — if you visit them, please report!). In addition to its outdoor pet relief areas, DFW is also one of the … Read more
Speaking of reader Giuliana (responsible for my last post about JetBlue’s recent pet policy change), it’s high time I passed on her report about the pet relief area at Dallas Fort Worth International’s (DFW) Terminal C. You may recall that I’ve located and written about two of the pet relief areas serving DFW’s Terminal D, but I didn’t have time to get to the other areas at Terminals A and C. I asked for reports from any of you passing … Read more
Too many weeks have gone by, and the heap of pet travel links is spilling onto the floor. Time to get to work:
The oldest link in the stack is also the saddest. Blogger Helen Fazio, who writes Travels With My Dog, posted a cautionary tale about a friend’s dog, a retractable leash, and a really horrible death. Not too long ago, I wrote a quick post on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page about a similar near-miss I had just seen at … Read more
Reader Cheri, traveling with pups Lexie and Madison (a 5 lb. Maltese and a 7 lb. Yorkie, respectively), wrote to tell me that not all Dallas airports have heinous pet relief areas (I had posted an outraged report about the ones I found at DFW’s Terminal D). Dallas’s Love Field Airport has “a great pet relief area,” Cheri tells me, and it’s easy to find, too: “Exit the last baggage claim door, turn right, and you can’t miss it.”

Another small but choice collection of links this week (well, month, but who’s counting?) — starting with a hoot of a link from reader Chelsea, who rightly thought that I’d be enchanted by an article from the Austrian Times about a hotel offering city dogs “training courses in country life,” including “how to use a chairlift and how to avoid trouble with cows.”
Speaking of hazards, The Bark posted a useful article about the risks to dogs of foxtail grasses, and … 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.
It’s a small, but choice, collection of links this week, and they’re mostly about food. Atlanta now has an ice … Read more
Great news in my in-box this morning! Pet Airways, the pets-only airline (your pet travels in a carrier in the body of the plane, not underneath, and the flight attendants bring her drinks and peanuts) (I made that last part up, but they do check on your pet every 15 minutes) has added three destinations, all in Texas, to its list of flight cities. Flights to Houston, Austin and Dallas will begin this summer to all destinations in the Pet … Read more
When I had a layover in Dallas last week, I dashed out to look for pet relief areas. According to the DFW website, there are pet relief areas at all five terminals (A through E). I arrived at Terminal D, and had just enough time to locate one of the two Terminal D pet relief areas. [I’m returning to this post in July 2014 to report that Dallas now also has a pet relief area in Terminal D on the … Read more
The Kimpton Hotel Group has 54 properties in 16 states, and they’re all pet-friendly. We’ve stayed in a handful, in Boston, Seattle and Portland, and each has been a delight. They’re typically small- to medium-sized boutique hotels, each with a distinctive decor and an excellent attitude towards pets.
For starters, Kimpton hotels don’t charge a fee or require a deposit for visiting pets, and there is no limit on how much your pet can weigh. Each member hotel puts together its own … Read more
