Before the memory dims too much, I want to tell you about our morning in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. Designed by the same landscape architects responsible for Central Park, Prospect Park occupies a huge, 585-acre chunk of Brooklyn (Central Park, if you’re wondering, is 843 acres). When we went there, midmorning during the week, it was uncrowded and tranquil. Chloe, who loves Central Park, was in heaven here.

This week’s collection of dog travel links is a nicely-balanced blend of adventure and caution. On the adventure side, check out youdidwhatwithyourwiener‘s what-the-hell-why-not post about buying a dog trailer and taking it and the dogs for an inaugural bike ride from Mukilteo (just north of Seattle) to Langley (on the east side of Whidbey Island). The trip sounds like a total hoot — Langley was delightfully dog-friendly, and the dog trailer was a brilliant idea, and you have to read … 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
This post was handed to me out of the blue by a wonderful Dog Jaunt reader named Tara, living in Rome. She wrote a shorter version of it in a comment on a Chloe’s Clicks post, and I asked her if she’d mind if I turned her comment into a blog post. No problem, she said, and she gave me a few more details, and…hey presto! A fascinating blog post, with no effort from me. I love Dog Jaunt’s readers.
Last year I wrote a post about how the Four Seasons is the only hotel on Las Vegas’s Strip that accepts dogs. None of the casino hotels on the Strip welcomes dogs. In Reno, however, the story is a bit different. According to a letter to the editor of TheUnion.com, Reno’s Sands Regency Casino Hotel is pet-friendly — and sure enough, when you visit the casino’s web site, you learn that dogs are indeed allowed in the casino hotel (though … Read more
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
It’s all about Southern California this week — it’s been raining steadily in Seattle, so maybe my subconscious is nudging me towards the sunny south!
The first link is from San Diego’s Convention and Visitor’s Bureau site, which includes an entire section on dog-friendly locations and activities in San Diego. How useful — and rare — is that?! Check out its list of dog-friendly hotels, by neighborhood, and the short but useful lists of dog-friendly restaurants and beaches/parks.
Speaking … Read more
