When you learn that Ink48 is a Kimpton hotel, you know that of course it’s pet-friendly, and that means, among many other things, that there’s no pet fee — an important point in a spendy town like New York. This particular Kimpton may also be a hair less expensive than the other NYC Kimptons, and if I’m right about that, I’ll make another guess that it’s because it’s in a neighborhood that’s a hair farther away from the bright lights … 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
San Francisco has such great dog parks. I’ve heard joyous reports about Crissy Field (leashed or voice control dog walking allowed “excluding the Wildlife Protection Area at the west end of Crissy field beach where leashes are required all year except from May 15 to July 1”); we loved the Bernal Heights dog park; and today we were struck dumb by Fort Funston.
Reader Kate posted a note this week on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page about the pet relief area at Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and kindly agreed that I could turn it into a quick blog post, so it wouldn’t disappear into the mists of Facebook. She reported that she and her daughter and pup Lambert located one of two pet relief areas at RNO (called, bless ’em, the “Gate K-9 Bark Park”):
There is one on each end of the terminal. The signage … Read more
“Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!” It’s Chloe’s Clicks — on a Tuesday! Being a week and a half late with the dog travel links probably doesn’t qualify as a disaster of biblical proportions, but I surely do like the quote.
In the last bunch of links, I praised Yakima’s new “Wine Doggies” site, designed to help visitors with dogs — this week I’m pleased to report that the Isle of Wight has just published a guide (“Pawprint”) … Read more
The last dog-walking hip bag I really liked was the OllyDog Walker, but it’s no longer available and there are days — especially hot days — when I look at it and think dang, that’s huge. I was happy, therefore, to catch a glimpse of the Citizen Canine, a new waist pack from Tom Bihn. Tom Bihn is a Seattle company I love — we own a range of their products, including their TSA-friendly laptop bag, the Imago messenger bag I … Read more
This week’s collection of dog travel links is a very mixed bag — sure, there are a couple of straightforward pieces, like a useful list from petswelcome.com of dog parks in the Richmond, VA area, and a post from the Take Paws team about their excellent day with their dogs in Avila Beach, CA. But then things get more off the wall, starting, innocently enough, with the Take Paws gang, who wrote about walking across the Golden Gate bridge together … Read more
I relaxed a little too much this weekend, and failed to write my Chloe’s Clicks post yesterday. Never mind — here it is, and it’s a good one.
We begin with a terrific series of posts that Edie Jarolim, blogging at Will My Dog Hate Me?, wrote about her recent flight from Tucson to San Diego (and back, of course) with her dog Frankie. Edie is a wonderful writer, and she handles her issues (anxiety over Frankie) and Frankie’s issues (diabetes, … Read more
It’s all about the destinations this week. I’ll start in New England (well, -ish, because the article touches down all over the United States, but it starts in New England) with a PDF from Fido Friendly about ten lovely and dog-friendly B&B inns (when the link comes up, click on the picture to reach the article, in PDF format).
Moving clockwise around the U.S., PetsWelcome.com posted a useful list of fenced dog parks in Raleigh, NC, the Take Paws team visited … Read more
Two weeks ago, the news was about Maryland’s Dining Out Growth Act of 2011, which would let Maryland restaurants welcome patrons accompanied by dogs to outdoor dining areas. It looks very much as though the Maryland General Assembly has approved the measure, clearing the way for Maryland restaurant owners to join their Florida, California and Minnesota colleagues. This week’s news, per krqe.com, is that New Mexico may add itself to the list. Which state will be next?
Here’s a dog-friendly restaurant … Read more
