I have such a backlog of dog travel links for you (two weeks’ worth, plus a little!) that the only thing to do is tell you about them in the order they reached me — starting with the wonderful Maggie in Venice, mentioned in previous Chloe’s Clicks. The Imbodens have returned to Venice with Maggie, their Bearded Collie, and their recent posts include a view of their new home, a post about the logistics of flying with Maggie from New … Read more

For a change, I’ll go counter-clockwise around the U.S. this week, then head abroad. Let’s start with lovely Sanibel Island in Florida (still lovely, despite the adjectives-fail-me oil spill). Smart Poodle Publishing posted a fun article about renting a beach cottage on Sanibel — lots of pics, and a hearty recommendation for Beachview Cottages.
Heading west, Bukisa posted a short, helpful list of dog-friendly restaurants in Denver, CO. Keep going, and you end up in California: I learned this week, via … Read more
Writing a blog post on a World Cup weekend is like a tree falling in a forest, but I’m a faithful girl, and there are clicks to tell you about. The most tempting (and that’s saying something — it’s been a good week for dog-friendly links!) is a post from The Inner Workings of a College Graduate about a glorious week the author and her family spent at a dog-friendly beach rental on beautiful North Captiva Island. Great pictures, and … Read more
This week it’s all about fun places to visit with your dog! Let’s start inland, with a quick article from Doug Gelbert about taking your dog to the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico — I particularly like his suggestion of going for a night hike when the moon is full.
Thumbs up for sand, you say, but make it coastal. Smart Poodle Publishing has a dog-friendly beach suggestion for Hollywood, FL, along with some good photos, and Beach Lovers Guide … Read more
I took this photo a couple of weeks ago while we were visiting my in-laws in Florida. It looks exotic, doesn’t it? (Those of you from Florida are shaking your heads, but believe me, to someone from the Pacific Northwest, this looks like a tropical paradise.) Chloe’s just seen HER FIRST EGRET and HER FIRST TURTLE, both STANDING ON A LOG in the MIDDLE OF A POND, and she’s had to lie down to recover from all the excitement.
Mostly I include … Read more
We visited Sarasota, FL last week for a marathon opera weekend. No, Chloe is not an opera fan — but neither is my husband, so they cocooned together at the Hotel Indigo Sarasota, one in a chain of boutique hotels sprinkled around the country (with some outliers in Shanghai, London, Costa Rica and Mexico). It’s located only a couple of minutes away from the Opera House, and it’s a delightful place, so all three of us were happy. I should … Read more
Each week is a roll of the dice, of course, as far as interesting pet-friendly links go — this week is heavy on pet-friendly hotels, in the U.S. and abroad.
NileGuide posted a delicious article about eight luxury dog-friendly hotels around the world, from Crested Butte, Colorado to Rome, Italy. A new (to me) blog called Gotta Visit NYC: My New Yorkie Blog is about Yorkies Schmitty and Pudge and pet-friendly fun things to do in New York City — I … Read more
Today’s photo was taken about two years ago, at Neptune Beach in Jacksonville, Florida. Who doesn’t love an English Bulldog? Who can resist two English Bulldogs?? Leashed dogs are allowed on Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. They are allowed on Atlantic Beach anytime.
Please send me links to your favorite dog travel photos! They’ll get listed below, for everyone to click on and view. Here’s how it works:
Every Friday, I’ll put … Read more
It’s been a sad week for so many people, not least the family and friends of dog lover and acclaimed artist Stephen Huneck. Here’s an article from ohmidog! about Huneck, describing his most famous creation, Vermont’s Dog Chapel, his artwork, and his lifelong devotion to dogs.
One way to celebrate his life is to savor the kinds of dog-friendly opportunities that are available now but weren’t just a few years ago. Here’s one: Writing a guest post for … Read more
Visiting my in-laws recently in Brandon, a suburb of Tampa, Chloe and I were both happy to discover an excellent dog park in the nearby suburb of Seffner-Mango. I particularly liked it, of course, because it has an enormous small ‘n’ shy area, but it has many other positives to tell you about. It’s very large — 5 acres in total — and it’s thoroughly fenced and gated. The small dog area has its own pavilion for shade, as well … Read more
