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.
Doggy TV: At any moment, there could be a squirrel. In between those moments, there are lizards.
It’s a small, but choice, collection of links this week, and they’re mostly about food. Atlanta now has an ice cream … Read more
I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this excited about a piece of dog travel news. I opened an update for Alaska Airline’s “Traveling with Pets” policy, and read that as of today, August 15, 2011, Alaska “will accept cats and dogs only for travel to and from Hawaii” (emphasis in the original). I kept reading, waiting for the inevitable sentence saying that in-cabin pets are not allowed, and it never appeared — so I called the airline, and … Read more

Friends of ours have a house in Maui and have kindly offered it to us as a vacation getaway. Fantastic! I thought, but how sad I’d be to leave Chloe behind. If we brought her with us, how sad to leave her in quarantine for the first five days of our visit (though it would be an excellent excuse to schedule a really long getaway). Our friends pointed out, however, that Hawaii’s new-ish (since 2003) quarantine program … Read more
[8/15/11 I’m thrilled to report that this post, and the two posts that preceded it, are now out of date. I’ve just learned that Alaska Airlines is now allowing small dogs and cats to travel in-cabin to Hawaii, as of today’s date.]
Back on January 14, I published a post offering you three options for taking a dog in-cabin to Hawaii — and then this past Thursday I had to post a correction, after a WestJet representative told me that my earlier … Read more

A few days ago I wrote a post about flying with an in-cabin dog to Hawaii — nearly impossible, I said, but I had found a couple of airlines that would allow it. Alas, one of those airlines, WestJet, has just written … Read more

Impossible, you say! Well, just about — but I think I have three options for you. A couple of days ago a Dog Jaunt reader posted a comment asking for help … Read more
Bringing a dog to Hawaii is not easy, but if you’re up for negotiating the quarantine rules (or, of course, if you’re a local dog-owner), take a look at this Star Bulletin article about dog-friendly Oahu.
Our friends at Petswelcome.com are also seeking out warm places, and this week posted two articles that caught my eye. The first is about dog-friendly places and activities in Charleston, SC — a city I’ve long wanted to visit — and the second is a … Read more
There are lots of vacation rental sites out there, so how do you choose among them? The local rental agencies I’ve used in Paris and Rome worked out fine, but didn’t make it easy to tell if a property is pet-friendly (on the other hand, the staff did respond rapidly to e-mail inquiries). Two of the bigger sites, however, do make it easy to identify pet-friendly properties, and they have inventory around the world. A good friend has used VRBO … Read more
