I am writing this week’s Chloe’s Clicks on an Amtrak train heading north from New York City — which means, alas, that I don’t have Chloe with me. When, oh, when, will Amtrak decide to re-allow pet dogs on board — at least small ones in carriers, at least on short trips??
And now to the reason you started reading this post, starting with the most serious pet travel link and getting goofier from there. USA Today posted a useful summary … Read more
We could have hustled right down to New York City after my niece’s graduation ended last weekend, but instead I organized a couple of nights in Hudson, NY, about an hour south of Albany. The draw had been Olana, artist Frederick Edwin Church’s gorgeous 19th c. home and grounds, which I’ve long wanted to visit (the grounds are dog-friendly — pack a tick collar! pack whatever tick protection your vet recommends — ours, it turns out, recommends Frontline+, feeling that … 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.
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
You may have noticed that the blog has been quiet for a while (and that I’ve admitted defeat and titled this Chloe’s Clicks “recent” rather than “this week’s”). I have a good reason — a very good reason indeed — and I’ll announce it as soon as possible. In the meantime, forgive me. I’ll get back in gear on the blog — and don’t miss the news and chat on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page.
The troubles at Pet Airways made the … Read more
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
Egads! I’m barely squeaking this in before the weekend ends! Let’s start with a fine idea from the folks at Raleigh Pop, who have found a way to make the summer concerts in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park dog-friendly. Good thinking, ladies!
Also in the “good thinking” category? The Hiway Dog program, created by Wisconsin resident Mary Gensen and promising to become a nationwide phenomenon. The idea is that dog-friendly businesses located along highways will post the Hiway Dog symbol on their highway … 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
