I’m playing favorites this week — because I can — and starting with a gem of a post from YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner.com about snowshoeing with a small dog — it’s the first in a promised series, and I’m eager to see the rest. Speaking of embracing the wintry outdoors, here’s a post from petswelcome.com about dog-friendly hiking trails in Canada, specifically, Grand Prairie (Alberta), Ottowa, Toronto, and Brandon and Carberry (Manitoba).
If, instead, your plan is to dodge the wintry and seek out … Read more
This was shaping up to be an epic Chloe’s Clicks last week — and then I missed posting it — so now it’s epic times two. Here we go, in no particular order.
The oldest link in the collection is a report from Laura Stephenson about her post-college road trip from Guatemala to Nicaragua and back — which I include because of its general can-do attitude and because she traveled with her dog Chispa. Also off the beaten track? Zuma’s Paw … Read more
This week’s links take you to dog-friendly spots all over the world, introduce you to dog travel writers, and highlight an interesting pet carrier.
Starting in the middle(ish) of the U.S. and spiraling outwards: The Indiana Dunes hosted a helpful guest post with notes about a dog-friendly nature preserve, beach, and restaurants in the Indiana Dunes country (just east of Gary, and Chicago, on the Lake Michigan shore). Fido Friendly suggests visiting Rock City Gardens, in Chattanooga, TN, with your dog (“an enchanted, … Read more
This week it’s nearly entirely about places to go with your dog, with two exceptions: The first is a useful post from Wildfowl Magazine about traveling with hunting dogs. Given how hard they work, and how wet they get, hunting dogs have special needs that I know nothing about. I appreciate the practical details, and the view into a different world of dog travel.
The second is a welcome announcement from Edie Jarolim, of Will My Dog Hate Me?, that she … 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
What can I say? The holidays got ahead of me this time. Better late than never, though — you wouldn’t want to miss these links.
It’s all about the snow, this time of year, so you won’t be surprised that My Pet News has five pet-friendly ski resorts for you to consider, from Vermont to Wyoming (and then north to Lake Louise). Also consider two inns, one in Connecticut and the other in Ohio: The Interlaken Inn in Lakefield, CT reported that they’ve just … 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.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a review of Narrow Dog to Carcassonne, describing a British couple’s voyage in their canal boat from England’s West Midlands to southern France. I mentioned that I had found it by chance, in the course of looking for (and failing to find) an entirely different book, Irreverent Curiosity. A day later, David Farley, the author of Irreverent Curiosity, contacted me by e-mail and thanked me for my interest in his book. I assured … Read more
Last Friday’s post was all about boating safety with a dog, and this week’s…is not. This picture was taken in August 2008 in Venice, and it makes me smile. Speaking of Venetian dogs, Maggie in Venice, a blog I recommended back in February, is still going strong — great videos and photos, as well as useful tips about places to enjoy with your own pooch. If nothing else, you have got to see the Imbodens’ photo-essay about Venice’s “hard-working” dogs.
