This post was inspired by a chat with reader Jenna, who gave me breakfast just before she and Tara, her French Bulldog, left Paris for the Loire Valley. A tremendous researcher, she had created a Google map of all the dog-friendly Paris locations she’d learned about; and, separately, she’d made some notes from a post of mine about reader Christie’s experiences at several châteaux.… Read the rest

Oh, it’s a mixed bag this week. I can point you to a totally charming story about dogs (and cats) cleverly using Russian and British public transit to visit favorite food sources — but I also have to tell you about an unpleasant incident on a London Midland train, where a passenger and her West Highland White Terrier were both bitten by “a small terrier” belonging to another passenger. … Read the rest
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway I announced last Monday for a fully-loaded Citizen Canine dog-walking hip pack! I loved your recommendations for dog-friendly restaurants, attractions and hotels — which I’ll list below, so they’re more easily found than in the comments on the giveaway post — and I loved your enthusiasm.… Read the rest

I’m indebted to @Andrea_Arden, the source of the first two links in this week’s collection. She found an NY1 article about a new pet resort near Porland, Maine called The Inn by the Sea. It sounds enchanting — take note: “The best time for a dog lover to take a vacation at the resort is in October when the beach is no longer off limits.… Read the rest
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.… Read the rest
I’ll start with the most time-critical link: Inspired by the legendary Burning Man event, held every year in Nevada, a Santa Cruz resident known for planning dog events is holding the first-ever Burning Dog Festival near Big Sur, CA. The event will include dog-friendly hikes and agility classes, sightseeing trips, numerous outdoor eating opportunities (including a luau!),… Read the rest
