This post was inspired by an article in the November 2011 issue of Vanity Fair, entitled “Americana Resorts: Revisiting America’s historic grand hotels.” They’re pricey — oh, heavens, yes — but they’re fabulous, and many of them open their doors to pets (generally small ones, but The Point, The Broadmoor and the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa have no weight maximums, and The Grove Park Inn and The Stanley Hotel welcome fairly big dogs).

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
