Photo Friday: Dog travel photos

Photo Friday, and reader’s report about pet relief areas at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport (ORD)

It’s been a long time since I’ve transited through Chicago’s O’Hare airport, so I was very glad to hear from reader Rebecca that things are different now. Let’s start with the Photo Friday part of this post, because Keeney, Rebecca’s Cavapoo, will make you smile:

Rebecca and Keeney had a layover in ORD recently, and Rebecca tells me travelers with pets no longer have to make do with the (very lovely) lawn of the airport Hilton.… Read the rest

Photo Friday: Layla and The Calusa Queen

Reader Marci sent me an e-mail this week, letting me know about a dog-friendly cruise she took in Punta Gorda, FL (located across the harbor from Port Charlotte; about an hour’s drive south of Sarasota). Here’s what she told me:

Photo Friday: Chloe and the squirrels

Last week we were with my in-laws in Tennessee; this week we’re with my family in central Ohio. Chloe loves it here, partly because she likes my parents but largely, it has to be said, because they have French doors that overlook their back yard — and they have a back yard full of squirrels.… Read the rest

Photo Friday: Chloe and the field

This week we visited my in-laws, gathered in Eastern Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau, and a good time was had by all, especially Chloe:

Here she is, exhausted and happy. Please note that she is off-leash, for the second time ever.… Read the rest
