How fun! Dog Jaunt won the Versatile Blogger award from Vanessa and her furry cohorts at Nico & The Bandit, a delightful blog of “creative canine content” I recently discovered. Thanks so much! I’d put N&B on my list (see below), but I have to follow the rules, which are as follows:

Thanks so much to everyone who entered Dog Jaunt’s and Will My Dog Hate Me‘s giveaway for a Sleepypod Air pet carrier, and thank you to Sleepypod for sponsoring it!
We asked entrants to send us pictures of their dog’s “favorite toy or blankie — the one that you’d tuck into your dog’s carrier as you set off on a trip, because you know he loves it best,” and we told them that pictures including both toy and dog would get extra love. … Read the rest
Well, to be honest, it was yesterday (April 11), which makes today the infinitely more poetic “year-and-a-day” anniversary of my blog. It started as a place to collect a lot of information I’d gathered in the course of taking several trips with our brand-new puppy.… Read the rest

Yesterday I reviewed Outward Hound’s “Roll Along Pet Carrier,” and today I have the pleasure of offering it to a Dog Jaunt reader! The prize carrier looks just like the one in the photo, minus the (surprisingly large) dog. Many thanks to The Kyjen Company for sponsoring this giveaway.… Read the rest

The building itself — completed in 1914 by Carrère & Hastings for industrialist William Starr Miller — is an important part of New York’s architectural history, and the collection (and visiting shows) are superb.… Read the rest
Last Thursday I reviewed Outward Hound’s “Backpack Pet Carrier,” and today I have the pleasure of offering it to a Dog Jaunt reader! Please note that the picture shows the backpack in black, but the prize backpack is a bold, fearless red.… Read the rest
Pet Airways just announced that it has added Phoenix, Omaha and Atlanta to its list of flight cities. Looking at their map of service, those additions make sense. I’m still looking forward, however, to the day that they add Seattle to the line-up!… Read the rest
