Pet Friendly Travel, Weekend Pet News

Nostalgia set in when I read a book review over at Dog Jaunt of  It’s A Dog’s World: The Savvy Guide To Four-Legged Living by Wendy Diamond.  MaryAlice Pomputius, Dog Jaunt’s owner/author,  mentioned a great pet-friendly hotel in Paris that came up in the book and put in a link to it. I had a happy trip down memory lane–I love these little getaways! 

Author Edie Jarolim at Will My Dog Hate Me has a post with several great reminders for people travelling with their pets, one of which is to make sure their microchip information is up to date with the chip company.  Check it out, and while you’re there, she’s got a new design and her book trailer video, starring her dog Frankie, is up(pun intended)–a good giggle for Sunday morning:)

If you are one of those unfortunates who forgot which company made your dog’s microchip, check your vet records.  If you only have the chip number, you can go to Check the Chip and the search program will tell you which company manufactured your chip. Then you can call to confirm that your address, phone numbers and description of the dog are correct. 

Brad Woodard, a Texas TV reporter is doing a series asking why Texas doesn’t regulate puppy mills. Something we’d all like to know for every State that isn’t regulating this problem.

And to wrap things up, something for our friends with cats!  Veterinarian Lorie Houston has an interesting article at the Pet Health Care Gazette  defining what is normal cat behavior, versus what is a cat behavior problem , and offers some feline behavior modification advice.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Thanks for linking to Lorie Houston, it was just what I was looking for! I'm the new owner of a beautiful tomcat, and I thought there was something wrong with him when he started spraying pee on the furniture! I still don't like it, but at least now I know it's normal...

I really appreciated the post Pet Friendly Travel, Weekend Pet News. We think of alot of things when preparing for traveling with our pets, but it's probably safe to say checking the microchip info is overlooked sometimes. Thanks too for the solution to forgetting the company who made the chip.

Useful article, especially for those who feel hampered in holidaying abroad because of being dog owners. I have found many pet friendly accommodation venues in the south of France too - namely Argeles, Collioure and Ceret in and around the Pyrennees/Languedoc regions

A great round up of stories. I also liked the post on Will My Dog Hate Me. And thanks for the link about cats.

Thanks for noticing my blog redesign and, especially, for mentioning the book trailer. It's been hidden in my blog and I'm pleased I could finally showcase Frankie's Excellent Adventure! And thanks for not only mentioning my lastest blog post but also for adding the very useful information about the Check the Chip link!
