Flamingo’s, Snoopy & Sand January 25, 2011

We ventured out over the weekend and stayed overnight at

The Flamingo Conference Resort & Spa

in Santa Rosa.

Accommodating with Good Customer Service

& Very Pet Friendly!

 

All the pet friendly rooms have wood flooring with a lovely area to potty, and ample room to walk and sniff. Besides the stiff, non-refundable $50 pet fee, I’d highly recommend this spot for a quiet stop over when visiting the area with your pets! An assortment of the Charles Shulz Peanut characters can be seen throughout the Flamingo grounds.

Snoopy, of course, is our Favorite.

On the way out, we hit pet friendly, leash only

 

 

 

Doran Beach in Bodega Bay.

 

We all loved the 2-miles of white, sandy beach on a beautiful day!

 

 

Aggressive Coyote Prompts Dog Ban On Some Palo Alto Open Space Trails September 16, 2010

For All You Hikers Out There:

In response to a series of encounters between an aggressive coyote and dogs, Palo Alto is temporarily prohibiting dogs from visiting some trails on the western side of Pearson-Arastradero Preserve.

“The coyote would approach people with dogs, bark and howl,” said Lester Hodgins, open space division supervising ranger. In one case, a coyote “nipped at” a dog, he said, adding that there have been no full-blown attacks.

The harassed dogs have ranged in size from a small collie to a 90-pound Labrador, Hodgins said.

“In some cases, the owners just yelled,” he said. “In one case, they had to throw a rock.”

There haven’t been any reports of coyotes approaching hikers without dogs.

Following the latest encounter on Sept. 1, the city banned dogs from the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail at the preserve’s west entrance on Arastradero Road to the Meadowlark Trail, as well as from the Woodland Star, Ohlone and Bay Laurel trails. The preserve, city-owned open space, is off Arastradero Road just north of Page Mill.

Hotel Chains Open Their Doors to Dogs

By Phyllis DeGioia

Imagine that the following happens during your next vacation: You enter the lobby of a luxury hotel with your accompanying children, colleagues or friends, and your eyes wide open. Your companions gasp while you stare, jaw agape, at the finery and expensive furnishings. You’re so taken aback by the splendor that you almost drop your dog’s leash.

This scenario might not just be a daydream — especially the part about your dog. That’s because many hotels now cater to dog owners like you. Now you can stay at hotels ranging from luxury chains, where you can expect royal rover treatment, to reasonably priced hotels, which place more emphasis on functionality rather than flash. Read More…
