Here is what he wrote on Following Atticus’s Facebook page about the review on A Traveler’s Library, the co-host of the club: It’s windy and cold outside and I’m […]

Pet Travel Thursday: Passports and Pooches with Purpose

Tweet Every now and then I hear people on TV disparaging bloggers as losers who sit in their parents’ basements, typing away in their pajamas.

Travel Thursday: Tailing John Steinbeck

Wordless Wednesday: 6/15/2011

Tweet These Parisian pups Spanish Pulis *came to my attention via a rather circuitous route. My friend Vera Marie Badertscher, blogger at A Traveler’s Library and author of the wonderful new Quincy Tahoma: The Life and Legacy of a Navajo Artist (I’m sending you to the blog, where you’ll find two surprising dog-related reviews), sent […]

36 Hours in Tucson: Canine Edition, Part 1

Tweet Sometimes I’m way ahead of the curve. For example, I’ve been blogging about doggie dental care since the beginning of this month, well in advance of the designated Pet Dental Month, February. (Of course, I’m not big on designated months; see November Is Pet Diabetes Month: Oh the Irony). Sometimes I’m far behind it. […]
