Quirky Pet-Friendly Pit Stops!

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Looking to take a road trip with your canine companion? We found this wonderful list full of quirky and fun pit stops that you can visit with your dog! A great idea for a Summer road trip!
1. Dog Bark Park Inn, Boise, Idaho A three-story freestanding hotel room in the shape of a Beagle. Enough said.
2. Dog Mayor Sunol, California In 1981, a dog named Bosco was elected mayor in a town just an hour outside San Francisco. Thirty years on, you can visit his animatronic replica at the local bar—lift his leg and he pees beer!
3. Charles M Schulz Museum, Santa Rosa, California For all things Snoopy. The documentary film is particularly charming; apparently the real life Snoopy loved nothing better than riding in cars.
4. Mutt Lynch Winery Sonoma, California Canine connoisseurs are welcome at this laid-back vineyard offering Fou Fou Le Blanc Sauvignon (featuring a chi-chi white Poodle on the label), Merlot Over & Play Dead (gruff Bulldog) and a great life motto: Bark Less, Wag More!
5. Drive-thru tree Leggett, California Dogs love to pee on trees, humans like to drive through them. My dog Bodie and I actually did the similar Tour-thru Tree three hours north.
6. Bobbie The Wonder Dog mural Silverton, Oregon This is so touching: in 1923 a family were on a road trip in Indiana when they lost their beloved Collie. Broken-hearted, they returned to Oregon without him. Six months later he turned up all scrawny and tattered of paw, having walked nearly 3,000 miles home. What a legend.
7. Wizard of Oz Museum Wamego, Kansas Cairn Terrier lovers will find an abundance of Toto memorabilia and cheeky treasures in the gift shop, not to mention Toto’s Tacoz next door.
8. Wild West portrait with your dog Breckenridge, Colorado What can I say? Bodie is such a natural-born outlaw. Breckenridge Old Time Photo, 326 South Main St. Tel: 970 453 4444
9. Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina If you’ve always felt that you and your dog were “to the manor born,” you have to visit the wondrous Biltmore Estate where you can spend the entire day strolling the elegantly landscaped grounds—8,000 acres complete with fountains, woodlands, and sunflower-trimmed bicycle paths—with a silver-topped walking stick and a monocle, if you fancy. At $59 per person it’s not cheap, but this does include entry to the grand 250-room French chateau and though your dog is not permitted inside, they do have kennels where he can kick back while you are marveling at the priceless artifacts. Afterwards you can dine at Cedric’s Tavern, named for George Vanderbilt’s beloved St Bernard, Heaven.
10. AKC Dog Show Many locations throughout the US Never mind the parade of purebreds, check out the astounding range of doggie beauty products. I got myself a great dogprint salon robe for when I wash Bodie!
