Hot off the presses, we’ve just gone live with the latest installment of the Wag-Worthy Weekend for PetSetters on Pet360.com.
New York never looses its ability to stay familiar and yet offer something new around every corner. Read the full Wag-Worthy article below:
Thirsty (For Affection)?
In DC we found just the thing to fit the bill combining thirst quenching and dogged affection; The Canine Cruise along the Potomac River! You are invited to come on-board with or without a four-legged companion for a ‘howling good time touring Alexandria’s seaport.” Two, 40 minute cruises requiring pets to be leashed at all times on a flat leash no longer than 6 feet (no retractable leashed allowed) departs from the Alexandria, VA dock on Thursday evenings at 7:00 and 8:00 pm. Round trip fare is very affordable at just $15.00 for adults, $9.00 for children and FREE for Fido. Advance ticket purchases are strongly recommended; these are extremely popular tours for visitors and residents alike.
Often I’ll look over to find Beau staring up at the clouds or a plane or a bird and I imagine that he is thinking, ‘Boy that would be fun… I wish I could fly…’
Actually, you may be surprised to find out that Beau is a seasoned flier. Having lived on Nantucket Island for the majority of his life. He became quite accustomed to the routine at the Nantucket Airport and the flights to and from the island, but he’d never been on a helicopter. So given the opportunity to take a ride in a helicopter we jumped at it. Beau loved every second! He was completely engaged in looking out the window to see the sailboats and motor yachts below us, and he was awfully cute in his headphones!
What an amazing crew they have BHS! This luxury pet-friendly executive helicopter service flies executives and pet-toting people eager to skip airport hassles to their meetings or vacations on the coast. They only fly within a 325 mile radius of their home base in Baltimore. Beau thoroughly LOVED his first helicopter ride! It also happened to be my first helicopter ride and I can tell you, I thought it would be bumpy and rough but it was delightful and smooth. Be sure to call ahead for your reservation (or email) and get special tips for your pets’ enjoyment.
One Pooped Pup?

As I write this entry it is January 20, 2013; Inauguration Day … maybe, if you haven’t taken a pet-friendly trip yet this would be the perfect destination to ‘inaugurate’ your pet to the wonderful world of travel. Let us know how it goes or if you have any questions.
This episode of ‘The Pet Show with Dr. Katy’ has Beau and I showing Dr. Katy Nelson, DC Vet and The Pet Show hostess extraordinaire, all around the LuxuryPAW member property, the Westin Tysons Corner. Hmmmmmm, I think Dr. Katy may have taken those sneakers home, she was really liking that whole concept… ! I know Beau wanted to take the ‘Heavenly Bed’ home, he was pretty difficult to dissuade.
Watch the entire show, it’s fun and imformative or scroll the time bar on the bottom of the video screen to the 11:31 mark where the LuxuryPAW segment begins. Make it full screen too… Beau is too cute to watch in that little screen !
We thought Washington, DC was so pet-friendly that we featured it in one of our recent Wag-Worthy Weekend articles for Pet360.com. Click on the Wag-Worthy link above to read the full article, I hope it inspires you to pack up the pup and head to Washington!

The Mansion at Judges Hill in Austin, TX is one of our treasured LuxuryPAW Member Properties. We loved Austin; a super-pet-friendly city and The Mansion at Judges Hill was the cherry on top of a wonderful stay…or as Beau would say if he could, ‘The Salmon sticks from the Fish & Bone!’

“The Montauk lighthouse is always a beautiful sight, no matter how many times we’ve visited before.”
I saw this picture and comment on the Mill House Inns FB page and I can just imagine strolling along the shore or the bluff, in a big cozy Irish fisherman’s sweater(of course, if it came with a yummy Irish Fisherman, that would be fine too), the sun warming my face, that delicious, briny ocean smell on the breeze, and Beau in his absolute glory bounding about and gleaming; his red fur shining in the sun...sign us up!
