Excited to report that the Timberline Lodge, a magnificent mountain lodge on the slopes of Mt. Hood, near Portland, OR, has quietly opened its doors to pet dogs. http://www.timberlinelodge.com Too many of the gorgeous old national park lodges are not pet-friendly, so I plan to grab this rare opportunity (the rooms, I hear, are fairly basic, but the public spaces are astonishing — books and TV specials have all emphasized how much the team of craftspeople who created the lodge understood and appreciated the spell they were weaving).

Here's another of Sunset Magazine's "glamping" recommendations which turns out to be pet-friendly: Ocean Village offers sweet little cabins on the Pacific Ocean side of British Columbia's Vancouver Island, and all are pet-friendly except the Upper Studio Suites. http://oceanvillageresort.com It's takes some effort to get there, not gonna lie, but Tofino is a charming little town, and the beach is beautiful year-round (the Wickaninnish Inn, just up the road and also pet-friendly — but in a whole different price bracket — invites folks to cozy up during "Winter Storm Season" and watch the waves).

Just returned from a road trip around the Palouse, and had a good chance to try out the AirPupSaver, Chloe's new car safety solution. Here's my review: http://www.dogjaunt.com/2016/08/the-airpupsaver-chloes-newest-car-safety-solution/

Sunset Magazine posted a list of appealing "glamping" options, and a few of them are dog-friendly. The RimRock Inn, in eastern Oregon welcomes pet dogs to its "4 fully outfitted, rustically elegant tipis." http://www.rimrockinnor.com They're located on the Joseph Creek Canyon, and that part of the country — holy cats, I can't find words for the beauty. Here's the pet policy page: http://www.rimrockinnor.com/policies-new

This seemed too good to be true, so I sent an e-mail — but sure enough, London's Egerton House Hotel (in Knightsbridge) welcomes pet dogs to afternoon tea. General Manager Michelle says "It is my pleasure to confirm that we are indeed pet friendly and would love the opportunity of welcoming you and your lovely dog to The Egerton House Hotel for Afternoon Tea. Milly my super little Jack Russell Terrier comes to work each day and will be on hand and awaiting with a special doggy welcome too." The hotel (http://egertonhousehotel.com) looks divine, and the tea gets excellent reviews. Here's Milly!

A nice heads-up from the Times of Israel about dog-friendly Tel Aviv — you might miss this week's events, but long term, it's good to know about dog-friendly parks and beaches, and I had no idea that the city's cafés and restaurants often welcome pet dogs. Huzzah! http://www.timesofisrael.com/tel-aviv-is-going-to-the-dogs/ (Here's another post with some leads on those dog-friendly beaches: https://www.secrettelaviv.com/everything-pets-in-tel-aviv/dog-beaches-and-parks-in-tel-aviv/)

I agree, no-dogs-allowed signs are a bummer. But I am smiling, imagining the "Fido." (This is from Cupcake Royale, in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood -- mighty close to D'Ambrosio, our best gelateria, which IS dog-friendly, so let's celebrate that.)
