Our hearts and prayers go out to every one of our Northern and Southern California neighbors, two-legged and four, impacted by the deadly fires that have raged in Butte, Los Angeles, Ventura and other California counties. We are also devastated by the loss of life and property.

At the same time, we are thankful for the support of the many emergency responders, support personnel, and volunteers who are saving lives, property, and pets. Here are links to the latest information on the fires and some ways you can make a difference.

When Northern Californians mention “The Lake,” you know they’re talking Tahoe. September is “tweener” season at Big Blue, a time when locals breathe deep, tourism drops off and visitors in the know snag mega-deals on lodging. It’s also a great time to swim and hike with your dog—not just at Lake Tahoe itself, but at nearby splash spots, as well. Where to dip toes and paws? Our Tahoe-area “A” List follows. more »

River Dogs Rule At Little River Inn

Would you even dream of going on a California vacation without your dog? She deserves a vacation, too, and there’s no better place to chill out (and wear yourself out with hikes and beach runs) than on the California coast.

Little River Inn, in the coastal Mendocino County town of the same name, offers a River Dog package, good June through October, that includes two nights in a pet-friendly, ocean-view room with fireplace; a three-hour outrigger canoe excursion on the Big River for you and your pet; a $100 dinner voucher good for room service or service in the dog-friendly parlor; and a goodie bag packed with treats and tip sheets on where to hike, bit and boat with your four-legged friend. more »

If you’re coming from Southern California, the Highway 41 corridor from Fresno up to Yosemite’s (South) Entrance, past Fish Camp, is probably the way you’ll go. The road begins its serious climb in Oakhurst, where Queen’s Inn by the River boasts an adjacent winery and  beer garden serving up almost 100 wines and craft beers on Wednesday through Sunday afternoons. Also in Oakhurst are Vulture’s View Inn, a B&B popular with DogTrekkers, and the dreamy (and dog-friendly) Chateau Du Sureau, a five-star, castle-like estate hotel. more »

In San Francisco, GGNRA lands wrap the shoreline almost all the way from Fort Mason in the north to Fort Funston in the south, with a few breaks along the way. Dogs and their people can enjoy miles-long leashed walks with ocean views and, at a few places, unclip their canine companions to chase the surf and run free. more »

Highway 89 along Tahoe’s West Shore is a treat for the senses on many levels. It takes about an hour in non-traffic conditions to drive straight through, but why would you want to do that? Your first worthwhile diversion, especially if you’re a Tahoe first-timer, is Tallac Historic Site, a collection of late 19th-century estate homes and out-buildings. more »
