Hi All!  In today's issue of TOURBUS, we're inviting cats, dogs and
other friendly critters to join us in finding the best websites for
and about pets.  Dave Taylor, frequent guest driver and proud dog-dad
to Jasmine & Karma (standard poodles who have traveled upwards of
10,000 vehicle miles with him) starts us off with a segment on travel
with pets, and then I'll follow up with some cool pet sites you won't
want to miss.
+-----------------------  DREAM JOBS TO GO!  -----------------------+
   Looking for some excitement in your work life? Thinking about a
   new career?  Thought you couldn't get into something you're
   passionate about? Think again!  We provide e-guides to some of
   the hottest, coolest, funnest, most unusual careers on the planet.
Riding on the Internet Tourbus, it's easy to forget that other forms
of transportation and travel aren't quite as animal friendly. On the
'Net, after all, no-one knows you're a dog, right?  But when you go to
check into a hotel at the end of a long day of driving, it's a
different story...
Fortunately, there's a great resource on the Web to take the sting out
of the "I'm sorry, we don't accept pets" experience. As a veteran of
thousands of miles of cross-country driving here in the United States,
my life's been improved a great deal by the efforts and information at 
But before you sic your killer daschunds on me, let me highlight that
the site lists hotels, apartments, ski resorts, campgrounds, and even
amusement parks that are pet friendly throughout the world. To be
fair, however, the majority of listings are in the U.S. and Canada.
The Petswelcome team also have a print book that features all the
hotel listings, if you'd rather not be in cyberspace, but then why
would you be on the Tourbus?? It's no surprise that the Petswelcome
site is as well-organized as it is; it's an affiliate of Frommers.
Also, while you're surfing this terrific site, don't forget to learn
more about their management team here:  
... and with that, Bob yanks me away from the wheel and forces me to
go back to teaching my Intro to the Internet course at Cabrillo
Community College in Aptos. Until next time...  -- Dave Taylor
