Top 200 Places

DogFriendly.com, with tens of thousands of places listed to take your dog to, will be releasing on it’s Dog News blog, Facebook page and on Twitter a list of 200 Top Places that you can take your dog in the U.S. and Canada. This list, while intended to highlight top places that are especially pet-friendly, is not designed to be the absolutely top 200 places that we could find, but a sampling of the top places so that all regions, types of attractions, hotels, B&Bs, vacation rentals, parks, beaches, shopping and more can be considered. No doubt each of you will find many other places not on this list or our full list of dog-friendly places at http://www.dogfriendly.com. Please let us know about them by commenting on the blog or emailing us at email@dogfriendly.com. You can also let us and our readers know if you agree or disagree with the selections, or your experiences there. Please keep in mind that places often change their policies regarding dogs and thus may have different policies at any time in the future.

Orvis Teams with Betty White to Fight Canine Cancer

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Betty White loves dogs as much as she loves a good laugh – and her new video, www.Orvis.com/BettyWhite is a funny, but ultimately important video to help raise money annually for the Morris Animal Foundation’s cancer research campaign. The Emmy Award-winning comedian truly brings on the laughs as she attempts to get her co-star, Buck the pooch, on the cover of the Orvis catalog.

The Orvis Company is committed to improving the health of dogs, and through the Orvis Cover Dog Photo Contest and direct donations, Orvis and its customers have raised over $500,000 so far in support of the Morris Animal Foundation in their fight against this terrible disease.

The Cover Dog Photo contest is now open, and photographs can be submitted through March 2012.

For more information go to www.orvis.com/bettywhite.

To join in the fight against canine cancer, send your check to Morris Animal Foundation, c/o The Orvis Company, 178 Conservation Way, Sunderland, VT 05250.
