ITS A DOGS LIFE

As Peaches the Yorkie reports, hotels are throwing pedigreed travelers a bone.

ast month I was politely asked to leave the French Laundry restaurant, in Napa Valley. Apparently Im a health hazard. Me! Ive seen humans there with more hair than I have, yet we canines get turned away at the door. Thankfully, hotels are rolling out the red carpetand dont mind one bit if we chew on it. With my pack at Hollywoods Sunset Tower Hotel (sunsettower hotel.com), where these pictures were taken, I ordered the sirloin cheeseburger with raw carrot fries from the room service Pet Menu. I have a private, dog-only palapa at Viceroy Riviera Maya (viceroyrivieramaya.com); when I check in at the Rome Cavalieri (romecavalieri.com), Im greeted with a cashmere sweater that has my name in rhinestones on the collar. In New York, a pawdicure at the new D Pet Hotels Chelsea (dpethotels.com) is an absolute must. Ali McLennan from Animal Planet TV is the best groomer in the city. If Im feeling frisky, I may get a few hot-pink highlights in my hair. Its the color of the season, you know. As told to Kathryn OShea-Evans
