We've said it before and we'll say it again - when planning a trip or summer vacation, don't forget your Dachshund! Thanks so much to our pal 'Geneva' for sending in a link to the Today show, where they took a look at some of the finest pet-friendly hotels around the country. Above, a stay at the Ritz-Carlton New York in Central Park is luxurious for humans and animals alike. The Pampered Pooch package entails wrought-iron pet beds, 22-karat gold plated ID tags and home-baked dog treats. And when water is pouring down from the sky, both pet and owner can borrow Burberry raincoats. Aaahhh. Just what every Dachshund deserves. Read all about these fine pet-friendly hotels and watch a nice video at the Today show.
