My trip in April to Venice is getting closer. I will missing my dogs at home so I hope I see Maggie. I would rather see her than Angelina Jolie, but if she is with Jonny Depp that will be OK. Pam

Hello

We are also going to Venice in May and hope to see Maggie there!

Can you please tell me how welcomed dogs are in Venice? Can they go into museums and restaurants? Do you know of any nice dog friendly hotels?

Thanks and great blog!

It isn't uncommon for restaurants and shops to allow dogs, but supermarkets are off-limits (at least in theory--unleashed dogs sometimes wander in to find their owners). Museums and churches aren't likely to welcome dogs, either.

As for hotels, I'd recommend looking for hotels by location, price, and the other things that interest you and checking the pet policies of the hotels that make your short list. (Hotel listings often say "Pets welcome," "Small dogs," "No pets," or something similar, and if nothing is said, you can either inquire or mention that you have a dog when you make your reservation. What with the recent economic crisis and the impact that the recent volcano eruption in Iceland has had on travel, I'd guess that even the less dog-friendly hotels may be willing to bend a few rules until their profits improve!)

I, too, hope to see Maggie when I visit Venice. I will be leaving my two, Shadow and Tyrant, at home in Canada, and my brother will be leaving his two whippets in Denmark when we meet for a family vacation in September. No walks at 6am is heaven for the first couple of days, but after that I go into doggy-withdrawl!

Just got back from Venice. Loved all the dogs. Have a great picture of a couple of german shepards going for a ride Venice style on a boat.

Hi!
I'm a big dog-lover and adore Venice. Happened to come across this blog. Me and my husband are laughing so hard right now. Loved her quest in trying to find Johnny Depp. What a hoot!!!!! Please keep us posted on Mggie's adventure.Looking forward to it.

Ciao Maggie, credo che siamo vicine di casa. Abito vicino a Calle della Regina. Se ci troviamo in qualche calle, ti offro uno "storto" di panna montata.
Una carezza affettuosa

My greatest passions in life are dogs and Italy so I can't resist Maggie! And I have a rescue dog of my own. Maggie is just awesome. I have passed this blog on to my http://www.dreamofitaly.com readers.

Such an adorable dog! Maggie is very lucky to have you as her master. I envy her... I am looking forward to see you in Venice Maggie! Be a good girl!

Aww I'm so sorry. My peanrt's dog is getting up there in age too. He is blind and deaf and has a heart murmur. He wasn't suppose to live past a year and he is about 15 now. I know the end is probably somewhat near but I get so sad thinking about it. I'm going to be a bit of a wreck when he dies. Lots of hugs.

Hi Maggie,
We live in Maine,USA and we have a lovely Beardie by the name of Mia. Last time we were in Venice we saw a beardie and how we missed our two! We hope you will be out and about and hopefully we can see you while we are in Venice.
