I posted on Monday about an indoor pooch potty at the Portland, Maine airport. Have you seen these anywhere?









Have you ever seen a pet potty room in an airport or other public place?

Indoor Pet Potty

Airport Pet PottyThis was a new one on me! I flew into Portland, Maine this week for a training conference, and as I was walking through the airport, I found this room right next to the regular restrooms. A place for your dog to relieve him or herself. I know the picture’s not great, so this is a small area of fake grass with a plastic fire hydrant in the middle of it. The rest of the (relatively large, I thought) room is empty, except for a sink and a poop bag dispenser.

I can’t figure out if Portland gets that many dog visitors or if it’s just really, really cold and inhospitable for so many months during the winter that they added this indoor convenience.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Anyone happen to be traveling from Oregon to Pennsylvania?

This 7-year old Jack Russell Terrier, Gidget, is looking to hitch a ride from Portland to Philadelphia. Gidget was happily living with her family in Philly until two days after Easter, when she disappeared. Thank God she has a microchip because when she was found wondering the streets of Tualatin, a suburb of Portland, she was taken to a shelter who scanned the chip and found her family.

The only problem now is getting her back east. The family cannot afford to fly out to get her, and Washington County Animal Services does not have funding available for transportation.

As for Gidget, The Statesman Journal reports she appears to be in good shape. She lost about 5 pounds during her ordeal, but is still in very good health. No one knows how she ended up in Oregon, or how long she was on the streets before she was found.

If you can help with the transport, please contact Washington County Animal Services at 503-846-7041.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
