COMPANY PRESS RELEASE
RELEASED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 1999 AT 6:30AM EST

A Valentine's Day Getaway for You, Your Sweetheart...
And Your Dog!


PLACERVILLE, California - (BUSINESS WIRE)--January 27, 1999 -- Dedicated to finding places that people and dogs can enjoy together, DogFriendly.com (http://www.dogfriendly.com) makes it easier for dog lovers planning that special Valentine's Day getaway. From bed & breakfast inns to resorts and upscale hotels, DogFriendly.com lists up-to-date special accommodations that allow ALL well-behaved dogs, regardless of size or breed.

Picture a romantic getaway at a cozy inn. The logs have been arranged in the fireplace, a beautiful bouquet of flowers brightens the room, and a chilled bottle of wine awaits you both. And then you hear a thump, thump, thump. Oh, that's Fido's tail hitting the table. Why on earth would someone bring their dog along on Valentine's Day? More and more people are traveling with their dogs because of several reasons. "In today's fast-paced world, people hardly get a chance to spend time with their best friend. They also hate the thought of leaving him behind in a kennel," said Tara Kain, founder of DogFriendly.com. "This means that more and more canines are traveling with their owners to unique getaway destinations."

The Columbia Gem, located in a historic gold rush town in the California Sierra Foothills, offers gracious country hospitality and comfort for you and your four-legged friend. They invite guests to stay in one of their six cozy log cabins and for a little extra, can provide the perfect getaway with champagne on ice, flowers, wine, cheese, crackers, chocolates, or bubblebath waiting in your room. Rene Cappadocia, owner of the Columbia Gem, says, "We believe that people who travel with their best friends are responsible pet owners and a pleasure to have as guests at The Gem."

The Garden and the Sea Inn Bed and Breakfast, in New Church, Virginia shares the same philosophy. Guests who stay here are also welcome to bring their pet along. You and your well-behaved dog can escape to the inn for an elegant, romantic and relaxed candlelight getaway. If you and your dog are vacationing in Florida for Valentine's Day, you might want to try the Florida House Inn, a registered historic bed and breakfast inn located in Amelia Island. This inn offers six rooms with fireplaces and several rooms have old fashioned claw-footed tubs and large jacuzzi tubs.

These are just a few examples of dog-friendly inns that have realized the growing demand of travelers who vacation with their best friends. Today, only a small percentage of all accommodations allow pets, and even fewer allow dogs larger than 20-25 pounds. However, DogFriendly.com focuses on helping dog owners, with ANY size dog, find that perfect vacation spot!
