Vienna’s Chocolate, Pastries and Mannerly Dogs
Mozart’s music inspires a visit to Vienna, but the city’s dogs are its real charmers.
The iron-on appliqué of Mozart’s head, hair powdered and pulled back into a ponytail, started peeling off the tote bag before we hit the airport on our return flight from Vienna.

Seattle’s Innovative Marymoor Park Pet Garden
One of the nation’s finest dog parks
Marymoor Park east of Seattle, Wash., is a Disneyland for dogs, a place where people and their pooches can romp and run over 40 acres of off-leash play space.
