Want to get out of town for the weekend but can't bear to leave Fido at the kennel? Take him to Carmel-by-the-Sea for the doggy-biscuit turndown service at Doris Day's Cypress Inn (800-443-7443) or the champagne-bucket water bowl presented on a chic napkin-covered plate at PortaBella (831-624-4395). Shops such as Diggidy Dog (831-625-1585) and Mackie's Parlour (831-626-0600) sell feather beds, canine cologne, and squeak toys.
