Doggie Paradise at the Queen Mary

Woofers'll have their day in the Long Beach sunshine, with a host of wag-worthy events in tow.

What to Know

Peruse any wall of historic photographs, the kind of snapshots that celebrate ocean travel around the middle of the 20th century, and you're bound to see stylishly attired travelers holding a host of hounds, from Corgis to Pugs to Yorkies.

For, back in the day, it was not uncommon for those crossing the Atlantic to make the trip with their favorite tail-wagger at their side.

Nowadays, of course, it is rather rarer to find a Fido that's been on a boat, but celebrating boat life, and our best buddies, is still possible.

Look to the Queen Mary, which will hold its first-ever Doggie Paradise day on Saturday, Sept. 14.

True, the party will be next to the historic ocean-liner, and not on the ship itself, but consider how glorious a backdrop that is, should you want to snap a few shots of your furry one with the ship's famous funnels in the background.

"Dogs can dive into doggie splash pools, make souvenirs for their owners at our arts and crafts stations, roll around in a ball pit, or get pampered with a freshly washed coat and manicured nails at the on-site mobile grooming stations," are just a few of the canine-cool activities.
