It was a late-summer getaway to Monterey. My wife and I decided to take Jake, our little Corgi mix, with us.

We booked a room at the Portola Hotel, close to Fisherman’s Wharf, and Jake was treated like royalty. The hotel offered him special doggie treats. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel staff was thrilled to have our little friend as a guest.

ALCATRAZ ISLAND, Calif. (AP) — Biologists have flocked to Alcatraz Island to get a glimpse of a seabird that is believed to have never previously visited the waters of the Pacific.

The sleek white bird — known as a northern gannet — is native to the Atlantic Ocean.

National Park Service biologist Tori Seher took birders to the island to try to spot the bird on Tuesday, a day after she says it was seen taking nesting material from another bird species and searching for a mate.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1talngB) that scientists believe the bird flew across the Arctic Sea in 2012 when ice coverage was low. The birds have wingspans that can reach 71 inches and dive into the sea at speeds of 60 mph to catch fish.
