Bruno’s Bath House elevates the dog-boarding experience by housing pups inside plush suites that will remind them of home. Two times a day, room service peeks in, checking to make sure beds are comfy and bowls are brimming with filtered water. Dog-loving caregivers oversee dogs so that each pet receives ample attention as they gambol across the indoor and outdoor play areas or nap on communal couches. This attentive treatment carries over into Bruno’s Spaw, where dogs receive baths with plush add-ons such as aromatherapy, massage, and Pawdicures. Edible and wearable doggie accessories are also available at Bruno’s Bistro and Boutique.

Skyview Aviation promotes its fondness for flight with a pod of professional pilots at the helm. Passengers in search of the picturesque will take off in a Cessna 172P on a sky-borne journey that first flits over Port Aransas beaches before soaring all the way down to North Padre Island. Along the way, passengers will also be presented with a nimbus's-eye view of the Lexington Aircraft Carrier, a World War II naval behemoth buoyed in Corpus Christi Bay. If flyers live close to any of the routed stops, pilots can steer off-course to float over personal domiciles, providing a peaceful yet petite view of homes and impromptu checkups on the babysitter.

Of all mankind's magnificent inventions, the touchscreen of a smartphone or tablet is perhaps the most important interface of the modern age. In just a swipe or tap of a finger, we can send messages across the globe, hurl agitated birds at pigs, make 6-second videos of breakdancing cats, and occasionally call parents. That's why when they break, it's more than a technological snafu. It's a moment of primal panic that sends us squinting through shards in maddened attempts to stay in touch.?
