Dog Friendly

Last Seattle post I promise (until my next trip!). When we went on our furniture-browsing binge, it was at University Village, where, in addition to being very visually appealing despite being mostly “signature national retailers,” DOGS ARE WELCOME.

The big guy in the picture had to stay out on the sidewalk for some reason (he was a little bit stinky, maybe that’s why?), but he could have gone into Crate and Barrel with his person and helped pick out his new lounging spot on a sofa if he’d been invited inside.

I know not everyone wants dogs around all the time, but it’s nice to have a few dog friendly places. We used to love going to Bernies Bungalow Lounge, because dogs were welcome (they aren’t any more.  Sad).

Grover would sit with us, sip his water, and meet lots of ladies (let’s just say that Grover is an excellent wingdog). He got a lot of pets and kisses from strangers (the kisses are sometimes a bit weirdly intense, but he seems to like it) and actually used to veer towards the entrance if we happened to walk by, and when we passed the gate, give us a look like,

“Wait, what’s up guys?  You’re missing it!  Just through that arch is nirvana!  Lost of head rubs, tasty morsels, and things to smell.  What are we doing?!?!  You’re not gonna stop? Really? REALLY? Jeez, how did I end up with two fools like you?!”

Yep, Grover pretty much loved Bernies.

Where would you take your dog if you could pick anywhere?  I think I’d do Titlewave and the downtown Kaladi Bros.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!
