Stay Calm and Adopt a Dog

Stay Calm and Adopt a Dog

Guest Post by Dog Gone Seattle adopter Julie D. Barnes I acquired my first ever dog a few months ago, an eight week old Terrier mix.  The timing had never been right before: I either worked too many hours or rented non-pet-friendly apartments.  My six year old son was desperate for a puppy, and now that we finally had a home with a private securely fenced yard, I struggled for a reason to say no.   Admittedly, I had always wanted an Old English Sheepdog, but did not think it would be fair to keep one in a city dwelling when they…read more >
Thanks for Sharing: Bill’s on Greenwood Dog-Friendly

Thanks for Sharing: Bill’s on Greenwood Dog-Friendly

Thank you to Toni who emailed this tip: Bill's on Greenwood allows dogs as long as they are "well-behaved and adorable"! This is the new location of the dog-friendly Bill's Off Broadway on Capitol Hill that closed in 2014 for renovations, but now appears to be permanently closed. If Bill's On Greenwood is anything like Bill's Off Broadway, they make delicious pizza and also have a full bar. My favorite combination is Chicken, Pineapple, Jalapeno, and Artichoke Heart. SO GOOD. 3702read more >

Thanks for Sharing: Dog-Friendly Patios at Chaco Canyon

Thank you to Kendra for sharing this great tip on a dog-friendly organic cafe, Choco Canyon: Like many places in Portland Chaco Canyon allow dogs  with the "3 bark rule." They don't have any signage because they don't want the Health Department to see. Healthy food and low key atmosphere. That said, I checked with Chaco Canyon on Facebook and their official policy is no pets inside. They have a large patio that accommodates pets outside and allow service dogs inside. They stated: 1589read more >

Since You Asked – Dog Friendly Bars in Renton

Since You Asked – Dog Friendly Bars in Renton

My friend Chris was dog sitting in Renton this past weekend, and asked if I knew of any dog-friendly bars in Renton. I didn't, but I always enjoy helping fellow dog lovers find new places they can dine with their pups, so I decided to do a little research... I was able to confirm that World of Beer in Renton has a dog-friendly patio. Also, Katie J's Bar and Grill is dog-friendly inside at the bartender's discretion. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, so Chris and his pretty pitbull Juice opted to snag a spot on the dog-friendly patio at…read more >
