Sunlight! Fresh Air! Blue Skies! Finally, we can get outside and play. You know who also wants to get outside with you?  Of course, it's your furry friend!  

I have a wonderful list of places where you and your pooch can spend some quality time. The options are varied and include exploring a fabulous on-leash park that offers a unique walk through a beautiful sculpture garden or relaxing at an outdoor beer garden with a dog friendly patio. 

Don’t have a dog of your own? There are so many waiting to be adopted.  Here’s a great resource for finding your perfect match!
