San Francisco: Dog-Friendly By The Bay

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

San Francisco has a population of 805,000 in only 47 square miles. This makes it the second most densely populated city in the U.S. after New York. This is good for people visiting with dogs as it makes the city very walkable. To walk from anywhere to anywhere else in San Francisco you would not have to walk more than 7 miles. Most of the visitor areas are within three miles of each other, however. San Francisco is very scenic and has many hills some of which are quite steep with sidewalks made as stairs.

Santa Fe New Mexico – Pets Welcome in the Mountains

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Santa Fe has a special charm to it as a Mexican town located here in the US. It is the oldest state capital in North America. The original colony was established by the Spanish conquistador Don Pedro de Peralta in 1610. The heart of the city is the Central Plaza, around which the town revolves. Santa Fe is a quaint town with a poplulation of 68,000 that is not sure if it is a small town or a larger city. Sixty miles by highway from Albuquerque, it sits in the mountains at an elevation of 7000 feet so it is not as hot as most people think of when they think of summer in New Mexico. Dogs like the cooler temperatures as well. Santa Fe is a dog-friendly town, with unique B&B lodgings, small hotels and specialty lodging and shops.

They have a menu of salads and deli sandwiches as well. Your dog can accompany you to the outside areas of each of the locations. But Portland is not a one “Lab” town. Also try out the Tin Shed Garden Cafe which comes complete with a dog menu alongside its natural, organic and healthy people foods.
