Our foster dog Sprite is HAPPY about that!
Md. Senate approves of dogs in outdoor dining areas

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland canines have won an early victory on the last day of the state's legislative session. The Maryland Senate voted Monday morning for a bill to allow owners to bring their dogs to outdoor dining areas of restaurants, if restaurant owners say it's OK. The measure would take effect in July.
A restaurant owner would have to provide written notice to the local health department if the owner intends to allow dogs.
***Well, they can't get gay marriage right, but at least they realized that 67% of American households have a pet. Good to see this. I just hope that people bring well-behaved dogs!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
