There's a bar about a mile away from where I live that allows dogs. From what I understand, there is always just a pack of dogs running around in there while people grab drinks. Doesn't sound too hygienic, but it does sound really fun.
I've been thinking about taking my dog there, but I think walking a mile there and a mile back might kill her. A mile isn't too many steps for me, but she is about the size of my foot, so it might be too many for her. I suppose I could carry her, but she sheds a lot and I don't want to walk into a bar more fur than man.
I just bring this up because I'm really jealous of these people who are able to go on long hikes with their dogs. Hopefully my next dog will be bigger than my foot. Arm-length is the goal.
