Max’s World- Annapolis

Readers,

I have a new love.  He weighs 7.7 pounds and is a fluffball.  His name is Max.

He is a rescue Bichon, and just the sweetest little pup ever.  Getting him I realized the creators of The Knot, The Nest and The Bump forgot a step- The Bark.  Many of my friends have dogged-up already, which is great for getting advice and now I thought I would share some of mine with you.

This edition is Annapolis:

Annapolis is about as close to dog heaven as there can be here on earth.  All the shops downtown have water bowls and treats, the stores let you bring your little ones in with you and the restaurants have outdoor seating.  And the best part is while all this is going on there is a frenzy of meet and greet with other dogs of all breeds and sizes.

The Loews in Annapolis is not only a very pet-friendly hotel, but they are having “Canines & Cocktails for a cause” happy hours from 5:30 – 7:30 on April 16, May 21, June 18, July 23, August 20 and September 24.  Each happy hour goes to benefit a different dog organization such as: SPCA of Anne Arundel, National Canine Cancer foundation and Partnership for Animal Welfare.

Next up is Paws– the absolute best dog boutique store I have been to so far in my dog owning time.  They have dog art, dog treats- even frozen dog treats, the best selection of leashes I have ever seen, dog apparel (but not silly apparel), dog night-lights, they have bells for potty training your dog and so much more.  Plus all the employees are knowledgeable about the products, and have dogs, and most of the products are locally made too! (Supporting locally owned independent business is a big thing for me, especially when they give back in good ways.)

Some of the goods at Paws:

This lady bug collar could be in my Easter Basket:

Or a Fleur de Lis bowl for my little Spanish/French dog:

Or if you want a fancier look around your house, get this marbelized dog bowl:

And Max says this Bichon hat is perfect, it has a pocket for treats!

So while in Annapolis, just stroll around Main St, State Circle and Maryland Avenue and peruse the stores with your pup.  And catch a bite somewhere outside.  Or grab a sandwich at the Big Cheese and head to the city dock to meet up with lots of other dogs.  Or if you can’t make it to Annapolis, Paws has a fantastic online website for ordering.

    Baltimore is a pretty great city for dogs too–lots of great dog-friendly parks from Robert E Lee Park in Mt. Washington to Druid Hill Lake Park by the Zoo and the Wyman Park dell next to the BMA in Charles Village, there are many fun spots that both dogs and their owners can enjoy together. The Maryland SPCA is located in Baltimore and it just so happens that their March for the Animals is coming up on April 18th for anyone who is interested! I’ve heard that it’s always a good time.
