Yappy weekend, pups! Perfect your pawrenting skills, and then pat yourself and your dog on the back (and head) with a puppuccino and a night out at the ballpark. Good boys and girls.
Coffee Date at BARK! espresso (Open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays) With Cafe Vita Coffee and treats from nearby Macrina Bakery, this cozy Pinehurst cafe’ll make you feel right at home. Sniff out the dog art gallery, and wag over to Great Dog if Fido could use a lil grooming. Need a post-coffee jaunt? Magnuson Dog Park is just minutes away. (For even more options, check out our guide to dog-friendly Seattle coffee shops.)
Pet CPR & First Aid at the Seattle Humane Society (9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, May 25) Because let’s be honest, the chance something gets stuck in pupper’s throat is probably even higher than something going down your toddler’s.
BSB: Bark in the Park (6 p.m., Saturday, May 25) Why should the Mariners have all the Bark in the Park fun? Come down to the U.W. Husky version of the fantastic, pet-friendly tradition of bringing your dogs to ballgames. $15 will get you and your pet in, AND a UW dog bowl. Register online beforehand to submit your pup’s rabies vaccines and complete a waiver. Keep those doggies on a leash though, many of them probably like balls more than the fans do!
Plus another event worth barking about:
Veterinary Care for Pets of Homeless and Low Income Families (12 to 4 p.m., Saturday, May 25) Income and housing shouldn’t matter when it comes to taking care of your pets. If paying the vet bills for your animals is difficult for you or someone you know, or you’re not pup to date on your dog’s vaccines) come to the Union Gospel Mission between noon and 4 p.m. where The Doney Coe Pet Clinic will be set up, including a Pet Food Bank.
What else is on your agendog this weekend? Doo tell. (And don’t forget to submit all of your pup-centric events to our calendar.) Happy adventuring, Sidewalk Doggers!
