WE MADE IT SEATTLE. It’s been one heck of a week of inclement weather, snow, hail and now rain and slush. If you’re anything like us – you are pumped and READY to be go somewhere other than your couch or bedroom, and you know who else is? Your dog. They can’t for the life of them understand why they haven’t been able to go to their favorite dog park – even though you’ve explained multiple times that it’s at the top of a hill, rendering it inaccessible in the snow.
So bring it, weekend!
Brooks Trailhead Dogs & Doughnuts Dash (8 to 10 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 16) Lace up your best waterproof sneakers, find your pup some snowshoes and head out to Brooks Trailhead for its first-ever Dogs and Doughnuts Dash! The 5K starts at the Wallingford Trailhead, and finishes up with hot cocoa, coffee, and Top Pot Doughnuts. The event is free, and if you enter the raffle you could win a pair of Brooks running shoes.
Bow Wows and Books (3 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17) If you have a kiddo in your life who loves the library and dogs, they’ll love-love-love Bow Wows and Books events! Hang with certified therapy dogs in the Northeast Branch of the Seattle Public Library while you read, browse books, and play. Books and dogs, what a dream!
Brewery Date at Hellbent Brewing (Open Saturdays noon to midnight, Sundays noon to 10 p.m.) Greet the resident brewery Labrador and then make yourselves comfy at this taproom featuring a variety of ciders and beers. Feeling adventurous afterwards? Hit up Magnuson Off-Leash Dog Park just a few miles away. Peep our full list of Seattle breweries that welcome dogs inside for even more options.
Plus one fur a dogsitter night:
4th Annual Dogs to the Rescue Fundraiser (4:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16) If you’ve ever considered adopting a dog in the greater Seattle area, you know Ginger’s Pet Rescue. If your furry bestie didn’t come from them, one of your friends’ dogs did. To help ’em help even more dergs, silent & live auction, dinner, dessert, and a raffle.
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!
