Today we went to Alivia's Bistro for an event called "Pets on the Patio". For a donation, dogs could have brunch with their people on the patio of the the restaurant. The money raised benefits Independent Animal Rescue (IAR). Alivia's also donated 10% of the price of all the food people ordered to IAR.
We thought that this was a great idea and since it was a nice fall day, we drove the dog crate on wheels to Durham to participate. I know dogs in Europe can go to restaurants, but in the US they are ridiculously fussy and won't let us inside. Maybe they are afraid one of our hairs will get in the food. Anyway, I was glad to go when I heard that the money will help foster dogs and that I would get to have brunch on the patio.
There were all kinds of dogs at the event. Here are a few photos of dogs enjoying going out to brunch with their people.
Everyone was very well behaved.
Each table had a dog bowl on the ground near it so we could have a drink. Every dog on the patio got a nice toy or treat of their choice. Here I am sampling the chewy I picked out.
The people at the next table ordered a big bowl of something called shrimp. I have never had a shrimp but it smelled extremely delicious. Barbara wouldn't order any for me but she did get me an English muffin and sausage. I tried very hard to sit nicely and not disgrace her by jumping up on the table to get my brunch.
The muffin and sausage were quite tasty but I am going to be dreaming about those shrimp. I hope that the event raised lots of money for IAR - they do good work.
This is my 100th blog post! I really enjoy posting about my adventures and I am so glad to have made many new dog friends all over the world. Blog On!!!
