Thanks To Our Generous Neighborhood Friends

How can you tell I live in a dog-friendly neighborhood?  Well, all the dogs in the area would probably be a dead giveaway I guess.  But even when there are no dogs out there are plenty of signs that neighborhood businesses, institutions and residents are happy to have dogs around.  All you have to do is look down.

Eko appreciates a nice water break in the middle of a walk or run

When the weather is nice my neighborhood is full of puppy-pit stops.  They are great because on longer walks I don’t have to worry about Eko needing water.  At the deluxe pit stops Eko can even snag a treat.

I thought this was a photo of Eko sniffing the treats, but look at the tongue on that little thief!

At the next pit stop I made sure the cap was on the treats before I took a photo.  That didn’t seem to deter Eko though…

Thumbs are overrated I guess!

Filling a bowl with water or leaving out a few treats is a small act of kindness but it is one which I really appreciate.  I have not had the chance to meet the owners of most of the (many) pit stops Eko and I have visited along the way but I hope they know we are grateful for their generosity.  I’m looking forward to paying it forward one day.
