Top 10 Most Dog-Friendly U.S. Cities (Portland is #1)
Maggie in the #1 Dog Friendly City!

My adopted rescue pup, Maggie is happy to be living in the #1 Most Dog-Friendly U.S. City!

Take a look at this Infographic (courtesy of Bone-A-Fide Dog Ranch in Seattle) that shows the Top 10 Most Dog-Friendly U.S. Cities

Portland #1 Dog Friendly City

Dogs are welcome in quite a few shops and stores in Portland, as well as in many dining spots.  In some Portland neighborhoods, merchants leave a bowl of cool water for dogs (and even dog bones) for them to enjoy while on walks.  (According to this Infographic, dogs in Portland Oregon are even welcome on a local Brewery Tour!)    What does your City do to recognize dogs?

Maureen, what?  They didn't include Washington, DC?  Well, we could use a few more off-leash dog parks.

btw-the little princess in #26 isn't mine.  I just found her in the web.  My wife and I haven't had a dog since our son lived at home 20 years ago, but I keep thinking about getting another one.

Hi Pat ~ the dog parks are indeed one of the criteria, I guess.  We have quite a few here in Portland.  Willie must like going to them!

Hi Lloyd ~ Oh, I thought you had her all dressed up LOL.  You and your wife should consider getting a dog again ... they are such great housemates and pals!!

Hi Maureen,
It does not surprise me Portland is #1.  Hood River certainly takes after Portland too.  Halloween night, when we took the boys to downtown Hood River, Gretchen took her small dog.  Many of the shop owners had dog treats as well as candy for the kids.

Hi Mel ~ How great that the dogs in Hood River got treats too, on Halloween!  I love it when merchants recognize that dogs are important family members :-)

Maureen: Carmel-by-the-Sea in California is super dog friendly, all one square mile of it. Dogs romp off leash on the beach, parade with their owners on Ocean Avenue, and go inside to the Bar or for High Tea with their owners at Doris Day's Cypress Inn. I just arrived here today and can't wait to see what the dogs are wearing this season!!! I'll have to write a blog about that.

Hi Hella ~ What a coincidence ... I was born and raised in Carmel CA and I know exactly how dog-friendly it is!  (Maybe that's why my family was so dog crazy!)  Have a great stay in Carmel and say hello to the beach for me :-)

Maureen, this is quite a list, and nice to see Colorado Springs on this list anyway.    I love Portland, but think it may rain there too much.
