This week, one of the best doggie blogs in Cleveland posted the top-50 things to do with a dog in the city in 2016. From happy hours to sporting events, all the good stuff is here. I suggest you check it out!
It was a bit delayed, but winter has returned to Cleveland. Woody was not too pleased as I put his jacket on him for the first time this year and took him outside in the snow. I'm certain when I get home I will be greeted by a mess. As always, when the weather gets like this it's good to remember these tips for keeping your dog from feeling the winter blues:

After some extremely cold Polar Vortex winters, we're back in an El Nino effect here in Cleveland. Today it was 70 degrees. While I can't help but worry about our planet with these unseasonably extremes, I selfishly enjoy being able to enjoy the outdoors a little longer.

If you are a Cleveland dog owner and haven't heard about Dogs in the Cle, you have to check them out. Whereas I focus on more random doggie musings, Dogs in the Cle focuses on all of the dog-friendly happenings in the area. Plus, they highlight adoptable dogs weekly.
Recently, I posted about Woody's once-a-year ice cream outing. The people over at BarkPost must have read my mind about would be nice to let him have a sweet indulgence more than once a year. I recently came across this post with dog-friendly treats like peanut butter swirl and pumpkin delight. Once I make one of these, I will report back on how Woody liked it!
