Pet-friendly shopping and cake!

April 23rd, 2018

 

 

To make the most of, and fully enjoy, the sunny weather we’ve had these last few days, Nicci, Sam, me & our dogs opted for a lovely walk to the Trentham Gardens.

Trentham Gardens is a beautiful place to walk your dogs and enjoy shopping and good food at the same time. Especially when the weather is warm, it makes such a difference for dog owners if they want to walk their dogs and do some shopping as well.

As a side note, please remember that when the weather is heating up it is more important than ever not to leave a dog in a car. I don’t think people realise that when the temperature outside is around 20 degree Celsius, inside, the cars’ temperature is well over 40! And this happens in minutes! As dogs don’t sweat, and they regulate their temperature by panting, in a small closed space like a car they will run out of fresh air really quickly …

To take advantage of the glorious weather, after our walk we decided to pop into Rawr  for our Style to Rescue committee meeting and enjoy some lunch at the same time. Dog friendly Rawr is definitely one of my favourite places to eat. Freshly made vegetarian/vegan food, juices, smoothies, delicious raw cakes, and the coffee … hmmm … divine!

Later on in the afternoon we took a short drive to Newcastle-under-Lyme to visit The Cakery and

to support the Great Guide Dogs Tea Party. In the Hound we met Elsa the Lhasa and her lovely owner Kelly from Paws across Britain. Paws across Britain is a wonderful blog where Kelly features dog friendly places such as shops, restaurants, bars, and other dog friendly places.

Elsa is the ambassador of the ORIJEN dog food that are one of the kind sponsors of our Style to Rescue dog grooming competition for rescue dogs (https://www.style2rescue.co.uk/). And we look forward to seeing her again at the show!

To finish the day off I bought 7 doggie ice creams, one for each of my dogs. Tinker and Adele enjoyed theirs in the car on our way home and the rest had theirs after our evening walk. Everybody really enjoyed the treat, only Jasmine struggled a bit … too much goodness in one small pot 😊
