Duchess Poppy spent her second birthday in Provincetown. This is her report ...
If you'd like to go to a very dog friendly place, I recommend Provincetown. Not only were the pups on the street happy to share a sniff, but you can even go to a restaurant patio with your people. And, lots of shops are happy to have a well-behaved dog (like moi) assist their family with a bit of shopping.
The downside of all this dining and shopping and sniffing is that vacationing can make even a young pup like me very tired. Make sure you catch a nap when you can. As you can see, I packed my Mambe blanket so I could stretch out on the sofa just like I do at home.
At the beach, I met this old gent who showed me how to walk on the rocks without hurting my paws. He's kind of a Yoda to younger dogs. He said he learned from Yoda who told him, "Always pass on what you have learned."
I really like "decking." That's when you share a chaise lounge with one of your favorite people while they read. I even liked doing this when the wind was messing up my hairstyle.
Lots of great dogs live in Provincetown. This Corgi was taking time to enjoy the sun and smell the pansies.
The bestest thing about Provencetown is that you get lots of snuggle time with your family. They are not so busy and after all the long walks we took, they were ready to settle down, and let me curl up and pillow my little head on them.
