Slowly, we are beginning to run into members of our local dog community that we haven't seen since the cold temperatures set in last fall. People are planning longer walks with their dogs around town and looking to explore destinations outside of their neighborhoods with leash in hand.
We recently caught up with the lovely Miss Friday who has starred in a couple of Sunday Dog posts. We introduced her to Poppy, and she was happy to give our little pup a nice play session.
This is also the time of year that we always see a flurry of visitors to our post reviewing the book, Best Hikes with Dogs, Boston and Beyond. If you are a newer Sunday Dog fan who might want to take a hike with your own Sunday Dog, just click on that link to jump over to it.
Other books on our dog book shelf that help us find places to go with Poppy are:
The last is the most up-to-date. But, while some things have changed in the older guides, they still offer ideas that you can use to plan a daytrip or weekend if you're willing to confirm the information. Rules change and places go out of business within days of some publications, so we always check before going to a place that we are relying on as a destination. This might be the perfect reason to buy a used copy.
And, there are companion books for hiking with your dog in other areas of the country. Click here to see if there is one for your next outdoor destination with your furry friend. Below are the direct links to Boston, New Hampshire, Vermont, and outside of New York City.
