Oh how we love our dogs! And like me, I am pretty sure there are times that you don’t want to leave  your pups sitting home alone after you have put in a full day at work away from them. (those eyes, guilt us out) Wouldn’t you love to find  a place to take our sweet dogs out to eat and shop .

The Triangle named to one of the Top Pet Friendly areas in the country,(Realtor.com) I have some suggestions for you.
