Understand your dog breed activity level and need for attention. There is not a one size fits all exercise and attention plan for dogs. Research the breed and ask specific questions about the dog before adoption so you fully understand the commitment that you are making.
The White Tank Mountain range is located on the far West side of metro Phoenix, within the edge of Maricopa County. Not as popular with hikers in the summer due to the brutal heat, this becomes a popular mountain trail in the cooler months.
The views are spectacular with a variety of hiking trails of several levels of difficulty to accommodate everyone. The Waterfall trail is even wheelchair & stroller friendly. Best of all, the park is dog friendly, so bring your pup along for a great day outside enjoying the spectacular desert beauty.
Don’t let the name fool you, the waterfall trail is often a small trickle in dry season. After a big rain storm, like the summer monsoon season, the waterfall is flowing and cool. A few special days, the waterfall is big enough to form a small pool for a quick, refreshing dip.
L’Auberge resort is the premier luxury resort in Sedona, Arizona, providing a relaxing, dog-friendly vacation.
Sedona, Arizona is a little town that has made a big splash. The unique red rocks and perfect weather ensure that Sedona would not be a secret for very long, and sure enough by the 1980’s Sedona hit the big time for tourist destinations.
The temperature is starting to cool off and people around metro-Phoenix can finally venture outside with less fear of catching fire, or at least it feels that hot all summer long here. Today a friend and I took my dogs out for a walk along Tempe Town Lake, the man-made lake in the middle of bustling University town Tempe.The park around the Lake is home to many festivals and concerts, so be sure to check out upcoming events here.
I prefer to plan my own event at the Lake. Bring a picnic basket for a fun family activity during the day, or romantic get-a-way in the evening. There are plenty of bike paths, walkways, shade trees, and benches. The dogs love to walk around the lake with me. There are mountain views to the north of the lake and the park is well kept and clean.
The main attraction is the lake, and there are quite a few activities to enjoy on the water. Today we watched people sailing, kayaking, fishing, and on paddle boards. There is a boat rental office on the south side of the lake for small boats, hydro bikes, and kayaks.Lake or land, the sunset is worth hanging around to watch.
I met a friend for lunch today at Bombay Spice restaurant. This was not our first visit and there will be many more meals here.
Bombay Spice is Indian Cuisine with an american twist. They have a dog friendly front patio and intimate indoor seating. I first sampled their cuisine at Scottsdale Culinary Festival, but never knew the location (Northwest corner of Tatum and Shea, Phoenix).
Between my friend and I, we are have quite the food allergy list. Bombay Spice offers vegetarian options and can accommodate any food allergy that you can imagine (gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, corn, yeast, rice, and more).
The appetizers are big enough to share. My favorite are the Chickpea Ceviche served cold, and Lentil Cake hot appetizer.
The Tikka Masala is coconut-based for a lighter sauce than the more common yogurt or cream based sauce. They offer white rice, brown rice, or quinoa for many entrees, served with Naan or Dosa.
Indian cuisine, or you want to try a non-curry meal, then try a Biryani containing basmati rice, spinach & vegetables, almonds, and mild spices. Served with Papadum crisps so my gluten-free friend share part of my meal.
Save room for desert the Mango Sorbet topped with pistachio is not to be missed! The service is excellent, taking great care of us and the dog in our party. I am already looking forward to my next visit!
