So much to do, so little time!

Hello Basil friends! Another Travel Tuesday has snuck upon us and life has been so hectic as of late I don’t have a new dog friendly destination info graphic for you. As some of you already know our little family is moving back to the west coast in a few weeks so we have been trying to squeeze as much fun out of Charlotte, NC as possible!

For today, I thought I would post a few pictures from the Bark at the Ballpark event that happened this last Sunday at the Charlotte Knights BB&T stadium. We had an amazing time and as always Basil & Jack were a huge hit!

 Charlotte,NC is a amazingly dog friendly place and as this beautiful city grows it’s becoming even more so. If you get a chance to explore it; totally do!

Here is also a flashback to our very 1st Basil presents Dog Friendly Destinations- Charlotte, North Carolina. I hope you enjoy it and keep some of this rad spots in your mind when visiting here!

 I promise to post a new D.F.D next Tuesday and a lot more as this week continues.

Hope you are having a great cinco de mayo! May your sun be shining and your beer be cold! Xoxo

YouTube is for the dogs…

Hello friends! Hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday! We woke up this morning with a light dusting of snow and a very cold house. Because of this, Basil and I have been snuggled under our electric blanket watching our “stories” on YouTube.

It occurred to me that I spend a lot of my time on YouTube. A lot of my favorite shows are online only and it so easy to have on when I work. Also if you are sad or down there is so many great little “pick me ups” to rise your spirits. It really has a little bit of everything!

Today I thought I would share just a few dog related videos that always make me smile.
Warning! Some of these videos contain adult language and silly adult behavior. If you have a strong opinion about either of those things or are a child, this post is not for you!
