Cajun Tails: City Dogs

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.”
 

“Pushkin” dines with his humans at Royal House, New Orleans
 
  The one thing I feel most joyful about after returning from our New Orleans & southern Louisiana trip is being back with Maggie again. The way she attaches to me like velcro is a wonderful feeling. I love petting her or throwing the tennis ball again as she repeatedly bugs me while I type our blog. It’s a wonderful nuisance. Meanwhile, Maggie wanted to know about the dogs from Louisiana. I told her there are too many tails to tell so, how about a sampling? Woof Woof! When my daughter and I dined at Royal House in the French Quarter of New Orleans a couple with cutest dog sat by our table.

  You see, Royal House is pet friendly. They opened the outside shutter door of their French Quarter restaurant to accommodate Pushkin and his family. This small dog was the most well-behaved dog. People continually walked by the restaurant and he never barked. We were told by his owner that his name is Pushkin. He was named after the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin. Pushkin is a 5 year old dog mix of Italian Greyhound, Terrier and Chihuahua. He was adopted from a shelter in San Francisco, CA. Our home turf! Pushkin laid at his owner’s feet during dinner. His water was in a styroform take-out container right next to him. By the way, the food at Royal House is delicious! That’s another story….
  In the city of New Orleans we saw many dogs walking about, sitting or pulling their owners on a skateboard! One art gallery in the French Quarter called Rodrigue Studio New Orleans was all about the Blue Dog. This display in the art gallery window rotates into different primary colored dogs; blue, yellow, and red.

  Maggie likes hearing about the city dogs of the French Quarter, but now it’s time to play tennis ball…. OK MaggieMoose-let’s step alive and play ball!

Maggie patiently waits
