Bark the Vote Dog Election Results

Gatsby makes a great Uncle Sam doesn't he?
Since Gatsby was taking forever to tabulate the results from Bark the Vote, I decided to step in and work my spreadsheet magic for him. Thanks to everyone who participated! Interestingly enough, the canine results were in line with the actual results. Chicago dogs voted for “Bark” Obama 55% to “Mutt” Romney’s 43% based on... Read more »

Parties, Election and Costumes

Where did summer go? I feel like Kyle had me running all over the city, trips to Starved Rock, trips to Galena, and so much more but he never gave me a chance to sit down at the computer to write about it all! Guess that just means I’ll be doing a lot of paw-ing... Read more »

Make Sure NATO Does Not Ruin Your Dog Walks - Keep Your Dog Safe

A Note from Kyle the Human: In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, NATO is in town this weekend and the city will be experiencing lots of additional security.  Especially if you live somewhere between McCormick Place and North Avenue Beach, you should take extra caution when taking your dog for...

Dog Friendly Milwaukee Admirals Hockey Game

I'm not sure why I'm squinting in the shade...oh well.
So I am very aware that the title of my blog is “Dog Friendly CHICAGO” but since the Wolves and the Hawks have yet to schedule a dog-friendly game day, I had to convince Kyle to take a road trip to Milwaukee on March 25th for the Admirals’ annual dog day sponsored by Pedigree. This... Read more »

    Gatsby the Weimaraner

    Kyle found me at Anti-Cruelty Society when I was about five months old, and he was kind enough to let me move in with him and our cat, Dr. Seuss. Today I have a very rewarding and happy life, and I'm excited to share my perspective about the dog-friendly side of Chicago. But don't worry, I'll also let Kyle share his human perspective from time to time. When I'm not out exploring the dog-friendly side of Chicago for new blog material, you'll most likely find me taking a nap on the sofa, frolicking in Lincoln Park with Kyle, or shredding a tennis ball for no reason at all. As co-owner of Get Pet, I also have a very demanding social calendar. I do my best to equally divide my time between my canine and human friends.
