Here's the coffee shop where the owner had lots of pictures of her pup, so she obviously loves dogs and makes an excellent cuppa joe. Yay!
Julie is super nice and loves dogs! There is a photo of her dog, Forrest, at the register. Sadly, Forrest is no longer here in person, but he lives on in fond memories of everyone who met him. Julie rescued him from a shelter and he got to spend his days at the bookstore with her - meeting and greeting, loving and being loved, and befriending everyone who visited. Julie's a big supporter of rescues and shelters. You should definitely visit her if you're anywhere near Dubois.
And, now, here's some big news if you're visiting the area in August - well, it might be big news for your humans - we've been told dogs aren't really allowed at the event, because there will be livestock and such all over the place. On August 20, the Bacon Brothers, mmmmm bacon, what? huh? oh yeah, the Bacon Brothers (you know, Kevin - the actor, and his bro Michael) are performing at a benefit concert for the Chance Phelps Foundation. You may have seen the movie about Chance on HBO, Taking Chance, starring Kevin. We saw it - very sad, but very good. Anyway, there's this big event in Dubois at the City Park, 'cause that's Chance's hometown, on August 20 that sounds like tons of fun while benefiting a good cause. Just so you know, dogs on leashes are usually allowed in the park - just not for this event. We've also been told there is a place in town that boards dogs. We know that's not thrilling for all of us dogs, but it means your folks could take you with them if they wanted to go and the "boarding" would only be for a few hours. And, there are several hotels in town that DO allow pets. Check 'em out here Hotels / Motels.
Whew, that's a long post for a place we hardly spent any time!
