Elly is a city dog. In other words, she loves going out and seeing the different city sites, visiting beer brewpubs, and smelling great foods. Even sometimes enjoying them. Walking around during a barbaque festival is exquisite torture for her with the possibilities of licking something off the sidewalk.
And we spoil her. One of our favorite places to go is the Oceanside Ale Works. A warehouse containing the brewing center of that delicious strong ale. When we go, Elly sometimes gets a special treat. She loves her bully sticks, lying on the cold concrete eating. Other dogs wander around and she knows they would take her treat if unguarded for even a moment. She eats fast, but that danger of loss makes the treat even better. Add in no puppy AKA no babysitting duties and life is wonderful for a moment.
