Dog-Friendly Manzanita

Last week, we went to the Oregon coast. It is awfully pretty there! We hadn't been in a while (since last October?) and we were all happy to be by the ocean again. I took Pug to Manzanita one day, my favorite town on the coast. It's quaint and cute, and best of all, very dog-friendly!

Pug met a bunch of pooches, including this adorable pug named Yeti.

We stopped in Four Paws On The Beach, a pet store that carries a nice selection of dog and cat toys. Dogs (on leashes) are allowed in the store! Pug picked out a red leopard-print toy bone.

While standing outside a cute yarn shop called T-Spot, an employee in the shop spotted Pug and said "Come on in!" They allow "well behaved dogs on leashes" in their store. The same thing happened again up the street when we were standing outside Overboard, a puzzle and game store. The owner has a pug at home and really wanted Pug to check out her shop! So we did:

It's a pug-sized scooter!

After shopping, we hit the beach. Is this not a picture of pure joy?

I've never seen Pug look happier than when he's on the beach.
