Dogs of MSP First Meet Up!

I am WAY behind on posting this, but if you haven't heard, I started a new Facebook group called Dogs of MSP (facebook.com/groups/dogsofmsp). We've got some fun meet ups planned at local dog parks and dog-friendly breweries/patios. It's also just a fun place to connect with like-minded dog folks and share fun pictures and stories.

Dogs of MSP had its first event on Oct. 2nd at Able Seedhouse + Brewery in NE Minneapolis. It was so much fun to get out and bring together old and new friends. Shout out to Finley's Barkery, our official treat sponsor, and they didn't disappoint! How cute is this flight of treats?! And how exciting that they released their new Apple Cinnamon flavor just in time for fall! If you haven't heard about the wonderful workers behind the treats at Finley's Barkery, be sure to check them out.

My friend Andy came out for the first meet up and it really meant a lot to me. It was such a fun surprise because I didn't know he was coming. Not sure if I've mentioned him by name before, but Andy was Nellie's owner. It was so great to catch up and chat with him.

Our friends Brigette and Torque from @mydomesticden were also at the event and Brigette did a really nice recap on her blog, along with pictures far better than mine. Thanks so much, Brigette!

Here are some of the pictures from that day, as well as some that were taken by our friends who joined us.
