Go out for dinner with Fido
There are lots of dog-friendly patios in OKC! Take your pup out and enjoy a nice meal together. We’re supposed to have great weather this weekend! Some restaurants even offer dog-friendly food items like a hamburger patty or grilled chicken breast. Check out our website for a list of some of the fur-friendly patios in the area.
Rosé Dog Day , hosted by OKC Dog Moms is happening at Bleu Garten tomorrow, May 12. Come out with your poochie to enjoy food trucks, beverages, and socialize with other dog moms (and dads!)! Follow the link for more info.
Take a stroll at your dog’s favorite park or walking trail
Another way to take advantage of this beautiful Mother’s Day weekend and spend quality time with our fur kids is to take a nice walk together! Head to your pooch’s favorite park and hit the trail! Bluff Creek Trail, Lake Hefner, Mitch Park, and Hafer Park are just a few of the gorgeous parks the metro has to offer.
Watch a movie together
Snuggle up on the couch with your doggie and some popcorn and watch your favorite flick! Or you can head to Movie In The Park TONIGHT (Friday, May 11th) at Mitch Park and enjoy movie on the lawn. Leashed dogs are welcome! There is another Movie In The Park in Mustang tomorrow night (Saturday, May 12th) at the Mustang Parks & Recreation Special Event Center.
Pack a picnic lunch
Pack a yummy lunch for you and some special treats for your poochie and head to your favorite scenic spot! Pick up some yummy treats for your dog at your favorite shop (we LOVE All Fur Paws and Three Dog Bakery!) or make some at home. For a super quick and easy treat recipe check out Molly’s Favorite No Bake Cookie Ball recipe from our March/April issue.
