Upon waking, why not ice cream for breakfast? Purple Cow is a delicious pet-friendly ice cream shop in Little Rock featuring specialties such as peanut butter and jelly, purple vanilla, and lime & orange individual flavors. If you’re after something slightly more substantial to eat, Dizzy’s Gypsy Bistro serves up global comfort food with a Southern spin. Dizzy’s welcomes pets of any size on their patio, and will even provide water bowls. If you’re after some of Little Rock’s local charm, be sure to check out the River Market District Overview. The area offers a variety of quirky shops, unique restaurants, and even a seasonal farmer’s market. Dogs are completely allowed as long as you keep your pup on a leash and watch her manners.
If you're planning on getting out for the day check out Friends of Paws Parks, which is located conveniently right near the Arkansas River. Paws Park at Murray is an expansive two acres of runway with a five-foot high chain link fence for the large dogs and four-foot high chain link fence for the small dogs. There are plenty of water troughs, bowls, and fountains for when your pup gets thirsty and expansive sitting areas for when you want to sit back and watch pups of all sizes socialize.
