I received my first puppy for my 7th birthday. She was a picture perfect fluffy white Chow named Sheba. Sheba ignited my love for dogs and animals. I've since owned pugs, Maltese, pitbull/boxers, poodles, cats, fish, reptiles, etc. Some would say I prefer dogs to people. I'm greatly looking forward to meeting your four legged family!
Palos Heights is a must-see location on your doggy to-do list, especially if you call the beautiful state of Illinois home. Located in Cook County, a hop and a skip southwest of the bustling city of Chicago, Palos Heights is home to a number of dog-friendly restaurants you’d be doggone crazy to miss out on! With a selection of nine restaurants to choose from, for such a peaceful area, you’re spoiled for choices. Better yet, your precious pup is spoiled for choices!
One of these locations, Zachary’s Lounge and Grill, is a stop you definitely need to make. With a selection of high-class foods, a large wine menu, and an outdoor seating area for you to enjoy with your pup, you really can’t go wrong. Locals go crazy for the restaurant's crab cake appetizers, and a nice steak with a glass of wine is never a bad choice for your main course. Just be sure to bring along a collapsible water bowl, as well as plenty of fresh drinking water for your pup. While you’re at it, bring along some treats too! You won’t be the only one with a rumble in your tummy while here.
Make the trip to River North Chicago, and you’re bound to have a ball! This location in Chicago is home to the Mercury Canine cruise, a wonderful trip for you and your pup pal to go on if you’re interested in seeing the greater bay area. Water bowls and fresh drinking water are available for you and your canine companion, and Fido is free to rest in your lap or even explore the deck a bit while you relax. There is also a newspaper-lined restroom if your pup needs to potty, so you’ll have everything you need.
