““Dogs do speak, but only to those who listen””

My name is Jennifer, and my pup’s name is Brody. He is a 4 year old Shih Tzu-Schnauzer mix & my best friend! I am the mother of 4 grown children, I live & work in the Plymouth-Canton area, have incredible love & respect for all of our four legged friends.I have always had a deep love for animals. While not all pups are initially friendly and cuddly, I’ve yet to meet one that if given time and patience, was not accepting and lovable.

Nine miles east of Taylor along the Detroit River in Wyandotte is a pup-tastic park to check out. Bishop Park has everything you could want in a park; grills and well-maintained picnic areas, restrooms, a playground, ball courts and ample parking. Dogs are welcome here, but must remain leashed. While enjoying the park’s amenities together, take time to look out over the river for spectacular views and see if you can spot some ducks, swans and geese that call the water home. Fishing is permitted from the pier if you are keen on catching some lunch yourself. Failing that, there are four pet-friendly restaurants close by where you can sit with your pup at one of the outdoor tables; RP McMurphy’s, Dangerously Delicious Pies, Belicoso Café and Joe’s Hamburgers. To end the day with something sweet, head to Stroh’s Ice Cream Parlour for a tasty treat.
