Loews really does love pets!



Los Angeles

Sit Ashland Hill Ú Finally, a restaurant with

an outdoor beer garden and a curated craft beer list that even my Frenchie buddy Pablo Escobeer would appreciate! And for dogs… The first Tuesday of every month is Yappy Hour. It’s a who’s who of meetups with cocktails and small bites for the bigs and a special dog menu for us. But even better, proceeds from the night go to support local petrelated nonprofits.

Snack Healthy Spot Ú This was my favorite

A Little Help Please

I won’t jump on or off the bed or chairs. Is it because I’m welltrained or too scared? You decide.

Stay Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel Ú My stay at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel was suite! Great rooms, a great pool

and great service—what more could you ask for? How about an unobstructed view of the beach and Santa Monica Pier that even a little, vertically-challenged guy like me can appreciate? Loews really does love pets! So much in fact that they had room service drop by with a chicken dinner and a pet-friendly gift basket when we arrived. Be sure to say hi to my new friends Nick and Silvia when you check in and let them know you want to see a Rupert room key card in the future. Even though we live nearby, I can’t wait to come back for a staycation soon.

Roll Bounce

If it rolls or bounces, count me in! I go beyond fetch into attack mode with everything from balls to skateboards. Balloons and roller suitcases? Yep. Those make the list, too.


spot when I lived in Costa Mesa—you could say I was a regular. I’m so happy to see Healthy Spot locations popping up all around Southern California. This boutique pet store has the best gear and the hippest vibe all with healthy and natural options to keep man’s best friend feeling and looking great. They even have a doggie day spa! Because what pup wouldn’t want a massage and a blueberry facial?

Play Santa Monica Pier Ú Who doesn’t love long

walks on the beach? I know I do. Santa Monica is one of those picturesque Los Angeles towns that you need to see in person. From the Promenade on Third Street to the Amusement Park on the pier, there really is something for everybody. Grab your leash and take a stroll on the boardwalk to see one of those famous Southern California sunsets that are even more beautiful than any photo.
