It’s Summertime♫

In Brachycephalic Breeds, Cats, Dog Friendly Resturants on September 28, 2009 at 5:23 AM

Well, it’s the last weekend of September. The final one.  This is it. Summer is officially (unofficially) over.  And I, for one, am not sorry. Heat is hard on us English bulldogs and for all of us brachycephalic breeds. That’s a big scientific classification word that basically means pushed-in face or short nose. People love our pushed-in faces.

Pugs are a brachycephalic breed. So are the Boston Terrier, Pekingese, Boxer and Shih tzu.  Some cats are brachycephalic, too, like the  Himalayan cat and the Persian cat.  We have a low, low, low threshold for heat so I’m sorta glad summer is over.  I don’t like the heat.

It’s been pretty hot up in here.  Today I was supposed to go to a meetup with other dogs at a dog park, but She didn’t want me in the car for an hour each way so we went to Old Town instead. It seems as though every city in America has an Old Town or Historically preserved village that’s largely a tourist attraction.  She’s compiling a dog friendly resource book so She decided today was going to be a day of research.  First stop: Mad Madeline’s Grill.

What I liked most about Mad Madeline’s was the spritzer jets along the roof edge that kept things comfortable.  The next thing I liked was how really nice all the People were to me.  They gave me a burger patty (and it was pretty large, too). That was delicious! (You know she *never* lets me have People food).

Ummm... TastyAnd they served me a nice bowl of water in a neat bowl.  I don’t, as a rule, drink from bowls, but this time I made an exception.

Most of the customers there today were locals and of course, everyone wanted to take a picture of me and no one minded at all when I visted them at their tables.

I had a *GREAT* time at Mad Madeline’s. I give this casual burger and sandwich jointpuppy dog paw print stencil printable free puppy paw print image puppy dog paw print stencil printable free puppy paw print image puppy dog paw print stencil printable free puppy paw print image out of 4 Dog Friendly Paws  (DFP) up.

The criteria for this DFP rating are:

Accommodation: Are dogs welcomed inside the restaurant and seated among all the patrons?  Is there attached open-air seating or a cool, shady  or heated outdoor patio area or are People with animals treated like an after thought, relegated to a crummy section of the restaurant with “less-than” type service?

Service: Do People with animals receive the same level of attention as patrons sans-animals?  Is the wait staff friendly, empathetic and professionally prompt?

Food: Do People enjoy the food?  Is it well prepared and presented?

Extras: Clean water bowls or drinking fountain, a discrete potty area, treats or even an optional menu for pet partner guests?

She had the pastrami sandwich which was OK but the breading on the fried zucchini was too hard and dark. Definitely over fried or fried in overused oil.  I’m certain, though, that had She complained about the overly hard zucchini, they would have made her a new batch, but She’s not one to complain.  Unless there’s a fly floating in her soup or something, she just accepts that things are not always going to be perfect.

The atmosphere was so pleasant and nice, the place was well at capacity (perfect for people watching) and it was a really nice and happy experience for Her and for me, that’s what all that really mattered.
