A recent PI DOG trip to the German Bakery resulted in happy pups and people :-)


From left to right, here we have Bonnie, Skye, Sadie, Maggie & Ranger waiting patiently for their owners on the back deck - which you can see is dog friendly!


Thanks to the German Baker for creating a dog patio...thanks to Lynn Edler who hosted the event and thanks to the PI DOG members that came out to socialize!
