Burger, burger, burger – yum! I love burgers! And mom said I can get a burger every night of my birthday week if I share it with my sister! Luckily there are several restaurants in New York City where I can have my burger and eat it, too! Here are eight spots where spot is welcome! Can’t wait to see where we go tonight!

We love the Story boutique on Tenth Avenue at 19th Street in Chelsea. Every four to eight weeks the shop changes concept with a different theme. The current theme, Made in America, showcases a wide variety of products from around the nation. Best of all, each new theme includes a cute pet area with carefully curated items.

The shop is located at 144 Tenth Avenue at 19th Street.

Ghost towns, cemeteries, and haunted houses, oh my! | thepupdiary.com

17 Oct

It’s the season for spooky and scary FUN! Over the summer we visited two ghost towns out west. Find a ghost town near you!

Arlington National Cemetery

Arlington National Cemetery

Pups are also welcome at many cemeteries, which can be great places for walks and history lessons. Earlier this year we toured Arlington National Cemetery in the Washington, DC area. Leashed dogs are welcome to tour the cemetery and see the famous sites. We have also visited many beautiful cemeteries in Vermont and recently on Block Island. Permanently New Yorkers was a recommended book to find burials of the famous and infamous in New York state. The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is on our list!

So we aren’t actually going to visit any creepy haunted houses! But we will attend some fun upcoming doggy parties with haunted house decorations! Etsch Farms will welcome pups at their corn maze on November 2. Pups on the Runway will feature spooky decor at their October 25 event. And we’ll also check out the Central Park Pumpkin Fest on October 26.

Hudson River Park’s flower contest | thepupdiary.com

15 Apr

We love Hudson River Park!  (Yes, there are several “no dog” signs in the beautiful green areas, but we understand they want to maintain the lawns, gardens, and shrubs.)  The walking and biking paths extend from Lower Manhattan up to 57th Street where the park turns into Riverside Park.  There are 3 enclosed dog runs, many dog-friendly seasonal cafes, beautiful sunset views, and plenty of other gorgeous scenery.  

Hudson River Park's Flower Contest

Hudson River Park’s Flower Contest

This past weekend we noticed several signs promoting the park’s official flower contest.  The Park community is asked to vote for the flower they think is best suited to be the official park flower.  On April 22nd, they will announce the winner.  (Vote here.)  We vote for the Daylily.  We actually thought they were Daffodils.  In any case, they look like the sun and brighten the park.  They are very pretty!

The Frying Pan and PD O’Hurley’s are great places to stop for a (dog-friendly) bite to eat along the way.  Watch out for rats at PD O’Hurley’s!  They like to romp under the outdoor cafe flooring!
