If I could bring my dog Lily with me everywhere I probably would. She has already been on multiple flights with me and she loves her Timbuk2 Muttmover Backpack! Luckily I live near a pretty dog-friendly part of Minneapolis called Uptown, which I will now call “Puptown” (thanks to the fantastic Apple employee who introduced me to that new name!!), so we can go on fun outings together especially during the cold and yucky months.

There are so many amazing dog-friendly places in a small radius so Lily and I spent an afternoon hanging out at some we haven’t been in before. We didn’t hit up the dog-friendly Target (yes, that’s right, a dog-friendly Target!! Your dreams HAVE come true!) in Puptown this time, but you can check out the Sidewalk Dog blog post with Lily’s photo. 😉


First up was Urban Outfitters where turns out Lily doesn’t know how to hold still if I want to put things on her head…


Next up was the Apple store! Always a hit with kids, and now dogs too!! She got so much attention I forgot to take more photos! Also this is where I heard “Puptown” mentioned 🙂


Then off to Magers & Quinn Bookstore where we found the pet section, of course.


Next we went to one of my favorite card/craft/gift stores, and I didn’t know it was dog-friendly until I asked on our afternoon walk! I was so excited to bring Lily in Paper Source!!


Last on our afternoon tour was CB2! Talk about some fun photo ops!!


A couple other spots near-by, but not on this block, are Barnes & Noble and our local Chuck & Don’s! We go there pretty frequently and Lily is a fan!
