Can I say that Liz of Canine to Five Detroit is an absolute genius? Aside from starting the only doggy daycare in downtown Detroit ten years ago (which has since grown rapidly and is super successful; her start up story is truly inspiring), but she also came up with the idea of an event called “Drinking with Dogs” at various hotspots around the metro-Detroit area. What you say–alcohol and playing with cute pups on a gorgeous Michigan summer evening? Yes, please!
My friend Jenny (founder and creator of Exist Detroit, a website focused on sharing the stories of local businesswomen in Detroit–I hope to be featured on there some day! ;) ), her pup, Domino the Chihuahua (follow him on IG @dominothechihuahua. Oh, and while you’re there, follow me too! :D @katkuphotography), and I headed out to Campus Martius, which is located in downtown Detroit. It’s quickly become one of my favorite outdoor hangout spots in the area, especially with the greenery and fountain–so pretty!
There were soooo many cute pups at the event, and I had to resist the urge to scoop them up and take them home with me. So I just made do with taking their photos instead. Here are some of my absolute faves. I’ll refrain from posting all of them here, since I ended up with like 6o images and that would probably take up a crap load of time to download, but you can check out the rest of them here on my Facebook page/album.
This next photo makes me smile so hardcore. Domino is trying to make friends with the other chihuahua (on the right), but he is totally not having it, haha.
