Sookie

SDP 1-3-13
Sarasotans love their dogs.  So, it's quite common to see humans with their fur friends at outdoor venues here.  I spotted little Sookie at O'Leary's tiki bar on Sarasota Bay on New Year's Day.  She's a  2 1/2 year old morkie.  (That's a cross between a maltese and a yorkie, according to her human.)  They were enjoying the beautiful weather to start the new year, something which they probably would not have been able to do in Boston, where they just moved from. Perfect time to move with the beautiful weather being what it is here...versus...there.   I bet Sookie is happy with that decision.  Welcome!  By the way, O'Leary's was one of the first places in Sarasota to give man's best friend a warm welcome when the city officially approved outdoor doggie dining about five years ago.

Well, I do like the weather in southwest Florida, but dogs dining at the table next to me are not welcome. Boston has that one right.

I'm a sucker for little dogs. This one is a real cutie.

Awww Sookie is gorgeous! I love it when cafe's put down bowls of water and dogs are welcome while owners have a coffee!

Well, a morkie is a new one to me. I'll bet Sookie made some new friends.
