Slow and steady progress across multiple major projects feels quite nice!
But before we get to our “tortoise and hare” style of renovating, we have a few fun things to update you on this week, including a live TV morning show debut!
First off, last Friday was National Dog Day, or #NationalDogDay if you were paying attention to the Internets. It’s a day when you’re supposed to celebrate your four legged canine’s contribution to your life a little more than on other days. But in Old Town Alexandria pretty much every day is National Dog Day.
Our city is so incredibly dog friendly that many stores place water bowls and dog treat trays on the sidewalk near their door, shops advertise their dog friendly stance with “Pet Friendly” signs placed in their window, some restaurants have a “dog menu” for when you’re sitting outside eating and your pup is under the table, there are several dog (and cat) specialty stores, there’s a local weekly “Yappy Hour” in the courtyard of the Hotel Monaco, and we even have multiple parades where the highlights are either the dog show just before or the packs of dogs with their owners marching during the parade.
If you’re a dog lover, you really can’t beat Old Town Alexandria, and that was the focus of a live “Great Day Washington” segment for which Lulu was invited to be a model.
