    Hello SoWal-lers -

    I don't know if this has been covered before, but I'm down here with my pooch and I'm wondering if anyone has compiled a list of dog-friendly places on 30A, especially in the Seaside/Grayton/Seagrove area - restaurants, cafes, etc. He's beach-legal (got his SoWal permit) but I'm looking for places where I can take him and eat, hang out, etc. So far Cafe Spiazzia and Beach Java have been very nice and let him hang out while I ate/surfed the graytonbeach.com website. Any other suggestions?

    Actually, the question should be........What kind of pooch lets you live at his/her house? ;-)

    That's how it is here anyway. :wub:

    Have you seen the Dryer's Ice Cream frozen treats for dogs...four to a pack and sold at supermarkets? It comes in "original" flavor (I'm told it tastes like frozen chalk.) and now "peanut butter." No dairy, soy based since most dogs are lactose intolerant. Best thing is that it's better for dogs than ice cream is for people. Yes, dogs get frozen brain, also if they lick it too fast. Does anyone know if this is at Publix?

    We have a new Havanese puppy that will come to Grayton in October and December, so this is a great thread. He loves go go out with us. Thanks for leads on dog-friendly spots.

    I think the product is called Frosty Paws(?) I have found it in Publix and Winn-Dixie. My little ones got some on their 1st Birthday this year.

    I haven't seen the p'nut butter flavor but I have seen the vanilla. Hopefully, it isn't a "seasonal" item.

    Dogs used to hang at the Red Bar. Now you can hardly squeeze a Fox in.

    I've seen a 200-pound mastiff in Modica. That's one awesome-looking dog.

    Our old guy Tucker (an English Mastiff) was 180. Tucker is the 10th one down

    Now we have smaller mastiffs--our male is a 140 pound runt, smaller than Rosie, who is 155.

    Elwood loves the water and we hope to introduce him to the beach some day.

    Hope yours are as well-behaved as the one whose owner has a place at Seaside. I was impressed by the calm temperament of that dog. Great pix of your dogs BTW. Here's a photo of my standard poodle baby on her first visit to Seagrove Beach at 5 months.

    I was excited to see you have a Havanese puppy. My wife and I are thinking about getting one but we live here along 30-A and have only seen one once and that was on a visit to San Francisco. We're still looking for a breeder within driving distance.

    I'm sure you're puppy is great. Any problems or issues?

    By the way you are over your allotment and you can no longer receive private messages.

    Dreamsicle,
    Back to the question at hand, Dogs are not welcome at most places around 30-A. In the winter, when I will occasionally go into Destin, I take my dawgs to the Home Depot. They love it going to people places.

    Mine is a black Lab. His first day at the beach was a smashing success, although he was perplexed that the water was salty and seemed to chase him. Now that he's gotten used to the idea of waves, and quit trying to drink the Gulf water, he's content to swim and chase low-flying birds up and down the beach (once a bird-dog, always a bird-dog).
    I have to say the folks at Beach Java are great about having a comatose black Lab lying on their cool concrete floor...

    Take him down to Sundog books to see Sundog, the black lab. My DH took our dog, Catfish, down one day and they just lay on the porch together napping - just what a beach dog should do on a warm afternoon.

    Wait Catfish rides shot gun in a car. That's not a normal dog. Not to mention...he has eyelashes!

    I almost tripped over Sundog last week. I was browsing around and thought he was a rug! He's a laid back dog for sure.

    Yes, Catfish does have eyelashes. I have mistaken him for DH's girlfriend sitting in the front seat. Then, they turned the corner and his ears were all wiggly. That's about all the girlfriend DH has - a Catfish!!!

    Do you know when the three of us ride in the car where I have to sit? Yep, backseat!!!

    Did you also know he is the mayor of Seagrove? Just got elected!!!
