THE DOODLE SPOT

The Doodle Spot” is one of our new initiatives for 2016.

TDS---CAR

If you have a dog, then this is the place

Charleston’s loaded with dog friendly space

From beaches to restaurants – stores or hotels

Local shops with doodle*licious canine smells

Like the outdoors? She’s loaded with parks

Plenty of room for romps filled with barks

Historical landmarks can be found all around

And the best part of all is she welcomes your hound

There’s so much to see, there’s so much she’s got

So once a month we’ll feature –

TAGLINE-FOR-TDS

Can’t wait to explore and showcase our “Groovy Hidden Treasures” in Charleston SC. Even though I’ve been visiting here for decades – living here is a totally different experience.

Each month the Boys will sniff out some Doodlerrific gem of a place that either caters to or welcomes dogs. #photosgalore

Join us as we navigate through a city historically rich in culture and the arts. A city that embraces dogs more than any city I’ve ever lived in. #incrediblyfriendly

The Doodle Spot has it’s own tab on our homepage so you can always visit there if you think you’ve missed a month.

Our first hidden treasure will post on Monday, January 18th.

Be kind to someone and as always, thank you for sharing us with your friends!

        Poogan ( my 3 year old goldendoodle) and I love living in and exploring Charleston. I can’t wait to see what extra spots we can travel to together!!

          Hi there Poogan! Nice to meet you! Since you already live in Charleston, you’ll love our first hidden treasure – just wait and see! PAWhaps once the weather gets a little drier LOL we can get together for a little romp. Have a great weekend 🙂

    We do something similar in the warmer months, where we explore all the beautiful spots in our area. We didn’t make it a feature though, maybe we should. I can’t wait to see all the Doodle spots you visit!

    My Aunt and Uncle love Charleston. My uncle was stationed there for a while, 30 something years ago. When he retired from the service, they moved to Alaska. Now that they are older, my aunt decided she couldn’t handle Alaskan winters any longer. So they bought a brand new house in Charleston. Then after living there a short while, they couldn’t stand how hot it was…after living in Alaska over 20 years. So they sold they house and moved back to Alaska! (Plus their daughter and grandchildren were still in Alaska, and they missed them.)

      You should. I too love to read about many of the states/regions that I’ve yet to visit. Makes me feel like I’m there. I chuckled at your story about your parents! Sounds like they may have needed a summer home here in Chas so that they could have the best of both worlds.

    Sounds like so much fun, can’t wait! Wish we live in a more dog-friendly town!

      Thanks Earl – hope you will enjoy spending a little time with us in Chas each month!

    Have fun. One of the few things Mom misses about living in Germany is the dog friendliness. We could go almost everywhere over there, but here, almost nowhere. Love your signature, by the way!

      When we lived in Germany Emma, we didn’t have dogs, but I remember how cool it was for dog people to bring their furry family members along with them.

    That sounds like it will be a fun place to visit! I can’t wait to see your photos. 🙂 We don’t have any of those super cool pet-loving sorts of places here in Michigan. I love the photo of Harley and Jackson! It looks like they are having a great time.

      They love to ride in the car – I could be going to the gas station and they’re wearing a smile on their faces #sillydoodles I am over the moon excited with all the positive interest in The Doodle Spot – can’t wait to get started.

    I had no idea Charleston was so dog friendly. I’ve always been intrigued by the area and look forward to your personal tour.

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 14, 2016

      Sharon it is over the top dog friendly – I can’t wait to share some of our dog friendly places along with some of the beauty of the city. How have you been?

  • M. K. Clinton
    January 13, 2016

    What a great idea! I wish our city was more dog friendly, but I look forward to living vicariously through you and the Doodles. ☺

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 14, 2016

      That’s the whole idea MK – let us bring a little bit of “dog friendly Charleston” to you! 🙂

  • Claudette Pope

      Thanks Claudette – I can’t wait to share all of Charleston (well as much as I can find) with you. PAWhaps you will hop in the car and decide to visit one of these days!

    Oh this sounds exciting. I have never been to Charleston and look forward to seeing the city. I’ve heard it’s absolutely beautiful!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 14, 2016

      It’s always been a place that makes me smile, and I’ve never tired of coming. Living here seems to have that same effect on me, so I just have to share all of its splendor with my blogging community. Who knows – you might just decide to come along and visit us 🙂 #youralwayswelcome

    What a wonderful idea and I love the name you came up with to showcase these adventures! 🙂

      Thanks Spencer – Hope you enjoy our hidden treasures each month too!

  • Elaine

    I love this idea and can’t wait to see lots of sights around town. Hey, maybe Haley’s twin from down the street will show up one day, lol!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 14, 2016

      I took my camera on a walk the other day Elaine, but there wasn’t a Haley “look-alike” sighting anywhere. I will capture one and post it on FB -#justforyou! Take care!

    The Doodle Spot sounds wonderful, I look forward to seeing your monthly segment. We travel cross country a lot and I’m always looking for dog friendly cities & destinations!

    I love Charleston! Haven’t been down there in ages, even though Greenville is only about 3 hours northwest of there. I just don’t like driving as much as I used to. Of course if I win the lottery, I’ll be able to hire a chauffeur to do all my driving for me. LOL. Looking forward to the treasures you share with us!!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 14, 2016

      Well if you are one of those three winners that they announced this morning – then I expect to see you pull up in grand style. The Boys and I will be waiting 🙂

    Brilliant, enjoyable and creative poem there. Have a lovely day.

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 14, 2016

      Thanks so much Juliet! I know Charleston is a great distance from you, so I hope you tune in and experience it with us each month. Have a wonderful day 🙂

      I hopped over and commented 🙂

    Great post! Charleston is beautiful and it’ll be great to read about your recommended dog-friendly spots.

      Thanks – Charleston is a very special place – for humans and our pets! Have a great weekend 🙂

    Such a smart idea for a series! I love it! You should totally make your chamber of commerce aware that you’re doing this. You could boost tourism! (Sorry… I do marketing writing as my day job. Can you tell?)

      I thought about the tourist places downtown but never the Chamber – #genius I’m gonna shoot you an email later today – let’s talk you marketing guru you! 🙂

    Dog friendly cities are the best! I just took Leo to visit my dentist today. They have a sandwich board inviting dogs to come in for a free Dentabone!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 15, 2016

      What a genius idea! I hope you took Leo in 🙂

  • Pamela

    Loved the poem. And I’m so excited. I hope we have internet in NC on Monday but I’m doubtful. #NCmoreremotethanMars 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 15, 2016

      HA! Thanks Pamela, I’m quite the poet after a glass of wine 🙂 No internet? OMDoodle 🙁 Well, paws crossed that you do – and should it not work out, always know that it will be there waiting when you do.
