What's your dog's name and how old are they? What breed or mix are they? (We're not picky, just curious!)

Both are beagles. Daisy, 11 years old and Jerry, 9 years old.

What area of Houston do you and your dog live? How did you and your dog find each other?

We currently live in the Museum/Medical District across the street from Herman Park. We LOVE this area and Jerry and Daisy love hunting rabbits at the park! Jerry is from a beagle rescue, in Melbourne, Florida, where he living with over 40 other beagles! Daisy was a stray in my neighborhood back home who was never claimed by here original owners.

What is your dog's favorite activity? (Dog parks, dog sports, hiking, etc.)

These guys enjoy socializing with people more than other dogs. Especially Daisy. Jerry will frolic with other dogs his size, but he likes to be the initiator.

Which are you and your dog's favorite Dog Parks? Do you visit the large or the small dog part of the parks? Favorite Dog-Friendly taverns, restaurants and/or establishments?

I don't know that I can say we have a favorite, but I'm quite fond of Boneyard Dog Park. Dogs, beer, wine and food trucks - what's not to like!

Are there any special considerations which Members need to be aware of when socializing with Your Dog?

If you have food, no matter how small of a morsel, on your person-they will sniff it out! They are a little "mouthy" at first around other dogs (only since moving here), but once they sniff their new friends they are fine.

Introduction

New to Houston. I just relocated here from Florida for work.
