    I owe you money, how do I pay? I was confused on directions. by the time I would have got there (not including parking, which was busy) it would have been maybe 10 minutes left. I am very sorry.

    Living in Downtown it's always been a simple short "L" ride and a few blocks of walk to the place so that my baby poodle can have a fun. However, today was different, it was a total mess. Green Line trains were disrupted in Downtown. Had to change to an another train, then a shuttle buses then an another connecting train. I was so cold waiting for the train and shuttle bus. By the time I got to the place, I was exhausted. Hot coffee would made me feel a little better, however somehow, today, with my luck, you didn't have coffee for us :(
    Oh well, as always, my Michael the poodle had a great time.
    Thank you.

      Sorry you had such a tough time today. We opened our doors once a week to allow small dogs a chance to play indoors at only $5 per dog. We are not a restaurant :} Once a month we have a mixer where we have bottomless coffee, bloody mary's, beer, soda & water. Perhaps you confused today with that mixer. Thier is a coffee and sandwich shop next door and you are always welcome to bring in your own beverage. Cheers!

      Josie is correct! The policy that I read last year was that it has to be in a carrier when on the el. :)
