So there was George, us lot of cockapoos and a toy poodle called Marley!
And here they come! First there was Poppy …And then there were lots of others!This is Ruby – it’s her first time meeting us … Her daddy is also called George. George meets George!Cockapoos all in a row!There were lots of hugs and cuddles – love was definitely in the air.
Sammy and his adoring mummy, Nicole.Me getting a hug from Praewa – Both Sammy and I came from the same breeder. We do not have the same parents but we look quite similar.We cockapoos roamed under all the tables …Seeking out treats.
Treats?Droppings?We’ll take whatever we could find.Sometimes we asked for them
Sometimes we stole them from the table – right under their noses!
Oh, and this is one of George’s playmates – Piccachu! He’s a Shih Tsu who came along to join us.Towards the end, Marley was getting a bit overwhelmed by all us crazy poos. Her mummy wrapped her up in a blanket.We shared the heart treats that Mummy bought from Dog’s Deli in Düsseldorf.All in all, a fun time was had by all. I hope everyone had a lovely day too!May’s comment: The Henry Root is the very first restaurant I took Darcy to when she was only a puppy. They gave me the confidence to ask about bringing Darcy with me everywhere.
Valentine’s Day was just an excuse for a gathering. Some of us just needed an opportunity to celebrate being with our dogs – to defy the norm where dogs are usually not allowed in restaurants. We went en masse and the place was a lovelier place because the people there were just happy being with their dogs.
There were other diners who did not have dogs but they all loved the sight of so many in a restaurant!
Henry Root is a lovely neighbourhood restaurant with wonderful staff and so welcoming of humans and dogs. Small enough to be intimate but big enough to have a party.
Thank you Henry Root for hosting our cockapoo Valentine’s Day lunch!
