Weasley Explores Paulus Hook

Last Saturday, we took Weasley, who  has now had the complete series of puppy shots and can walk on the ground, to the Paulus Hook  section of Jersey City a neighborhood populated with old brown stone houses, restaurants and shops.  (There is also a dog park but Weasley is a bit young for that).

First we took Weasley by Canine Canteen a doggie boutique with three friendly black lab greeters.   

Weasley had a great time playing with the labs, I could not get a very good picture because he would NOT stay still.

Later he met 2 long haired dogs, one was a Peke and I believe the other was a long haired chihuahua.  Weasley seemed a little more intimidated by these two, maybe he isn't used to dogs with long hair?

After our walk we went to brunch at The Light Horse Tavern the food at this place is good and the staff is very friendly.  Outdoor cafes are a great place to socialize puppies and work on some obedience skills, one of my training goals for Weasley is for him to be a really good "cafe dog."  During brunch, Weasley got a ton of compliments and the manager even came out to see him, he recognized the origins of his name too since he commented on him being in "Gryffindor"  

Have a lovely weekend!
