There’s dog-friendly … and then there’s dog welcoming. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ A couple days ago, I walked into @hendobrewco with two English Setters in hand. It was a Thursday night and just one free table remained. Despite the number of people, a dog bowl of water instantly appears at our table. The dogs lap it up, tails wagging. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ At this local brewery, customers order at the bar – there’s a clear sign reading: “Order here” hanging by the register. Our bartender @matt_the_watson delivers a beer promptly to my seat preventing any leash tripping and spilling hazards. He lets the dogs wind in and out of his legs, offers his face for a sloppy lick, stands as a firm post for a good Winston lean, and offers a hand or two for a few booty scratches. Then while paying our bill, much to Ivy’s pure delight as she has an affinity for stealing sips of fine brews, Matt pretends to serve her a beer for a Winstagram photo op. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ There’s dog-friendly … and then there’s dog welcoming. And we thank our stars every day we have the latter in our small Kentucky town.
