My dog has officially taken over my closet, bed, sofa, IG account and apartment and it has come to the point where I don't even enjoy hanging out without her. If you love your pooch to the moon and back and know how precious those furrever friends, you'd totally agree with me. *Pawsome high five*
I get the struggle..when I am looking all hawt and gorgeous and just about to go out and behind me, I hear my munchkin coming towards me, giving me the frail whine-sign that she wants to hang out too. Here in Mumbai, the pet-friendly culture is picking up so if you feel like taking your cutie-patootie, sugarplum out on a date and pampering him/her, here's a list of the best 16 pet-friendly cafes in Mumbai (these are on my doggo's bucket list too):
