Books, Sips and Pet Tips for September


News of the World by Paulette Jiles opens on a rainy evening in Wichita Falls, Texas in 1870. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd reads from national and international newspapers to a crowded room. People pay a dime for the chance to listen to stories about the Arctic, India, and Chicago. After the reading, a freight hauler approaches Captain Kidd.

Puppy Playtime

Walker Methodist Care Suites in Edina hosts regular playgroups for dogs provided by Fresh Air Training. Dogs must be less than 20 pounds to participate; however, your bigger dog can come if it could use some encouragement. Please make sure your pet’s vaccinations are up to date. If you’re interested in participating often, ask about a participation pass: $90 for 10 playgroups, $160 for 20 playgroups and $210 for 30 playgroups. This is a terrific opportunity for dogs to get out for a safe and enjoyable playtime experience.


New City Ordinance Allows Dogs on Restaurant Patios

Edina residents love their dogs, and love to keep them by their side. Last October, the City of Edina passed an ordinance allowing dogs on restaurant patios. This does not force businesses to adhere to a dog-friendly environment; it simply puts in place health and safety regulations in the event that they choose to allow dogs. The city was aware of Edina’s love for pets, and therefore put this ordinance into action to better keep pets and people safe in public spaces.
