Letter from the Editor DOG

 

I’m paws-itively excited that Revue has an entire section in this issue about fur-peoples like me. They’ve covered trees to sniff, stuff to roll in, and territory that needs marking, as well as featured all the hottest trends in cookies and bones. (Pro tip: It’s time for the real farm-to-bowl cooking, none of this bagged stuff.) There are also tips on places to shop for the latest in haute couture, like some stylish leash-and-collar combos. 

At least that’s what they tell me is in the issue: I never learned how to read, let alone earned any dogtorate degrees. I really have it ruff. 

While I have you on point, please allow me to discuss a most important personal topic. You see, my people sometimes take me to my Grand-paw-rents and then leave me there for a few days. It makes me very pupset to know that they’re out having fun without me, but what’s worse is their stories about how other areas treat fur-peoples like me. 

Even a cat could tell you that Michigan’s got it all backwards with its rules and regulations. In cool cities like Asheville and Denver, many restaurants and breweries welcome my friends onto their patios and even pour them a drink. It’s water, but hey, I’d take it. 

Some Portland restaurants, I’m told, will let my friends inside. One place called Tin Shed even serves special dishes like Ham-Barker Helper, Paw Lickin’ Good and Kibbles-n-Bits, each made with pork, chicken or beef along with a choice of rice or sweet potato. It sounds so good, I just want to roll over.

However, it seems my begging could finally be paying off. In May, the Michigan Senate passed a bill by a 32-6 margin that would create a framework for restaurants and bars to invite me on their patios. But I’ll be doggone if the state House has yet to give the legislation a hearing. If we keep pup the fight, maybe those lawmakers will finally hear us speak. (Let’s hope we don’t have to bribe them with peanut butter just to earn their votes.)

In any event, this has been almost as much fun as doin’ a zoom. If we’ve not sniffed butts before — and even if we have — please stop by Revue as I’d love to introduce myself. My muzzle may be graying, but I always like making new friends. It’s a wag!

Sincerely yours,

Levon-dog
