Sunday Dog Date: The Roasterie

I start pretty much every morning with a cup of Roasterie coffee.

Roasterie coffee

Fair trade Guatemalan is my favorite.

Usually we homegrind and French press our own coffee from the locally air roasted whole beans available throughout Kansas City.

But last Sunday, Luke and I headed to the dog-friendly patio at The Roasterie coffee company’s Brookside neighborhood location.

In the heart of the Brookside shopping district, The Roasterie is a magnet for caffeine-addicted people and their dogs. Braver folks than me tie their pups to the bike rack while they run in for coffee. Others let their pups refresh with a drink from the community water bowl.

On nice days, the patio is often host to multiple dogs and their people. While we were there last Sunday, Luke was one of three canines at our table.

Much to Luke’s disappointment, his beloved Minnie had invited another fellow to our second Sunday Dog Date.

Teddy was tracking a bird.

Luke, always suspicious of other male dogs, took an immediate dislike to handsome hunting dog Teddy.

Fortunately for Luke, Teddy did not join us on the walk along the Trolley Trail that followed coffee.

Luke just can’t take his eyes of his girl.

Don’t worry, Luke. Even though you no longer live together, you will always be Minnie’s husband. Holly says so.

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.
