Wow! My birthday was the end of September, but the celebrations continue! After our usual morning hike, mom drove us up to Anthem. I knew it wasn’t park day and wondered what we would be doing: breakfast!
We arrived at 3434 W. Anthem Way, #146 at the Dog House Diner. How cool is that? A restaurant for dogs! Not only are my kind welcome there, but the theme is dogs. Woof! My kind of place. When humans have their doggies with them, they have a nice outside area with shade. Now that the morning temperatures are cooling off some, it is the perfect time to check them out. Humans can certainly eat inside as well.
Apparently, the Dog House Diner opened up just as the COVID-19 quarantine and lock down was happening. Bad timing, but they have persevered! We are glad as we were celebrating my and mom’s birthday. In fact, it was on her birthday that we went with human friends Bill, Lisa and my buddy, Norman. Norman is a two-year-old white lab, and he is the coolest. We often hike together now and have a great time.
Anyway, we settled down at the table, and they quickly brought us each a bowl of water. Nice! The humans ordered their meals. Mom made sure she got something with bacon because she knows how much I just love bacon. Who doesn’t? Bill & Lisa tried the lobster omelet and said it was really good. I guess mom and dad had been here for lunch without me once before, and dad had the lobster grilled cheese, which was heavenly.
Mom got a traditional breakfast and it was good, too. I enjoyed my bacon, and Norman’s folks gave him a special dish with food in it. It looked like a puzzle! It didn’t stand a chance, though, up to my smart and savvy friend! While we sat and took in the morning’s fresh air, another human brought their dog. He was a barker. Ugh! Humans – please only bring your dog if he/she is well behaved. Nothing like listening to a yappy dog. Don’t humans know we need discipline? That dog was out of control. Bad human.
Everyone at the Dog House Diner is very friendly with great service and yummy food. It gets high marks on the Kuma scale for sure! It’s just up the road from North Phoenix, so give them a try. Please check their hours online as they change for the weekend. Any questions you can call them at (623) 551-3259.
We all parted ways, and mom and I headed home. I had the opportunity to wish her a happy birthday up close and personal! Awoof. She’s the best, and I am one lucky dog. Until next time!
