Day Drinking for Dogs

Villalobos Rescue Center New Orleans

I LOVE when things work out like this - it's kismet!!  We'd planned a trip to New Orleans for a Basketball Game (The Detroit Pistons vs The New Orleans . . . I don't know. . . ) and of course to visit one of our favorite cities. 

The music - the food - the fabulous vibe of this city - it's difficult NOT to enjoy a trip to The Big Easy.

We booked an Airbnb  - which is our go-to accommodation because it's a zillion times better than a hotel - especially when you're traveling with your pup (which we always are).

And Cheryl's place did not disappoint - she has a duplex shotgun home in the Bywater district (this area is really up and coming) and it is AWESOME.  She lives on one side and you stay on the other side.  Her home is Mardi Gras themed - very comfortable - safe - there's a pool - she keeps music playing outside in the yard - the bar was stocked for us . . . I mean - that's just FUN.  We've already booked to go back in a few months.  We liked it.

Cheryl is also a lover of animals and has two rescue pit bulls of her own - a few cats - feeds the birds (there were wild parrots ya'll - I had never seen that) chickens ventured over one day.  It's an oasis. 

We crossed paths with our host in the yard on our first day and she mentioned she works at Villalobos Rescue Center - a few blocks from her place and we should go over to check it out.  And of course, we did!!  We'd never watched the show on Animal Planet but it seems to be generating a great awareness to help what these hardworking humans are doing.

We toured the rescue and met the stunning adoptable dogs - we ate at Tahyo Tavern (which donates all it's proceeds to the rescue) and we went back in the evening to walk some of the pups. 

Our visit to Villalobos Pit rescue was a brilliant way to spend a day in New Orleans. Sure, we ate beignets and did some day drinking - but the best experience was staying with Cheryl and being open to her life and interests to realize we have so much in common.  It enriched our trip by an immense amount and you're simply not going to find that at a hotel.
