Living in Rome: A Canine Perspective

The number of cuddles I’ve received in the local Piazza di Spagna definitely proves the theory that Rome is a pet friendly city. Word on the street is also that Rome increases ones appetite and I can definitely confirm this. I’ll be honest, who can decline spaghetti leftovers? Not me! Thanks goodness for the big parks for me to work off the extra calories – Villa Borghese, Villa Pamphili, Parco della Caffarella – you name it, I’ll run it. A good jog up and down the Spanish steps doesn’t go astray either. Thankfully with all that exercise I’m allowed to travel on the regional  metro, but only on lines A and B, on the first and last carriages and if my family buy me a ticket. Back on the dining front, most of my local coffee bars welcome me while my parents enjoy a cappuccino and one even brings furry visitors a bowl of milk to slurp on. Rome, you are bellissimo!
