“Animals are such agreeable friends: they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.”– George Eliot

Sometimes, in this crazy, unpredictable world, pets are the key to turning that frown upside down. Never judgey, and always unconditional in their love, dogs and cats and company are the tonic to make a day that much brighter. We don’t deserve ’em!

With summer being prime time for taking our pets outdoors, we found it appropriate to not only celebrate our furry friends, but to also celebrate one of the most vibrant Twin Cities areas in St. Paul’s Grand Avenue with our very special 2019 Gayborhoods & Pets issue!

We take a stroll down Grand Avenue when we profile four of its best businesses; we also tell you about ten pet-friendly Grand Avenue businesses where Fido is more than welcome to stop by. On top of that, we profile Tito’s Vodka and their amazing Vodka for Dog People campaign!

Also, our friend Mike Marcotte offers tips for the upcoming Minnesota State Fair, and Carla Waldemar explores the joie de vivre in Quebec! Plus, we’ll give you a preview of the fabulous festivities of Duluth Superior Pride!

So whether you have dogs or cats, bunnies or ferrets, give your pet a big ol’ hug and take them out on the town while the summer’s still here!
