Now we know this weekend is for you AND your dog, but occasionally, they might want a vacation too! They'll be treated like royalty here and you might have a few itinerary items that aren't dog friendly to take care of. 



6. Volunteer at the Humane Society

This suggestion is especially important. The local Humane Society is holding one of their general volunteer orientations this Saturday. It's a great way to get in some snuggles if you don't have a dog (or are thinking about adopting one).
