Monterey Bay - Annual 2016


Monterey Bay Is The Perfect Place For Owners And Their Pooches To Rack Up Some Quality Time - With Beefy Treats.

Nearly every one of the 800 or so pooches that live in Carmel, one of the top dog towns in the nation, coasts through life. They run on Carmel Beach leashless, consult pet psychics (Sharon Dunn, heart-magick.com), sit for portraitures (artist Steven Whyte), and receive free biscuits from wineries and boutiques. Life is good. Residents Roxy and Lord Wellington are no exception. Only these two English bulldogs work nearly as hard as they play - they have day jobs and contend with paparazzi. The locals, with nearly 100 dog years of experience combined, reveal their go-to spots.

5 Fun Outings For Dogs

The Flap Straight From Their Mouths

GuestLife Monterey Bay interviewed two dogs about-the-town for the scoop on where to go, what to see, and what to eat ... if you've got four legs.

LORD WELLINGTON
Lord Wellington's custom-made cutout gives him backstage access to his owner's sculpture studio without having to beg.

HE SAYS...

Full-Time Job -
Minding Steven Whyte's Sculpture Studio and Gallery on Dolores in Carmel. "I've sold $86,000 in merch, or as it's known in the biz, 'fine art bronze sculpture.' They come to see me." stevenwhytesculptor.com

Point Of Pride -
"The full-figure portrait in bronze that Steven did of me that sells for $695."

Greatest Weakness -
"Any beefy treat preferably from ... well, anywhere."

What Makes You Bark? -
"Nothing. I'm unflappable."

Off-Leash At Carmel Beach -
"I'm not allowed. I steal children's toys. Steven brings me to Second Chance thrift store in Pacific Grove for my own toys." secondchancepg.com

Fanciest Swag -
"For a CNN interview I did, a Diggidy Dog collar that retails for $185."

To Get Away From It All -
"The woods in Pebble Beach, accessible by the fire roads."

ROXY
Roxy loves posing for a snapshot, and likes to dress up for all the holidays, and then some.

SHE SAYS...

Full-Time Job -
Patrolling the concierge desk in the lobby of Carmel Valley Ranch. "I created a meaty room service menu. Bone marrow. Nomnomnom." carmelvalleyranch.com

Greatest Weakness -
