No Egos in Parkdale

When I moved downtown from Mississauga a few years ago, I moved to Parkdale.

Just around the corner from The Rhino.

I rented a small house owned by a woman with really strict rules (no puppies allowed!).

But I did what I had to do to be closer to work. Closer to downtown.

When Tara moved in with me and we got our dog Marley, we needed to find a place where we could take her.

We used to walk around here a lot when we moved in. Carrying a puppy, we couldn’t get very far.

The Rhino is one of the only dog friendly spots in Toronto.

The first time we realized we could sit here with Marley, we sat here for a while, but she couldn’t walk back. I had to tie her in my shirt like I was carrying a small child!

There are no egos in Parkdale. That’s what I love about it.

Thanks to Ash for sharing his story. Check out his adventures in Toronto on Instagram!
