After a ruff week, all you want to do is snuggle with your pupper. At times, that comes at the cost of socialising on weekends, because let’s be honest – who can deny soulful puppy dog eyes begging you to stay under the covers?
Thanks to the animal-loving folks over at Doggie Adventures in Dubai and pet-friendly cafe Kave in Alserkal Avenue, it no longer has to be a toss up between staying in with Fido or hitting the town on Saturday night. You can go ahead and do both at the Doggie Movie Date they’re hosting on June 25.
The movie being screened is the classic Disney tale of puppy love, Lady and the Tramp. It’s not the animated 1955 version most of us grew up on but its 2019 live-action retelling. Either way, we’re sure that when the screen lights up with the iconic spaghetti sequence, one of the most romantic scenes in cinema, your dog’s tail will be wagging and you’ll have a soppy grin plastered to your face.
Who knows, you (or your four-legged pal, or both of you) might find love at the screening. Okay, we know we’re now straying into the territory of another Disney doggy romcom – 101 Dalmatians.
Fine, maybe cupid won’t be entangling your dog leashes and consequently hearts at the event but it’s a good shout to meet like-minded animal lovers and get to know other members of Dubai’s dog-owners community.
Of course, being able to focus on a movie without constantly monitoring your dog’s attempts to sneak some popcorn is always a bonus. Kave will be providing pets with dog-friendly popcorn of their own and you with the regular human-friendly kind.
The movie will start at 5:30pm on Saturday; tickets cost AED 50 and gets one dog parent and their pupper entry, popcorn, and a goodie bag from Dubai Pet Food.
It’s not often that a pet-friendly entertainment activity shows up on Dubai’s social radar, so we’d highly recommend you leash up your dog and get set to unleash some fun.
