You see some pretty cool stuff while walking dogs. Like this view of the just-about-completed Seattle Pier 57 Ferris Wheel.

I took this shot while walking the two big Akitas on the Bell Street Pier. Someone told me the wheel’s opening June 28. Don’t quote me on that. Quote “someone told me.”

One of the cool things (as if being a giant Ferris wheel wasn’t cool enough) about our new waterfront attraction in Seattle is that it’ll have thousands of LED lights.

So, if the Sounders are playing that night, the wheel can be lit up in the team’s colors. And that’s not a “for instance.” That’s something they will be doing — along with similar tributes to the Seahawks and Mariners.

Red, white and blue on the Fourth of July. Orange and black for Halloween. Looks like they’ve got a lot of fun possibilities.

My mom’s coming to town in July. And, yep. She’s already put a ride on the new Ferris wheel on the itinerary!

Dodgers Fans Can Bring Their Dog To The Ol’ Ballgame

Dog-Friendly Baseball Games

Los Angeles Dodgers fans can bring their dog to the game this Saturday. Around 15 or so Major League Baseball teams have “Bark at the Park” promotions this season.

The Seattle Mariners aren’t on that list. But with Seattle being one of the dog-friendliest and dog-lovingest cities around, I’m thinkin’ fans will be howling for their own dog-day at Safeco Field soon enough!

The way it’s been handled in other cities, your dog has to have I.D. tags and proof of vaccinations, and a separate admission ticket (about 30 bucks). Special dog sections have been designated at the stadiums for the promotions.

The sports statistics guy in me is wondering if each pup at the game counts in the final attendance tally. Hey, they bought a ticket!
