Portland’s for Pups.

This does NOT happen in Portland.

With 32+ leashless dog parks, hundreds of pupcakeries and other pup-friendly amenities, nutritionists, holistic medicine practitioners, acupuncturists and six pet psychics (one who is employed by the Hotel Monaco), Portand sounds like paradise. Here are the other cities Livability lists as the 10 best places for a dog to live (though I hold firm on my desire to live in a supermarket):

  1. Portland, OR
  2. Colorado Springs, CO
  3. Rocky Mount, NC
  4. Boulder, CO
  5. Santa Cruz, CA
  6. Eugene, OR
  7. Asheville, NC
  8. Albuquerque, NM
  9. Nashville, TN
  10. Louisville, KY

They took into account that you’ll be living with a person– so in addition to the quality of life for the dog, they make sure there are jobs and artsy cultural stuff for people, too. Sweet.
