Today I’ll be sharing with you the 4 places in Ankara that Mona loves to visit frequently. Even though shes just a pup right now, she lives for the social interactions with other humans. Whats funny is that Mona is more nervous meeting other dogs where as when it comes to humans, Mona is nothing but a hyper active little pup. This list is for someone who have a dog of their own in Ankara and want to explore with them. Need I add they are in no particular order,Ps: I was not possible to get pictures with Mona at these places since she was sick, and that is why I haven’t been able to post recently. I hope you guys understand
The ambiance of this park is what makes it one of the best places for dogs. Not only is it a huge place for your dog to be free and run around, but also, it is a dog friendly park, and not only will your dog meet others of its kind but also you’ll be making new friends who are fellow dog lovers like us. Personally I love that dogs can roam around freely with little to no care in the world because the people there are okay with dogs. Just watching Mona running around and exploring is one of the cutest things ever. I’m sure if you take your little friend with you, you’ll feel the same way
Located at Kennedy right next to Tunalı, F451 is one of my favorite places to go to. Right next to it is an art gallery and a tattoo shop. The reason why I love the cafe so much and enjoy it with Mona is because, firstly, the owner is a really friendly. Secondly, everyone loves dogs. Mona loves to make new friends everytime I take her there. Its one of the places where I love to study, and the added benefit is I can take Mona there whenever and for however long I want and no one will have a problem with it. The coffee at F451 is amazing and so are the cakes that are freshly baked everyday. If you end up going here do not forget to try the fresh lemonade on a sunny day!
One of the best things about being a parent at University is that you can take your dog to campus and let your Canine
friend roam freely without a problem. A few people might be scared but that’s part of the fun. Watching Mona off the leash just running around exploring a new world is the added benefit. Other students also bring their puppies or grown up dogs to campus and its really fun to see them interact. Its true that if you’re in Ankara and not a Bilkent student, this would be pretty hard for you, however, if you are, it is really fun for not only you but your little friend as well.
Finally we have Eymir Lake. It is a must go to regardless if you have a dog or not. Over here you can go canoeing, or rent a bicycle and explore the whole area. The best part about the trip with Mona was that it was her first time swimming. After that we went on a long ride, her running alongside me while I rode a bike. It was an amazing experience. Your dog will love it here, as it is also a place where people love to take their dogs.
I hope the list was enjoyable to read for all of you as much as it was enjoyable for me to write. Comment below wherever you have taken your dog in any part of the world and how fun it was!
Once again I apologise for not posting more often, I had midterms and could not give time to my blog!
Until next time!
