The Monthly Bark: October 2019

What’s Happening near Raleigh, NC?

Monday, September 23rd marked the first day of fall (autumn, for those that insist that “fall” only constitutes a verb) in the Triangle. Summer gets to watch from the side lines as our mornings get crisp, the leaves begin to change, and pumpkin spice everything engulfs our flavor palette options. Who am I kidding? I am a basic, witch and I love pumpkin spice. So you know what that means….#PSL

In case you couldn’t tell, autumn is my absolute favorite season that comes with lots of local fun around Raleigh. From rescue reunions, adoption events, and dog-friendly bar crawls, October has it all!
