I love every chance I get to take my dog Ernestine on any adventure I can. It can be hard leaving our furry friends when we get ready to head out in the town for a meal. However, that won’t be a problem anymore! Whether you’re visiting the Sonoma area or you’re a local, there are plenty of places to bring your dogs to enjoy a meal with you.
