Celebrity Pug Visits Austin’s Pet-Friendly Zilker Park

Pin It


Celebrity Pug Phoebe Rose and her Mom, Sheila Appleby Williams, from A Traveling Pug visit Austin, Texas.

Phoebe Rose is letting no grass grow under her paws as she explores all the amazing pet friendly nature spots in Austin. It’s pretty hard to top 10 miles of hiking trails circling Lady Bird Lake, although the Zilker Botanical Gardens impressed even a (been there-done that) Tinseltown Red Carpet Pug.

Fossilized dinosaur footprints (a favorite of young visitors) lead to this spot:

Phoebe Rose and pal, Aldous, are fascinated by a resident turtle- but keep their distance:

Dogs (on leash) are welcome at the 30-acre gardeners’ paradise, attracting over half a million people annually to this lush sanctuary of mini gardens, waterfalls and ponds, in the heart of the city.
