16 Magic Moments From a Dog’s Adventures in Los Angeles

April 19, 2016 by Brian Champlin

If you ask my girlfriend and business collaborator Christina Minh about my feelings towards our dog Milo there is almost certainly one word, and one word only, she’d use to describe me: OBSESSED.

I’m not going to deny her accusation, but I will say this: The reward for my obsession has been an unforgettable set of memories and an unbreakable bond that I would not trade for the world.

Below I’ve cataloged just a few of the captures I’ve taken over the course of the adventures of myself, Christina, and Milo as we’ve gotten to know the city of angels.

It’s only been about a year and a half since we got the little guy from the Pasadena Humane Society, but if the first 18 months are any indicator, he may just be the best investment we’ve ever made.

Hopefully the quick rundown of these moments will inspire you to go on a few adventures of your own, or maybe even adopt a new pup if you don’t own a dog (yet).

Also, I’ve included some helpful links at the conclusion of the listicle to get you started with ideas for things to do with dogs in L.A.

Enjoy!
