Paintings of dogs playing poker gaze down from the walls of Dawghouse Pub & Eatery, presiding over the plates and draft-beer pitchers that clatter onto tables. In the kitchen, chefs sculpt 8-ounce burger patties from fresh chuck and bathe tender chicken wings in eleven different sweet, savoury, and spicy sauces. Canine statues, figurines, and dolls of all shapes and sizes pepper the pub, and personal televisions on every booth assist numerous big-screens in broadcasting exciting athletic competitions and attempts to break the world record for pretending to be asleep. Bartenders distribute mugs of Molson draft beer, which fuel chatter on a newly renovated patio during the warmer months. The staccato clicks of caroming billiard balls drifts from the pool tables, and trivia games test the depth of patrons’ knowledge. In lieu of parrots raised by commercial-jingle writers, the bar hosts live bands and karaoke every week.
