Do you love dogs? We sure do. So does Laurie Ruttenberg – Owner and President of Lucky Dog Resort in Middletown, RI, a new and unique place for dogs to hang while their owners go a gallavantin’! Laurie joins Buck and Helena today to talk about her luxury resort for dogs, how she got started, and the awesomeness that comes from watching a basset hound escort his bride/momma down the aisle. Plus, we dine & dish about the Boathouse, in Tiverton. Listen in!

Show Notes & Links:


THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode Island America’s favorite city by the sea.

With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences in segments like Dine & Dish, Adventure Island, and Shop Newport.

blackandwhiteBuck and Helena are a couple of old punks who survived what they call “the toddler years” (plus a few extra). As they slowly regain their sanity, this smart and silly couple are once again venturing out into the world to get their party on. They may be a bit slower these days, but they are also a lot wiser. And honestly, a lot more fun. Read more about your hosts.

While That Newport Show features a lot of what Newport has to offer both visitors and residents, the essence of show is about two grown-ups who really have no business being grown-ups, and the things they get up to in Newport – as well as at home on their small New England horse farm.

Every Thursday the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen on iTunesGooglePlayStitcher Radio, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
