DogWashTLV

From a self-service dog wash to an official “Dogs of Tel Aviv” Facebook Page, one thing is clear: Tel Aviv loves dogs!

Every dog owner knows that having a dog is like having a baby; you need to watch them, feed them, and clean them. However, when it comes to dog owners cleaning their dogs, it is no where near the Johnson’s baby commercials.

Dog washing is often the biggest chore and pain in the you-know-what; from getting your dog into the bathtub, to knowing which shampoo and conditioner to use and when. From my personal experience with a dog,  he puts up a good fight to avoid having a bath – he knows when it’s bath time, and promptly retreats to under the kitchen table to avoid it. Smart dog!

By the time I finally get him in the bath, its a struggle to wash him while he is planning an escape. So I give up, he runs out of the tub, and sprays me with water on his way out. Not enjoyable, but thankfully, Tel Aviv: Dog Wash TLV has a better way of doing things. Dog owners can walk into the store and shower their dogs right there, without any escaping. Tel Aviv might be the perfect place for me and my dog. I’m now considering the move!

Of course, the Tel Aviv beach, which stretches over 10km along the Mediterranean is a firm favorite. Divided into over ten individual beaches, each of Tel Aviv’s beaches has its own character and crowd, from the Tzur Beach in the far north of the city which is a favorite with locals and relatively quiet by urban standards, to the central stretch of beaches – Gordon, Frishman, Bograshov, and Dolphinarium Beaches which are always busy, to the Hilton Beach which attracts a gay crowd, or the beaches further south which attract hipsters and locals from Jaffa. Read more about the Tel Aviv Beach in our dedicated article.

Dolphin’s Beach, Eilat:

The American band was scheduled to play in Israel four years ago, when they cancelled their show last minute.

It was only last night, when the Pixies performed their very first show at the Rock N’ Roller Festival in Israel.

The Pixies were said to have rocked out for 33 consecutive songs.

Audience members describe the band to be focused throughout the whole show, and never once did they stop to say hello or thank you. Now that’s determination!

The Pixies opened the show with their song “Bone” and finished with their signature hit “Where is My Mind.”

Check out a clip of the Pixies in Israel below:
