Day uses her long-time hometown of Carmel as an example of puppy progress. She says things have changed greatly, and for the better since she star ted coming to Carmel decades ago, and of course, she accepts no credit for being one of the catalysts in creating our local "dog culture." "I'm happy that there seem to be more and more dogs walking around with their people," she says. "That's one thing that's changed since I moved up here. When I first star ted coming to Carmel regularly in the late '70s, I had a hard time trying to find a place to stay with my dogs, because the hotels didn't allow them. After I moved here and went into par tnership with Denny LeVett and the Cypress Inn, I insisted that dogs be allowed. And look at Carmel now—it's wonderful!" In fact, Day and her effor ts have made Carmel one of the most notably dog-friendly cities in America, and according to the travel site Trip Advisor, one of the best in the entire world. A recent por trait of Day shows her more sil- ver than blond, but with her signature bob-hair- cut still as coiffed as ever, and her unmistakable twinkling blue eyes more alive than people half her age. Her face is full and healthy looking. And if you log onto her website, you'll hear an audio message from her that will make you feel as she is speaking to you person- Day in August 1980 at her Beverly Hills home with one of her dogs, Tip. She moved to Carmel shortly after retiring. 156 C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • W I N T E R 2 0 1 8 Photo: Trinity Mirror/Mirrorpix/Alamy Stock Photo Doris Day led an extraordinary career as both a singer, with hits such as "Que Sera Sera," and as a film actress.
