You’d think with Macy’s across the street from our hotel, I might have some great fashion finds, huh?
Nope. We only shopped in two small storefronts. We knew we had time to kill on our way to the reservations we didn’t keep Friday night, so there was no hesitation when we spotted Doggie Style. I should mention that both of my companions are dog-mas too; one has the dapper Sarge, an airedale, or King of the Terriers to the rest of you, while the other is mother to Elwood, a dashing hound mix.
(The tag line at the top of their logo is “they bark, we listen”.)
First up are the not-pictured Pumpkin Crunchers. They aren’t pictured because I wouldn’t have gotten photos of anything other than Sissy’s nose, feet, etc. had the Crunchers left their nearly hidden location on the treat table. She is particularly MAD for them. Gretchen likes them quite well, but not to the point her nutty sister CRAVES them.
(Why yes, that is the DIVA herself keeping any eye on the cookies!) Of course, the big orange one is for Sis, and the cool margarita is for Gretchen. Locally, I have some trouble finding fancy cookies free of Sissy’s allergens, so I had to snag ’em!
There were harnesses, collars, and even non-doggy items. My partners in crime bought fun plush toys for their fur-kids, and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. We’re somewhat seriously considering looking into their franchise opportunities!
When we ditched our reservations in favor of Zavino, we had time to kill. There was a soap shop across the street, so we wandered in, having no idea that we’d almost miss our seating because we couldn’t stop shopping at Duross and Langel.
I went a little crazy. There’s a “tub toy” fire truck (really a ladder truck, if you must know) for the Chief (aka: Knight), dry shampoo for the fur-girls, and the rest is MINE. ALL. MINE. Two exfoliating soaps, cuticle cream and some pink grapefruit sugar scrub that makes me weak in the knees.
You need to see this label. A coat freshener that also repells bugs?! Do I need to tell you that THREE containers came back to VA? Elwood, Sarge, Sissy and Gretchen will all be smelling a little sweeter now. Of course, I’ll report back on what we all think of the product.
(Yes, there’s ground corn meal in there, so both girls will be brushed outside, in the front yard, so Sis can’t ingest it. Fingers and paws crossed, but if it is problematic, at least I know it can go live with Elwood or Sarge.)
Does anyone else use a dry shampoo on pets?
