There's a very groovy pet store in our neighborhood that sells only the most expensive dog foods and has cute little outfits, and I'm talking dresses, for your pug/Boston terrier/whatever. All the employees are hopelessly cool and fawn over the Fifis and Boopsies that prance in, and refer to their two-legged customers as "darling" and "sweetie."
Not being the kind of dog owner who would clothe their dog in anything other than a collar and (current) tags, and not being the "sweetie" type, either, I'm really not interested in spending my time or money in a place like that. Fortunately for Rosey and Walker, we have Green Dog Pet Supply in the neighborhood.
Owned by nice folks who support neighborhood causes, this place has charmed me with its sincerity while not being overly earnest. Plus they carry the food we feed our guys and the bags we need to pick up after them. It's also a great place to get advice, and if you'd like them to carry a product (or order one) they'll go out of their way to help you out. And Rosey especially appreciates not feeling pressured to buy the latest fashions.
