A new pet shop opened up near us, and I got to visit it this week! My human found out about it on the Facebook group for her neighborhood, and she thought it would be fun to take me there. And it was!
It’s pretty spacious, and there are a lot of boutique-style things for both dogs and cats. You can get a little view of it in this photo.
Sorry to the dogs, but this hydrant isn’t for sale! I think it’s a photo prop for customers.
There was lots of room to explore! I think they have only been open a little over a month. Some people came in, but I was the only pet on a leash while we were there.
Most of the layout was pretty simple, but they did decorate with some really cute ceramic pets throughout the store. My human loved them!
I also discovered a new treat: cod skin sticks! That was fun. My human bought this one for me.
And here I am, giving the store owner a high five for a job well done! It turned out that he used to work at one of the other stores I go to, and he remembered me!

What a fun visit to a new store. It looks like a great place and one that you will definitely be returning to visit. A nice bonus to greet an old friend too.

What a fantastic visit! You’re so popular in your neighborhood!
What a nice store! There are never enough pet shops because you can always discover something new that the others don’t have…and you want! I am glad you scored the cod skin stick. Humans are good for something after all! MOL
That store looks awesome, Summer. The TOYS alone … wowzers!
The new store looks like a winner. “you gnaw it, you buy it” meant you got a tasty treat stick.

A new store to visit is really a cool happening for you.
The owner remembered a favorite customer didn’t he?
Did you have “fish breath” after that cod skin treat?

Whoa! Cool store. A neighbor of TW is looking to open a cat cafe/store in town. She has an online store already. We can’t wait.

How cool that you got to visit a new pet store!
Looks like they have cool stuff too .
Mum also liked the ceramic dog, but would be really excited if it was a cat 😉
You really do get on well with people 🙂

What a fun adventure for you, Summer. Maybe you’ll get to go back again.
Oh Summer, even though the hydrant’s not for sale I can’t help wondering if any desperate canines, umm, used it while shopping. That’s awesome that the shopkeeper remembered you from previously. Now I’ve gotta get to work on getting dad to grab me some of them there cod skin sticks. Those sound tantalizing! Have yourself a fantastic weekend!
