Just because Give Back Week is over it doesn’t mean we are taking time off from helping our community. This low cost vaccine clinic helps people in Minneapolis get affordable vaccines and microchips for their pets. Bubbly Paws is giving volunteers $5 off coupons for self-service baths for their help. Spread the word to help dogs and cats get the preventative care they need and if you can, volunteer!
Don’t forget that Woof n’ Treat is a fundraiser for Homeward Bound Rescue, we hope to see you and your pooch out in your best costumes for lots of treats (and maybe you can show us some of your dog’s tricks)!
I hope you and your pooch have some fun and relaxing plans for the 4th of July! Just a reminder that we will be closed Thursday July 4th in observance of the holiday. We will reopen for normal hours on Friday the 5th.
While the 4th of July is a great time to celebrate and have fun outside in the beautiful summer weather it can be a stressful time for your pet. The noise and lights of fireworks can be especially scary. Take extra care to leash and secure your dog in case they get scared and try and run away. If your plans involve being outside all day use a pet safe insect repellent and sunscreen. Remember that alcohol and insect repellents for humans are unsafe for dogs. Here are more tips from the ASPCA.
Bubbly Paws carries both a pet safe bug repellent and sunscreen combination spray as well as Thundershirts which can help anxiety from fireworks. If you want a cute treat for your dog to have we have cookies, ice cream and doggie beer to treat your best buddy!
Have a fun and safe holiday!
Minnie came into Bubbly Paws recently and we were all blow away at what a sweet and loving little girl she is. She is a corgi dachshund mix and at 15 pounds she is a great size. Minnie is housetrained and can use a puppy pad if needed. She is crate trained but does not need to be as she is well-mannered while left alone. Minnie would love a home with another small dog. She loves to go for walks and is great on a leash. She is good with cats and dogs but would do best in a home with older children. Her profile can be found here.
If you think Minnie would be a great addition to your home contact Heading Home K9 Rescue!
I can’t say I’m sad to see all the snow melting but it was nice to be reminded of how pretty fresh snow can look. Roxy and Franklin both love to play in the snow so I took them on a nice walk to enjoy the sunshine and fresh snow. They loved having a snow day to sniff around and stretch their legs off leash. Roxy in particular loves to run in the snow!
I’m ready for spring to arrive but we had fun for our (hopefully!) last taste of winter!
I have been busy helping Keith plan Give Back Week and so I have been collecting a list of some of the local rescues I love and researching the rescues that were suggested to us. During my research I’ve seen photos of a ton of adoptable dogs. One night Jessica, our groomer, was looking over my shoulder at a photo of a dog that BARK rescue had just pulled from a shelter where she was at risk of being euthanized. They had put up her photo on Facebook asking for help naming her. Jessica suggested the name Violet and I wrote it on her photo. Pretty soon after we found out they chose the name Violet for her! Because we had a little part in the beginning of her new life I though we would help her find a forever home.Violet is a well-mannered, young adult English Bulldog and Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. Though she has clearly not had the best beginning in life, she shows signs she had puppies and has a poor cropping job done on her ears, she is a model citizen. She will work for treats, is kennel trained and gets along with other dogs and cats. She sleeps in her crate and rides nicely in the car and generally just likes to take it easy. Violet will need some extra care to help heal the double infection in her ears. If you are looking for a calm and friendly dog who needs a little extra love, check out Violet!
It’s been a year since I started here at Bubbly Paws and I have learned and grown so much. I have met a ton of awesome dog lovers and dog rescuers working in the Twin Cites to make it a more dog friendly place. One of the great things I’ve seen in the past year is a crew of puppies grow up. It is so much fun to see how much a puppy can grow in a year, or even a few months!
Hank is an awesome mini goldendoodle that gets groomed by Jessica. He is a fun and well-behaved puppy who is such a charmer!
Tilly is a neighbor of ours and she is a pile of personality! She is always getting into something and maybe even making a mess but she is so cute and silly, we just can’t be mad!
Hardy is an adorable mutt that gets groomed by Jessica. He is always surprising us with his quiet and collected demeanor. Hardy is truly on old soul in a puppy body!
Olive is a gorgeous Labrador retriever puppy who I get the pleasure of giving full-service baths to. She is a huge sweetheart and just started her growing up, check out how little she was her first visit to Bubbly Paws:
Dolly is a total doll! She is growing up too, just like Olive and I just can’t wait to see how big she is when she comes in next!
Franklin is comfortable and casual in this subtle floral print bandanna.
Whether getting away for a weekend in the country or vacationing at the cabin, Franklin keeps it clean while getting dirty in this Stunt Puppy dry collar, and Roundabout leash.
Keys at the ready and styled to a T, Frank is always dapper in his Newport collar and leash, by Harry Barker, day or night wear for the city life.
When feeling festive Frank dons his holiday sweater, warm in a crisp autumn evening.
All clothes are model’s own. Styling by Lill, on location at Bubbly Paws.
There are a lot of reasons why I like Lilly (even though we have never met): we have the same name, she is a little stubborn and a little silly, and has spent a long time waiting for the right family or person to find her (AND she has a lucky ear!)She is a four year old, spayed female bull terrier up for adoption through Secondhand Hounds. She has that goofy bull terrier forehead and squinty eyes that just can’t be beat. She needs a home without other dogs but is good with cats and older kids. She does get along with some other dogs but needs proper and slow introductions. Lilly is looking for someone who understands that she needs love and support to be the best dog she can. Like most bull terriers Lilly can be stubborn but is willing to listen to her person and loves to play. Once you have her love, Lilly will be your loyal and steadfast companion for life. Her profile can be viewed here. Remember that the lucky person who adopts Lilly gets a free self-service bath at Bubbly Paws!
