This morning, Trycia, Roxy and I went to the dog wash for about 3 hours to help out, and then it was time to go Christmas Tree shopping! We went to the Rangers Tree Lot in the Linden Hills area. We have gone there for the past 4 years and always get great service. After walking through the rows of trees, we found one we liked. Oh, and Roxy received a few dog treats from the staff! Hope everyone is gearing up for the holidays!
This past Saturday was one of my favorite dog events of the year… Linden Hills Woofstock! Everyone always asks why it is my favorite event, and it is because we live in the Linden Hills area and it is our way of giving back to the community in which we live! Both our businesses have so much in common with those of Linden Hills Businesses (we are small, local, community minded and try hard to be as green as possible). For the past 4 years Pampered Pooch Playground has been a presenting sponsor, and Bubbly Paws has been a sponsor for the past 2 years. All the products that we had for sale were either made by a local company or a green product! People that stopped out got to have fun in the Photo Booth and sample the doggy beer. Jessica, our groomer at Bubbly Paws left the booth for a few minutes to grab something to eat, and her fan club must have stopped out! In a 10 minute period, about 3 people were talking about how much they love her grooming style, and how we groom dogs at Bubbly Paws. I really enjoyed getting this type of feedback! We never wanted to groom a bunch of dogs each day, but focus more on the quality of the groom and the stress free setting!
Have a great day!
Patio season is here and there is nothing more fun that taking you pooch to dinner and drinks. We often take Roxy out to dinner with us and people always ask where some of the best places to go are…. We have started to compile a list of dog friendly patios around the Twin Cities, please feel free to comment with anything we have missed as this is a work in progress.
