Jessie was a gift. The children ran down the staircase on Christmas morning and were delighted to find a tan and cream colored ball of fluff yelping at them softly from under the tree. The squeals of joy echoed throughout the house and Christmas day was indeed merry and bright.

Brandy the Cat. Cats, and for that matter, dogs, walk all over your house and have this pesky habit of licking their paws. So, what gets on them gets in their mouths. What gets in their mouths gets in th


Welcome back to A Dog’s Tale! This week we feature Emi. When Emi came into our store with her Dad, we were immediately smitten with this girl. She’s a determined little dachshund who impressed us with her feisty spirit. When she looked at us, it was as if she was saying, “What do you want? Can’t you see I’m shopping?”. A dog with real character! So of course we had to learn more about her. And you will too. Please, take a moment to enjoy… A Dog’s Tale…with Emi What is your pet’s full name?
