Best New Reason (as if you needed another) to go to Yappier Hours at Liberty Hotel

If you live in Boston with your best pal & haven’t experienced ‘YH’ (Yappier Hour) at the Liberty Hotel, well we’ve just come up with the best new reason to get down there.  Starting this week, we’ll be there every Wednesday as the Liberty’s official YH partner.  Which means we get to supply the num-nums […]

Tick Talk with Back Bay Vet

In February, Zippy suddenly started walking very, very slowly & with obvious stiffness.  I took him right over to our friends at Back Bay Vet for tests, and it turns out he had Erhlichia, a tick-borne bacterial infection that can cause arthritis-like symptoms.  I was shocked; it had been a cold winter and there was snow […]

Our Portland Store Getting Spiffier

  We’ve always loved the eccentric, colorful, fun feel in Fetch, our Portland store.  But every store, after years of busy-ness, needs a scrub-up and some fresh paint.  Seeing as April is Fetch’s 13th anniversary, we thought it would be the perfect time to close that store for a week, remodel, and re-open withgleaming floors, and […]

Got Free Pet Food? Enter our Free Pet Food Sweeps!

  You might say I got into the world of pet supplies through the kitchen door.  I grew up in restaurants, and eventually started one of my own with a couple of friends.  That cemented a fondness for tasty, healthy food and local independent business.  Which naturally led to opening Fetch in 2000, believing in […]
