Fashion Friday: Kayla Gets a New Dog Coat

Dachshunds are low riders, which means they need good chest and belly coverage with abrasion-resistance.  And of course, they are long and narrow, which poses challenges in the fitting room.  Kayla was in recently shopping for coats (well, she was actually shopping for treats and humored us on the coats), and provided a chance to […]

Elevated Dining Style

We’re fans of These Creatures, a small company in Seattle that designs and handcrafts steel diners for pets (and leash/coat hooks, and some other handy things like charging docks).  Their designs are refreshing.  No paw prints or bones here; instead, warblers and squirrels and goldfish, or nicely rendered images of popular dog breeds.  Or in […]

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 […]

Twofer Tuesday: Hungry Dog Value Pack

If you have a dog, you probably go through chews like crazy.  It’s not cheap.  That’s why we like Merrick’s Hungry Dog Super Value Pack .  It’s a 2 pounder of quality mixed chew misfits, all US, all natural, but either misshapen or undersized so they don’t quite make it to headline on their own.   Today’s […]

Twofer Tuesday: Dog Toys!

We like bargains so we figure you probably do too, right?  Tuesdays are great days for special deals….they are kind of like the Jan Brady of weekdays, perfectly nice but no one seems to make a fuss about them. Let’s Tuesday a fun day.  Buy one dog toy, get another (of less or equal value) […]

How to Beat the Heat, Part 1

Here’s Zip geared up for a hot summer commute into work.  We walk in from the South End, so it’s about 30 minutes at pug pace to get to the store on Newbury Street.  That’s too long without packing water, at a minimum.  Today we’re trying out the summer gear:  Ruffwear‘s Swamp Cooler Jacket, and […]
