WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN: Toys for Any Pup!

ToySale

Toys are to dogs what makeup is to women: fun and exciting! Whether it be a tough toy, a sassy one or a basic ball, toys not only are fun, but make dogs happy. Because we’re big toy fans, we’ve decided to give you one week of special toy savings: save 30% on 3+ toys from Tuesday, 2/24 to Monday, 3/2!

What cool toys can you save on? We have a plethora of toys for any kind of dog! For the smart dog, we have awesome interactive toys that involve treats like the IQ Treat Ball and the Tornado. Not only do these toys stimulate your dog’s brain, but since you put treats inside, Bowser gets a yummy reward! For the dog that loves to snuggle up to their toys, we have tons of plush toys featuring familiar looking friends like Lamb Chop and soft, yet super squeaky toys like the stuffing-free cat. For the ones that prefer a toy that has a dual purpose (a toy AND something that brings the LOLs), funny toys are a perfect fit, like the Humunga Stache or the Humunga Chomp. Got a power chewer? Extra tough toys like the Tuffies Tug of War toy and the Orbee Ball are ideal!

This is just a taste of the type of toys we have. We also have toys for pups big and small, rubber lovers, or dogs that love to play fetch, too! To check out the rest of our toy collection and save 30% on 3+ toys through Monday, 3/2, check out our website or our three Southern California locations.

I SEE SPOT: Leapin’ Leopards Have Arrived at Muttropolis

ISeeSpot

If someone told us they hated leopard print, we’d think they were seriously lying – probably because we love leopard print so much! To celebrate this love of leopard, we’ve created a special collection dedicated to leopard lovers. From comfy sweaters to stylish carriers, we’ve got everything you need to prepare for any Safari!

rIMG_5423Is there such a thing as too much leopard? Nope, especially when it comes to apparel! Dress up for a night on the town in a leopard and tulle dress or stay comfy and classic in a fleece pullover – either way you’ll be looking your finest!

If you’re more of the subtle type, but still want to look stylish on your daily walks, we recommend the leopard velvet collar and leash. The red webbing adds a touch of sass and complements the leopard perfectly! For those days when the sun is out, have no fear – Doggles not only keep your pup’s eyes away from the sun, but the leopard print makes staying safe fashionable.

Don’t think we forgot about everyone’s favorite item – toys! If your pup is into squeakers galore, then they’ll love the giant leopard snake toy – this thing is 3 feetrIMG_5568 long! For the fashionistas in the building, you can turn into Carrie “Bark”shaw with our adorable leopard-print Manolo “Bark”nik shoe toy! All the toys in this collection are the perfect mix of soft and stylish.

To take the Leopard Collection up a notch, we’ve added some adorable items that benefit not only your pup, but you too! If you tote lil’ Bowser around, then the leopard patent leather Haylee carrier is a must. Not only does it give you an easy way to bring your pup everywhere, but it’s so cute that you could you it as an everyday bag! Don’t forget to add a touch of leopard pizazz to your house, whether it be with a feisty bed or a contemporary dog bowl. A little leopard goes a long way!

If you’re love leopard as much as we do, then you are going to love our Leopard Collection! Check out the rest of the Collection online or stop by one of our three Southern California locations to see it for yourself.

The 3 Surprising Ways ‘Pet Parents’ are Treating their Pets Like Humans

We’ve always said dogs are just like humans – why not treat your pup like a human? More and more pet parents are going above and beyond for their pups, and we think it’s great. What are these three surprising ways? First, they are purchasing “people quality” food (we’ve been doing this for years at Muttropolis!), second, they are securing the best doggie care (of course!) and last, they style and frequently groom their pets (no brainer!). Clearly the Huffington Post hasn’t met Muttropolis yet!

Daily Treat: Boston Terrier Nurses Orphaned Kittens

This is truly amazing. A Boston Terrier, Memory, decided to play the role of “mom” to 4 orphaned kittens that were found out in the cold. Although Memory was not pregnant, she was able to produce milk for the kittens. What makes this story sweeter? Once the kittens were nourished from Memory’s milk and moved to solid food, three of the four were able to be adopted out to happy families, while keeping one for Memory to nurture.

Canine Commuter Raises Eyebrows on Seattle Bus

This may be our favorite story from the past few weeks. 2-year old black lab Eclipse is not only the cutest lil’ thing, but she is a true city commuter!
