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.

These sweet photos show how adoptables looked before and after they were found a loving home. As you can clearly see, these animals are so happy after being settled in with their loving parents. Adopt, don’t shop!

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! After going on the bus plenty of times with her dad to visit the dog park, she decided to start traveling to the park on her own (Dad follows a few buses behind her and they travel back home together). What a smart pup!

WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN’: Beat the Cold Weather Blues

winterchill

Whether you’re in Hawaii or in the East Coast’s Snowpacalpse, it’s COLD! Remember, you’re not the only one that needs to keep warm in the winter – your pup does too! Pups are just as sensitive to the weather as we are (if not more!). Don’t let the cool weather limit Bowser’s activity – go out there and play!

Keep your pup warm in that brisk weather with a fleece jacket or puffer vest! A fleece jacket that’s water resistant has a dual purpose – not only will it keep your dog nice and warm, but the outer shell is made with nylon – perfect for those walks in the rain! If your baby needs warmth over water-resistantance, then our best-seller fleece pullover will do the trick. It comes in an array of colors and is easy to pull on and take off, making it perfect if you need it on in a pinch! If you’re looking more for basic rainwear, then the reversible raincoat is ideal. Because it’s reversible, it’s basically like two raincoats in one! It’s hooded, making it the ultimate cover-up for rainy days. Another great addition to your pup’s winter wardrobe? Boots! Our Ruffwear Summit Trex Boots protect against salt or other snowmelt chemicals as well as protect against extreme temperatures. These boots keep moisture out of the paws and have great traction. It’s a win-win!

Another way to stay warm? Beds and blankets of course! Whether it be a super comfy throw, a cave bed (this could also work as an awesome hide-and-seek bed!) or a roll-up bed for comfort on the go, any type of soft and warm fabric is perfect for the cool weather!

Just because it’s cold and snowy out shouldn’t limit your fun outside. Now that you know how to keep warm, it’s time to go out and play! Check out the rest of our Winter Essentials Collection online or at any of our Muttropolis stores.
