Best Pet Gear


A furry friend's first shopping spree in Pet-Tique isn't a done deal until a snout-to-snout greeting is given by one of the shop's three mascots: Nemo, Chloe, and Emma. The perky, persistent pugs wouldn't have it any other way. Nor would the pooches' owners, Lawrence and Kevin, who've stocked their shop with designer collars, tags, carriers, and sweaters. They've lined the boutique's bookshelves with handy how-to guides like Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies and Cocker Spaniels: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual. But don't expect to find the ho-hum Purina and 9Lives food lines in the pantry. These guys carry 23 upscale, organic brands, from Chicken Soup and Natural Balance to Eukanuba and Solid Gold.
