Dog Lovers' Event -- 5/11 at 7pm
Our hotly anticipated Dog Lovers’ Event is this Thursday night, May 11th, at 7pm. In store and outdoors on the patio!
Annie Hartnett and Jenna Blum won't be able to join us, but we're happy to welcome back E.B. Bartels, author of Good Grief: On Loving Pets, Here and Hereafter, for a conversation about dogs with Karen Fine. The Other Family Doctor: A Veterinarian Explores What Animals Can Teach Us About Love, Life, and Morality is a New York Times bestseller and has been called “All Creatures Great and Small meets Being Mortal.”
We are selling homemade dog treats and toys made by kids at Service Stars for $5 each, with all proceeds going to MSPCA-Angell.
Dogs ARE welcome to this event- feel free to swing by and say hi, take a photo of your pup in one of our photobooths, listen to some dog talk, check out the books, decide between chicken and sweet potato dog treats, and more!
Of course, if your canine buddy doesn’t like a crowd, we'll have our photobooths up all week so swing by another time.
An unexpected, poignant, and personal account of loving and losing pets, exploring the singular bonds we have with our companion animals, and how to grieve them once they’ve passed.
