Walking into a large pet warehouse is rather like stepping into a stationery shop or a fabulous hardware emporium whereby you just can’t help yourself and become powerless to that exquisite rush of consumerism that travels from your tippy toes all the way up to your devouring eyeballs….it can be a life changing moment for some where lugging home the 25kg pack of dry food on your shoulder as you try and walk the dog seemed like a good idea at the time. Warehouse is the operative word too, as it can be wearing on your own house when you come home with the new beds, toys and designer outfits and dogs too for that matter after their wax and pedicure on the way out and trip on the sixty five toys your dog already has as you walk in the front door and try and find space for all the rest. The disemboweled squeaky toys on the floor a testimony to former glory and happy times….
Dogs Inner City went roaming inner city on Sunday to discover just what one of our inner western pet warehouses had to offer. Choice is what we found…choice, choice and more choice…big things, little things, soft things, edible things and squeaky things….lots of things…..for dogs, cats and other little critters….
So much choice…
It’s called Pet O and we think the O stands for ‘Ohhh my gosh’ so many things to look at….we bought chicken necks and some liver treats and went window shopping to see what else they had….
Diney, piggy or T Rex?
I’ve always loved that soft spot behind Miss Piggy’s ears…
Think I need a new soft beddie…
Pet O offer all the usual consumerables, grooming, training and friendly staff to answer your questions….
Scout opted out of the wax, pedicure and blow dry but we were delighted to meet our ex Prime Minister Julia Gillard on the way out….
Just how many Julia’s are there?….
And in case you feel there might be a little bias, Tony Abbott Leader of the Opposition will be arriving in about three weeks….and you never know … perhaps a certain K Rudd our Prime Minister (second time round) shortly after….
You can find Pet O and your very own Julia or Tony or squeaky toy to donate to your favourite pet rescue at 1A The Crescent Annandale 2038 and their website here.
Adios and see you on the streets….
