It’s been a tough handful of weeks, but as we ready ourselves to a full day of grazing and lazing with some of our best friends this Thanksgiving holiday, we know there’s so much to be thankful for.

Thrown in with our recent rocky road has been a lot of good, too – our warm and cozy home, family (and friends we consider to be so), a busy Shop season, Christmas tunes (for me), bourbon (for him), and three very healthy, very hairy four-legged kiddos (to name just a few).

Also, cats in paper hats. That’s really (funny) good.

Of course, thank you for reading, leaving us notes and inspiring us daily. Your drop-ins and support make our world go ’round – really! And a million thank yous for your sweet comments, emails, texts and tweets spurred from Monday’s brain purge. You all made us smile, and it gave us fuzzy feelings.

We wish you a merry, happy day!


Thanksgiving is just a couple days away (are you ready?), followed up by the ca-raziness that is Black Friday. (The morning news reported early birds in line already. For Friday. Not kidding.) But this year, Small Business Saturday falls over the holiday weekend, and quickly behind SBS is Cyber Monday.

Good gracious.

While you won’t find us up before the sun after a day long turkey induced laze-fest (although we make no promises for staying click-free on Cyber Monday), our ears did perk up for Small Business Saturday, because, we are one! And, you know, we love the little guys.

So to celebrate, we’re offering 10% off gift certificates in The Pet Shop for the whole long weekend! Three cheers for supporting small businesses!

Starting Friday November 23rd, use promo code SBS10 for 10% off all gift certificate orders. And because we love the whole holiday hoopla as much as the next guy, this sale runs through Cyber Monday, November 26th!

Bookmark the Shop certificates right here, and order as early as 12 AM this Friday. Now that‘s the best (most thoughtful, sweetest and unique-gift-giving) way to be an early bird, don’t you think?
