Find festive fun for your four-legged friends at Furry Tails Pet Shop on East Ponce! Our pets deserve a little holiday cheer, too… whether they’ve been naughty or nice. How about bully sticks or catnip-filled mice? Stuff stockings for Fido — or your feline — with top-quality treats and rough and tumble toys that squeak, rattle, roll, and jingle all the way. Better than a belly rub! — and that’s saying something. How about a fluffy new bed ( with a fashionable, washable slipcover) under the tree? Or Santa-inspired cat toys to play with on the big day? You can shop for *humans* here, too! Pet-lovers on your list will swoon over ornaments, artwork, and decor items inspired by their favorite fur babies.

Baby, it’s not that cold outside. Drop by Doggy Dogg for a hand-crafted hot dog that’ll warm you up! And we do mean hand-crafted. This is not your typical hot dog stand. Enjoy top-quality beef franks with locally baked buns and house-made sauces, mustards and relly, even kimchi, kraut, and pimento cheese — all grilled, toasted, and topped just for you. Bask in their killer playlist while you wait for your dog. Then sit by their fire pit and sip a craft beer or a local soda (they’ve got a take-a-koozie-leave-a-koozie policy). Alternative eaters note — Doggy Dogg also offers “meat of the future” substitutions and gluten-free buns. Need a gift for someone that seems to have everything? I bet they haven’t got a GIFT CARD to a local indie hot dog stand!
