This beloved locally owned pet store in North Central Austin celebrates its 50th birthday this year! Their neat trick is not to roll over and play dead in the face of super pet markets but to specialize in personal service, specialty products such as natural flea control, and a select, well-stocked inventory. Our little darling chihuahuas sport matching he/she rhinestone collars from their dazzling array. It's a totally Austin breed of pet store, where some of us even bought our black leather studded collars back in our punk rock days.
