Ruff-Ing It

Pamper your pooch with these dog-tastic finds!

OFF THE CHAIN:  Unleashed Indoor Dog Parks just might be the greatest thing since Snausages.  In addition to 25,000 square feet of indoor off-leash play space, this one-of-a-kind pooch palace also offers grooming services, daycare, a shop stocked with toys, food and treats and – wait for it – a café where doggie mommies and daddies can buy a latte and a specialty sandwich.  Now that’s worth barking about!  All this fur-family fun is yours for just $7.50 per dog, per day (additional dogs receive a discounted rate).  For more information and to get your paws on the necessary registration forms, click on, call 214-388-0701 or stop by 5151 Samuell Boulevard in Dallas.

SHINY COATS:  Vhea’s LaundroMutt is another pooch-perfect place we’re panting about.  This fully-equipped self-serve grooming shop features Espree shampoos and conditioners for that just-washed glow, full-service grooming and holistic products for dogs and cats.  In the words of owner Vhea Cannon, “It is my passion to make wellness living with pets an everyday thing - not a mystery.  It's not just about a bath or a groom, but taking care of your pet from the inside out."  Visit Vhea’s LaundroMutt at 718 N. Buckner Ave., #211 in Dallas (next to Gold’s Gym) or click for more information.

FAMOUS FUR BABIES:  Finally, while Fido’s frolicking at the park or Fifi’s getting her weekly fluff, why not flip through Kinky’s Celebrity Pet Files?  This new book from entertainer, politician and all-around cool guy Kinky Friedman features animal anecdotes from the likes of Johnny Cash, Bill Clinton and Willie Nelson.  Find your copy on Amazon for $16.47.  Happy Tails to You!
