  • Welcome to My Shit Show. Well, it’s not always a shit show, but it IS always very interesting. Scenes would include: Cleaning up dog pee with one hand while eating pizza with the other and avoiding cross-contamination. Catching stray kittens. Providing necessities to our colorful local homeless population (I love them). Hosting 200 wedding guests flash-mob style in the middle of the street. Silently thwarting children’s shenanigans with only a look. Impromptu dance parties with visitors during thunderstorms. Projectile cat diarrhea. That one time a woman went into labor on my sofa during a festival. Catching a peacock with the cops. Water gun fights. Staff relationship drama. Customer relationship drama. A shoulder to cry on when experiencing loss. Gigantic piles of donations for our local humane society. Keeping tabs on our regulars and making sure they are alive and well. Second breakfast, first lunch, second lunch, third lunch, first dinner and snacks in between. (We are big eaters). Chihuahuas driving Chihuahua-sized Rolls Royces. When the IRS finally decides to reconcile that $83 charge that I paid six years ago. I somehow seem to plan a lot of oddball weddings. Oh, and we sell pet supplies. Almost forgot that. It’s an interesting life! — Caroline G., Hendersonville, NC

  • The Great Dog Treat Baking Championship. — Jennifer B., North Ridgeville, OH
  • Wild Chicago Pets. — Jabré W., Chicago, IL
  • When our dog Foster was our shop dog in our original shop, the show would definitely have been called Life with Foster. He had a big personality and quite the fan base at the shop. He’s dearly missed. — Jeff J., St Louis, MO
  • Time Flies When You’re Crazy. — Kris M., Fort Smith, AR
  • Cheers for Pups. Our whole concept is built around the concept of “Everyone knows your name.” Customers know they can come in and spend anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour just talking shop, about life, sports, just about anything. We try to know every customer and their pet by name, and by their regular favorites. We even have a customer package/mail drop-off for a certain group of original customers, our OG ladies if you will. They refer to themselves as the crew and they often leave gifts for each other here at the store if they can’t meet up. Our retention rate is over 98% due to the small, quaint and friendly atmosphere, the complete transparency and the fact that I sacrifice possible income by only carrying healthy products I believe in. I could sell certain brands and add to my income, but I refuse to bend on my principle of only selling the healthiest products and maintaining the holistic part of “euPAWRia, Your Holistic Pet Center.” — Brett F., Owego, NY

  • The Helpful Ladies at the Pet Store. That is what most of Muskego knows us as. We will get customers who have been recommended to come in and talk with the helpful ladies at the pet store (and we all wear name tags). I guess it’s great that our customers think we all are helpful. — Paula G., Muskego, WI
  • Crazy Busy Dogs. — Darrel D., Lithia, FL
  • Sunshine State Pets. — Amber S., Mulberry, FL
  • Who’s in Gig’s Kitchen? — Stephanie R., Chadds Ford, PA
  • 1000 Bird Life. — Sal, Webster, NY
  • Survivor: Tourists vs. Locals. Our locals have a strange disdain for the tourists, and the interaction in the store is hilarious. A lot of eye rolls and under-the-breath murmuring. We love them all of course. — Scott T., Galveston, TX
  • Lifestyles of the Potentially Rich and Nearly Famous. I think the famous part is coming after I wear my Curbside Cupid outfit over Valentine’s Weekend. It has so much tulle on the skirt, and the wings are huge. Definitely going to be social media fodder for weeks! — Pattie Z., Charlottesville, VA
  • Happy Daze. — Ron K., Westerville, OH
  • Dream Big. — Lisa K., Stroudsburg, PA
  • The Barkery Championship. Just last week, I was joking with my general manager that I was pitching an idea to the Food Network & Animal Planet about our dog bakery. I told her it would bring together dog bakeries from across the country to compete and would highlight different rescues and their dogs each week as judges, along with maybe Duff Goldman and Buddy Valastro. Who doesn’t love cake and dogs? Seriously, if you know how to pitch this idea, let’s do it. — Teresa H., Ashburn, VA
  • Pet Store Foster Fails! — Helen B., Chester, MD
  • Watch It Wiggle. — Cindy S., Leesburg, VA
