Bad Dog Frida

So the other day I was in Madison, Wisconsin and I happened upon this really cool store called BAD DOG FRIDA. They have all sorts of rad things for dogs like me. Like these awesome dog portrait magnets painted by a local artist. They would be great for your fridge or what not. The painting above is from one of the magnets. I think it just may be a TT. Don't you? The artist also does commissions from photos of your pooch. Pretty fantastic!

The store is in this cool area of Madison where there are lots of nifty little shops and restaurants including a great local chocolate shop just two doors down. "Two doors down they're laughing and singing and eating chocolate. Two doors down they don't know that I'm around." My dad tried a sea salt caramel and a coconut chocolate. This was after he had a vegetarian (I think it was seitan) not-B LT sandwich and a great big homemade biscuit with honey at the diner across the street. I think we could spend a lifetime is this neighborhood and be VERY HAPPY.

Anyway, Frida's is a really spectacular store with a so many great things for dogs like me that my head was spinning. The owner, Carmen, is way cool too. Not only does she select great things that appeal to dogs like me, she also plans all sorts of cool events. Like right now, she is holding a pet photo contest. Where you can bring or send in your favorite dog photo. Carmen posts them in the window and people vote on them. There IS a prize involved!

Carmen told me about two of her customers that just happen to be Tibetan Terriers. First, there is Phoebe who is ANCIENT. I think she is like sixteen or something. Anytime Phoebe's parents think she might be about to give up the ghost, they put here in the car and off they go to BAD DOG FRIDAS. It's like a test or health check or something. They know if Phoebe gets excited when they arrive at BAD DOG FRIDAS, she is OK and retains a bit of her youthful zestiness. I heard tell that last time, she hurdled a few bushes in her path. YOU GO GIRL! Here's wishing you many more trips to BAD DOG FRIDAS.

I was also told about Scout. Scout is a little puppy TT and he sure is cute. He is featured on BAD DOG FRIDA's Facebook page sampling several delectable items from BAD DOG FRIDAS. I am now friend's with Scout's mom on Facebook. It's such a small TT world. It's a small, small world.

It's a world of laughter, a world or tears
It's a world of hopes, it's a world of fear
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all
