From the diva dachshund who loves the limelight to the level-headed lab in need of a solid weatherproof coat, this chichi pet mecca has something for all breeds. Ridiculous guilty pleasures like doggie sneakers ($59) and pearl necklaces ($28) are shelved alongside items that will make you contemplate calling the ASPCA, such as mullet wigs ($40), rooster caps ($12) and holiday antlers ($15). Canines can assemble a full wardrobe here to rival their owners’, with apparel such as fuzzy pajamas ($39), terry-cloth bathrobes ($24), spaghetti-strap tank tops ($18) and even floral-patterned sundresses ($28). Fashionistas will get a kick out of the tongue-in-cheek plush squeaky toys ($12 each) such as “Estee Doglar” lipstick tubes, “Chewnel No. 5” perfume bottles and “Jimmy Chew” shoes—and rejoice when it keeps Fido from destroying the real thing. For felines, there’s the Kitty Korner, which stocks catnip-filled felt toys shaped like fruit, turtles and birds ($5–$10) and rhinestone tiaras ($25–$69) for when Muffin’s acting really catty.
