When you can't listen to your kid beg you for a family pooch for one more second, it's worth rolling by Citipups to, at the very least, play with some very adorable puppies. They offer a wide range of breeds, plus they also have dogs of all sizes up for adoption. Fall in love with a chubby French bulldog or fluffy mini Aussie, then stock up on food, leashes, toys, treats and a bed for the little furball. The shop delivers food and other supplies upon request, but you'll want to come back for boarding, walking and to get portraits taken of your best friend.
