Polka Dog for Target

Oliver and Baxter can both be totally unconscious, sound asleep a whole floor above me and if I even whisper “who wants to go to Polka Dog?” the two of them will come careening down the stairs tails wagging and will bark at me until we are out the door. That is how addicted my two little crackheads are to our neighborhood doggy store.  So when I heard that they were being included in Target’s “Shops at Target” line-up I was SO happy for them (watch Rob and Deb’s preview video here)! I love that they are promoting and supporting such wonderful small businesses and as a die-hard lover of Boston I had to give them a shout out!

This was Oliver in there this weekend doing his shopping…

I mean, what dog wouldn’t be psyched?


  1. Ollie is a Havachon (Havanese/Bichon)we think. He was rescued from a Havanese rescue, but it’s clear he is not 100% like Baxter. We like to say his breed is Awesome.

  2. Quite a coup and of course it is perfect for the pooches!! Bravo!

    The 2012 Artist Series featuring Designer and Paper Artist Anita Rivera…(of Castles Crowns and Cottages)is on my site, please stop by! Her work is amazing!

  3. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this line to come out in Target. I think my lab, Gus, is going to look so handsome in one of those collars, and of course he will love the treats.

  4. My husband and I will be visiting Boston this weekend. Can you recommend any great restaurants or unique neighborhoods/shops? We will definitely visit Polka Dog :-)
