Beer With Your Buddy

Beer with your buddy in minneapolis, mn Last night was the final Beer With Your Buddy of the season, and it was a great night despite the colder weather! Bubbly Paws Dog Wash has been part of this event for the past 2 summers, and we love it!  Roxy had lots of fun watching everyone make s'mores and walking from table to table begging fir treats. This might be one of her favorite events!  People often ask why we do so many events, and I always say they are fun and I love to sport anything that makes Minneapolis a dog friendly city and we like to support businesses that support local pet rescues.  Don't worry, just because Beer With Your Buddy is over for the season, that does not mean everything is over!  I am working on putting together a great event with one of our favorite Micro Brewery's.  Hopefully we will have everything worked out soon and we can give you the details!  Until then, get excited for our 5th annual Woof 'n Treat Dog Halloween Party!

Have a great day!

My first Beer with your Buddy

Last Saturday was my first time at Beer with your Buddy. I didn’t know quite what to expect and I didn’t know anyone else who was going but I found out quickly that this wouldn’t be a problem. People were so ready to talk with their comrades on the bocce court while the dogs first sniffed and milled around before everyone loosened up and the dogs and their people started the real fun of getting to know each other. I met someone who had just moved from the West coast who came alone and made a few new friends by the end of the night. I ran into Bubbly Paws customers and had a good time chatting and getting to know their dogs outside of the context of the dog spa. When the weather turned stormy we leashed our dogs and brought them inside The Nomad. It was awesome to see more than twenty leashed dogs in a small space behaving so peacefully. I got treated to a great night of Minnesota nice and it seemed like everyone else did too. I am so glad to be a part of such a welcoming and dog loving community!

Meet Lill!

minneapolis dog wash managerHi, my name is Lill and if you’ve been to Bubbly Paws recently you have probably seen me. I will be writing our blog posts for a while so I thought I would take a minute to introduce myself and tell you about why I love Bubbly Paws. I grew up in south Minneapolis and have always loved animals. My passion for dogs started in high school when I began volunteering for the Golden Valley Humane Society. Since graduating from college and retuning to Minneapolis I have been fostering and volunteering with Secondhand Hounds. In that time I adopted Franklin. I really love being able to bring Frank to work with me, he is a special dog and enjoys being the shop greeter. It means a lot to me that I can support rescues while at work. Bubbly Paws regularly hosts fundraisers for local rescues and sponsors events like Beer with your Buddy and encourages employees to do the Walk for the Animals and other dog-centric events. I also love that Bubbly Paws tries to be as green as possible from the big things like using natural laundry detergent, high-efficiency washers and driers, and locally made Topline shampoo and conditioner that we buy in bulk and dilute in-house to the little things like recycling receipts, reusing gift cards and not using bottled water. We are always looking for ways to be greener and support our local dog rescues, if you have an idea feel free to email me!
