Linden Hills Woofstock 2013


Bubbly Paws Dog Wash and Pampered Pooch Playground are proud to be the PRESENTING sponsors of the Linden Hills Woofstock.  We have sponsored this great dog event for the past 5 years and this year will be even better!  Stop back soon to see what great events we have planned at our booths this year!  For more information on Woofstock, click here.

Christmas Tree Shopping

This morning, Trycia, Roxy and I went to the dog wash for about 3 hours to help out, and then it was time to go Christmas Tree shopping!   We went to the Rangers Tree Lot in the Linden Hills area.  We have gone there for the past 4 years and always get great service.  After walking through the rows of trees, we found one we liked.  Oh, and Roxy received a few dog treats from the staff!  Hope everyone is gearing up for the holidays!



A fun day at Woofstock!

This past Saturday was one of my favorite dog events of the year... Linden Hills Woofstock!  Everyone always asks why it is my favorite event, and it is because we live in the Linden Hills area and it is our way of giving back to the community in which we live!  Both our businesses have so much in common with those of Linden Hills Businesses (we are small, local, community minded and try hard to be as green as possible).  For the past 4 years Pampered Pooch Playground has been a presenting sponsor, and Bubbly Paws has been a sponsor for the past 2 years.   All the products that we had for sale were either made by a local company or a green product! People that stopped out got to have fun in the Photo Booth and sample the doggy beer.  Jessica, our groomer at Bubbly Paws left the booth for a few minutes to grab something to eat, and her fan club must have stopped out!  In a 10 minute period, about 3 people were talking about how much they love her grooming style, and how we groom dogs at Bubbly Paws.  I really enjoyed getting this type of feedback!  We never  wanted to groom a bunch of dogs each day, but focus more on the quality of the groom and the stress free setting!

Have a great day!


Dog Friendly Patio's

Patio season is here and there is nothing more fun that taking you pooch to dinner and drinks. We often take Roxy out to dinner with us and people always ask where some of the best places to go are....  We have started to compile a list of dog friendly patios around the Twin Cities, please feel free to comment with anything we have missed as this is a work in progress. --- ROXY APPROVED PATIO'S ---

Christmas Tree Shopping

Linden Hills Chrstmas Tree LotWe love taking Roxy with us everywhere we go, and when the weather starts getting colder, we are more limited with the locations she can go.... Today we took her to the Linden Hills Christmas tree lot.  She loved walking up and down the rows of trees and helped us to pick out the perfect tree for our house.  This is the 3rd year we have gone to this lot (right across from Turtle Bread).  On a side note, the same construction company that built the dog wash, also remodeled Turtle Bread, and we had a few of our meetings there when the construction was going on.  I might note, that they have an amazing grilled cheese! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!



Out to dinner in Linden Hills

Minneapolis, MN dog spaWe live in the Linden Hills area and absolutely love going out to eat in our neighborhood.  Since we own 2 small businesses, we really try to support other small businesses!  Yesterday was my birthday and we really wanted to try the new restaurant that opened, Tilia.  We were quickly greeted at the door by the owners dog, Gnat.  What a sweet dog that LOVES attention!  This restaurant is now one of my favorite places to eat in the Twin Cities!  Stop on in and say hi to Gnat and grab a cold beer (they have a bunch of microbrews on tap, I strongly suggest "Sweet Child of Vine", by Fulton Brewing). Have a great night!
