WELCOME TO THE DOODLE SPOT –
Dolittle’s – a new breed of pet store. A “Golden Hidden Treasure” here in the Lowcountry…
THE DENTAL CHEW HUNT –
Dental chews in our house are a serious item. Harley has us trained when it comes to dispersement. He even dictates the hour.
Again, it’s a “serious item” in our house.
To be without this little minty stick of goodness is like flirting with danger.
On those rare occasions when the jar is empty, I go to my reserve bag.
Not true a few days ago. The last bag I used WAS my reserve bag. #sweetbabyJesus
GRAB THE KEYS –
Dental chews, I usually order online.
Sometimes when I’m on the other side of town (where we used to live), I’ll pick it up from one of our favorite hangouts. Haven’t shopped locally in the downtown area yet. #untilnow
I laugh at myself as I grab the car keys, wallet and leashes! You guessed it – #gottagogottago
Sitting in the driveway, I try to figure out where to go. I need something close by. It’s after 5pm so I use Yelp. Turns out, I’m less than 4 miles from a pet store called “Dolittle’s.” – I start driving.
Tucked away in a small shopping center, Dolittle’s reminds me of an ole’ country store…
It’s jam packed with a little bit of this and that for your pet. I spin from left to right because EVERYTHING is at your fingertips.
Rustic decor like whiskey barrels, old coffee tables, and laundry wash tubs are stacked or filled with commodities us conscientious pet parents care about. #loveit
Products are grouped not only by vendor but also by category. Each “merchanidise neighborhood” has toys and puzzles on the floor to occupy your four legged friend while you browse, touch, smell and feel.
MISSION STATEMENT –
To help improve the relationship between pets and people.
I gravitate towards any type of business with a well thought out mission statement. A mission statement can shape how an organization does business.
Dolittle’s prides themselves on hiring (as often as possible) pet professionals like vet techs, vet students, and dog trainers to work at their store. #brilliant
Thoughtful, educated, pet loving people are destined to yield excellent customer service results…
THEIR FOODS –
The store is so tiny, they narrow the food selections to the very best. No by-products and no celebrity endorsements. Just whole ingredients, where meat is a priority and nothing is sourced from China.
I looked at it all, took as long as I wanted while the Boys played with the toys and puzzles.
We were there for at least an hour. Dental chews, baked cheese puffs, Omega 3 oil, and who knows what else went into my recyclable shopping bag.
I was so impressed with the total pet package, I have since cancelled my online subscription so I can support this doodletastic local business and hang out with some new like-minded friends…
The only thing missing is a wine bar! #hellosomebody
Weekends – take your pleasure seriously ❤️
