I walked in to pet the dogs, ended up buying things for my cat. The prices were nice, mostly on the homemade crackers and toys. Nice store, very friendly owner.

Very friendly owner?! You made my day..... make that my week! Thanks for the very kind words about the QP. I will relay the compliment to our three store dogs. They already have big heads... but that's the breed.
