The Holidays are upon us! Frazier Park Holiday Faire!

Exciting news, beginning Dec.2nd, L4P will be open on Sundays from 12-4 all of December! 

Also, Lola 4 Pets will have a booth at the December 1st Holiday Faire in Frazier Park. It's going to be a blast and I expect that everyone on the mountain will come out for a good time. The Faire starts around 10am and goes until 7pm! The parade is at 4pm so make sure to be there for that! So much fun!

L4P will have lots of stuff for your pets like toys and treats. This is my first time doing this so I'm a little nervous but I think it will be great. 

The store in PMC will be open as usual this Saturday (10-4) so you can still buy what you need, but I'm taking a bunch of holiday stuff down to the festival so if you are Xmas shopping you may just need to see me in FP... or on Sunday.

Before you slice another piece of pie...

Over-eating whether it's you or your pets on Thanksgiving!

Los Angeles Animal Services Important Pet Alert
Over-eating during Thanksgiving can be serious for pets too!

Thanksgiving is the time of year when family and friends get together to enjoy each other’s company and a myriad of delicious foods. We have a tendency to include our four-legged family members in this feast, which often results in overindulgence.  Even when we don’t purposely include them, the agile and creative dog or cat can capture a special treat from the kitchen counter, trash or even the dining room table!

Thanksgiving weekend is also a busy time for emergency veterinary clinics. Dogs and cats suffer very serious and sometimes fatal consequences from turkey bones, too much rich and fatty foods and just plain overeating. If your pet is not acting like himself or herself, consult your veterinarian.  Your best friend could be seriously ill.

It is difficult to comprehend, but when giving pets treats you must consider the relative size of their body compared to yours. If you weigh 150 pounds and your dog weighs 25 pounds, he or she is only 1/6th of your total weight. If you visualize yourself as a whole pie, comparatively your dog is only one slice of pie. Consequently, sharing an unfinished plate that still holds a generous serving of mashed potatoes with gravy, a side of very rich dressing, a few bites of turkey and a small slice of pumpkin pie with your best friend can make him or her feel miserable.

You do want your pets to enjoy the holiday. Stop by a pet food store and purchase some new dog biscuits or cat treats; then reduce the amount of their regular meal to accommodate the treats they will be getting throughout the day. Remember, biscuits and treats are usually much higher in calories than regular pet food so having them skip dinner may be a prudent choice if they have been snacking all day.

If you are planning a quiet holiday at home without a lot of company and confusion, and you don’t already have a dog or cat to share your life with, this could be the perfect time to visit one of our six Los Angeles City Centers and fall in love with your new best friend. You can get him or her settled in while you have a couple of days off work. What better way to give thanks than to give an orphaned shelter pet a home? You will be repaid with unconditional love and laughs for years to come. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Order your gift basket today!!! xoxo

Omg, it's been forever since I've posted! Sorry!!

Well, first off, Halloween was a blast here in PMC. Trunk or Treat had a huge turn out and everyone seemed to have a great time. L4P ran out of treats by about 6pm which is crazy because I bought a lot of candy! I was very happy to see all the kids and I think some people notice L4P for the first time.

With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving only weeks away, it seems we are now in holiday mode full throttle.  As a new store owner, it can be tricky to know when to start putting out Christmas items. I'm doing a little bit at a time and saving the big stuff for December 1st which is the BIG Frazier Park Holiday event where L4P will have it's own little booth with lots of fun stuff.

Also, we are planning on offering groovy gift baskets with all your favorite doggie or kittie stuff in it. You can even pre-order a basket if you are thinking ahead! You can either pick out what you want in a custom basket or you can order a basket that I fill with goodies. The baskets I make are for either small, medium or large dogs. Smalls are $30, Mediums are $40 and Larges are $50. The basket has toys, treats, collar/leash, a winter sweater, etc.  If you are interested give me a call at 242-1886.

Also, I have 2 MC SPCA kittens for adoption who are coming with me to the store most days. I'm calling them Yin and Yang for obvious reasons...

Lot's of new items here at the store and right now the weather is WARM!!! Get out and about, it's gorgeous. However, rumor has it that on Thursday it will be very chilly indeed so don't think winter isn't coming this year... Come visit us soon!
