Paws for the Cause

Howling at the moon never solved your problems. Then again, you walk on two legs and clean up after someone who drinks out of the toilet.

No need to ruff it at Glamour Paws, a new boutique and grooming lounge for dogs, cats, and the people who buy their holiday sweaters.

Prettily striped walls, bleached wood display cases, and the store mascot — a perky shih tzu named Princess — give it a candy shop vibe. Snacks like chicken-wrapped fruit and local Big Daddy Biscuits are just a drop in the bowl. Shop motorized mice, mailable rawhide greeting cards, and pet clothes from all over.

And don’t miss Yappy Hour Fridays (wine for peeps, treats for pups) and self-service Sundays, when DIY baths are priced low.

No shame in drooling.

Glamour Paws, 776 North Highland Avenue, Virginia Highland (404-885-9285 or glamourpaws.net). Grand opening party, Saturday, May 2, 7 p.m.
