The Muttropolis Party for Valentine’s Day in La Jolla

Muttropolis is a fabulous local pet boutique in the San Diego area; they regularly host parties & get-togethers for its pet-loving customers at their different locations (in La Jolla & Solana Beach), and I love stopping in whenever I’m nearby to check out all their cute products. (It’s where I bought Bailey’s most recent leash!) So I was thrilled when, several weeks ago, I received an email from their marketing team, asking if I could photograph the Muttropolis Party celebrating Valentine’s Day at their La Jolla shop! Naturally, I was happy to join in the fun & meet all their 4-legged customers. (Okay, I had a pretty good time meeting the 2-legged ones, too! Haha!) It was a relaxing Sunday soiree, complete with goodies to eat & drink – and plenty of treats for the dogs too, of course. Check out a few photos from the day!

Adorable pink leather collars. Love!

In addition to all the seasonal party decor, I just love the way their shops are set up all the time. Can you believe they filled a paw-printed bathtub with different products? Shampoos, mostly! Haha! I don’t know anything about retail design or in-store marketing, but whatever they’re doing, it works – because I wanted to buy pretty much everything in the store.

And here are some of the fluffy faces I saw at the Muttropolis party! Toto is the adorable dog on the left, and Sakura (who knows trick commands in Japanese!) is on the right.

Parker & Star are siblings, and I think I saw them walk away from the event with a couple of brand-new beds! Lucky dogs!

Deacon is the handsome old man on the left, and Reagan & Versace (cousins!) are the posers on the right.

Versace is such a little cutie. And I love this outtake of Reagan!

As the party was winding down, I spotted these collars in a display case near the register – do they look familiar? Zoey the chihuahua was sporting one for her session a few months ago! I just love them – they’re beautiful & sparkly without being obnoxiously bling-y. (In my opinion, at least!)

Thanks again to the Muttropolis marketing team for inviting me to this fabulous party! Here’s to next time, when I get to take more photos of your monkey – I mean, doggy customers! :)
