Virginia Byrnes has finally opened a Mount Washington Mill branch of Dogma— “life, with your pet”— but thankfully the store has retained its charming downtown vibe. Dogs will dig delicacies from Taste of the Wild, local raw creation K-9 Kraving and even organic food from Karma. For dessert? Buster will beg for cookies from the “barkery.” Pick up a new plush toy (no surprise, a creation called Grandma Hippie is the No. 1 seller here) or a summery ribbon leash. There is professional grooming by appointment, but DIY-ers can scrub Spot in one of the self-serve baths. Now go fetch Savvy a Southside, will you? Good dog. Don’t miss: Savvy’s favorite felines are huge fans of the original Scratch Lounge. This cat bed/scratching post/mess-free-catnip-roll-around-spot is simply one of the most brilliant pet products ever invented. 1340-G Smith Ave. (next to Whole Foods Market), Suite B, 443-708-4420
