santa with pets Day Care Is Going to the Dogs

June 30, 2008 from The Wall Street Journal. By Anajali Athavaley and Lori Barrett

The Happy Paws Pet Resort in New York had the feel of a kindergarten, with colorful rooms and plastic slides where dogs could play. The facility offers a van pickup and drop-off service and we paid $16 one-way to take our test dog, Boomer, from our home to the facility, which was about two miles away. The driver held Boomer's leash when we opened the van door making sure he didn't jump out.

Trendsurfing: New York's new shopping (The Times)

October 21, 2005, by David Rowan
That's just human stuff. The latest retail boom is four-legged. The market in luxury dog care has been growing for a while, but now pet resorts are springing up in the heart of fashionable shopping districts. At Happy Paws on Lafayette Street, for instance - a vast store near DKNY and Armani - Fido can enjoy a morning "spa session", lunch on "dog sushi", and then stay overnight in a "VIP themed suite". At $115 per night, the kennel isn't cheap - but that does include "daily turn-down service and individual flat-panel TV and DVD player with choice of movies". But will they remind Fido to tip?

Most pet owners in New York can now drop off their "kids" at at Happy Paws while they tend to their busy schedules. The 9000 sq ft premier pet spa opened June 25, 2005, and offers hi-tech amenities for both you and your pet.  The place is equipped with live web cams so you can check in on your pet anytime. The best part is the VIP Themed Private Pet Suites that come complete with flat screen TV's and DVD players to stimulate your pet's imagination.

santa with pets Scenes from Last Night's Parties

May 12, 2006, from mediabistro.com, by Ron
Wendy McClure (right) flew in from Chicago to celebrate the publication of The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan , a collection of images from actual Weight Watchers recipe cards with snarky commentary. The party, at West Village '70s-themed lounge Shag, included a central display of some of the authentic dishes from the collection, including (from top) aspic-glazed lamb loaf, crown roast of frankfurters, and fluffy mackerel pudding-which McClure told me one of the guests actually ate at some point, declaring it to taste "like gefilte fish."

As that party wound down, I dashed uptown to the bar where Alison Pace (far left) was meeting with friends and fellow novelists Sarah Mlynowski and Lynda Curnyn after a Borders reading for her second book, Pug Hill . Pace will also be joining the New York City Pug Meetup Group this Sunday afternoon at the Happy Paws Pet Resort on Houston and Lafayette; most of the proceeds from books sold at the event will be donated to dog rescue organizations specifically devoted to pugs.

santa with pets The Lapdog of Luxury

August 23, 2005, by Jen Chung in Animals

As with most things involving pets and technology, we loved the story about dog owners watching their pets via webcams at a downtown "pet resort." Happy Paws on Lafayette Street has high end canine day care and gives owners the perfect reason to feel secure and to procrastinate with web cams positioned in various play rooms. The owner tells the post, "The owners go online all day to watch their pets. Some say they can't get any work done at all from checking it so much." Gothamist can only imagine. Now, we are inspired to insist that all of our friends install webcams in their homes so we can see the cats they brag about so much .

Happy Paws even offers its boarders naptime, flat screen TVs and rooms painted with SpongeBob Squarepants. Sigh, if only Gothamist could check ourselves in. We'll have to be content with obsessively watching the Panda Cam to see how big the new DC panda cub is.
