animal rescue: lola

Just the facts: Lola was rescued with the help of Chicago Pit Stop Rescue and is just 18 months old.

Before she was discovered: Lola was roaming the streets as a stray dog so Animal Control gave her shelter. When they found her, she couldn’t use her front right leg—it’s possible she was hit by a car which shattered her shoulder. She got the medical care she needed, which included the necessary amputation of her leg, and was living with a foster family until we brought her home for the weekend—and that was that! Today, she has a trainer to help with her new transition to family life and is waiting for a cart that will allow her to be more active outside.

Nicknames: I call her Ms. Lolly—my husband often greets her with “rorry ro ro”, our kids refers to her as Snugglebug or Pooh Bear, and her walker affectionately calls her Lollipop because she loves to jump up and give you a kiss.

Favorite Snack: beef marrow bones, organic turkey breast—and nitrate free bacon.

Talent Show: using her puppy dog eyes to make you fall head over heels in love with her, and she has the gift of gab—very good at barking!

Favorite hangouts: snoring the day away on a bed and playing with her rockball in the backyard.

Guilty pleasure: a total belly rub Queen who would be content to lie by your side getting belly rubs until she falls asleep and snores like Grandpa.


joggers and doggers

For safety reasons, dogs are not allowed to join the marathon pack this weekend, but training with them can be a bonus for them and you. Just knowing how beneficial pets are to our well-being—whether at home or the office—imagine how they could enhance a good run.

And of course the exercise is great for them too. So if you’re a regular jogger looking for a four-legged running mate, check out to get hooked up.

When: Friday, June 24, 2011

Tomorrow marks the 12th annual Take Your Dog to Work Day® so if your business allows them, join Pet Sitters International and celebrate their loving companionship.

Studies have shown that pet owners are typically healthier and/or recover faster—even more so if you work together—so if you’re able, take this opportunity to encourage adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and the like.

Save energy too—if they’re qualified paper shredders!

Cat and dog adoption fast facts:
…approximately 4 million pet dogs and cats are euthanized each year due to overpopulation.
…25% of pet dogs euthanized in animal shelters are purebred.
…adopting a dog or cat from the Humane Society, ASPCA—any rescue group—can save their life.
…and, being a pet owner can add years to your life too.

opening day: georgetown

On Saturday, April 30th, the newest CB2 store opened in Washington, DC—Georgetown to be exact.

We’re overwhelmed and grateful for the warm welcome—especially by our new four-legged friends. We love our pets, and the many we’ve featured in our catalogs over the years, so all were invited to stay, play, sit…

Thank You to everyone who came by to say hello, join the pillow fights, jump on the bed, and of course wag a tail—especially since a percentage of your purchases benefited the Capital Area Food Bank.
