A "rose" deserved

Just wanted to let everyone on the West Island know - if you didn't already - of a great pet store on St. Jean, across the street from Loblaws.

Le Reveil du Maitre has qualified staff, and great, healthy food for cats and dogs.

Rottielover "sent" me there to get non-vet food for Misti, and the lady there gave a sample of every type of cat food she had in the store! Misti was quick to choose the Hollistic Blend, so I was there today to pick up a whole bag for her. Lewis came with me, because I've been going on about the place sice I first stepped in there and his reaction was spontaneous "They have my business!"

They gave me samples of the raw food they have for dogs so I could ask the girls if they like it - Dani will not eat anything raw, but Sheba thought she was in heaven - and I bought some of that today as well as the cat food. At the same time I got a huge smaple of dry food to test on Dani (with her delicate bowels) and hopefully she will 1) like it and 2) tolerate it so she can get off the chemically enhanced vet-food.

Oh, and they do grooming too!

Just wanted to give a rose where I feel it is deserved

I only heard good things about these stores (I think they have more than one right? ) I wish I had stores like these here...but not sure I could afford anything they sell tough.

i :love: le reveil du maitre! there's one that opened about 2 years ago a few streets away, so it's a great neighborhood hangout. they make a mean latte or hot chocolate and the owner of the stores, JF, hangs out there alot with his gorgeous great dane. they're very generous with the food samples (dry or raw) and carry a decent line of foods.

They have taught me alot, and helped me do my own research there.
The only male harley is allowed to play with is there. A red doberman, out of all dogs, who knew.
Sarah, I will tell Gwen and Melanie that you give all positive feedback, they would love it.
I LOVE THAT STORE....when I was out of a job, I would go there all the time

Yeah, their success and fast growing franchise is probably what has set mondou into motion towards more holistic foods... There was a two page article in the Gazette a few weeks ago. It's definitely a great idea.

btw, Woofers on Sources should also be given props too... They're great there and always try to please their customers.
