Spotted: Disappointed Christmas shopper at Pet Place

by Linda Hubbard on December 12, 2020

A tradition in our household was to take Maggie the Yorkshire Terrier to Pet Place each December to pick out some Christmas trinket for her stocking. And, of course, to get a treat from Lynn.

So it was one disappointed pup when she planted herself in front of the store on a walk downtown this morning, only to sort of sense something was amiss. Yep, the store was empty.

Thank you for your years of service to Menlo Park, Lynn and Marc. We all miss you!

Awwwww…Too sad for Maggie and I’m sure other doggies who’ve arrived at the store to see it empty. But a huge thanks to Lynn and Marc for all the years of exceptional service to the community. I hope they are enjoying their retirement as much as possible under the current conditions…

Poor Maggie……hopefully you find somewhere else for fur baby treats.

That place was a local treasure for pets and humans alike. I suspect it’s not just the treats that Maggie misses; it’s Lynn.

You are right! A month or so we ran into Lynn downtown and Maggie was so happy to see her!

We just adopted a pup and I’m so sad he won’t have the experience of going to the Pet Place and meeting Lynn. This place was the best.
