Thornbloom on South Park Street is dog friendly! I have been there and I love that store - it is awesome - I have spent quite a bit of money at that store - and someone who works there recently emailed me saying that dogs are allowed - so now that I know dogs are welcome - I will be taking one of mine with me when I go there to spend gobs of money! Their website is at http://www.thornbloom.com/
A beer store is dog friendly! Garrison Brewery even keeps a water bowl and treats at the ready for dogs who may be visiting. Now that is service! I had an email from Peter and his dog Tripper to tell me about the fact - Peter also likes Garrison's use of environmentally friendly beer bottles - it sounds like Garrison Brewery is a VERY good place to buy beer! I think I may have to start driinking liquor!
I got a super email from Vanessa who works at the "Little Mysteries" shop down on Barrington Street in Halifax - they're VERY dog friendly - and all animal friendly! The staff even bring their dogs to work with them! How nice is that? They are a book store that also sells wiccan and occult type stuff, but they also sell neat oddity type stuff that makes cool stocking stuffers - you should check them out they also have a website at http://www.littlemysteries.com/ - Barrington Street and the whole downtown area is becoming a really good dog-walking destination because there's a lot of dog-friendly stores down there.
Up in the north end of the city - Lori and her dog Adah have reported that the Hen House store is also dog friendly. They sell absolutely awesome antique furniture for not too bad prices and they also sell antique linens and pillows. They used to have an old labrador retriever when their store was on South Street - but he has since passed on to the great bog of no return. They also sell super nice leather collars that are not to be missed. Take a towel with you when you go though - not for your dogs drool - but for yours!
