I hope y’all are having a great start to your week! My morning started with extra cuddles with Muffie, my sweet kitty. I rescued her last year and my life hasn’t been quite the same since!
If you know me, you know that nothing but the best is good enough for my Muffie (cue the Frank Sinatra). While the internet has a plethora of options for her, I try to keep my money as local as possible. To my delight, Southern Barker (originally of Lexington, but they now have two Louisville locations) now has both dog and cat lines!
Believe me, y’all – this is the one-stop shop for your furry friend. I know the ladies behind the brand – mother and daughter duo, Leslie & Sarah Stewart – and they are kind, passionate, and to understate, stylish.
The love that they have for their animals is palpable and is clearly reflected in the store’s curated inventory.
The best part? Their treat bar! While they have a happy hour, the prices are spot-on for the quality (even low, in my opinion!). I’m not going to lie, y’all – some of the dog treats smelled so good that I was tempted to try them!
I picked up some treats for my Muffie, her favorite being the salmon skins. However, I couldn’t forget my niece dogs Stella & Willow. I chose a peanut butter-flavored treat and a bacon-flavored treat for them; needless to say, they were devoured!
Whether it be for treats, toys, food, accessories, or pet-related merchandise – y’all must try out Southern Barker. Be sure to tell them that I sent ya!
