Thor at Petco

Shopping with Thor

Thor at PetcoI am so proud of Thor. I took him to PETCO, and he was such a good dog.

PETCO, originally from the US, opened several stores in Monterrey, México about 2 years ago. One of the most surprising aspects of it –for me– is that they welcome dogs in the store. You could actually take your dog shopping there. I’d never heard of a store that allowed that in Mexico!

I wanted to take Thor but worried that he would be hard to control. He’s a bit of a beast at 95 pounds (43kg). And while he has a very chill temperament at home, I worried that he would go nuts in a place where he could smell dogs, cats, fish, parrots and miscellaneous birds…

But, no. He behaved beautifully. He had to smell the entire store before we could go get his treats, but it was fun to see him so amused.

We went at a good hour, too. Right after lunch, so there weren’t many people. I guess a truer test will happen once we go on a busy day.

For now, it was awesome.

    “miscellaneous birds”, Hahaha! Yeah, here in the US, PETCO is very common, likely the most popular commercial pet shop. I like to stop by and watch the fluffy dogs with jungles of hair become smooth and later, unrecognizable (They often trim pet hair in this room surrounded by windows). How old is Thor nowadays? He’s still got it, nevertheless! All it takes it one long look at his brown nose and masculine jowls, mmmmhmmmhmmm! 😉

      Hahaha! Thor is 5 and half-ish. He turns 6 in March! 😀 And YES! In the PETCO here they also groom dogs in windowed rooms and it’s so much fun to watch! hahaha! 😀 I hope I can take Thor again there, soon. We both enjoyed the experience. 😀 Thanks for reading and writing Bea! 😀

    Hola!!
    Guadalajara es super pet friendly y la gente entra hasta al starbucks o a los centros comerciales con sus mascotas!! en una plaza tienen un bebedero para humanos y uno abajo en el suelo para perros =)

    es de las cosas que más me sorprendió al mudarme porque en Monterrey ni de chiste ves mascotas en cafés o restaurantes.

    Me encanta leerte y escucharte… 😀
