A Refreshing Summer Cocktail Meets Puppy Play Dates in D.C.

Meet Anna!  This featured artist is an old friend of mine from high school. Thanks to the Internet, we’ve remained in touch over the years. She c0-owns an award-winning little pet boutique called Metro Mutts in Washington, D.C.  I couldn’t let the  summer slip by without sharing more about her store – and one of her delicious  cocktail recipes  – with you!

Anna, with some of her Pineapple – Infused Hooch!

Tell us about Metro Mutts.
 I am Co-Owner of Metro Mutts in Washington, DC.  We are a high-end pet boutique with a focus on made in the USA products and healthy foods for cats and dogs.  We also do “Yappy Hours”, host adoption events, have puppy play dates, and  offer pet sitting and dog walking services.  The business has grown tremendously and we now have a second location in DC.

Welcome to Summer!
