At Leo&Lucky’s, we love to celebrate our pet parents! Moms of all species will receive a carnation at Leo&Lucky’s on Mother’s Day – just a little “thank you” for being such wonderful parents to your fur babies. Did you know that Saturday, May 9th is National Dog Mom’s Day? Here are five ways you can celebrate your favorite dog (or cat!) mom:

1. Send her flowers – from her pet!

You can’t go wrong with sending flowers or a plant. There are many beautiful seasonal bouquets and houseplants available this time of year – check with your local florist first as they should have expert advice on which items are safe around pets. Be sure to write something extra cute in the card, and bonus points for less-than-purrrr-fect spellings; remember, it’s from the cat or dog!

2. Book a Mommy and Me pet photo session

This time of year, many photographers are offering Mommy and Me portrait sessions. Your local photographer might love the opportunity to shoot a furry friend and their human mom for a change! Look on local Facebook or Next Door groups to find a photographer to book a photo session with for your favorite cat or dog mom.

3. Make a paw print craft

What mom doesn’t love crafts from their kid? A quick Google search of “paw print crafts” brings up hundreds of articles on how you can make a paw print card, salt-dough ornament or garden stone with a pet’s paw, paw print wall art, and the list goes on. Be sure to frame or securely store the keepsake so it can be treasured for many years.

4. Take mom and pup for a coffee run

Have you ever ordered a puppaccino from Starbucks? If not, spoiler alert: it’s a small cup full of whipped cream, and most dogs can’t get enough of it. It’s not on the menu, but every drive-thru barista will know exactly what you mean when you ask for one. It’s our duty as pet nutrition nerds to tell you that this should be a special-occasion treat only, and that some doggies don’t handle dairy as well as others, so puppaccino wisely!

5. Book a spa session for your pet and their mom

Does the pet mom in your life love a spa day? Make her an appointment at her favorite salon, then make your pet an appointment at The Spa at Leo&Lucky’s! After a long, luxurious day at the (human) spa, what could be better than coming home, grabbing a blanket, and snuggling up with a freshly groomed cat or dog? If you’re running short on time, check out our self-serve pet wash – no appointment required!

We look forward to seeing you soon! Remember that we offer three ways to shop locally with us – in-store, via curbside pickup, or with local delivery. Call 941-776-0770 to order for pickup or delivery. We appreciate you!
