have you met hazel & gertie?

and now, a little time out for the beloved furry beasts in our lives: our precious pets. my friend jeannine runs the cutest pet boutique in town, hazel & gerties, and every time lucy and i pop in there i am struck by what a great atmosphere jeannine has created to shop for our cats & dogs. photographer helynn ospina took some lovely photos for you to prove my point.

located in in san francisco’s mission district, hazel & gerties is named for two of jeannine’s three adopted mutts, and visiting is like entering a small pet memorabilia museum, with pet paint by numbers, ceramic poodles and vintage display cases.

jeannine also makes the cutest neckties ever made for the days our dogs just need to be a little dressier. she upcycles them from vintage ties and buttons, and they couldn’t be more adorable. if you can’t make it into hazel & gerties, you can find them online at thwap! jeannine’s etsy shop.

there’s cute little bandanas for the pups, too. and should those rascals get dirty, a big old clawfoot tub to bathe them in, just $15 a wash, and hazel & gerties provides the aprons and all the suds! it’s got the lucy seal of approval!
