Welcome to Woody's!

Losing a pet is tough. When my beagle died at the ripe old age of 14 it was harder than I ever realized it would be. Woody was the greatest. He was there with me when the kids grew up and he was a part of our family. Ten years later I opened my dog wash and named it Woody's. The store revolves around relationships with your dog ... bathing your own dog so you can spend time together, selling healthy pet items, and working with shelters for advocating adoptions. Dogs are treated the way I would have wanted my dog to be treated. Woody is gone but his memory lives on.

Luke has gone much further and it is obvious that losing his dog has been a life changing experience. Hopefully this walk will benefit awareness & research of canine cancer. His walk from Texas to Boston is proof of the strength of the relationship between people and their dogs.

I am totally looking forward to meeting Luke & his boys on Thursday at Woody's Dog Wash & Boutique. Murphy & Hudson will be getting bathed and fussed over and should be looking dapper for their evening at the Humane Society. This is an experience that most of us will never have the resilience to do, but we can all relate to Luke's love and dedication to the dog he lost. He is an inspiration to the rest of us. I know that Woody would be happy to know how much good has come out of our shop and that Luke, Murphy & Hudson will be visiting.
