In October 2017 BC (before cancer for Zippy👼 and before Covid19 for us), we attended a pet blessing in Robinsons Magnolia. Here's a happy snap of Zippy in her well-appointed (w/ lunch bag, pillow, and portable fan!) stroller. She didn't get to explore the outdoors because she's allergic to grass, but she did enjoy the visit to our favorite store, Bow and Wow.
