I walked in to pet the dogs, ended up buying things for my cat. The prices were nice, mostly on the homemade crackers and toys. Nice store, very friendly owner.

At its heart, the Quirky Pet is one of many Vermont family businesses. I bet you didn't know that the 'interesting guy' son was the Sunday presence for years when the store opened and he was in high school. His contributions (without complaint) helped make...More
