Happy times at Happy Go Lucky
Chewy and I have visited Happy Go Lucky numerous times over the past three years. Chewy loves his trips to the mall. He can usually be seen eating crepes at Crepes Delight, relaxing in his stroller while being pushed through the layers of clothes at Hot Topic or grabbing a quick walk outside of the mall. However, Happy Go Lucky is the one boutique Chewy has to stop, sniff and shop at during each and every visit to the mall. Happy Go Lucky is located in the center of Westfield Valley Fair Shopping Mall in San Jose, CA. The store originally had two locations but in these economic times and the desire to be "boutique" size Happy Go Lucky consolidated both stores into one. This dog boutique carries its own clothing line that is sold around the nation. Chewy and I had the pleasure of seeing a few Happy Go Lucky t-shirts at Dog Savvy in Denver, CO. In addition to a variety of dog t-shirts, costumes, formal and sports attire Happy Go Lucky offers a great selection of dog beds, harnesses, leashes, bags and salon items. Chewy's favorite part of his visit to the boutique is the barkery. Happy Go Lucky bakes their own gourmet dog pastries, cookies and cakes in addition to a wide variety of gourmet dog treats and food.
Personally, I have noticed that Chewy not only likes the barkery but he also loves attending the many events held year round at Happy Go Lucky. Whether it is a Halloween party or St. Patrick's Day Chewy always comes dress to impress and ready to socialize with the other dogs. Most of the events include a variety of doggie and human hors d'oeuvres, raffle tickets/prizes to raise money for local organizations and free dog photography. During the 2010 Halloween event, Dr. Chewy waited in line for 30 minutes for his free photography session. The wait was long but every dog photographed that evening received a free 8x10 photo. On top of that, Vernon printed out a few wallets with his contact information for Chewy too. Chewy also participated in the costume contest. He did not win but he did have quite a bit of fun strutting his stuff in front of the ladies. He is such a showoff! There is much to see and do at Happy Go Lucky. Chewy and I recommend everyone with or without a furry companion to visit Happy Go Lucky during your next visit to the mall. You never know, you might just run into Chewy while he is picking out a gourmet treat at the barkery. Keep wandering!
