The Best Rescue at Pet Expo 2009

Monday, September 14th, 2009

*the Best Rescue 2009*


Molly’s Pet Boutique and Pet Expo have teamed up to find the Best Rescue!


Molly herself is a rescue dog, taken in 7 years ago by the kind people at limerick animal welfare before being adopted by Claire and going on to have her very own pet boutique and website named after her! The purpose of this competition is not only to reward the people who made the choice to adopt rather than buy, but also to highlight the fact that
rescue animals make great pets and that there are plenty of them looking for homes in rescue centres all over the country.

The winner of the Best Rescue competition will get a fab prize from and will be used as a model on the website!

If you think your rescued pet deserves to be the Best Rescue, please email [email protected] with the following:

*Your name
*Your pets name, age and breed(s) if you know it!
*A little bit about your pet, where did he or she come from and how they ended up in rescue.
*Why you think your pet deserves to be the best rescue.
*Some pictures, particularly before and after pictures to show any progress your pet has made since you adopted them.

NB: you and your pet would need to be available to attend Pet Expo on either the Friday, Saturday or sunday. If your pet is nervous around large crowds or loud environments, entry is not recommended. Only enter your pet if you know they will enjoy the spotlight!

Pet Expo will be back at the RDS this 9th to 11th October and it’s shaping up to be even more fun than last year! Tickets are available now from

Hope to see you there!

New winter dog clothes are here!

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009



We’ve been busy all this week at Mollys unwrapping our new winter stock – exciting!

In Ireland there are a few staple items for your dogs winter wardrobe that we recommend.

Regardless of your opinion of dogs wearing clothing as fashion items… it rains here. A lot. I know I’d much rather spend a couple of seconds hanging up wet rainjackets than chasing wet dogs around the house with a towel after lets face it, almost every winter walk. Washing your dog less frequently is better for their coats (and your bathroom!) too. So unless you like spending a lot of time cleaning up after wet dog, we recommend investing in good quality, practical dog rainjacket for winter.


Our new Rainy Day Saver in pink, red or blue with reflective strips is perfect for dark winter walks. At just €26.95, it’s a total bark-ain too!

Older, thin coated, convalescing, or just certain breeds of single coated dogs really feel the cold during our Irish winter. For these dogs we have plenty of warm winter coats to choose from. For a simple, practical but chic BIG dog coat this fleece lined and reflective number ticks all the boxes. There is plenty of adjustment for the larger chested dogs too. For the little guys (up to cocker spaniel size) this funky parka in green army or desert camo are just adorable. For the ultimate girlie coat, this officially licensed Barbie Parka is a girlie dream – it even has applique hearts and cupcakes on the back awww….


For keeping warm indoors we have these practical but really chic Snuggle Stripes knitted dog jumpers. Or for serious cuteness you can’t go wrong with its love hearts sweets themed Valentine Hoodie – adorable!


We have new stock arriving daily over the next couple of weeks so be sure to check back soon!

Happy Shopping!
