I wanted to stop at Petapoluza many times before I actually did. Located at the west end of 36th, where the traffic picks up toward busy Leary Way, seems like I was always on my way to somewhere else. Do slow down and treat yourself to a visit. You won't be sorry. Just a short detour from the Burke Gillman trail, too, if you are out walking your dog. My dog is a BIG undisciplined puppy, and Nick treated him like his best buddy, lavished him with treats, and didn't bat an eye when the dog did the unmentionable on the merchandise! I was mortified of course, but Nick was so gracious and reassuring. The shop has a surprising variety of high quality food, toys and gooming items. Toys built for punishment. Fabulous absorbent glove/mitts for cleaning off muddy paws. Squeaky toys with deep voices. I know I can go there for something unique.
