Adorable "Pup-tuals" at Stew Leonard's

These Adorable "Pup-tuals" at Stew Leonard's Are the Perfect Way to Celebrate Valentine's Day

Sit. Stay. Speak now, or forever hold your peace.


Yonkers grocer Stew Leonard's has catered pretty much every type of party you can think of, but sometimes they get a good one. (Who's a good one?? You're a good one!! Yes you are!)

Yesterday, in the spirit of love that is Valentine's Day, a wedding was held, featuring fresh-baked treats, elaborate floral arrangements, music, and a custom-order cake. Zulu and Dakota, the happy couple, grew up as next door neighbors, and looked resplendent in her veil and his collar and cufflinks. Zulu's mom, Shari Wagner of Yonkers, held the leash.

Yup, they're dogs. It was a dog wedding.

Esteemed guests included Westchester legislator Virginia Perez (and guest) and Eamonn O'Brien on behalf of legislator David Tubiolo, who together presented the newlyweds with a certificate of merit. After, the couple happily munched a few of Stew's "Bubba Biscuits," baked-daily dog treats that take the grocer's all-natural ethos and apply it to their pet goods.

It's silly, but we really feel like these two crazy kids can go all the way. And then bring it back. And then we can throw it and they can go all the way and bring it back again, and we can throw it and … well, you know the drill. Classic love story.


  • Hi Gail,

    Yes, your vet is correct in the sense that we should not bathe our dogs too often. However, when using high quality and well-blended formulas it is safe to bathe them as (needed). Dry shampoo is convenient, but is it safe? Using too much dry powder will absorb more than just the excess oils and will effectively destroy your dog’s natural antibacterial barrier. You also risk clogging the hair follicles and contributing to stunted hair growth and the buildup of environmental toxins on your dog.

    Try our gentle, water-based, deodorizing formulas and you will very happy with the results. Yes, We will be expanding our line as we have a complete catalog of over 80 wonderful products. Please stay tuned for launch dates. In the meantime, you can browse through our catalog now by clicking on the following link:

  • I have a Cairn Terrier. He is groomed every 50-90 days per advice from my Vet who believes that dogs should be bathed 2-3 times yearly. The Vet believes that frequent bathing breaks down their skin. Nevertheless, I use a dry shampoo if my dog gets extremely dirty in his daily visits to the park.

    Question: Do you sell products for the protection of paws during the Winter ice and snow? Is your product line increasing?
