New bakery and boutique for dogs opening

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A new bakery and boutique that caters to your furry friends will soon open in Jonesboro.

You Lucky Dog!, a locally-owned canine bakery and boutique will open April 30 in the Southgate Shopping Center on Southwest Drive.

"As dog owners and shoppers, we understand your true love for your dog, and we also understand your desire for your dog to have the best food and high fashion, because after all they are a part of your family," owner Shae Shipman said.

The store will offer grain-free foods, organic treats, beds, collars, toys and bath and spa products for dogs.

For hunting and sporting companions, they will offer power bars, outdoor gear, hunting supplies and special harnesses and leashes for runners.

"We have been asked several times if we will carry sports-related dog attire and the answer is yes," Shipman said. "It doesn't matter if your dog is a Red Wolf, Razorback or both, because we will have both schools covered in your puppy attire."

Shipman said her main reason for opening this story is her brother Kyle and his dog, Turbo.

Kyle served in the United States Army from 2007 until 2009.

He was injured and returned home as a disabled veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Shipman said Kyle found peace and calmness through Turbo and Pets for Vets.

He was killed in a car crash in December 2012. Shipman said their family believes Turbo made the last days of Kyle's life more peaceful.

"On Kyle's behalf we applied to be a sponsor for Pets for Vets in Jonesboro, Arkansas, which is a nonprofit organization and program that is dedicated to supporting veterans and providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with America's veterans who could benefit from a companion animal," Shipman said.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held April 29 at 2:30 p.m. at the store.

Their grand open will be April 30, which coincides with National Pet Adoption Day.

The Blytheville Humane Society will have adoptable pets at the store.
