Zeke: 1.5-year-old lab
Kallie: 2-year-old Chihuahua dachshund mix
Most animal-lovers probably already know one of the best spots to revel in a few hours of dog-watching is at the Farmers Market of the Ozarks. Restaurant patios are pet-friendly, and there are more than 4 acres of green space for you and your canine friend to enjoy. But the pets don’t all head home after the market. Several shops around Farmers Park have their own pets in residence. Two canine besties, Zeke and Kallie, hang out at the home decor and design shop Ellecor Design & Gifts. During the day, the furry friends romp around the store, greet customers and lounge on the plush corduroy couch, which serves as just one example of the store’s more durable and washable fabrics. Kallie and Zeke aren’t the only pups to be found at Farmers Park. Just across the way is Lemon—a black lab that runs the show at 5 Pound Apparel. Between the pet stations, the walking paths and the water bowls, Zeke, Kallie and Lemon are living the doggie dream. For store owners or business that have messy pets or employees wandering around, Garard recommends installing luxury vinyl tile or carpet tiles. They look great, plus they’re easily cleanable and replaceable.
