It's Monday in the ole Oil City, and the only thing cooler than this newsletter is our brisk mornings.

In today's Breeze, check out a new Mexican bakery, learn about a high-speed broadband deal for rural Wyoming areas, and dive into Kelly's Local Business Highlight on Tails of the City. There's also a fresh batch of events showcased in the calendar!

The weather today should warm up to around 64°F with some clouds and a 17 mph breeze.

Local Business Highlight:
Tails of the City

Hey everybody! Kelly here again.

I am loving the new colors for this week's newsletter! Very mellow and calming.

You know what else is calming? Pets! I absolutely love my fur baby, Walter. Spoiling him is one of my very favorite things to do. He may be two years old, but he still has the energy of a kitten and becomes bored quite easily by his old toys.

I recently discovered this little pet shop while wandering downtown. I've been in the market for some new and unique toys to keep Walter active and so I wanted to check Tails of the City out.

Read on to find out more about this business!

What pet stuff do they carry?

You can find very unique dog food and treat brands here. Some of the brands they have include Nature's Logic, Redpaw, Nulo, Victor, and Fromm pet food. Everything in Tails of the City is made in the USA! 

They offer free 1 hour home delivery for $10+ orders in the Casper and Sheridan Metro area. Dog and cat food can get really heavy so this is definitely worth looking into. 

They have KONG brand toys!

These toys can be really hard to find sometimes and they work so well!

I'm a huge fan of the KONG brand toys for dogs and cats. Walter had to go on a diet about a year ago and we made good use of these toys that hold treats to encourage interaction and an active lifestyle. 


Support your community and shop local

I can't emphasize this enough, especially in 2020. This little shop is located at 232 E. 2nd Street in Market Square downtown. It was a bit quiet when I went in but the staff was very knowledgeable on their products and offered friendly and fast service.

Make sure to check out Tails of the City and see what treats, toys, and food they have to offer. You can also look at their website to learn more.
