I Am An Artist fosters a creative, café-accented venue for ambitious aesthetes to paint their own original artwork. Individual crafters can decorate a ceramic blank canvas (a bisque) by choosing from a plethora of unfired pieces (up to a $23 value), and daubing, pointilizing, or pollocking swathes of color across its nubile surface using lead-free paint, designs, and techniques from an included studio fee ($7). If the bisque you choose costs more than $23 you can use your Groupon toward the piece and pay the difference. After decorating your piece, the veneered vessel is finished in a kiln, emerging from its fiery womb as glossy, adorable, and confused as a newborn foal. Artists can receive their finished work at the shop or through the mail in the following week.
Freshly back from vacation, a customer walks expectantly into the room. A golden retriever bounds clumsily up, its tongue flapping a rosy greeting and mouth stretched far back into a smile. When the dog’s owner takes up the leash, thanks the staff for caring for her energetic pup, and turns to leave, she feels a tug on the leash. Her dog has planted his feet firmly, trying to back into a sitting position—clearly, he wants them both to stay put.
According to proprietor Lisa Schettino, this is an everyday occurrence at Camp Canine. After a difficult experience finding pet care for her own dog, Lisa set out to create an environment that would not only keep critters safe, but make them want to stay. Now, each Camp Canine location has a resort-style atmosphere sprawled over 9,000–15,000 square feet.
Stressed four-legged friends wiggle with glee during massages, shedding stress from squeaky toys giving them the silent treatment. Against a bass rumble of purring, punctuated by canine yips, green-tea and chamomile facials drive dirt from wrinkled faces and soften wiry fur. As they wait for their next spa appointment, dogs can roam freely in a fenced-in play lot. After tearing through a maze of tunnels and obstacles, they splash into the pool and emerge to toss their cool, wet fur, bejeweling the air with spray. An air-conditioned indoor play area shelters pets from extreme heat and teenagers listening to vacuums at high volume..
Owners too can rest at ease during their pets’ vacation, knowing their animals lounge in private rooms with plush bedding and staff watching 24 hours a day. They check up on their furry friends via scheduled Skype sessions and various webcams set up throughout the Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale facilities. Those locations also pick up and drop off pets that haven’t yet learned how to operate a manual transmission.

When a pet goes missing, many owners rely on ID collars and microchips— which are merely identification devices and not GPS-capable—to lead them to their lost companion. But of all the animals reunited with their families, 90% were found via word of mouth and fliers plastered around the neighborhood, according to Pet Locator USA. So the staff at Pet Locator USA works to expedite these processes in an effort to more effectively reconnect pets and their human counterparts.
When owners register for Pet Locator USA’s services, they provide photographs of their pet, their contact information, and any special-care instructions. If the furry friend is reported missing, Pet Locator USA immediately distributes a PDF of this information to vets, shelters, animal-control units, and known dog-food speakeasies within a 25-mile radius of the owner’s home or the location where the pet was last seen. Owners can also distribute the fliers themselves via text and social-media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
The professionals at Medi-Weightloss Clinics know that healthy weight reduction doesn't happen overnight and isn't achieved without hard work. Each member of the staff, from the medical practitioners to the counselors, has worked to help develop a three-phase system that encourages clients and nurtures the lifestyle changes that keep weight off. The first phase prepares patients for the program with a nutrition plan drafted based on a series of medical exams and tests and backed by supplements, educational materials, and access to the Medi-Weightloss website. Next, the maintenance phase keeps them inspired with weekly consultations and continued analyses. The final phase is designed to help keep the weight off with monthly consultations, metabolism tests, and additional supplements.
The program’s patient website features tools for tracking body-fat percentage, sharing and ranking healthy recipes, and discovering exercises that work new muscle groups like a slap fight with a squid.
