With a degree in fashion and a desire to carry on the name of her recently-deceased shih tzu, Tashi Tai, Christine Gregory started creating a line of fluffy dog collars and selling them under the name of her beloved pet. Over the years, with the help of her mother and a new shih tzu named Myko, Christine expanded her wholesale business into a full-fledged pet boutique and spa. It's here that she not only stocks the shelves with gourmet treats and designer apparel, but also pampers pups with spa treatments such as massage therapy, facials, and a full menu of grooming services. Dogs can even take part in half- or full-day day-play sessions, where they safely socialize and pontificate in groups separated by size and temperament. While her Queen of Paws Boutique & Spa may cater to high-class pets, Christine's heart goes out to canines of all walks of life. She takes care to donate apparel, food, and funds to shelters and rescues that help find homes for abandoned dogs.
