Is there a "Fido" or a "Fluffy" on your Christmas gift list this year? Or are you planning to give a loved one the gift of feline or canine companionship? Whether there are four-legged family members on your list or in your future, Mud Bay offers the best in all-natural pet foods and pet supplies.

Mud Bay began as Mud Bay Granary, a general store of sorts named for the South Puget Sound bay where the main store was once located. But bit by bit, over the years, Mud Bay Granary general store became Mud Bay pet supplies store.

The Trader Joe's of pet supply stores, Mud Bay believes in a philosophy of fair pricing. That means Mud Bay buys in bulk in order to get the best possible price and then passes the savings along to its customers.  There's no need to wait for a sale (Mud Bay doesn't have them):  Mud Bay products are always reasonably and fairly priced, 361 days a year. (Mud Bay is closed the other four.)

Wondering what Fido and Fluffy want for Christmas? Here are some suggestions from the good folks at Mud Bay:


Planet Dog Tough Mint - This is a non-toxic, washable chew toy in the shape of a Starlight mint, complete with a pleasing minty scent.

West Paw Tuckered Out Fleece Bolster Bed - This machine-washable and dryable dog bed is open on one side, providing easy access for both young puppies and elderly dogs with stiff, sore joints. It's a nice, warm place for Fido to sleep on cold winter nights.

Mud Bay Big Bones - Put one of these delicious, all-natural, individually wrapped giant dog biscuits in Fido's stocking to make Christmas morning extra special.

Go Dog Holiday Snake Dog Toy - This plush dog toy with an internal squeaker is so cute, you might be tempted to give it to one of your two- legged family members. But don't - This toy is just too perfect for tug of war and fetch to be wasted on human beings.

Fluff and Tuff Elephant Toy - And speaking of cute, this super durable stuffed elephant is just adorable. But don't let the plush outer cover fool you. A tough mesh inner liner will stand up to all the mauling and rough play Fido can dish out. There's even an internal squeaker to keep his attention. The Fluff and Tuff Elephant toy is super safe as well, with stitched-on eyes to eliminate choking hazards.


Charming Pet Snap Cat Toys - These toys are too much fun. With a plush toy at one end and a genuine feather at the other, this toy guarantees hours of healthy, interactive play.  Just squeeze the plush toy and the feather at the other end wiggles around in a lifelike manner, bringing out the jungle cat in little Fluffy.

Le Sharma Cat Caves - Handmade in Nepal, these 100-percent eco-friendly, natural-felted wool cat caves are every kitten's dream come true: a hole to crawl into and a dark, safe space that's warm in winter and cool in summer. Fits cats up to 18 pounds, and each is unique.


West Paw Big Sky Blanket - This warm, comfy, machine-washable blanket with a faux suede side and a silky soft fabric side is just the thing to elegantly protect your furniture from unwanted pet hair. Your pet and your furniture will thank you.

The well-trained staff at Mud Bay is always available to help you find the perfect food for your pet's special diet, the perfect toy to encourage fitness and play, or the perfect supplement to ensure your pet has the longest, healthiest life possible. They even have an assortment of free brochures to help you care for your furry friends. With seven stores to choose from in the South Sound area, there's sure to be one near you.
