Myko & I sharing the love!

My mission is to provide pet lovers with something that is missing: A posh dog boutique & day spa offering the most exclusive pet apparel, toys, organic treats, spa products and boutique items for a pet owner and their pets delivered with exceptional customer service along with a full-grooming salon, doggie daycare, massage therapy, training, dog parties & more. Another important aspect is working with various shelters, rescues & fosters on finding homes for the less fortunate pets.

It all began after the passing of Tashi Tai, our family Shihtzu in 2004. My degree was in fashion merchandise and design.  I wanted to carry on Tashi’s name so I started designing fou fou Pawrty Collars that look somewhat like a ballet tutu. I started a wholesale / retail business called Tashi Tai Treasures, carrying them as well as dog clothes. My mom and I traveled to dog competitions all over the Midwest, selling from a booth. In August of 2004 I got my Shih Tzu Myko, named after my favorite Greek Island Mykonos. My mom, Myko & I did the shows together from 2004 to 2008. After the passing of my beautiful mother in 2009 God blessed me with the opportunity to open a boutique in a co-op.  Tashi Tai will always be the queen & that’s when Queen of Paws made its debut in May 2010.

In memory of Shasi Ling & Tashi Tai
