Anything Canine Boutique Welcomed
A crowd of dogs and their owners helped welcome Anything Canine Concierge, Boutique and Spa to downtown Laguna Beach on Thursday, May 5.
Mayor Toni Iseman, Chamber of Commerce executive director Rose Hancock, and other guests were on hand to cut the official opening ribbon for the shop, 357 S. Coast Highway. Owner Lee Ann Litterst and her Anything Canine team hosted celebrity vendors all weekend, including dog-clothing designers Linda Higgins, Susan Lanci and Jake Dynnis.
The shop also held a doggie fashion show and contest. A number of pups paraded in everything from casual t-shirts to stunning feathered headgear. Judges chose Georgia, accompanied by Nanette Baker, and Isabella, accompanied by Kathy Warren, as first and second place winners, respectively.
Family Carpet Cleaners Boast a Green Clean
Pacific Ocean Carpet Care, a family-run company located in Laguna Audubon, boasts hands-on customer care, but also green cleaning products and methods.
It’s owned by Bill Vivers, a 17-year industry veteran, who oversees the crews on two vans while his wife runs the office. “I’ve kept the company small so I can keep the quality top notch,” said Vivers, who promises to exceed the expectations of any potential customers.
Vivers says the company uses a state-of-the-art vacuum that maximizes airflow and reduces dry times. He also claims that his system of rinsing with fresh water after cleaning, and then using a “super strong vacuum” to remove all residue, results in longer lasting cleans. The carpet cleaner does not dispose of waste water in storm drains, Vivers said.
Nicola Peterson, leasing manager at First Team Estates in Laguna Beach, recommends Vivers’ “great little family owned business,” a service she has used for 10 years.
