Best Shop Pet

Woof! Nothing makes a shop a friendly place quite like a trusty animal sidekick, and for Chippewa Vallians, Kaya at Raggedy Man (401 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) fits the bill with her lovable personality and always-wagging tail. Second up is Brutus at The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire), who will always support your choice in beer. Mr. Fluffypants at Together Farms (W93 Norden Road, Mondovi) barks up to third place, meaning all three winners are puppers. –Rebecca Mennecke
