While at Snus Hill Winery in Madrid or Everts Flowers Home Gifts downtown, you may see a cat or two walking about. Look for a beautiful white cat similar to the one on the Snus Hill logo, or see beloved Remington, the grey and white cat at Everts (pictured at the top of the page).

Lovie the dog from Dog Eared BooksDog-Eared Books has a dog in their name and two in their store. If you’re lucky, you’ll find golden retrievers Lovie and Honey perusing the aisles at this downtown Ames bookstore.

Bring your companion to the Ames Main Street Farmers Market for a Saturday they won’t forget. They’ll be in good company!
