Shoreditch has had the stamp of approval from feline fanciers with the arrival of the much anticipated Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium, and now it’s time for dog lovers to make their mark on the East End with a pups only venue.

Back on January 13, a mysterious Twitter account popped up called @THOHounds with a somewhat vague announcement:

Since then, it’s become apparent that not only will east London have a cat café, but a dog café (of sorts) will be hitting the trendsetting streets. Unlike Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium, it seems that the dog café will not be homing stray canines but welcoming the local bitches and hounds to get their hair done while their humans have a coffee and a chat. There aren’t many details available about this pooch-friendly hangout as of yet other than it’s set to open in Spring 2014 and will have a fetching doggy décor. But, no matter what it is, the hype has started and even the dogs are getting a little bit excited. Carly-Ann Clements

As soon it hit, dogs everywhere wanted to spread the news:


Some expressed themselves with dance:



Some started the trek to London to make sure they’re in town for the big event:


And some are already getting dressed to impress:

And some are beside themselves:


But mostly, dogs across the city are jumping for joy:
