|Kwanzaa tee for pup|
I don't think I'm the only one who likes to give and receive presents around this time of year. With so many giftable occasions on the horizon it seems like a good time to review presents for the dog lovers among us. I have some busy cyber friends out there creating must have items.
I have to start with Sue at For Love of a Dog because she has been coming up with so many new and unique - as in one of a kind - handmade items. http://www.forloveofadog.com/catalog.htm
|One of Sue's pins - perfect year round wear|
|Nova Scotia Duck Tolling retriever bracelet|
Sue designs and makes one of a kind bracelets, pins, and necklaces.
Sue is also an active proponent of adopting/rescue and has an entire line of rescue jewelry.
Sue has different styles of leash holders - with a range of breeds depicted - here are two that are near and dear to my heart, a Collie and a Labrador.
And who wouldn't want a decoration like these pups!
Sue also makes elevated feeding stations for dogs but not those run of the mill, all the same feeders. Sue re-purposes and personalizes, creating feeding stations which are truly gift worthy.

|Mini cedar chest - storage and feeder in one|
|Vintage box - storage and feeder|
Really, Sue's For Love of a Dog is a must-visit site when you're shopping for a dog lover.
I also have to mention - Sue acknowledges that some of us like cats and horses - she has gifts for 'those sorts of people' too :-)
If you're lucky enough to be in Canada and want to send someone - including your own canine friend - a tasty greeting, then I must recommend my friend Wendy at Shake a Paw Greetings.
Wendy brings an artistic and wholesome approach to creating messages of the best kind for dogs - edible dog treat messages. How much better is that then a card!
From Hawaii comes Sugar the Golden Retriever and Sugar's Paw House: http://www.sugarspawhouse.com/
Sugar and her humans have put together a book and puzzle perfect for younger dog lovers:
They also make unique dog tags such as this one, featuring Sugar herself:
Sugar's people are taking orders and you might even be able to order yourself a very nice looking cotton bag with a Sugar picture on it!
There are so many occasions that make giving a gift a good idea. Here at Saved by Dogs we hope you have a fun gifting season in your future!
|It is the season to be inclusive after all...even of cats!|
