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.
Child’s chair feeding station
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 will personalize any message for the canine of your affection.
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!
