Christmas/Chanukah presents

December 5, 2007

Its that time of year again to open your hearts, and your wallets, and make Christmas and Chanukah special for your “furry kids”. Sure, you can go the boring route and get the basic sweater, food, treats, etc. But this holiday season, go crazy! Here’s a few out-of-the-box ideas to make your pooch’s holiday merry and bright:

  • THREE DOG BAKERY’S GIFT BOXER – $19.95 – $49.95
  • This dog-only bakery is jammed-packed with yummy treats for our 4-legged friends. My own pooch absolutely loves their truffles and beagle bagels. Their gift “boxers” are a perfect thing to keep your pups happy, and stuffed, for the next 364-days.

  • If your like me, and give your dog a weekly bath, the microfiber drying towel is a must-get. Especially if your dog, like mine, likes to dry off by rubbing himself all over your clean bedsheets. Ultrasoft, absorbent and durable and dries your pet without getting you all wet. Pick this up at Trixie + Peanut. 23 E. 20th between Broadway and Park

  • COMFORT PALS PUPPY – approx. $18.99
  • I was surfing the web recently and came across this thing called a Snuggle Puppy or Comfort Pals Puppy. Man, I wish I had this when my dog was a puppy and he had massive separation anxiety. Instead I tried everything else, from a clock in a sock to a warm soda bottle in a t-shirt. Let’s just say….nothing worked. This is a fantastic invention, especially for young dogs, thanks to an internal heartbeat. So, if you get a new puppy for Christmas, I suggest you snag this too.

  • L.L. BEAN DOG BED – $49 – $99 depending on size
  • What dog doesn’t want a warm, comfy bed to lay on?! Even before I got a dog, I wanted one of these. They are cute, comfortable, soft, durable and come in different colors. Sure, there are some awesome beds out there. But can you get those beds monogrammed? For just $6 you can get your dog’s name on it. Perfect to pull up to a warm fire.


Baby its cold outside

December 1, 2007

Are you cold? Do you wear a jacket when you go outside now? Well guess what people, your dog deserves to be warm too.Yes, there are some breeds that are cold-weather dogs like huskies and saint bernards, but other pups need something to keep them warm. I recommend a cute sweater or jacket to keep them warm.

Also, BIG, BIG, BIG thing – your dog needs booties for the winter. This isn’t a fashion accessory, this is a neccessity. The salt used by buildings and the DOT burns the paws of dogs. You have no idea how you feel when your pup scream in pain – because you lived in another state before that used sand not salt and had no idea.

Anyway, so, here’s a few shops that have some cute stuff to keep our babies warm

  • Trixie and Peanut: 20th between Broadway and Park
  • Petland Discounts/Petco: cute stuff for cheap
  • Salty Paw: South Street Seaport on Peck Slip
  • GAP: they have really cute sweaters and shirts
