Dog Poems:

The wiggle of an ear
just as you near.
A tilt of the head
from something you said.
Tail wagging, making a breeze
a sure sign you really please.
Jump up – turn around,
happy signs without a sound.
_ Patricia Waltert

Big dogs.
Little dogs.
Fat dogs.

I like dogs.
A dog that is barking over the hill.

Great Pet Ideas for the Holidays!

Our wonderful furry friends warm our hearts all year…but even more so when Christmas lights twinkle, fireplaces crackle and the whole world feels like a Norman Rockwell painting. Somehow we’re reminded of bringing our pets home for the first time…the licks, snuggles, paw shakes and playful moments we enjoyed with them as they explored their new surroundings. We rewarded their good behavior, loved them and bonded with them. Now we’re rewarded as they wait patiently by the door to greet us or as they rest contentedly in our laps. The affection they give us never wanes and no matter how we spend the holidays, our pets provide us with the unconditional love and warmth we cherish, year after year.

Great Gifts for Pets and Pet Lovers

We can indulge that nostalgia this Christmas by treating our dogs or cats (or other pets as well!) to some yuletide delectables or special toys. The irresistble taste and aroma of the treats will keep them begging for more and the toys will bring them many more hours of happy playtime. Or why not treat them to a new collar, bowl or placemat, personalized just for them.

Decorating the tree always brings back fond memories, too. Garland, ornaments, and strands of brightly colored lights turn a plain tree into something truly magical. Hanging personalized pet ornaments is a great way to include the family pet in this celebration…just press Max’s paw into the clay, add his name, bake and hang!

Don’t forget family photos! What holiday photo is complete without the family pet? This year dress Fido or Fluffy with a sprig of holly on their collars or put them in a pet Santa hat to make the moment unforgettable.

Of course, there are so many wonderful pet eCards and gifts for pet owners as well…many that can be personalized with their pet’s photos and names!

For a truly memorable Christmas season…why not adopt or foster a shelter or rescue pet and give it the warm, loving home it longs for. There are so many of these animals that need help and the vast majority of them make wonderful companions. It might be the perfect way to start the new year.

Holidays are where the heart is, and having our pets with us during Christmastime makes it an especially joyful occasion. As we celebrate the season and get involved in the hustle and bustle, let’s remember to make some special time for those furry loved ones who calls our hearts their homes.
