For the dogs

As a pet lover with a large dog as part of the family, I'm happy to bring attention to today being National Dog Day. What better way to celebrate your pawed pal than to give him a pet-friendly gift. Here are four more ways to show your best furry friend you love him.

Feeling guilty every time you shoo Fido off the couch? We've got the perfect furniture solution so you can relieve your guilt and make your furry friend's day with this plush sofa cover. Available in chocolate and taupe, this throw will protect your furniture from fur and stains. It's even machine-washable.

For the dogsMarley & Me: The Puppy Years ($9)

More for your kids than Ruff, this recently released movie celebrates the cuteness and varying personalities of puppies. The story is cute, the talking pets will make you smile, and, in the end, everyone will be hugging on Ruff wishing he could speak human.

Veggie Power Dog T-Shirt ($24)

Make your pup the envy of the dog park with a stylish dog-designed T-shirt with a cute logo boasting the importance of vegetables. Made of ringspun baby rib cotton for comfort, with double-needled ribbed binding on the neck, sleeves, and bottom seam for strength.

For the dogs100% Recycled Wool Toss-n-Tug Toy (starting at $8)

Bark for Peace has come up with a creative and dog-friendly way to recycle old sweaters and blankets -- turn them into natural fiber tug toys for your pawed pal. Made of wool, these vegan dog toys are gentler on your dog's teeth and gums, and are biodegradable in the case that Rufus buries it in the backyard.
