Holiday Treats
For The Hounds

Lavishing attention, gifts and toys on dogs is nothing new to me. Growing up in a home where the dog was our baby, my sister and I have been giving Bailey birthday and Christmas gifts for as long as I can remember. Faux fur-lined jackets. Turtlenecks. Pink studded collars. Matching leashes. You name it, we probably bought it. Unfortunately, my parents didn't see the need to dress dear Bailey up every time they took her out, so many of our gifts went unused, unless we were visiting and dressed her up ourselves.

2. Rain coats and jackets

Some people may think this is a luxury pet item, but having lived in both freezing cold Colorado and now in rainy San Francisco, keeping your pet bundled, dry and warm when they go outside is oh-so-important! This is especially true when living in a city without a yard. Like it or not, your dog WILL have to get out to go to the bathroom and get some exercise. Keep in mind if they're not covered up, they'll likely get wet and cold! The iPetConnection for designer dog clothing offers Puppia Base Rain Coats in trendy colors and a camo print!

Oops... didn't make the link live, sorry! Five Surprising Foods that are Poisonous to Dogs

I LOVE the Puppia harness; don't tell Mr. Henry, but he's getting one for Christmas this year. Another thing to keep in mind around the holidays is to watch what "people food" snacks we give our pets... some foods that are perfectly safe for people (onions and grapes, for example) are actually toxic to dogs: http://urbzen/2008/11/11/five-surprising-foods-that-are-poisonous-to-dogs/
