Style Mag has one. The Globe has one. Even the Times has one. I’ve decided that it’s essential to come up with my very own Holiday Shopping Guide. Pups, look no further. I’ve compiled a list of the best of the best dog goodies to make your list to Santa Paws a cinch. Oprah’s got nothing on me.
The first thing people see when they walk into the Digs is the decorative treat counter. I have to admit that during the holidays it’s especially hard to resist the yummy goodness that looms temptingly above my head for 8 hours a day. Puppy Piper hasn’t learned quite yet how to resist such beauty and is going crazy when behind the counter. We make quite the pair, the sniper and the snatcher. Anywho, I’ve spent most of the year preparing for this season. I’ve spent countless hours taste-testing the yummiest treats from around North America to make sure our holiday display is our best to date. Treats came in from all over, Canada, Colorado and even everyone’s favorite local bakery Preppy Puppy. We also have plenty of our famous odor free USA sourced bully sticks available. Antlers are on their way. Let’s face it, we’re dogs. If you want to make us grin from jowl to jowl people, get us a treat.
Organic knit trio
” A lump of COAL!?” the babble ball yells from across the store as I write this. ‘Tis the season for TOYS! And boy, do we have lots of toys. Tough, cute, interactive, singing, squeaking and annoying (cue Henrietta) toys everywhere! My personal favorites this year are the sweet organic cotton toys. They are hand-knit and are a perfect size for dogs like me that like to run around the house squeaking maniacally. We have lots of reindeer, Santas, snowmen and gingerbread in stock guaranteed to spread good dog cheer.
Now, that’s a perfect pet stocking
Cute stocking, check. Everyone is always asks what makes a good stocking stuffer. Okay, no one actually asks us that but that’s because we put them all together in a big display with a big sign that says “STOCKING STUFFERS”. It’s a great time to stock up on the essentials; rolls of poop bags, pet tag silencers, new clickers, night-time blinkers. You know, the doggie equivalent to socks and toothpaste.
Haha, Coop looks ridiculous!
Barney’s and Neiman Marcus can eat their hearts out, we have the BEST dog clothes and accessories right now. USA made waterproof coats, washable cashmere sweaters, bowties, scarves and booties. Also, we have an assortment of Santa, reindeer and elf holiday costumes. If you’re more Carhartt than couture we still have the right gear for you. Reflective vests, winter coats and washable wool sweaters are guaranteed to keep you functionally warm, dry and visible this season.
My signature collar, holiday edition.
Most of the people on my list are getting framed pictures of ME. Okay, maybe not everyone…. gasp… wants a picture of me for Christmas. Maybe they want one of you and we have the perfect frames for gifting. Also perfect are our locally crafted shell ornaments. They are all the rage this season! We have many breeds, nondescript breeds and even some cats are available. We searched high and low for many years in search of nautical themed dog gifts and are so happy to have finally found them! These shells are guaranteed to put a smile on any dog, cat and Cape lover’s face.
Clockwise from top: Winnie (me), Trix, Rocco, Coop
There’s lots more to talk about but the store is getting busy and I have to get back to work. One more thing I’ll mention is that due to the busy holiday season, Mum and Nicole slacked off a bit and weren’t able to get any of the new stuff online. If you’re one of our favorite out-of-towners, give us a call and we’ll be happy to ship any of the mentioned goods out to you in time to open up Christmas morning.
Wishing everyone the merriest of holidays,
