So, so cute! I'm not super crafty, but that travel bed looks like it's worth a try!

Cute ideas, but no time to implement. I made a trip to the local dog bakery for holiday goodies instead.

Nice ideas for crafty people! there's nothing better than making an X-mas gift by hand :)

Great ideas, Peggy! I think homemade is pretty cool - I may not be proficient with the sewing machine, but I can hand-stitch with the best of them:) Thanks!

Having read this I thought it was really informative.
I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this informative article together.

I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and leaving
comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

Just love it. There many types of gift items available for our lovely pets. I just love to shop the gift items like dog car harness, dog boots Australia for my pet.
