Men's Cassini 100% Cotton V-Neck Pajamas in Tan with hunting dog pattern pants

There aren't a lot of clothes with dog patterns that are made for men. This is a fun and practical gift made from 100% quality cotton and designed for comfort. From Oleg Cassini line.

Lighted Dog Leash For Safe Night Walking

You will be seen. This leash is fluorescent green and can be seen from a great distance in the dark.

It's can be used for any Toy breed and other dogs up to 80 pounds or so. The leash is stiff but you will be seen!

You can make it blink or have a steady light. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included). Slightly under 5-feet in length.

This is a fun and safe gift for a night-time dog walker.

Travel Bowl - Yummy Travel Bowl - silicone dog & cat pet bowls

You may be shocked at the price, but this bowl would be great for those who RV or otherwise travel often with their dog (or cat). It's even nice for long walks in town.

This is a three-in-one bowl. A spill-resistant water bowl serves as the base. A food bowl is slipped inside while a lid seals everything or can be flipped over for another bowl.

This silicone set come in great colors: mango, lime, turquoise and berry red.

  • BPA free
  • Freezer safe
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Microwave safe

I really, really like this (despite the price) because it's lightweight, compact and easy to transport. Best of all, it didn't leak!

Project You Do Together - Pup-casso Paint Kit for Dogs (for the dog lover who has everything)

A no-mess paint kit for your dog. Really. You put the canvass on the floor, squeeze some dabs from acrylic paint tubes on it, put the plastic sheet over the canvas and then let your dog walk on it (or chase the toys you throw on the sheet) to form a modern-art masterpiece. Finally, you can frame it.

The Pup-casso kit is less than $20 but you could create it or buy replacements yourself as long as you look for non-toxic paints.

If you really like the design your dog comes up with, you can have it reproduced on cups, dishes, pillows, whatever. Maybe even sell it at art shows and fairs.

Think of all the fun you'll have coming up with dog artist puns: Pup-casso, Mutt-isse ....

Charity - Guide Dogs for the Blind at http://store.guidedogs.com/

It's easy to imagine how limiting and scary our world would be if we lost our eyesight. Guide Dogs for the Blind provides - at no cost to the blind person - trained companion dogs that enable the human to go out in the world.

In the words of one blind person who received the dog and training from this group: "Now I go anywhere, anytime I want. He's brought balance and so much love into my life."

Support this group by buying your gifts here.

Another option is to make a donation in a friend's name to your local shelter or humane society. The only caveat is to NOT donate to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) or American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The national groups are political activists and lobby groups. They do not care for animals directly and do not provide any funding to local humane societies or SPCAs. Support your local rescue groups or a worthy national group like Guide Dogs for the Blind.
