My daughter, Kacy, sent this picture to me last night. She said it made her think of my dog Max. We both laughed until we cried! Max has been with me almost 14 years and he really thinks he is a little boy with fur — not a dog. He has travelled all over the world with me – content to ride in his carry bag. He follows me every step I take. When I’m working on my blog posts, he is on the chair beside me, watching me work.
When I’m cooking in the kitchen – he’s watching… and hoping for some little taste of whatever I’m cooking. The other night I was making Eggplant Parmesan for the Velvet Palate wine pairing and guess what… Max was supervising!
Max also wanted to help with our video review of some of these great gifts for dogs. To watch the Make Life Special YouTube Video Review with my “Little Helper” Click here: Pet Gifts for the Holidays
Here are some great ideas for gifts for your “Little Helpers” this holiday season:
Loving Pets Payton Double Diner
Loving Pets introduces a Black Label collection of Vintage single and double diners for dogs. Max’s diner is Matte black vintage with scrolls to give this diner an Art Deco flare. It has no-skid rubber feet and removable stainless steel bowls that are dishwasher safe.
Sunbeam Pets Microplush Warming Pet Pad
Max absolutely loves this! He snuggles into this at night and enjoys a toasty warm bed. This is really soothing comfort for him and any dog would appreciate this gift. Check out Sunbeam Pets to see all of their heated pet pads and heated pet beds.
It has a soft removable microplush cover that is machine washable.
It can be used with any style of pet bed.
It’s great for aging pets ( like Max) because it gives comforting warmth
Exclusively available at PetSmart. It sells for $ 49.99 and is only available in PetSmart stores – not online.
Sherpa Pop Tote EVA Airline Carrier
Max loves his Sherpa Pop Tote Carrier! He really feels safe in it. This is super lightweight and includes a convenient detachable carry strap. Max goes into his carrier when I’m doing my YouTube videos. That way he can watch what’s happening without the risk of him trying to be included in the video!
This great carrier is approved for airline travel, and guaranteed under Sherpa Pet Group’s proprietary Guaranteed On Board program. This carrier features a fully collapsible design that creates a convenient carry case. Check out Sherpapet.com to see all of their great carriers.
Every dog loves treats…and Max is no exception! Evanger’s Nothing But Natural Jerky Treats make a perfect stocking stuffer. These chewy jerky treats pack the juicy flavor of naturally-raised meat and farm- fresh fruits and vegetables into every treat. The bite siz, low-calorie treats ( only 6 calories per treat !) are easy for dogs to eat and are perfect for training. All of Evanger’s food and treats are sourced, blended and packaged in the USA, in the kitchen of Evangers.
