What About Dog Mom and Dad? Top 5 Holiday Gifts For Dog Lovers

By Amber Keiper
Last week, I shared with you my Top 5 Holiday Gifts For The Spoiled Pooch In Your Life…but then it hit me! What about the loyal dog lover in your life? What do we give someone as compassionate, warm hearted, and downright awesome for the holidays?

Well, being a dog AND cat mom myself, it wasn’t as hard as I thought to find some really cool gifts that would make any pet lover smile. Then again, it was a pretty tough task to narrow down my list to the top five gifts. So I enlisted the help of the savvy, dog loving team here at BARF World…and with their help, I’ve was able to condense the list down to the,

Top 5 Holiday Gifts For The Deserving Dog Lover In Your Life:
  1. tee“Rescued Is My Favorite Breed” T-shirt from The Animal Rescue Site

  2. “While it is no secret that I have a soft spot for Dachshunds, all of my dogs have been rescues.  I think that rescue organizations do an invaluable service, and often do not get the credit they deserve.”

    So true! And when gifting this cool t-shirt for the holidays, why not go the extra mile and make a donation to a rescue organization on the dog lover’s behalf? It would make your holiday gift all the more memorable. Available online at www.theanimalrescuesite.com.

  3. “The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs” by The New Yorker Magazine

  4. A must-have addition to every dog lover’s library, this book (bound in a stylish red hardcover) contains stories, articles, poems…and of course, timeless New Yorker cartoons on the best subject in the world: DOGS!

    This book makes the perfect coffee table companion or stocking stuffer so make sure to get an extra one for yourself…on sale for $26.75 online at Amazon.com.

  5. Definition of a Dog Lover” Coffee/Tea Mug from Tumbleweed Pottery

  6. Who wouldn’t love to take a sip of tea or coffee from this adorable mug? Not only does it come in an elegant cream and black color, it explains, ever so eloquently, the definition of the term “dog lover”.

    Get yours online at Amazon.com and get it for only $16.99 – that’s 23% OFF the normal retail price of $22.10.

  7. “Dog-Translator” iPhone/iPad app (FREE)


    These days, it’s often hard to find something that’s truly free – but with this whimsical dog translator iPhone/iPad app, you’ll find hours of entertainment and laughs for the whole family.

    Just record your dog’s bark with the app and in seconds, you will receive the “translation” of what your pet is trying to tell you. Is it accurate? Well, I’ll let you decide.

  9. Brighthaven Estate Wine Sampler from Brighthaven Healing Arts Center for Animals

  10. And finally, my personal favorite on the list: the Brighthaven Estate Wine Sampler. This sampler includes a wine for every palate: a full-size bottle Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Best of all, a third of the proceeds of your purchase goes to Brighthaven.

    Brighthaven Healing Arts Center for Animals is a non-profit organization and animal sanctuary that specializes in finding loving homes for orphaned senior and special needs animals. Their headquarters is based in Santa Rosa, California on a beautiful 10-acre farm. Educational tours available by appointment only – please call Vicki at (707) 578-4800 for more information.

 Bark Out Loud

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can get going without pep pills,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can overlook when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him,

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics,

Then you are probably the family dog.
