Brielle and Keith adopted me in June 2004. I’ve had a pretty good life. While my dad is more of the disciplinarian, I’ve got my mom wrapped around my paw. She treats me so good I was in the Daily News for my eating habits. I can’t complain. When I heard she was starting 3QT, I told her I wanted in. I’m wise and old and figured I could impart my knowledge on some pet related topics.
With the help from my friend Cristina Racanelli, the President of Wipe Your Paws Inc. http://www.wipeyourpawsny.com/ here is my first post: Holiday Presents!
The gift to give the dog of the hostess for any holiday party: Bubba Rose cookies
Bubba Rose is a bakery in New Jersey that ONLY makes dog cookies, cakes and pupcakes. They believe that every dog treat should be made with real, wholesome, clean ingredients. That’s why they only use local, organic, fresh ingredients from the USA and never any preservatives. Every treat they bake is wheat, corn, soy & gluten free (the most common allergens and fillers in commercial dog products) and always baked in small batches in their bakery in NJ. They only use local, cage-free eggs as well. Just healthy, simple ingredients go into their treats. As if all of that wasn’t enough to sell you on Bubba Rose, they make the cutest darn dog cookies you’ve ever seen. http://bubbarose.com/collections/winter-time
For the dog that loves to chew: Deer antlers!
“What??? REAL deer antlers?!?!” you say? The answer is YES! These deer antlers are naturally shed (read: no deer were harmed in the gathering of antlers). They are organic, odorless and long lasting. Even the toughest of chewers can’t go through these chews like they do most. Best part is they come in a wide range of sizes so you can find the perfect one whether you have a Chihuahua or a Great Dane. My favorite is American Antler Dog chews (though a ton of companies sell them). http://www.americanantlerdogchews.com/
For the traditionalist dog: West Paw Holiday toys
West Paw makes an array of adorable holiday dog toys. My favorite is their Rudy and Mini Rudy toy. All toys are made in the USA which we love! West Paw also makes some cute cat toys too in case there’s a feline living in the house. https://www.westpawdesign.com/dogs/dog-toys/holiday-gifts-dogs
The gift to give the dog lover in your life: Auburn Jewelry’s “Where’s Dexter?” pendant
Each “Where’s Dexter?” pendant is a portrait of an actual dog’s ears. In order to make these adorable pieces, Auburn Jewelry enlists some help from their customers. You send them a picture of your pup and they use that picture to hand cut the silhouette of dog’s ears and turn them into a wearable piece of jewelry. This is the ultimate gift for the dog lover in your life (or a gift for yourself perhaps?). Who wouldn’t want to wear their very own dog around their neck in the form of beautiful, colorful jewelry? http://auburn-jewelry.com/pawburn
