The Artful Dog Shopper

Written by Tina Spriggs

I am a dog lover by nature. I have just always lovedrepparttar little four legged fur balls.

Another thing I have always loved is animal art. It could be photographs, paintings, statues or even dog cartoons.

I don't really know why I like them, but I do. I've noticed there are a lot of other animal art lovers out there too. It seems to be a natural connection.

People with children often have a ton of pictures of thier children. People with pets are not that different. They seerepparttar 125756 beauty in animals and want to have it to look at.

So how can we take this knowledge and turn it into a great gift idea? Well, there are a few different things that come to mind here.

One I like is getting a great picture ofrepparttar 125757 dog you love and converting it to a black and white picture, then framing it and putting an inscription onrepparttar 125758 frame.

Now this can be done from you torepparttar 125759 pet owner, on behalf ofrepparttar 125760 dog, with something like. "John, I'll always be your loyal friend. Love, Rocky."

Toys are GOOD for your dog

Written by Tina Spriggs

Did you know that dog toys are actually good for your dog, and not just an indulgence onrepparttar part ofrepparttar 125755 owner?

There are all kinds of uses for different types of toys.

First, starting as puppies, toys give your dog a distraction from other would-be toys like your couch or your favorite pair of shoes.

My dogs all love ropes. Every single one of them that has ever had one played with them until they were tiny pieces of thread.

Ropes serve a couple of great purposes, in addition to keeping your dog from chewing your house up like termites.

First, it's great bonding for you andrepparttar 125756 dog if you engage in a good game of tug-og-war. It also helps them exercise. Our dog Sadie is one big mass of muscles. When we play withrepparttar 125757 rope, she uses her entire body to try to get it away and you can just see all of her muscles flexing. She's a Black Lab and hasrepparttar 125758 most beautiful, sleek black coat.

Rope dog toys also help keep their teeth clean. Who wants to have a dog with teeth problems? I mean, you really don't want to go into that pointy landmine when your dog is in pain and irritable, do you?
