Furbo Dog Camera

I’ve recommended the Furbo Dog Camera before, and still think it’s a great gift! You can see your pets while you’re away (…aka stalk your pet all day, wondering why you ever left them in the first place). You can also talk to them through the speaker and even toss treats to them!

I'd Rather Be With my Dog Shirt

Ask any pet parent if they’d rather be with their dog, and I’m confident the answer will be “yes!” I have an “I’d Rather Be With My Dog” shirt and get so many compliments on it. 

Plus, this company donates 5-10% of its sales every month to a different animal rescue or cause. It’s a win-win gift!

Wisdom Panel DNA Test

Us humans want to know our ancestry, so who wouldn’t want to know their pup’s ancestry as well?? For rescue parents, their dog’s breed can be a guessing game. Help take some of the guesswork out of it with a Wisdom Panel DNA test.

We did this test for Roxanne (which is how I found out I’m a border collie mom!), and just sent in the test for Gracie as well.
