The Artful Dog Shopper
I am a dog lover by nature. I have just always loved the
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 their
children. People with pets are not that different. They see the
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
One I like is getting a great picture of the dog you love and
converting it to a black and white picture, then framing it and
putting an inscription on the frame.
Now this can be done from you to the pet owner, on behalf of
the dog, with something like. "John, I'll always be your loyal
friend. Love, Rocky."
Or if it's for you, you could put something like, "This is my
faithful watch dog, Bessie."
Or, if you have lost your beloved companion, as we did last
year, you could write something like, "In loving memory of Lucky.
The best bird dog a guy could have."
In either instance, you could certainly put whatever you think
suits the receiver best, those are just some examples.
Our favorite picture is of our late but beautiful yellow
Labrador, Lucky. She was out in the field with my husband one day
and had been searching and searching for a mallard lost in the
When my husband was ready to give up and call her back, she
brought in one of the prettiest birds you ever saw, and she was
so proud. The picture was snapped and now is forever matted in
the most appropriate frame: A ceramic model with a yellow dog
chasing some flying mallards.
Go get 'em, Lucky. Tina Spriggs http://www.dog-gifts-and-toys-for-dog-lovers.com
