Holiday Gift Guide for Dogs and Dog Lovers

For most dog owners, their pets are an integral part of their family dynamic. Thus when the holidays roll around each year, pet owners tend to purchase presents for their four legged friends. In my search to buy all of my loved ones American made goods this Christmas, I couldn’t resist including my jack russell Olive (seen here) in the mix. Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the day I brought her home from the Franklin County Dog Shelter, which gives me that much more incentive to spoil her this Christmas. The following American made presents are for dogs and dog lovers alike. Make your purchases count this holiday season by investing the money you spend on your canines in creating American jobs and aiding the American economy.
