Daisy's Pet Supplies

Daisy's Pet Supplies is an online pet supply store that sells dog toys, beds, leashes, collars—you name it! If Beverly weren't such a freeloader and actually had some money, she'd shop there in a heartbeat.

Vicktory Dog Wine

Okay, the makers of Vicktory Dogs Wine don't exactly read this blog (or maybe they do!), but a few people sent me this link and I had to include it in my gift guide.

So, remember the dogs rescued from Michael Vick's dog-fighting ring? Well, the dogs now live at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the largest no-kill, no-cage animal rescue sanctuary in the U.S. An artist began painting portraits of these dogs, and a vineyard in California put the portraits on bottles of wine and is giving 100% of the proceeds back to Best Friends. The wine is available by the bottle or the case and would make a great gift for any animal lover.
