Creature comfort ...

I'm a 'dog' person, and I jokingly call my BFF a 'cat lady.' It's funny how we often identify ourselves by our pets. It seems most humans seek the companionship of furry, feathered or scaly creatures, and we're happy to provide our sidekicks with lots of creature comfort.

 
My furry child, Kahlo.

For over 30 years, we've raised Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, and for over 30 years, I've pampered every pooch (sometimes to my husband's dismay). But, this lovely lady named Kahlo is special. We adopted her as a young puppy from a rescue organization that saved her and her litter mates who were being abused.

Kahlo loves, loves tennis balls!

There's nothing I wouldn't give her. I'm such a pushover and love to see her happy! Luckily, she's low maintenance with simple tastes. She loves to play fetch with her toys, particularly tennis balls.


But, one look at the beautiful bowls (above) designed by Rae Dunn, and I'm thinking I should spoil my doggie with some special dinnerware of her very own.


Dog obedience training a la Rae Dunn's clay napkin rings (above) might work well for dinner guests, too. Her clay work is sold in her Etsy store.

There's no dog carrier big enough to carry my pooch, but if I had a little tail wagger, a great bag would be a must-have.


Cute, cuddly toys always appeal to pups large and small (though our Chesapeake abandons them after a few moments). No matter what I buy, my dog seems to find the greatest happiness with simple tennis balls.

If you're into designer doggie duds, check out Mungo & Maud, Dog and Cat Outfitters ... they give equal attention to kitties with lots of glamorous goods for fancy felines, too.
