Father's Day Gift Ideas for Your Doggie's Daddy

As you can see, the place looks a little different today!  I called in the help of my IT expert of a husband and spruced up my page.  It actually shows a bit of my personality now, which I love!  I added some tabs at the top of the page as well, so you can learn more about me and my little family, and you'll be able to contact me more easily.  I am pretty new at this stuff, and all this coding jazz baffles the crap out of please feel free to leave me any suggestions on improvement in the comments section!

June-July always brings with it a solid chunk of gift-buying holidays, which is both fun and stressful.  (Though I love to buy gifts, my wallet doesn't enjoy it too much.)  My mom's birthday (and mine, too!), sister- and brother-in-law's birthday, cousin's birthday, parent's 40th anniversary, and, of course, Father's Day - which is coming up in only about a week!  I've already got my dad's gift locked down, but I got to thinking...Jared is a "dad" of sorts, too, right?  A doggie dad!  Riley and I should probably show our appreciation for all Jared does for his fur-covered son.

I've rounded up a few great gifts that would be just perfect for your doggie's (or kitty's!) dad...check 'em out!

Is he a pibble lover?  This decal would be perfect for the back of his car! (And for only around $2!)
This "fish hotel" is a modern home for your finned friends.
My husband is always on his phone, so at least with this iPhone 5 case, he'd be promoting a good cause. :)
This "Live Love Adopt" wristband (which, I won't lie, is prrrrobably for women) would look good amongst the tangle of other rubber bracelets Jared usually wears.
I adore this custom-engraved mustache tag from Etsy; it would make any dog look like a gentleman!
Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe is a book of letters from apologetic pups to their owners - hilarious!
Street Dogs (only $9.18) is a gorgeous book full of soulful photos of stray dogs...heartbreaking but beautiful.
My husband isn't a cat kinda guy, but if he were, he would love this modern kitty bed.  
Huskies are Jared's favorite breed, and this underwater photo by Eiko Jones is pretty amazing!

Enjoy your gift-giving!  And don't forget to follow my new Twitter!

In other news, have you heard that it's National Donut Day?!  Due to my stupid gluten intolerance, I am unable to celebrate with eat an extra one for me, and here's a photo of an adorable, sprinkled, doggie donut (from here)!
