Gift Guide for the Dog Lover

I'm so excited to bring you guys today's holiday gift guide. This one is for all of the #dogmoms out there (and #dogdads). My husband and I have a German Shepherd named Emma (who is currently in a time out for pooping inside...again), but just like our other kids, we still love her. We'd also really love it if she'd quit going potty inside, but that is beside the point. The point is there is no shame in spoiling your sweet fur baby, especially during the holidays!! And while some of these gifts are items for your dog, some are great gift ideas for the dog lover in your life too.


The Dogist 2018 Wall Calendar by Elias Weiss Friedman author of The Dogist, for example, is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves dogs.



These super cute Christmas Plaid Dog Collars by Mr. Bow Tie Boutique would be the perfect holiday gift for doggies and dog owners alike! Whether you have family holiday photos coming up, or you simply want your furry friend to look festive for those…

Music Monday: "Let It Go" by Elsa on Disney's Frozen performed by Idina Menzel


Disney's latest hit animated film Frozen is one of the best in a long time. My girls and I got to see it in theaters, and we were all very impressed. The imagery and music is so beautiful, it's worth seeing on the big screen. In "Let It Go", the biggest musical number of the film, the eldest sister Elsa flees the kingdom after accidentally unleashing her power over ice and snow. In the movie they refer to it as Elsa's curse because it has caused her to hurt people including her own sister Anna, but a very wise mentor once told me that our biggest weaknesses are often our gifts which are merely out of balance, whether stifled or grown out of control. In Elsa's case, her fear of her powers leads her to extreme restraint, shutting away her gift and shutting everyone out of her life. When Elsa is free to use her gift, she completely blossoms. Well, then she goes a wee bit out of control before the whole thing is over. Through her sister's unconditional love, she finds a way to undo the damage she has caused and learns to control her abilities. Her curse becomes a blessing to her family and the entire kingdom. If you have children and have yet to see Frozen, I encourage you to go see it.

For music Monday, we have the big number by Elsa, performed by Idina Menzel. The soundtrack has many other lovely numbers and is available for purchase. Click here to buy the Frozen soundtrack.

  1. It seems the animation companies are finally going back to casting voice actors who aren't big Hollywood names but who suit the characters. I know Idina's work from elsewhere, and she has a good singing voice.
