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…

March Letter from the Editor


I've never been a big believer in luck. I believe what others perceive as good luck is often the visible result of a lot of hard work and perseverance that has gone on behind the scenes. Lucky breaks don't just happen to people who don't have the right foundation for it.

Do I feel lucky to have met my fiance? To finally have met the perfect person for me? Of course. But it isn't due to some single lucky break or some chance encounter, but rather the result of action, timing, and perseverance.

I don't believe in bad luck either...not as people often refer to it anyway. I believe bad luck is a phrase people like to apply whenever faced with negative consequences. And much like prayer, the hope for good luck takes our responsibilities out of the equation. Show me a "lucky" person, and I'll show you someone who has worked hard, made wise choices along the way, and has persevered through challenges. Show me someone who is "down on their luck" and I bet that person is the type to blame others, to refuse to do the necessary work, and who gives up as soon as things get difficult. Now, don't get me wrong; I know that sometimes bad things just happen to us, things beyond our control. But again, we become faced with the option of hoping for good luck to come along or choosing to work for it. And when all else fails and you can't immediately change your circumstance, you can at least work through it, to the best of your ability and with a good attitude...that is perseverance.

I suppose you could say I do believe in luck after all, though I beg to differ with the Mirriam-Webster definition. I don't believe it just happens to us by chance. Good luck is something we create. Let's create some good luck this month.
