Give your special someone a reason to cuddle up next to his or her pup this holiday season. Tom Ryan’s book Following Atticus, the tale of a man and his miniature Schnauzer, Atticus, is a sure hit with any dog lover.

A Good Dog
Like Tom Ryan’s Following Atticus, A Good Dog is a feel good book that any dog lover would be privy to reading over the long winter. In the story, author Jon Katz documents his relationship with his beloved border collie, Orson. A Good Dog is essential to any dog lover’s bookshelf.
Reflective Safety Vest
Safety is always key. Any dog-lover will be privy to receiving a reflective safety vest for their very own canine companion. The reflective safety vest, similar to the vests the construction workers wear, keep peoples’ eyes on your dog. Great for late night walks.
