This article is sponsored by The dogs and the tap, a tavern, indoor and outdoor dog park, daycare, boarding and grooming facility and retail store in Menomonee Falls.No one is at the top of both our rascals and our pets friendly lists. Sure, your puppy could melt a lump of charcoal with his loving, moving eyes, but he also pooped on the new mat without shame. And your cat, well, she understands you in a way that no one else can, but she also snapped grandma’s handmade ornament after tripping over the tree like it was his work.
And yet, despite their contradictory behaviors, pets are still better people than most people and deserve to be recognized as such during the holiday season. Plus, buying gifts for our pets gives us immense joy, so why would we deprive ourselves of them?
For the sake of all the two and four legged creatures involved, we’ve compiled a list of our gift picks that your pets will dig – hopefully not literally – and help return the joy of their love and affection. relentless. #we don’t deserve them
