Even if there isn't a new puppy under the tree this year, any dog owner will appreciate this practical present. Bundle up essential supplies in a galvanized tub, which will come in handy at bath time. To the gift's ribbon attach a handmade coupon for dog sitting, bathing, or walking. What's inside: a wool blanket, useful for covering car seats when you travel with your pet; a grooming brush and conditioning shampoo; rawhide chew bones; personalized food and water bowls (many pet supply stores will add names for you); specialty dog food; leather collar and ID tags; a leash; and a journal for keeping track of medical records and amazing tricks your pet learns.
