The sparkle of the Swarovski crystals and shiny rhodium paw print against the black leather band is very striking. The bracelet has a magnetic clasp to assure its safe-keeping on your arm. The Swarovski Elements Dog Paw Bracelet comes all ready for gifting!

Dog Lover Gift 2: "The Rules" Pillow Cases

There's not a dog lover in the world who won't have first hand knowledge of what is printed on these pillow cases...

The pillow case to your left reads:

The Rules

The dog stays outside always!

The dog can be inside, but must stay off the furniture.

The dog can be on the furniture, but never the bed.

The dog can sleep on the bed, but not under the blankets.

I give up. The dog can sleep anywhere.

 

The pillow case on the right reads:

 

NEW
The 
ˆ Rules

Humans must ask permission

to sleep under the blankets.

 

These adorable pillow cases are made of a satiny micro-fiber and fit standard size pillows. Machine washable, these Rules cases will match any linens. (Update: This has sold out. Another cute pillowcase to consider is the "Sleeps With Dogs" available here.) 


 

Dog Lover Gift No. 3:  Custom Dog Photo iPhone Cover

A photo of the dog, of course!  No, the dog breed is not good enough - suppose it's a mutt, anyway?  It must be his or her dog's actual photo uploaded and printed on the iPhone 5 cover.  Look at these adorable cases! You can order one here. (Update: These covers are sold out. but there are some incredibly cute dog covers here.

Dog Lover Gift Number 4: Custom Dog Photo iPad Cover

At the risk of being redundant, an iPad Cover would not be the same without a guy's dog on the cover - nor a gal's either.  So, this custom gift is a must too! (Update: these are sold out too but these adorable dog covers may be even better.)

 

Dog Lover Gift Number 5: Dog Kisses Lip Balm

The Dog Rules Pillow is made lovingly by Manual Woodworkers and Weavers and is a 12.5" square. It reads...

 

If I take it,

it's mine.

If it's in my

mouth, it's mine.

If I had it a little

while ago, it's mine.

If I can take it from

you, it's mine.

If I'm tired of it,

it's yours.

Yes, you know the dog, don't you?
