If you love animals, there's a particular source of original, clever,
and often hilarious novelties, greeting cards, home accessories,
and stylish t-shirts for adults, children and even infants that
definitely ranks up there with the best this pet writer has seen...
The source is Takkoda, a British company with a Sioux Indian name that means 'friend to all.' And surely, there can be no doubt about the pets and the best friend creations they have inspired Takkoda Pet Presents to create. Here's a sampling...
Takkoda Pet Mugs
Pick from 17 different mugs to make a set. Takkoda's most famous mugs are the "celebrity" mugs.

Takkoda Pet Mirrors
Everyone needs to carry a glamour mirror in a pocket or purse. The Takkoda mirrors are about 2.125 inches in diameter. You may remember the first design from the 2010 Pets Rock Calendar, from my 10+ Laugh Out Loud Funny Pet Calendars For 2010.

Takkoda Greeting Cards
Takkoda has greeting cards to fit any occasion or none. They have too much variety to show you, so I'll just give you two of my favorites from Takkoda's Animal Idioms collection....

I've barely touched the surface of Takkoda's Pet Presents. No... there are pet magnets, badges, stationery for kids, and much more. Have fun, as I did, exploring Takkoda. Amazon also has a large selection of Takkoda items.
Many thanks to fellow writer Steve for this great tip!
