I understand that you do not have pets at home and sure it would be difficult for you to understand how much people love their pets. On the net you can find many online stores that provide you complete information about gifts for pets. I suggest you a site called http://sugarpaww.com/ which has a lot of gift items for pets. This holiday season they are offering a discount of 15% thru 12/4/07 using the code word "gift" with $9 flat shipping, free gift wrap and no processing charge. They provide a large variety of gift baskets at reasonable rates and I am sure your problem would be solved. Happy Holidays!
I think a toy would be better then treats. I can't just give my dog any treat, because he has a sensitive stomach, so I would probably just throw them out. You never know what kind of diet a dog is on. Toys are always a great option.
I agree any toy that is suitable for the dog and its breed would be a welcome treat for both dog and owner..I know my baby goes through so meny bones and toys I buy her more toys and stuff then I do my kids lol not really but feels like it... but it would give free time for you and you loved one to have a tea or drink while he/she is chewing away then having him/her jummping and getting excited about a new person and have fun with a new toy. hope its goes well.
p.s love the name that is my name.....question is your full name constance?
