I hope you all are enjoying the changing weather as much as I am! Let me tell you, being a dog in Texas isn’t easy between May and the middle of October. Between the heat and hot ground, it’s best that I take off my collar and just relax inside during the day. But it’s finally safe for me to frolic outside for as long as I want, which can only mean one thing: the holidays are coming!
In case I haven’t mentioned it, I’m a dog, so it’s safe to say that I have a pretty powerful sniffer. My nose always knows when the holidays are approaching, and it’s been tingling a little bit lately with the first smells of my favorite time of year. Which means pretty soon I’ll be making a lot of new friends at home and at work! I love hearing the door open and watching the eager footsteps of people in search of some beautiful holiday decorations to perk up their home and help bring the beauty of the holidays to their family and friends. Sometimes those footsteps are only here for a few minutes because they know exactly what they want, and sometimes those footsteps dance slowly around the store in search of something that speaks to them. Either way, it makes me so happy to know my taste in décor is appreciated.
Some of my favorite things here at Samplehouse are the dog accessories we have. Here are my three favorite things this week that make my tail wag:
Collars and leashes!
I’ve noticed with my sweet brown eyes that a lot of people get gifts and all kinds of new things around this time of year. A new collar always makes me feel like royalty, and I love our collection of fun prints and colors that will make your best friend look festive.
I was sniffing around the dog accessories table the other day and noticed we have some very special doggie-themed cards. The mailbox outside always looks a little fuller around the holidays because the people who love my people like to send them cards. I’d like to send some greetings too, so I think I’ll pick up some of this fun stationery and catch up on my correspondence.
I know a lot of people who love to cook and bake this time of year, so I think they best way to show off your loyalty to your favorite furry pal is with some royal dog dishtowels. Of course we carry Labrador towels, but we also have Pugs, Schnauzers, Golden Retrievers, and many others from which to choose. These towels are so soft and squishy, they could also be used as bathroom towels. What a great way to show your guests who really runs the show this season.
Those are just three of my favorite accessories for the season. I’ll sniff out some more favorites and check in again soon. Happy almost holidays everyone!
Paws and kisses,
