Looking for the pawfect holiday gift for dogs? Tripawd Spokesdog Wyatt Ray has the answer!
BarkBox Brings Cheer and Hoppiness
Finding great holiday gifts for dogs is easy when you let BarkBox do the shopping for you. Bark Box is a subscription dog box service that sends members fun-filled packages tailored to each dog’s size.
Each monthly BarkBox is a fun surprise filled with four or more presents ranging from entertaining toys to grooming products and healthy treats.
- Treats are sourced from the USA and Canada
- Chews are sourced from the USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
- You’ll never find rawhide or anything processed with formaldehyde.
- There’s no glycerin whenever possible, as well as wheat, gluten, soy, corn or fillers
- You’ll also find a growing emphasis on organic and limited, if not single, ingredient products.
Best of all, the company donates 10 pawcent of proceeds to animal welfare organizations!
Wyatt Ray was lucky enough to try the November Bark Box. You can bet that he is now friends with the mail carrier!
BarkBox smells so good, he almost ripped the box to pieces trying to open it. What a great surprise when he succeeded: Wyatt got an awesome, big toy for big dogs! He got the PetSafe Slap Happy, which BarkBox describes as:
“The soft, sheepskin-like cover conceals an inner frame that, when bitten, stimulates a dog’s predatory instinct; it mimicks the sensation of crushing a rib cage.”
Oh boy how did BarkBox know: that’s just what this German Shepherd wants!
After working up an appetite crushing the imaginary rib cage, Wyatt was delighted to find yummy goodies including Twistix, a vanilla-mint flavored oral hygiene treat, and wheat-free cheesy turkey bacon goodness in Bocce’s Bakery treats.
It’s a sure bet that any dog lucky enough to get a monthly BarkBox will develop a very good relationship with the mail carrier!

Give Something Personal This Holiday Season
If you have a digital camera or smart phone, chances are you have a lot of wonderful photos of your furry friends and the people you love.
There’s also a pretty big chance that if you do, many of those photos haven’t been seen since the day you first took them, posted them to Facebook, or picked that new wallpaper for your desktop computer.
Now, imagine all your favorite photos in a personalized book, given as the perfect gift. Wouldn’t you look like the best most thoughtful person ever? Yeah, you pretty much would.
With Blurb‘s easy to make, custom books, you can create a photo gift book that’s both personal and extremely polished.
You can use your Facebook photos, Instagram photos, or photos on your phone or computer. You can design your own book, or have it automagically created with the Blurb Designer Collection templates. All these tools are designed to run right in your web browser, letting you make a book in as little as ten minutes, and they start at just $12.99.
A real book. One you can hold, share, and pass on. Plus it’s so easily customized that you can create different versions for different people. Just swap in a few new photos, change the text, and re-order. Looking to make something a little bigger, like a family history book? Yeah, Blurb has ways to do that too.
Of course, this is a custom gift, so you don’t want to be last minute about it. Even though you can order up until December 19, ordering early is always better (and a bit cheaper too).
So, get started on making a beautiful gift book now. It’s easy with Blurb.

The calendar features our 3 legged friends of various species from across the UK, showing the world that it really is better to hop on three! Thank you for purchasing the calendars over the last two years and keep snapping ready for next year! – Caroline Murphy

There are a lot of gifts you could give this holiday season, but when it comes to something really meaningful, there’s nothing quite like the gift of a personalized book you’ve made yourself. Consider making a custom photo book or weekly planner featuring favorite photos of your three legged friend!
But before you start having visions of gluing and sewing together pages, check out the Blurb Gift Center for inspiration.
Blurb lets you make seriously beautiful books using their free tools. Just add photos and text, choose your options (like paper and cover type), and then order. Of course, you do have to decide just what kind of book you want to make. But relax, because they have put together the cool Blurb Gift Center to give you lots of ideas.
For instance, if you’ve got someone on your list interested in genealogy, check out the Blurb Family History Book.
For those with newborns (or those that know someone with a newborn), a Blurb Baby Book might be just the thing.
And if you’re the kind of person who keeps getting asked for copies of your recipes, think about making a Blurb Food Book.
This holiday season, make your gift recipients feel really special by making them something special. There really is a book for everyone.
The Blurb Gift Center is filled with ideas for creating truly personalized gifts for everypawdy on your list:

Blurb wishes you a happy and mobile Halloween!
Better yet, we hope you have a Hoppy Howloween!
As much as Halloween is supposed to be about “scary,” in reality, it’s a lot about “cute.” It’s about kids and dogs in costumes, creative pumpkin art, and way too much sugar for everyone involved—except for the pups, they can have the pumpkin!
One thing is for sure, Halloween is a holiday of sights and sounds. You’ll be taking lots of photos and video that you’ll want to share that very night, but also keep forever. And, since you’ll likely be busy greeting trick-or-treaters, putting on costumes, and rationing candy, you need an easy way to capture the night’s events.
That’s where Blurb mobile comes in.
Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create sharable online stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7×7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a very literal story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be a collection of photos.
Just take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.
Want a printed version of your story? Of course you do. Blurb’s Small Square books start at $12.99 for a 20-page softcover, and shipping is just $3.99.
So, whether you lean toward the scary or the cute or some awesome combination of the two—share your stories on Halloween night on your favorite social media sites with Blurb mobile. And then in a few weeks, get a beautifully bound photo book that you can look at for many Halloweens to come.
Have a happy, safe and mobile Halloween!
