December 8th: Pup and Cup

This gift already has a winner! Check out the Decemberfest calendar for today's gift.


My dog, Bandit, just got a haircut a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to make sure that he looked nice in family pictures for the next few weeks, and I really like the silly bows that the dog groomers put on his ears. Bandit is definitely photogenic with his new haircut (when I can get him to look at the camera) but he's got a problem: It's too cold in December for a dog without a thick coat of fur. One of today's Decemberfest gifts would solve Bandit's problem — the other gift wouldn't really interest him, but I think you'll like it. 


Canine Comforter

Anne Uden makes a number of different products with high-quality boiled wool, a material that is both durable and comfortable. She sells her wares in a small shop in Oldenburg, Germany and online in her Jimdo store. Anne has kindly offered to give away two dark blue dog blankets. In addition, the names of the winners' dogs will be hand stitched on the blankets. 


I know that my dog will be quite jealous of the winners, so when you share this link with you friends, don't let him see!

Delicious Decor

Martina Morlok is a graphic designer who spends her free time painting. She has a distinct style which features simple, unadorned objects painted on various pieces of textured wood. The natural beauty of the canvas contrasts the stark allure of the objects that Martina depicts with acrylic paint. For Decemberfest, Martina is offering the piece of artwork pictured below: "Espresso Cup."

    My dog, Roxie, would love this comforter! She gathers all her toys and plays on a large beach towel in my living room. What an upgrade this blanket would be for her!
