My dear friend, Magda, isn't a mother to a human baby, but she does love her furbaby like a child. She invited us to a get-together in her honor Mother's Day weekend, and I would feel so awkward showing up without a present. Got any suggestions? She's crazy about her dog, loves the color pink, and really, really, really (really) likes being out in the sun. Thanks bunches! Love, Mary Jensen-Stroehmann"
1. Doggie hair feathers ($15) Remember when everyone had bows in their dog's hair? That's so over. In 2011, it's all about accessorizing with hair feathers!
2. Louis Dog Pink Ribbon Dress ($47) Sure, pink dresses for dogs are everywhere. But pink dresses with attached pearl necklaces? WINNING!
3. Doggles Sunglasses ($20) Fido needs to protect his wittle doggy eyes during all those long hours in the hot sun, right?
4. Kitty (or Doggy) Wigs ($60) If you've ever thought to yourself, "Gee, I wish my pet was hairier" or "Gee, I wish my pet's hair wasn't such a lame color," then this is the product for you!
5. My First Louis Dog Carrier ($170) Purse or pet carrier? When you have to ask, that's when you know you've got a good, versatile piece.
6. Happy Trails Deluxe Pet Stroller ($135) Pets were made to walk on all fours. Except, you know, when they're tired and need to be pushed around in a stroller. It's perfect for when Pooch is acting up in the store and you need to exit in a hurry. "Mister, if you don't stop begging for Bacon Bits, we will march right out of this store and go home!"
7. Hot Doll for Dog (€149) If you're wondering, yes, this is what you think it is. Your dog craves companionship. Foster his or her (hey, female dogs do it too sometimes). . .needs. . .with a hunk of plastic in black or white.
8. Rear Gear Butt Cover ($5) Tired of looking at the exit for the poop factory? Cover it up with a Rear Gear Butt Cover! Laugh all you want, but you've got to be lightening-fast when stock is uploaded, because these babies sell out super quick. Otherwise, send her a convo to see if you can get a custom order.
9. Fabuleash ($12) Blinged-out collars are so a thing of the past. If you want to keep up with the (puppy) jet set, you've gotta have a blinged-out leash as well!
