If there are cat parents and dog parents, then it follows there are cat kids and dog kids...right? Well, dog kids, this one's for you! Here's a whole lot of lovely stuff with which to fit out your most excellent dog-loving room.
Do you know what your cat or dog most looks forward to in life? Just a whiskers width after a tummy rub and your loving attention – and maybe tied for a walk to the park for canines and laser pointer playtime for felines – is the sound of kibbles being poured or a can of food being opened...

Whether vacant by choice or by chance, I love this geeky idea for decorating an unused hearth.
