Pet Winter Gifts

This time of year is the best time to buy your furry friend any kind of thing you want to buy for them. For one, the holidays are here. And two, everything is on sale at stores. I bet you can find a sweater for you dog for less than five dollars. Usually sweaters are between ten to thirty dollars a piece when they are not on sale. I bought a pair of doggy pajamas for Darcy (Shih-Tzu) off of ebay for about twelve dollars. To us, that is a big bargain because I have looked at a pair of pajamas at a pet store, and they were between twenty and thirty dollars each.
Good Luck on you Bargain Hunting for your furry friends. :)
