Remember that time I told you that I was thinking about getting a dog? Well I haven’t gotten one yet. I’ve been debating whether I really want one or not. Then I returned from Portugal and started browsing through my pictures from the trip when I noticed that this happened photo 1 (5) And this photo 5 (1) And this photo 1 (6)   And this photo 2 (4) And I came to the conclusion that yes, I must really want a dog.

Since I love peanut butter it's pretty much a guarantee that my fluffy friend would devour this Puppy Cake Wheat-free Peanut Butter Cake Mix and Frosting. Like owner, like dog, right? I wonder if he would share... 2. Dog treats part 2. If I'm baking a puppy cake for my dog I must make sure I at least bake it in a shape my little friend will eat. Enter this K9Cakery Silicone Cake Pan, 7-Inch by 10-Inch, Small. My dog is going to LOVE me. 3. An outfit. This Rasta Imposta Cupcake Dog Costume, Small would be a perfect choice if only for the fact that my doggie and I would match. cut cupake4. Chew toy. This Spunkeez Cupcake looks almost good enough to eat. 5. Dog bed. Or a dog couch. Frankly, this Fantasy Furniture Mini Sofa Black and Brown Pet Bed is nicer than my couch. 6. Chew toys. Did you know about my affection for squirrels? I think I'd get my dog on the squirrel bandwagon with this American Classic Squirrel, Smallplush toy. Although I also love giraffes so this Ethical 5706 Skinneeez Giraffe Stuffing-Less Dog Toy, 14-Inch would be pretty tempting. 7. Collar.

For fear of forgetting to refill my dog's water bowl I think I'd spring for a system such as this PetSafe Healthy Pet Water Station, Large, PFD17-11856. I wouldn't want my laziness to dehydrate my dog. 9. Food bowl. This chic and modern Replus Meshidai Elevated Diner Size: Small, Color: Black food dish is just way too stylish to pass up.
