Made in the Hills – Man’s Best Friend

Dogs aren’t fussy, they’ll be deliriously happy with anything – even socks and a sweater!

November 19, 2013 | | Back Issues

Dogs aren’t fussy, but you can be on their behalf. They’ll be deliriously happy with anything – even socks and a sweater, like the adorable offerings by Personal Touches 1, available at the Orangeville Winter Market. For healthy treats and real dog food they’ll gobble up, drop by Dogs We Love 2 in Orangeville. Or for a gift you might enjoy more than Spot, consider a pet portrait in watercolour by Joan Gray 3, in oils by S. J. Pringle 4, or by this magazine’s own illustrator Shelagh Armstrong 5 or photographer Pam Purves 6.
