The foremost indicator that you are a dog (or cat) person is, of course, the existence of a dog (or cat) in your home. Providing a loving abode for your miniature schnauzer or dachshund (or cat) certainly shows you care. But what really sets you apart from other animal-lovers is the presence of dog (or cat) accessories in your home. Nothing says “you belong here, Fluffy” like surrounding your pet with reminders of their love and acceptance. Fun cat prints on a pillow help your pet know he or she is welcome on the couch. A puppy paper-towel holder shows you’ll forgive him or her for unexpected little messes. Even salt-and-pepper shakers or wine aerators can, somehow, hopefully, signify your allegiance to man’s best friend (or cats). Go all-in with these delightful pet knick-knacks.
