Some dog owners have parties for their pets. Many give their dogs gifts for Christmas and for their birthdays. And, even for just being "good" in between holidays.
When some dog lovers give birthday or holiday presents to friends and relatives, they give their own gifts as well as gifts "from" their dog. You'd be surprised how many dogs "shop"! (I believe they may be a substantial percentage of the hidden consumer.) I have received many a birthday or holiday gift from Buddy, Lexi and Fido!
