Stock Your Pet's 'Stache With PetSugar's November Must Haves

Nov 1 2012 - 12:00pm

As we head into the waning months of 2012, it's easy to get caught up in the hullabaloo of the start of the holiday season. But rather than allowing it to be a stressful time for your pet, get him involved in the celebrations! Between Election Day flair, Movember mustaches, and Thanksgiving turkey, there are plenty of opportunities for your pet to represent this festive eleventh month.

Patriotic Bow Tie Dog Collar

Don't forget to vote on Tuesday! And while you get to walk away from the polls with a snazzy "I voted" sticker, unfortunately, your pooch is still ineligible to mark a ballot. Before he drums up a suffrage movement of his own, collar him with this patriotic bow tie [2] ($33) to give him a part in the most important civic day of the year. It's also an appropriate accessory on Veterans Day, Nov. 11!

Turkey Dinner

Marshmallowy yams and buttery brined turkey might be what we're looking forward to on Thanksgiving, but all that fat, salt, and sugar can wreak havoc on your pup's tummy. We've found a few alternatives that he can gobble-gobble throughout the day to avoid the belly-aching at night. Try dehydrated turkey rollover treats [3] ($11), made from turkey breast, spinach, egg, and flaxseed meal, and Dr. Harvey's Sweet Potate'r Chews [4] ($14), containing nothing but that tasty tuber.

Moody Pet Humunga Stache Dog Toy

Thanksgiving isn't the only important holiday we celebrate this month. Movember is a month-long movement paying tribute to all the dudes who have battled men's cancers, and your pooch can demonstrate his tongue-in-cheek support with this Moody Pet Humunga Stache Ball Dog Toy [5] ($40).

Red Dingo Reflective Cat Collar

Nov. 4 marks the end of daylight savings time, and while plenty of dog accessories are lit up with reflective strips to battle the dark, let's not forget about our cats! This Red Dingo reflective cat collar [6] (from $9) keeps Kitty safe in the waning light, comes in a multitude of fashionable colors, and boasts a fun, fishy motif for brighter times.

A Letter to My Dog

When the November weather keeps you and your pup indoors, curl up with the heartfelt book A Letter to My Dog [7] ($25). Award-winning photographer Robin Layton taps celebrities, friends, and their loyal and lovable pups for a volume of moving portraits accompanied by loving letters from pet parent to pooch. Read touching (and funny) words from Oprah Winfrey [8], Chelsea Handler, Hilary Duff [9], and many more, and use them to inspire a letter to your own best fur-friend!
