Puppy Accessory Love at Blue Blood

I begged and pleaded for a puppy when I was a kid and somehow ended up with a tarantula named Terry instead.

Strange but true, and twenty-something years later I still don't have a dog. Unfortunately my lifestyle (small apartment, frequent travel) isn't very conducive to pets (ironically just about the only creature that's little and low maintenance enough to work in my current situation is a tarantula, but the older I get my affection toward big hairy spiders is just about nil). Anyway. Yesterday I came across this cute dog accessories company called Blue Blood, and I just bookmarked their site for when my day finally comes. They specialize in collars and leashes done up in really chic, graphic prints (everything from preppy stripes to Greek keys to Liberty-esque florals), and plush beds like this kelly green one, which I'm pondering using as a floor pillow in the short term.
