family Christmas photo or from the holiday shopping list,” said Dustin

season will be extra special,” said Tonkey Bear’s pet parent, Christine
Park of Edmonton, Alberta.

    loving homes, and the Luv-A-PetTM line featuring Chance,
    Lucky, XL
    Pound PuppiesTM
    , holiday apparel and plush throws is a
    great way to support this important cause. Ten percent of proceeds
