A Gift Guide for Your Furry Friends
There is an “unofficial” employee roster at the Halton Pardee + Partners offices who are the most loyal team members and without them, the office vibe wouldn’t be as cheery! It’s our beloved pooches who visit us on a weekly basis, giving us the unconditional love and support we need, especially on those humpdays! While you’re shopping for your perfect pooch this holiday season, keep these finds in mind to show your love and loyalty.
One of the best reasons to own a dog is to accessorize them. Just like us, the possibilities are endless to make functional items in your life fun — showcasing you + your furry friend’s personality!
