Posted

When you’re making a list and checking it twice, don’t leave out the furry friends in your life! We’re spotlighting three South County shops that make it easy when it comes to spoiling your pets, and for finding fun accessories for animal-lovers.

INDIGO ELEPHANT

Resident Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Eloise makes a beguiling model for Indigo Elephant’s range of hand-knitted, pure wool dog sweaters, sourced from Peru by stylish owner Jenn Keilty. “A boutique for the unique,” the Westerly shop’s selection of eclectic lifestyle finds for humans extends to self-care for four-legged patrons, too. Keilty stocks Fox & Hound’s dog shampoo in warming winter scents like Argan & Amber, and Norfolk Natural Living’s dog cologne in Coastal Walk fragrance, a spot-on choice for Rhody rovers. 2 Broad Street, Westerly

THE PURPLE COW

This family-owned gift emporium has been delighting South Kingston customers for 35 years and offers plenty of pet-themed gems. Locals love their South County mugs and portable cups depicting a Black Lab at the Narragansett Towers, while party people may enjoy the wine markers with Winer Dogs and Wine Lives cats curling at the base of the stem. Other fun stocking stuffers include Daisy the Dachshund ceramic planter, a wind-up Pug in a Peanut toy, Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure, and canine or feline sleep masks, socks, and clocks. There’s even an accessory for your camera phone that clips a dog treat just above the lens for perfect pet portraits. 205 Main Street, Wakefield

SERENDIPITY

“Welcome! No need to knock, we know you’re here – The Dogs” is just one of the hilarious handmade-in-Rhode-Island signs available at Wickford’s beloved gift boutique. Shopping for a friend who likes festive tipple? Choose the “It’s not drinking alone if the dog is home” wine cup. And for pet parents with gourmet skills? Fable & Sage’s flour sack tea towel features a dog silhouette and the warning: “If it hits the floor it’s gone for sure.” Owner Melissa Beckwith also offers the ideal solution for when your pet pal hops down from your lap, leaving you feeling the chill – Greenwich Bay hot packs. These flannel-covered pouches can be warmed in the microwave and come in a variety of prints, including cartoon dogs and a pastel pink Sleep is Purrrrfect cat design. 3 Main Street, Wickford
