A Weekly Round-Up of Rover-Related Links from Around the Web

Spotted Dog Bakery Gingerbread House on The Dapple Dog Lifestyle Blog

Do you realize there are only 18 days until Christmas? We’re fully into the December insanity over here with get-togethers and shopping and decorating galore this weekend. It’s wonderful and overwhelming at the same time.

But tonight, I’ll be staying home for puppy cuddles, Christmas movies, and a big cup of peppermint coco because I have a whole lot of holiday cards to address—both for the pups and for me and Josh. Who knew we’d get to the point where our household would need two separate holiday cards? Anyway, if you want one of the pups’ cards, DM me on Instagram and I’ll send one your way!

In other news, here’s our list of links we loved this week. Enjoy, and happy weekend!

Really enjoying Rover.com’s annual list of top dog names and dog naming trends. Did you know that royal dog names are up 11% this year? Also, who are these people naming their dogs “Soy”?
