You can choose from hundreds of stock designs or have a photo of your pet recreated in embroidery.

If you're going this route, keep in mind that the last day to order stock embroidery for Christmas delivery is Dec. 15, 2011. Allow two weeks additional time for embroidery from a photo.
- Treat your pet or a pet owner to Solid Gold Northland's holistic pet food. Each of their brands contains natural ingredients that bring balance back to your pet's system.
