Let's talk Pets...
Okay I admit it I do not actually have a real pet yet, but I am pushing for a cat... but I am lucky enough thanks to my dear friends Brandy and Lauren, to have been given Chocolate Chip and Coconut. I absolutely love them.
I have also seen so many wonderful stuffed animals that make perfect doll sized pets, Madelon was recently in my home town of Montreal on vacation and she picked up the most adorable little dog for her doll play collection and it is her photos that have inspired today's post. Tin Tin, named after the movie, is the little white dog in the photo above. I love how this photo of Tin Tin and Pepper's first meeting went.
So this got me to thinking about some posts I have done in the past relating to re purposing your own stuffed animals, dollar store and thrift store finds into wonderful doll play pet sets.

I have also run across some great American Girl Doll boxed Pets for sale and shipped free on The Book Depository. Offered at around $25 and shipped free to your door this is a great way for those of us not living in the USA to come by these wonderful pets. Click here for listing.
(Check the book depository under American Girl and click on the stationary tab at the right to see their selection of mini dolls too, a great deal and free shipping!)
Saige's new horse will set you back $94 but I have also fallen in love with the ones you can get from Target and Walmart for more then half that price.

I think it is time I got a real pet of my own and I am so thankful to my friends who made it possible for me to add American Girl Doll pets to my collection.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and that you will share with me your thoughts, comments and photos of your dolls and their pets.
