I may cry while writing this post. I won’t mean to but when I start writing about my dogs, I get emotional. They are so important to me and my girls and they are an important part of our family. Imagining my life without any one of them is just too hard to do. With two of my four, yes, I said FOUR, getting on in age, I want to try to make every day special to them. I think all people should have pets. I really do and if I could rescue every single pet from a shelter and give them to people who will love them right back, I would. In fact, I got wind that a family I know is going to surprise their kids with a shelter dog this year and I am so excited about it, I had to put a gift bag together for them! As a dog mom, I think I have a pretty good idea as to what new dog families need! Number one on my list is something to help with pet stains. STAINMASTER® Carpet Pet Stain Remover is new at Target and I loaded up on it for me and my friend. Because, the truth is, even if you adopt a dog that is potty trained, accidents do happen so this is the perfect addition to any Pet Gift Basket!
Back to my dogs for a second. You may wonder how a single mom of three can possibly find the time and love for four pups. It is amazingly easy, actually, to have this many dogs and three kids. There is never a dull moment but I would not have it any other way.
All four of them have a story and if you follow me or One Eyed Jack on Instagram, you know them. Bud, my old man, was found at 5 weeks at a crawfish boil. Now 12, he is going deaf and starting to show signs of slowing down. But I can not even imagine the day we have to let him go over the rainbow bridge. He is such an amazing dog and there is no other like him anywhere!
Jack, who is quite the Instagram sensation, by the way, Piper and Joy all came from the Houston Beagle Rescue. I adopted Piper three years ago after noticing that Bud was sad and lonely after my other Beagle passed, and she has to be the sweetest dog I have ever known. All she wants is love. Luckily, we have tons to give.
Two years ago, I added Jack. Just like Joy, whom I adopted a few months ago, I had gone onto the rescue’s website to make a donation. Upon opening the page, their little faces screamed at me that they needed a home. Both deemed almost unadoptable, they have been an amazing addition to this family. My girls sleep with them, play with them, dress them up and even read stories to them. It really is heartwarming to see them loving them so deeply!
But, let’s face it, homes with dogs are prone to messiness. Stuffing from toys for the young ones, little accidents here and there for the older ones who just didn’t make it out of the doggy door fast enough. Dirt tracked in from paws on a rainy day. There is always something. So to help my friend maintain her clean home for her family while still incorporating their new dog, I added STAINMASTER® Carpet Pet Stain Remover to their gift basket. Using it is easy, which matters to a busy family!

I love that this is safe and effective and that it removes pet stains; eliminates odors and repels dirt. Forming a protective seal over the carpet when you use it means it cleans and protects. It leaves behind an invisible shield to repel dirt to protect against re-soiling, making it easier to clean next time. Plus, even though Pets and carpet aren’t always a perfect match, STAINMASTER® Carpet Pet Stain Remover lifts away tough pet stains and eliminates odors. Some other stain removers can leave a sticky residue that can attract dirt over time, but their breakthrough technology is designed to quickly clean on contact and repel dirt to protect against re-soiling to keep your carpet looking newer longer. And you can breathe easy thanks to our powerful ODOR REMOVE™technology, which starts to eliminate odors within minutes.
As a multiple dog mom, I can tell you that it really works!
Now onto the pet gift basket!
I want to encourage the new pet family to play with their dog, love their dog and to protect their carpet too.
- So I have added STAINMASTER® Carpet Pet Stain Remover in. I also added some fun toys that the new dog will no undoubtedly love!
- Adding treats, and a variety of them, is important too. Treats will help the dog trust and the kids relax with the dog!
- Don’t forget a good leash so the dog can go on walks immediately!
- Lastly, I added a travel water bottle. When the family wants to take the dog to the park or on vacation, they need to keep him hydrated. So a water bottle is essential!
I think this is the perfect pet gift basket! What would you add?
If you are looking to adopt a pet or someone you know is, add STAINMASTER® Carpet Pet Stain Remover to your must have list! You will be thankful you did!
How many pets do you have? I would love to hear their stories!
