jigsaw-puzzle format ($14.99 from Newt's Games). Trivia alert: when you hear a reference to "the Coolidge Dogs" or "A Bold Bluff," that's the painting they mean. "A Bold Bluff" is the title and C.M. Coolidge is the artist. Thanks, internet!When I say "pet-related art," what's the first thing you think of? It's "Dogs Playing Poker," isn't it? Of course it is. And that actually doesn't make a bad gag gift; it's also available in
But you can find slightly more up-market art and decor that celebrates the animals in your life without going too kitsch. "Maggie" and "Oatmeal," a Lab and a Cavachon respectively, are made of recycled newspaper "fur" and wooden eyes and noses ($198, Olive & Cocoa).
Can't spare the floor space? Pet blueprint wall art might be just the thing ($185, Uncommon Goods). It's got a vintage vibe; you can specify a dog OR cat breed -- or "American Mutt."
For the more budget-minded, consider a poster from Andy Warhol's "Cats" series. They start at $7.99 on AllPosters.com, and come in every possible color and size.
