As a dog mom of two pups, I love receiving gifts that are actually gifts for my dogs. Nothing makes me quite as happy as seeing Eloise and Lou Lou play with a new toy or enjoy a special treat. Double-points for doggy gifts that are made in Maine by local businesses. These are a few of my favorite picks for Maine-made and inspired gifts for my four-legged pals.

How about an Orbee-Tuff Buoy for the playful pup? Orbee toys are nearly indestructible and a staple for my two-dog household. Something about these rubbery, colorful toys are favorites for my dogs.
