We've all caught bugs and been as sick as a dog. We've all had days where we've felt doggone tired. We've all walked into work like a bone-afide wreck with a major case of the Monday blues. We've all been sick of the 9-5 and wondered how we're going to make it to Friday. Wouldn't those days be better if you received a sweet surprise from a friend? Here's our list of pawsents you can surprise your dog-loving friends with when they've had a puppin' awful day! :)
1. Dog Bone Cookie Cutter
If your friend loves to cook or enjoys cookies (Who doesn't fall into at least 1 of those 2 categories? :) ), get her a dog bone cookie cutter or bake her some dogalicious cookies!
2. Doggie Howser Flowers
Flowers are always welcome! Show your friend that you're thinking of her (and her love for all-things-pup!) with a bouquet of buds.
3. Paint Your Own Pet Bowl
Getting creative is a great way to unwind. Surprise your friend with an adorable paint your own pet bowl set like the one shown here.
4. Fleece Throw Blanket
Sometimes the only thing that can make a day better is curling up under a soft blanket and hiding. :)
5. Dog Wine Charms
After a lousy day, your friend might want to chill with a bottle of wine. Join her and adorn your wine glasses with cute doggy-inspired wine charms.
6. Dog Wine Stopper
As long as you're already bringing over wine, why not bring a pup-centric wine stopper, too?
7. Dalmatian Dog Mug
Make sure your pal starts tomorrow on the right foot (or paw?) with her very first sip of coffee. Surprise her with a dog mug like this one.
8. Dog Journal
If your friend is the artsy type, she just might want to write about her woes. Give her a journal so she can let it all out.
9. Can or Bottle Holder
Sometimes the only thing between a miserable day and a so-so day is a bit of caffeine. A can holder with a soda inside is a wonderful pooched-out pick-me-up.
10. The Bark Magazine
Some enjoyable reading material at the end of the day is underrated. Head to your local bookstore or to Amazon.com and get your friend a copy of The Bark Magazine (or an entire subscription) and encourage her to sit down to relax.
11. PetSmart Gift Card

How about a little retail therapy? Pick up your friend and cheer her up with a surprise shopping spree for her furry BFF at PetSmart!

12. Frosty Paws

Dessert! Dessert can be an amazing cure-all! Frosty Paws for Fido and Ben & Jerry's for your friend is the way to go.
