I'm dedicating this post today to my mom and my sister, Brooke, who would both, without hesitation, stop their car in the middle of a busy intersection to save an animal from getting run over. Who both have adopted more stray (and strange) pets than anyone I know. Who both stop others from killing bugs, insisting instead that they be carried outside safely. And even though I don't share their particular overwhelming affinity for any and all creatures, I admire (often from afar) their selfless, unconditional, and, frankly, brave acts of kindness and love. If you, too, are lucky enough to have people like this in your corner, celebrate them with some of these awesome gifts, perfect for the animal lover in your life!...Hers: Dapper Animal Plates, $8 each, West Elm Embroidered Krishna Dog Bed, $98, Free People Tiny Confessions By Christopher Rozzi, $14, Urban Outfitters Poppy Polka Dot Collar, $78, Coach Cooperative Animal Face iPad Case, $29, Urban Outfitters Measuring Hedgies, $50, Anthropologie Yumi Fox Jumper, $78, House of Frasier Enchanted Forest Print, $38, Anthropologie Foxy Fold Down Boots, $39, Accessorize Horse Head Bangle, $38, C.

And P.S., the website had some major crash issues tonight, so if you are noticing any strange formatting or broken links, etc., please excuse the mess for the time being. I'm working on it and hope to be as good as new (and hopefully improved!) very soon. :)
