What to get for the animal lover who has everything: A silver- or gold-plated Milk Bone

December 7, 2010 |  5:25 am


Say you're an animal lover with a burning desire to spend your money on something, and you've already got your own reindeer-dung necklace. What new purchasing frontiers are left to conquer?

Don't fret, dear shopper. Now you can add a silver- or gold-plated Milk Bone to your collection of animal-related oddities. As our colleague David A. Keeps explains at The Times' home and garden blog, L.A. at Home, California design company Still Life Gifts has licensed the famous dog biscuit and turned it into a festive ornament.

The decorative treats, with prices starting around $20, are made from real Milk Bones, which are preserved and electroplated before being hung on a satin ribbon.

Because the ornaments are plated, they don't smell like a treat, so your dog's unlikely to try to make a meal of one. "I offered it to three family dogs and none of them bit," Michale Dancer, co-owner of Still Life Gifts, told The Times.
