Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)

Kathryn Budig and Kate Fagan are a budding power couple. From Budig’s book club and wellness platform to Fagan’s numerous writings and new podcast, Off The Looking Glass, the two partners cast a wide net of cultural relevance. With everything they’ve accomplished together, potentially nothing is more impressive (or at least cute) than the life they’ve given their two dogs, Ashi and Keonah. At 13 and 15 years respectively, each fall under the often overlooked demographic of senior dogs — commonly seen as less adoptable in shelters, many struggle to find homes. It’s a cause that Budig and Fagan have long advocated for and brought awareness to. So what do two people who have achieved so much gift to those who have given them even more? From reusable diapers to inflammation-relieving oil, Budig and Fagan gave us a little insight into what they’re planning for their senior dogs this holiday.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
