It's the time of year for indulging in delicious sweets and maybe an extra festive drink, but Maymo proves that even health food is beloved by dogs — any time of year. This silly pup has won our hearts over and over, proving we can't get enough of the adorable Lemon Beagle.

Keep your pup in great shape with these healthy low-fat dog biscuits, which are easier than you think to make. Instead of heading to the store for artisan treats, you can toss these together with simple organic ingredients that only cost a couple of bucks. Plus, you can easily tailor the biscuits to your pup's taste.
Free of sugar, oils, additives, and preservatives, these munchies are just the right thing to keep your loyal friend happy, healthy, and begging for more. Rather than using peanut butter as a base, these healthy low-fat dog biscuits are made with organic pumpkin puree and fresh spinach. Pumpkin is beneficial to your pup's digestive health, full of antioxidants, and aids in keeping your dog at his ideal weight. And spinach is packed with vitamins and iron.
Several airports across the country have finally realized that dogs really do make anything better — even being stuck in an airport. These airports are now supporting teams of trained dogs to walk the terminal to spread a little canine happiness.
The Wag Bigrade, certified therapy dogs and their volunteer handlers, can be found at San Francisco International starting in December. Donning vests with "Pet Me!" emblazoned on the sides, the dogs will calm the frazzled nerves of travelers courtesy of San Francisco SPCA's Animal Assisted Therapy program. And travelers are encouraged to interact with dogs and enjoy a quick little cuddle.
Other airports participating include Los Angeles International with the Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUP) Program, and AmbassaDogs at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. And there's the K-9 Ambassador Team walking the terminal at Miami International this holiday season.
Sure, it's not a voucher to a high-end hotel when your flight gets canceled, but a little time with a furry friend sure displaces stress and makes things just a little better. If you're flying through any of the above airports during December, make sure to keep an eye out for the helpful pups!
You might not think a cat and a bird would ever enjoy a cuddle together, which makes these unusual pet pairings that we discovered on Instagram and Flickr so special.

- A square meal: Make a plate with all the fixings for your four-legged friend. Chopped turkey without bones, stuffing, and mashed sweet potatoes are safe for your dog to eat. And if your pup enjoys the tart flavor of cranberries, toss a spoonful in the doggy dish, too.
- Doggie gobblers: You can also use leftover turkey to mix together treats, which are perfect as a meal or snack. Combine six ounces of cooked and chopped turkey with one cup mashed potatoes, one cup cooked carrots, two cups oats, and one large egg and blend until smooth. Lightly grease a muffin tin, spoon the mixture into cups, and bake for 40 to 45 minutes in a 350°F oven.

There's nothing cuter than a fluffy kitten or a floppy-eared pup, but senior pets are special in their own way. They've been by your side for years and years, are worn in all the right places, and are seriously loyal. November is Adopt Senior Pet Month, which makes Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines by Tom Cohen the perfect coffee table book or gift for your favorite dog-lover this holiday season.
As a comedy writer, Cohen pairs pictures of senior pups with crotchety phrases, capturing the essence of old dogs. And, of course, he takes a little liberty with creating backstories for the featured furry friends. It's hard not to chuckle while flipping through the book and reading phrases such as, "Pedro likes Old Spice and Sinatra," "Jack enjoys a hot cup of Sanka," and "Chet is still upset they cancelled Matlock."
Pick up a copy of Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines ($14) as a fun gift for any animal-loving friend or keep for yourself to enjoy over and over.
