Dog Bookends: Terriers, Dachshunds and More

Dog bookends are the be-all, end-all gift for someone who loves dogs and books. Since I love both, I couldn’t resist posting this article. I still read most books on paper, and bookends really come in handy around my house and on my desk. They’re great for keeping cookbooks from falling over, or on a dining room table as a whimsical centerpiece. Here are the best ones I found.
