You've got plenty of company!
A recent survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association found that 56 percent of dog owners and 42 percent of cat owners plan to buy presents for their pets.
And The Early Show's resident veterinarian, Dr. Debbye Turner, shared ideas Wednesday for unique items for your favorite four-legged friend, as part of the program's continuing Holiday Buying Guide.
They range from clothes to toys to beds to green offerings to -- wigs! There's even a GPS pet locator among them!

WIGS FOR DOGS
Wigmaker to the stars Ruth Regina is now designing hair pieces for dogs: braids, curls, and extensions that can be dyed, highlighted and styled to order for pampered pets. She started making wigs when her niece asked her to make a wig for her basset hound, Jester. One order turned into a series of engagements, and Wiggles Dog Wigs was born. Wiggles takes the same care and provides the same quality she does for her two-legged customers as she does for those "on all furs."
