Pets: sure, lesbians and gay men are having children. But we still treat our pets like our firstborn. Here are some gift suggestions for the loved one who has a precious pet companion.

Dog Boas ($25, High Maintenance Bitch)

Formal Attire Tuxedo ($20, PetSmart)

Santa Suit ($9.99, Companion Road)

Some people find putting a bandanna on a dog to be sacrilege, but in the era of Bruiser Woods, anything goes. For those dress-up holiday events, your guy can get his pet dolled up with a boa by the cleverly named High Maintenance Bitch--there are a variety of colors so he can coordinate his dog with his tie. For that upcoming dinner party, nothing says Best in Show like the Formal Attire Tuxedo. Last but not least, for the big holiday itself, how about a doggy Santa Suit? Bulldogs were bred to wear red.

SpongeBob SquarePants Aquarium Set ($29.99, Happy Dog Toys) There's some sort of mystical connection between gay folks and SpongeBob SquarePants, star of the hit Nickelodeon cartoon series. Now you can spruce up your dear queer's fish tank by bringing the giggling hero into his home (and closer to his heart) with the Bikini Bottom aquarium.

The Carry Den ($79.99, Creature Leisure) Kozy K-9 Seat Blanket ($94.95, Kozy K-9) Drinkwell Pet Fountain ($49.95, Veterinary Ventures) File these gifts under "Open Me Early." Everyone travels over the holidays, so why not help your pet-owning pals keep their little one comfortable while in transit? The Carry Den is a smartly constructed travel case for pets that is stylish and functional, and it fits under an airplane seat. If they're driving over the river and through the woods to visit family, their pet will be comfy with the Kozy K-9 Seat Blanket, which protects the backseat from becoming an oasis for hair balls. And for anybody who is leaving their four-legged pal at home, the Drinkwell Pet Fountain gives pets the impression that they're drinking from a running stream--and more important, it dispels the impression that the toilet is a fresh mountain spring.

Soft Paws Nail Caps ($17.95, Smart Practice) Soft Paws Nail Caps are safe, adhesive claw caps for kitties that will keep your friend's furniture free from harm without her having to declaw or clip her cat's natural nails. The nail caps even come in a variety of colors, including clear.
