James Thurber Reading Dog Pin

Current count shows I have listed seven stocking stuffers for cat lovers, but only two for dog lovers. Time to even up the score, say the canine enthusiasts! So here it is. At this price, it's definitely a Friday luxury item, but oh! I love this James Thurber reading dog pin from The Library Shop at the New York Public Library. It conveys both affection and humor with a few simple lines, and for me it combines two of my own loves: dogs and books.

The web page says it can worn as a pin or a pendant, and it has been cast in sterling silver via the lost-wax method (whatever that is). At approximately one inch in diameter, it's just the right size for an extra special stocking stuffer.

What: James Thurber Reading Dog Pin
Where: The Library Shop website
How much (as of today's post): $50.00 ($45.00 for members) (plus shipping)
