10 Doggone Delightful Dog Calendars For 2011

Here's one difference between dog and cat lovers.  Cat lovers love cats; dog lovers love specific breeds of dogs.  Generalization?  Well, that's what calendar publishers are telling us, because they print far more breed specific calendars about dogs than cats.  I sent my dog Coca out digging for the doggone delightful ones and he came back with some - very proud of himself.

 

1. Rescues Rock The Runway 2011 Dog Wall Calendar

Wow! A fashion calendar that encourages rescue and also shares the stories of its models...  Rescues Rock is cute, funny, and heartwarming. Every picture tells a story....

Back again with words from the most fashionable English Bull dog we know, Zelda teaches us humans a few tricks (and that's why we're including this full-breed dog).  Zelda Wisdom 2011 Wall Calendar

4. The Dog Whisperer 2011 Wall Calendar

Acknowledging that every pet dog needs training, my pup found these portraits of Cesar Milan and the dogs he trained very admirable and Cesar's tips for humans 'a must.'  Cesar's Way: 2011 Dog Whisperer Wall Calendar.

5. Indognito, Canines In Costume, 2011 Dog Wall Calendar

Coca has a weak spot for dogs in digs, so he picked this one and put it on the top of his pile.  These guys look doggone cute, you must admit.  For those who love to dress their dogs, Indognito is the dog calendar for you!

6. Surf Dogs 2011 Wall Calendar

There's nothing as awesome to a beachcomber than to see a dog on a board. So, Coca and I thought we should include the original Surf Dogs calendar for all surfing and photography fans.  It's tough to get a good photo of a dog surfing! Proceeds from this calendar go to benefit various dog charities.  Surf's up!

7.  Painted Pups 2011 Dog Wall Calendar

I found this Painted Pups calendar on the British Cafe Press web site and thought it was too darling to overlook for this column.  After all, you have to live with your calendar all year, so it has to be worth waiting for a bit.   Great style!

8. Dogs of Rock 2011 Dog Wall Calendar

What a charmer!  Though they are two Jack Russell Terrier rock stars, this calendar is not really about the breed, it's about the humor that appeals to humans by putting dogs in human situations.  Dogs of Rock rocks!

9. Bad Dog 2011 Wall Calendar

Terribly funny, you get 365 dogs, a dog a day, with a message from the dog, like 'Mom, I left you a valuable message in the snow."  The Bad Dog calendar has been a hit for several years running.  You also get 12 free post cards from the Bad Dog series along with the calendar. Good dog, Coca!

10.  The New Yorker 2011 Dogs Wall Calendar

If you love ironic wit, there's no place better to find it but in the cartoons of The New Yorker magazine. And the New Yorker Dogs Wall Calendar brings the best of its dog humor to you every year in its full page cartoons.  The  New Yorker 2011 Cat Wall Calendar is also available.
