Share your voice 0 Richard Clark/Getty Images Dog lovers tend to be demonstrative — not only do we shower our furry friends with attention, fancy dog food and gourmet dog treats, we often like to announce our devotion to the world at large, or at least appreciate a few Fido-themed tchotchkes. If you’re one of us — or know someone who is — these are some of the best gifts for dog lovers we could fetch (with an emphasis on kitchen-related objects since we are Chowhounds, after all).And if you need an excuse to snag one, what better day than National Dog Day (Aug. 26)?Disclosure: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured here. Grounds & Hounds coffee subscription: $14/month Amazon Love coffee almost as much as you love corgis?

So these kitchen towels are clearly extra cute and your favorite French bulldog fan or pet-having hipster (maybe that’s you?) will proudly display them. See at AmazonDog dishcloths: 2 for $10 Amazon The irony of this pick is that it’s usually your dog that’s creating the mess, not cleaning it.

They’re also a fetching way to portion appropriately themed frozen treats for your dog.See at AmazonDachshund chopstick rests: 5 for $14 Amazon One more for the wiener fans. You’ve heard of giving your dogs a rest, but now you can rest your chopsticks on these adorable silver dachshunds.

See at AmazonHaute Diggity Dog Muttini Bar Collection plush wine bottle toy: $14 Amazon Speaking of wine, while you’re enjoying your own, throw your dog a bone — or rather, a wine bottle, in plush toy form. You can play doggy sommelier too. For instance, if this “Cavalier Sauvignon” from “Napaw Valley” doesn’t seem like it’d do it for the dog in question, go with a “Woof Clicquot” squeaky toy instead. See at Amazon’Corki’ wine stopper: $8 Amazon We judge (ever so slightly) those who are in need of a wine stopper, but if you can’t finish a bottle (blasphemy), you may as well plug it with something adorable. And frankly, what’s more adorable than a Corgi?See at AmazonBowser Beer: 3 for $15 Amazon Conversely, if you and your dog prefer beer, this nonalcoholic drink for dogs is made from malt barley and glucosamine, which is great for maintaining healthy joints. Word of caution, though: reviews are mixed; some dogs reportedly loved it, while others of the Spuds MacKenzie persuasion probably would have preferred a Bud Light. See at AmazonPetcube Bites Wi-Fi pet camera and treat dispenser: $249 Walmart This Wi-Fi-enabled pet camera and treat dispenser lets you stay connected to your pup even when you’re at the office (working hard so your dog can have a better life, of course). It lets you see 1080p HD video of your dog (or cat), and even talk to them and remotely throw treats. Other features include night vision, sound and motion alerts and an optional cloud recording service so you can access stored video — honestly, this almost doubles as home security, in case your dog is not so much about guarding the house as it is about lazing around it.

DUCSU polling stations to be set up in dormitories. File PhotoDhaka University (DU) authorities on Tuesday fixed the age limit at 30 years for the candidates of the elections to DU Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) and hall unions that are going to be held on 11 March after 28 years.Students who enrolled in the university through honours admission tests and are currently pursuing Honours, Masters’ and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) courses can contest the elections.The decisions were taken at a syndicate meeting of the university on Tuesday with DU vice chancellor professor Md Akhtaruzzaman in the chair.“The syndicate also decided to install the polling stations in all the dormitories like the previous elections,” Syndicate member and law faculty dean professor Rahmat Ullah told news agency UNB.Students of the evening programme and affiliated colleges cannot participate in the elections, he added.The syndicate also amended some posts, including common room and cafeteria affairs secretary and international affairs secretary.Welcoming the syndicate decisions, Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) DU unit president Sonjit Chandra Das said, “We hope they’ll publish the full schedule of the election very soon and properly conduct it.”Bangladesh Chhatra League is the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League.Meanwhile, Bangladesh Chhatra Union DU unit president Foez Ullah protested the decision to set up polling stations at dormitories and demanded changing the decision.”We demand that the polling booths be set up in academic buildings as ruling party’s student wing controls the dormitories.”
APThe entrance to the San Jacinto River Waste Pits site is seen, Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, in Channelview, Texas. The Environmental Protection Agency says an unknown amount of a dangerous chemical linked to birth defects and cancer may have washed downriver from a Houston-area Superfund site during the flooding from Hurricane Harvey. EPA said Thursday night it has ordered the companies responsible for the San Jacinto River Waste Pits site to immediately address damage to a protective cap of fabric and rock intended to keep sediments highly contaminated with dioxins from spreading. (AP Photo/John L. Mone)The EPA says it has reached an agreement with two companies that will remove more than 200-thousand cubic yards of toxic waste from the San Jacinto River Waste Pits. The EPA says its agreement with the International Paper Company and McGinnes Industrial Maintenance will cost $115 million.In an emailed statement, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said the agreement marks the next step in his commitment to the people of Harris County to expedite the remediation of the San Jacinto Waste Pits site.“EPA will ensure that the remedial design removes all the contamination as quickly and safely as possible and permanently protects the health and safety of the surrounding communities and the San Jacinto River,” Pruitt said.The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will help install engineering controls to keep the site safe before excavation begins. The waste from a paper mill was first pumped into the pits in the mid-1960s and is contaminated with dioxins. The chemical compounds are highly toxic and can cause cancer and reproductive and developmental problems. The remediation will take nearly 2 ½ years to complete. The companies responsible for the clean-up have previously opposed the plan. They say the cap on the pits is secure and attempts to remove the material could result in a harmful spill.Run-off from the San Jacinto River ends up in Galveston Bay. The Galveston Bay Foundation in a statement said it applauds the clean-up plan. Share
