It’s the holiday season! One of our favorite times of year, and a time where we are reminded that being part of Jax & Bones truly is a wonderful life.  

From our loyal customers, to our clients, collaborators and philanthropic organizations we partner with, there is so much to be thankful and grateful for. And at the very top of our gratitude list are our beloved besties. They are the ones who provide that unconditional love and friendship that is unlike anything else in our world. They help teach us about having care and consideration, and we always want to find ways to honor them. 

The 12 Dogs of Christmas pays homage to all dogs and we highlight some of our favorites we’ve seen and worked with this year. You fill our hearts with so much joy and thanks to you, we too know what it means to live a wonderful life. And who knows, next year, it could be your dog making the list!
