Kiehl’s throws dogs a bone with its new canine grooming line

My family jokes that, as the baby of the family, I'm secretly jealous of my parents' two shih tzus for stealing the spotlight with their bunny-cute looks and irresistible, big-eyed stares.

My family jokes that, as the baby of the family, I'm secretly jealous of my parents' two shih tzus for stealing the spotlight with their bunny-cute looks and irresistible, big-eyed stares. And while I may secretly long to spend my days, like them, lounging around my parents' house and napping on the new couch, I'm actually just as much of a fan of Chloe and Uma (such late-'90s dog names!) as everyone else in my family is. Which is why, this year, I'm stuffing the pups' stockings with Kiehl's brand-new “For Your Dog” line — including a “Cuddly-Coat Grooming Shampoo,” a “Cuddly-Coat Conditioning Rinse” and a “Spray-N-Play Cleansing Spritz.” Tested by dog groomers and packaged with Kiehl's signature minimalist labels, they'll leave Chloe and Uma — or Caesar or Brutus or Spot — smelling as sweet as they are. Which is just how the star of the family should look.

$12 to $16 at Kiehl's, 1737 Walnut Street, 215- 636-9936; kiehls.com.
