I had a dog when I was little. He was a black lab named Barney, and he was extremely protective of me and my family. Since then, though, I’ve never had another dog nor really had a desire for one. I’ve stuck to cats, rabbits, and fish. I volunteer with a shelter where I get to spend time with senior dogs, so it’s not like they’re not in my life at all. I would not be surprised if, at some point in the future, we consider a family dog — my daughter is dog-obsessed, particularly over dachshunds. But whether or not we end up adopting a pup for the crew, one thing is for sure: I can always pop an adorable dog bookmark inside my current read and know that good boy or girl will make sure I do not lose my place.

Whether it’s April when you read this post or not, know that April is when we get to celebrate all things dogs with Dog Appreciation Month. It was only fitting to highlight some great dog bookmarks to honor that.

Let’s take a woof — sorry, look — at some of the best dog bookmarks you can snag over on Etsy. Whether you love a little dog or a big one, there’s something here for you.
