Sooooo, William and Kate are getting married this Friday. Perhaps you’ve heard. I’m not sure if the royal Corgis will have a prominent role in the ceremony (not sure if Westminster Abbey is dog-friendly and all), but check out these cool custom handmade cake toppers featuring brides, grooms, and dogs.

You might have seen Rigel Stuhmiller’s letterpressed stationery before, either right here on phetched, or maybe on the Today show, Apartment Therapy, or Daily Candy. In an effort to help Save the Children with support efforts in earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged Japan, Rigel is currently donating all profits from her sales to the organization, with generous donors matching her donations up to 300%.

Rigel says:

As most people will know, many coastal regions of Japan were devastated by the recent tsunami. Over the past decade I have met many Japanese agricultural students from these affected regions through my work on Chino Nojo Farms in San Diego. Many of these students’ hometowns have been severely affected by the tsunami.

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need in the United States and around the world. They work with other organizations, governments, non-profits and a variety of local partners while maintaining independence without political agenda or religious orientation. 90% of all expenditures go towards program services.

Check out the fun doggie designs in Rigel’s shop. She’s running her fundraiser through 12 a.m. March 22nd.

I have seen Knit Your Own Dog eeeeeeverywhere lately, from web sites to The Bark to People magazine. (YES I read it sometimes in the checkout line, OKAYYYY?) I’m learning how to knit, and I just finished a scarf I started in, oh, November, so I totally feel like I’m ready to tackle basset hounds and poodles and the like.

Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne’s Knit Your Own Dog contains “easy-to-follow” patterns for knitting 25 breeds of dogs. You can fetch it from Amazon.

I’m telling you, the next person who reminds me how many shopping days remain until Christmas gets my knuckles in their teeth.

Obviously I’m rolling in Christmas spirit.

Once I actually find some gifts, I’d love to wrap them in this pretty puppy paper.

Vintage Dog & Bones reversible gift wrap and Chilly Dogs recycled wrapping paper are available from The Container Store.

Let me tell you this: phetched has standards. phetched has substance. phetched does not endorse any type of flagrant exploitation. No siree.

What’s that? Hot guys and baby animals? Oh HELLS yes.

The 2011 Hot Guys and Baby Animals calendar features awesome photography of, you guessed it, hot guys and baby animals. Partial proceeds go to benefit the San Franscisco SPCA and other animal rescue organizations.

So it’s for a good cause, which makes it totally OK.

You can fetch the calendar as well as prints and e-cards here.

Go ahead. You know you want to look.

So, it’s the holiday season and all. I haven’t bought a single gift. I will not panic. I WILL NOT PANIC.

Anyone want to know what to get meeeee? I love these clever doggie-inspired tees from peticotees, members of Etsy for Animals.

Tail wags to Sarah for the find!

I’m crazyface about my iPhone, and I’m not embarrassed to admit it. It’s great having email right at your fingertips, wherever you are, and I get an unbelievable amount of joy taking fakey instamatic photos and uploading them to Facebook. But I think the crux of my love affair with my iPhone lies in the fact that with it by my side, I will never, ever again be bored (as long as I’m in an AT&T service area). Line at the grocery store? Twitter is there to amuse me. Waiting in the airport? Doodle Jump and the New York Times are there to entertain me. Oil change taking forever and a day? Well, now I have puppies to ogle.

There’s a new iPhone app (developed by WireBear) featuring THE DOG‘s squeaky cute, immensely popular photography. Available from the iTunes store for just $1.99, THE DOG for iPhone contains breed and care information for 92 breeds (including rare and lesser-known breeds) –  information about grooming, exercise, and trainability. Dog profiles can be sorted and arranged by characteristics like shedding level, activity needs, size, and stranger friendliness.

Or, if you’re like me, you’ll enjoy yourself just squealing over the puppy photos.

Visit iTunes for more information on THE DOG for iPhone (currently only available for iPhone — sorry, Droidians).

So, have you started your holiday shopping yet? Of course you have. Because you’re organized. You’re always prepared (like a Girl Scout). You’re in control (like Janet, “Ms. Jackson” if you’re nasty).

Or you’re like me and you save it all for the last minute, just to make it more traumatic harrowing nightmarish exciting.

Got a Westie lover on your list? Here you go.

Bentley The Westie Bookends are available at Anthropologie. I spotted them over at Barkzilla.

Know a lab lover?

Etsy shop The Lab (based in Naperville, IL) is loaded with legions of — you guessed it — labs.

Labs in black, yellow, and chocolate adorn handmade baby clothes, tote bags, pencil cups, and Christmas items. There are even dog toys, too.

Sniff around at The Lab.
