While the contents of Bo’s Christmas stocking will remain a mystery at least until Christmas morning, we now have intel on his actual stocking! Now your loveable furball can have a stocking just like Bo’s with Arcadia Home’s paw print keepsake.

Dawn Kikel, president of the eco-conscious, handmade product line, tells that she was contacted by a White House consultant hired to work on this year’s Christmas decorations. “It was just really thrilling,” says the animal lover. “I love the thought of having an Arcadia Home stocking for Bo in his first Christmas in the White House.”

The red-and-white heirloom piece ($48) is made entirely of sustainable wool, and is hand-felted and hand-appliquéd by an artisan group in India. The eco-friendly item is also bio-degradable! Kikel, who also put together the tree skirts in the Obamas’s personal residence, expects Bo will get his Christmas treats in this stocking for years to come. “This isn’t something that you just hang up one year. We hope Bo has it when he’s 15!”
