dog toys, they say 100% US:

http://www.genuinedoggear.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=GDG&Category_Code=dog_toys

I can't believe they have US tennis balls--I've been looking EVERYWHERE for them.  Wish they would sell just the balls--my big guy goes through them like crazy & I just won't buy China-made balls anymore.  On the last batch of Chuckit balls I bought, he picked one up eagerly then spit it out & wouldn't play with it or any of the others.

I found another site awhile back that had soft toys, can't seem to find the link in my favorites but will search

My dogs LOVE tennis balls.

Penn......Made in Arizona.  Check out the upper right hand corner of the site.

These don't have an odor to them.

That's great about the Penn tennis balls--I had read somewhere only one type of ball their line is still made here but looks like they all are made here.  Penns it is from now on!

Ace Hardware stores seem to carry a lot of US items, unlike many others that carry mostly made in China tools & hardware.

Pyrex & Rubbermaid seem to be all US made.

I question USA made Rubbermaid.  I think they moved to China a few years ago.

I can't say for sure on all the Rubbermaid products, but the one's I regularly buy--food storage & the big 18 gallon plastic storage bins--they all say made in the US on them.

I bought the dogs 4 tubes of Penn tennis balls for Christmas yesterday!  It was so nice to throw a new ball for them in the off-leash area instead of hunting down the rotten old ones already there.  I haven't bought any balls for months because I couldn't find any not made in China.

Read the Penn containers though before you buy--I picked up the cheapest Penns at first (think they had Court in the name) but it said Made in China on the tube.  The professional grade ones were US made so I got those instead.  They cost a little more, but I didn't care. 

The dogs like them too.  The last few times I got Made in China balls before all the lead info started coming out, my ball-crazed big guy would pick them up excitedly then drop them immediately & NOT PLAY WITH THEM.  I knew something was not right for him to refuse them.

The RoboCut is made in the US if you're interested in do it yourself hair cuts.  I started a new thread to get feedback on anyone that has tried this thing, or the Flowbee, which I'm not sure is US made.  Would be nice to plug in the vac & cut my hair for free every 2 months!

It would also be nice if we could find American or Canadian made products with all raw materials sourced in either of these countries.  Who else are our friends?
