A Treat Tree For Good Doggies!

Dear Pet People,

Jake, our 1 year old golden retriever, has been a really good boy this year! Over the weekend I baked him a batch of his favourite homemade treats and made him his very own "treat tree".

I used my go-to recipe for homemade wheat-free dog treats which can be found here.  In keeping with the season, I cut the treats into tiny stars and poked a hole in each star before baking to accommodate the string after baking.

Once the cookies have baked and cooled, they are ready for stringing. The "string" that I used to hang the stars on the tree is actually thin strips of dried apple slices, so the entire treat is edible!

The "tree" part of this arrangement is a mini lavender plant that our local grocery stores have in stock in December.

I really love the rustic, old-fashioned look of this treat tree ...

 ... and Jake loves the treats!

Enjoy your pets!


By the way, I don't think you should let your dog eat the lavender, although when I did a quick internet search, lavender wasn't included in the list of toxic plants.

Meet Our New Tag: Mischief Maker!

Dear Pet People,

Who doesn't love an adorable, impossibly cute puppy!  Big eyes, silky puppy ears, velvety soft puppy paws, sweet tummies...

It's lucky puppies are so sweet because they can really make a mess! We are recently out of the puppy stage with our dog, Jake - and not a moment too soon, really!

I know!! Precious, right! But, ohmygoodness, that gigantic fluff ball had mischief ingrained in his DNA!

I love pictures of puppy mischief - but I'm thankful I'm not the one left with the clean-up:

I'm also thankful we haven't had any shoe casualties lately:

If you have a little mischief maker, has the perfect tag for you!

This tag is a new addition to our line of designer id tags from K9 by Igloo. It's a little bit smaller than a nickel, so it's the perfect size for puppies, smaller dogs and cats.  Our Mischief Maker tag combines fantastic durability with a cute, slightly quirky designer look!

If you share your home with a mischief maker...

... then our new Mischief Maker identity tag is the perfect choice!

Enjoy your pets!
