DIY Craft - Vintage Suitcase Dog Bed

DIY Craft - Vintage Suitcase Dog Bed

I’ve jumped on the vintage suitcase dog bed bandwagon. What, you ask, are vintage suitcase dog beds? Well, these adorable pet beds are basically just upcycled old suitcases. You know, the kind you find at a thrift store that have no wheels, so are clearly not practical for extreme traveling. I have a love for old suitcases, so I was considering purchasing a little bed on Etsy for Zuzu the Poodle; however, once I noticed the hefty price tag (over $50 for most of the listings) I decided it was time for some DIY magic. I made my own version for under $10. Here’s how: more

DIY Eat - Golden Koi Cookies

These golden cookies don’t just have the flavour of fish—they are fish.

The drier the cookie is, the less you’ll smell it when you open the cookie jar.more

DIY Eat - Puppy Pesto

Do you ever buy a bunch of parsley for a recipe that only requires a couple of tablespoons and then put the remaining parsley back in the fridge. A week later it’s a wilted mess. Instead of letting your extra parsley go to waste, put it to use in freshening your dog’s breath by sprinkling this Puppy Pesto over her dry food. The Brazil nut is a good source of selenium, and the cheese makes the combination irresistible.more

DIY Eat - Pumpkin Ice Cream

Did you know that dogs don’t’ sweat, at least not the way we do? It’s the panting that helps them cool their head and to some extent their body. To help your dog keep cool, try “ice cream.” This is a treat best served outdoors, as it can be kind of messy if your dog noses it across the floor while licking away. It’s also a great treat for stuffing in a Kong. For older dogs with sensitive mouths, allow the frozen cubes to thaw for a few minutes before feeding. more
