DIY Eat - Sage Cookies

These sage cookies fit the bill for tender-tummied pups. Sage, thyme, chamomile or fennel all settle the stomach and bowel, and are especially recommended for dogs with food sensitivities. Substitute the sage for thyme, chamomile or fennel if that's what you have on hand. more

DIY Eat - Peanut Butter and Banana Oat Drops

Grains are a hardy source of energy for your dog, but fillers such as refined wheat, corn, cereal, and rice grains can lead to obesity, diabetes, and allergic reactions.

D.I.Y Craft

Denyse Schmidt of Denise Schmidt Quilts saw her first Scottie Dog at the Elephant’s Trunk flea market in New Milford, Connecticut many years ago and fell in love. She’s been collecting vintage patchwork Scottie Dogs (and photographing them when her bed got too full) ever since. Just like old patchwork quilts, no two Scottie Dogs are alike—but they all have personality. We’re not sure where the pattern originated, but, due to the proliferation of patchwork Scotties out there, it probably appeared in a very popular women’s magazine in the 1940’s. And now, you can make your own!more
