It never fails. You spend time thinking about what to buy. Time to go get it. You even spend time wrapping it. And no matter you buy, They always prefer the box.

Christmas Countdown Day 12- Crafting A Pet Themed Christmas

christmas countdown day 12

 

If it was possible I’d have my house decorated in all things having to do with animals. But it’s not in my budget and my family might think it’s a little crazy(though not totally out of the realm of my devotion to pets). Keeping the pet theme to a holiday seems much more doable.

 

Here are some things to get started with.

A Dog Biscuit Wreath I made for a previous Christmas Countdown on afFURmation.

Dog and Cat Ornaments from Lowes.

DIY Decal ornaments from Kol’s Notes.

A Dogbone Ornament from the space between.

A stocking for your dog from Embroidery Library Projects

Another cute stocking for your dog from Izzy Hudgins.

Christmas Countdown Day 10- Finding The Right Gift For Your Pet

christmas countdown day 10

This time of year with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I always forget what I was planning on buying for my pets. If I were organized (ha!) I’d keep a list, but I’m not so that means I have to start thinking what would be the perfect gift for each of my pets. Not an easy task when you start looking at everything there is out there for pets.

Luckily there is some help that helps make it easier to make up my mind.

Thank you to the pet bloggers who spend time putting together Holiday Gift Guides. With their help I have my list together in no time.

Here are some of the gift guides you find to help you make up your mind. (Pet Bloggers- if you have a gift guide you’d like to see in the list, please leave a link to it in the comments.)Pet Holiday Gift Guides

Christmas Countdown Day 9- Guinea Pig and Rabbit Treats

christmas countdown day 9

 

It’s not only the people and the pups who like homemade Christmas treats. Guinea pigs and bunnies love them too. And my crew loved these Timothy pellet/carrot treats I made for them

Homemade Treats

Ingredients-

Pellets

Jar of carrot baby food (I used organic Earth’s Best baby food.)

Grated carrots

Water

IMG_5596 (640x480)

1. Mix the baby food into the bowl of pellets followed by the grated carrots.

2. Add enough water to just cover the pellets. Let sit until the water is absorbed.

3. Once the water is absorbed, mix it all together so the pellets break down.

4. Prepared a cookie sheet by covering it with parchment paper.

5. You can make the treats in 2 forms.

  • For the first drop the mix using a teaspoon onto the tray and smash it down with the bottom of a glass.
  • For the second spread the mix onto the cookie sheet and score with a knife (this was a much faster method)

6. Place the tray into the oven and baked for about 2 hours at 250 degrees.

7. Once dry remove from the oven and remove treats from the tray(break up the treats for the the mix that was spread on the tray).

A quick taste test done by the guinea pigs and Ms. Glee the bunny got a paws up from all.
