Pet Photography 101

As pet parents, one of the things we like to do most is take pictures of our pets. I mean what parent doesn’t love snapping tons of pictures and sharing them with random strangers. We all do it. The cashier at Tractor Supply showed me pictures of her dog the other day. And let’s not forget social media! So, I figured, if we’re going to spend all this time taking and sharing pictures, why not take a few extra seconds to make sure our pictures are amazing.

A Cat House Personalized for Your Cat

Recently I got an email from the ASPCA website, some of you may have seen it actually, where they had turned a plastic storage tote into a cat hide-a-way. I’ll be honest I got really excited and thought this was an awesome idea. I mean cats love their own space, and cats really love boxes! Have you seen the thing on Pinterest with all the big cats in boxes (lions and tigers sitting in boxes). Anyway, with Gus being so shy I thought this project would be perfect for him so I stared at the picture for a while trying to memorize it. But then, as I stared at the picture I also thought of some great ways to customize this easy project and fill it with things cats love.

5 ways to keep your house from smelling like pets

If you’re an animal lover then at some point in time your house is probably going to smell like it. We’ve all been to that house (or owned that house) where you know a hundred cats live even if you never see one.I was watching the newest Jim Gaffigan special and he said this thing about going into his neighbor’s apartment and she asked him “Does it smell like cats in here?” and he said “No, but is smells like you have a box of poop in your house. Is that the same question?” I couldn’t help but laugh… a lot… because I’ve been that neighbor. On the other hand there’s that person with five dogs and her house smells like roses and fresh cookies. I envy those people. I didn’t notice the smell so much when I was in college and younger, but now that I’m grown and have other moms who bring their kids over I’m a little more self conscious about it. So I figured out some ways to alleviate this problem.

Spring Clean Your Pet

Spring is here and so is that compulsive cleaning urge they call Spring Cleaning. I’ll be honest I’m a victim to the need to spring clean … but I’m also a victim of needing to enjoy the weather before it gets too hot. I love sitting in the shade and reading a good book, or taking the kids to the park. I really love after dinner walks with Max, now that the sun stays up until 7:30!
In between all the fun stuff though I know that some cleaning still has to be done. That said, here’s a few things you can do to make sure your pets are spring cleaned. This is a great weekend project. so take this weekend to get your pets and their stuff nice and clean and then download my printable pet cleaning schedule so you can keep everything Spring fresh all year long.

Spring Collar Slip – Accessorizing your dog’s collar

Spring is in full swing. The weather is warm and it’s even raining today. I wish it were tomorrow so I could call them April showers, but it’s close enough I guess. I think Spring is my second favorite season. First fall, then spring, and winter vs summer is a wash.  I love spring because of the flowers, and butterflies, and the super cute clothes. So, as any pet parent would do, I decided to share that love with my dog. As usual this outfit isn’t very masculine, but Max is a good sport and really doesn’t care what I dress him in. I did buy some steel colored buttons with stars for another project, but these flower buttons were so cute I had to use them first.
