Shop Pretty Fluffy

October 23rd, 2014

I’m always on the lookout for modern, chic art prints (check out this post!) so when Serena reached out recently to tell me about Pretty Fluffy’s new boutique I was immediately on board.

What’s inside?

The Pretty Fluffy Shop consists of 6 x Original Art Prints and the 2nd Edition of their eBook ‘52 Weeks of Treats‘. So fitting!

I’m pretty sure these prints are everything. I already have ‘Must Love Dogs’ on my wishlist, and with the upcoming holidays will have plenty of options for modern art prints for the dog lovers in my life. All art is printed on high-quality 300gsm paper and come in color, B&W, and premium Gold Foil options.

One of these sentimental prints would make a nice addition to a gallery wall or home office – or any space that needs a touch of love. You could mix old family photos, paintings or drawings, with these modern phrase prints for variety, as an example.

Pretty Fluffy, a leading pet lifestyle blog, is based in Australia however they offer worldwide shipping for dog lovers.

Available for purchase at the Pretty Fluffy Shop!

DIY Pet Projects with The Charming Farmer

October 22nd, 2014

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the most DIY individual but when I came across The Charming Farmers DIY Pet Bed and learned the story behind it I really wanted to showcase her story on the site.

With Adopt-A-Shelter Dog among us, many creative opportunities exist to get the word out about helping these dogs. Meagan of The Charming Farmer and dog mom of three labs knows this feeling all two well. Her latest unexpected addition to the family, a puppy named Poe, was rescued after haven been hit by a car. Now 7 months old Meagan has worked tirelessly to get him back to full health and provide the love he needs.

Although Poe’s story is alittle different, adopting a shelter dog can take many shapes and forms, and the love behind the act is really what stands out in many people’s mind.

In continuing her mission to help raise money for shelter dogs, Meagan also participated in a DIY project: Thrift Store Redo: Suitcase Dog Bed. The task? To shop at a local animal shelter thrift store and create a project using our newly found materials.

“We’re thrifting and DIYing to bring awareness to thrift shops that help support animal rescues and humane societies.” – Meagan, The Charming Farmer

 

I asked Meagan what are her favorite resources for DIY:

“I started The Charming Farmer two years ago as a way to let people in on the craziness that comes from running a small farmette.  Obviously the main focus is on my animals, particularly my four horses and three dogs, but I love to find DIY projects which also means creating new projects for the pups!  My latest puppy addition, Poe, has really brought home to need to recognize and stop animal abandonment – you can read all about his journey on my blog.”

Product Review: Flexi Vario Retractable Leash

October 21st, 2014

 Now that Fall is here I anticipate much longer walks with the pups. As mentioned before I watch my sisters Eskijack, Jake, during the day so daily walks with both oftentime cut into my work time. I was happy to learn that Flexi offered a variation of their retractable dog leash to suit my needs, the Vario, to which I was sent a sample.

If you’re looking for a stylish, durable, and heavy-duty retractable dog leash I’d say the Flexi is a great option. The best part for my needs is the duo belt that allows both dogs to be walked comfortably at the same time. Initially I was worried about them becoming tangled but the product design ensures a seamless walking experience for both dogs.

The heavy duty retractable dog leash also has reflective components for nighttime walks.

 I was surprised how easily they adjusted. I never had issues with rectractable leashes before despite warnings against them recently. Am I the minority or what? To ensure your pets are safe keep them on a shorter leash around other dogs at parks to avoid them ‘running out the leash.’
