DIY Pet Safe Ink Paw Print Picture

As pet parents, we always want to document our pet?s lives and enjoy the time we have with them. Let?s face it; while we may like to believe that our pets are going to live forever, chances are we will live longer than them. That means you need to soak up and make the most out of the time we have them in our lives. One way to do that is by including them in fun DIYs and documenting the years they spend with us. That is why I am bringing to you, this DIY Pet Safe Ink Paw Print Picture.

Your pets paw print is something special, and a great way to showcase and include them in your life. You can create this DIY for a birthday, holiday or just to have in your house. We made this for Father?s Day but it would make a great gift for a dog lover for any occasion.

When I decided that I wanted to make Pet Safe Ink, I started trouble shooting different alternatives. Eventually I came up with this idea, which I feel safe and happy with. There are pet safe inks on the market that you can purchase, but the idea of putting chemicals on my dogs paw makes me worried. Not to mention, I don?t want anything sticking to her paw long term.

Kool-Aid is a simple and cheap alternative pet safe ink. If it sticks to your dogs paw for a while longer, it won?t hurt them and frankly, it?s pretty easy to wipe off. The different colours also make it unique and easy to tailor to the gift receiver. So lets get started on this DIY Pet Safe Ink Paw Print Picture.

Materials:

DIY Pet Safe Ink Paw Print Picture Materials

Steps:

  1. Make sure you have a clean surface and have all of your materials set out.
  2. Measure your white cardstock against the picture frame insert or glass. Make a mark using your pencil on the white cardstock the size of the glass insert and cut out the cardstock with your scissors.

  3. On a plate or in a shallow bowl, pour your Kool-Aid powder mix. I could only find Kool-Aid singles, so I used about 2 and a half packages. If you have a larger dog, you will need more because their paws will be bigger.
  4. Next, add a very small amount of water to the powder mix. You don?t want to add too much because you don?t want it runny. Combine the powder mix and the water into a paste. If you have added too much water, add more Kool-Aid.

  5. Pull out a 3-4 Pet Safe Wet Wipes. We use BarkBar Dry Grooming Multi-Purpose Wipes for Dogs.
  6. Take your dog and check to make sure their paw is clean. Then dip their paw into the Kool-Aid paste you have made. Depending on your dog and your paste consistency, you may have to paint their paw. Just use a regular paintbrush or a glazing/marinating brush. I wouldn?t recommend using a metal spoon because this may be cold on your dogs paw.

  7. Once your dog?s paw is covered in the Kool-Aid paste, quickly place their paw on the white cardstock. Aiming to have it in the middle or slightly higher.
  8. Pick up their paw and wipe it with Pet Safe Wet Wipes. Depending on your dogs colouring, it may be ideal to wash their paw with soap and water to get the Kool-Aid colour out. However the Kool-Aid is safe for them to eat if there is a small amount still left on their paw.
  9. Wait for the paste to dry for 8 hours or I recommend overnight. The dried Kool-Aid may be sticky, so leave it in a safe place.
  10. Underneath the paw print, write your dogs name, the year and the occasion, in pen or marker. For example, we wrote Marlee?s Paw ? Father?s Day 2018. Once everything is dry, put your cardstock in the picture frame, and wrap it up to give as a gift, or just hang it in your home as d?cor.

There you have, 10 super easy steps to Pet Safe Ink that you can use for any project. Even if yours turns out not so neat like ours did. That doesn?t mean you can?t still give it as a gift. I feel like the imperfection of the paw print makes it more special because life, especially with animals is never perfect.

DIY Pet Safe Ink Paw Print Picture - Marlee's Paw Print

What made Marlee?s paw print so messy is the fact that she has a ton of fur between the pads of her paws. If your dog has fur between their pads like Marlee does, would recommend trimming the hair. We didn?t do this because Marlee hates us touching her paws (as most dogs do) and our groomer does this for us. Marlee is in between grooming appointments right now so we don?t want to mess up our usual schedule.

However, like I said, the imperfection of the paw print is totally okay with us. What matters is the time we spent with our dog creating her paw print and documenting this time in our lives.

What’s in Marlee’s Dog Overnight Bag

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag

Last week we went to my parent’s house for the Victoria long weekend and to celebrate my nephew’s birthday and mine. Whenever my husband and I are both going away overnight we almost always bring Marlee along. Especially if it?s to my parents house because Marlee loves her Nana and Grandpa. So this blog post is to help you pack a dog overnight bag. Some people may think some of these things are straightforward. Others may never bring their dog overnight and not know what to pack. While others may think that some of these things are excessive and not necessary, but we always like to be prepared and lets face it, Marlee is a high maintenance dog. So we bring to you, What?s in Marlee?s Overnight Bag!

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - Sweater and Rain Jacket

Sweater and Rain Jacket

Now that it is spring/summer this isn?t as necessary as usual but we always like to have at least one sweater on hand. Marlee recently had her hair cut which means she really doesn?t have much left. When she has short hair she gets cold really easily. Our Canadian weather is so unpredictable that sometimes the temperature will be low in the evenings and hot during the day. So we find it important to always have a sweater with us so that we can go for evening walks with no fear of Marlee getting cold.

A rain jacket is also important especially like I said with our unpredictable weather. When we left last Saturday to go to my parent?s house, it was pouring rain. Due to that reason we brought along Marlee?s Canada Pooch Perfect Poncho rain jacket. We ended up not needing to use it but we felt better knowing that we had it with us if we needed it. When Marlee gets wet since she has curly hair is really holds the water and makes her freezing cold. Sometimes this is nice, such as in the middle of the summer when it?s stinking hot out, but not so much when the temperature drops. That?s why we like to include a jacket of some kind in Marlee?s dog overnight bag. We highly recommend it for any dog overnight bag.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - Harnesses

Harness, Leash and Poop Bags

These items are pretty straightforward and are no brainers. But you always want to make sure that you put them on your list when you?re packing. We often let Marlee out to go pee before putting her in the car and since we live in the country we don?t leash her to do this. I cannot tell you the amount of times that we have done this and it has resulted in us forgetting a harness or a leash. Marlee has to have a harness or she won?t walk on a leash. This is something that we learned when we first got her. Since she is a rescue dog and previous to us owning her, she had never worn a collar or walked on a leash its one of her quirks. We purchase Marlee?s harnesses from PetSmart?or Ren’s Pets Depot.

Marlee also prefers retractable leashes as many small dogs do. We pack one of these for our trips so that she can always go on walks even if there is a backyard. Whenever we forget a harness or leash we always end up going and buying a new one, which can get expensive. But there is nothing worse than your dog not being able to go on walks and get out their pent up energy or not get exercise. Also, don?t forget poop bags. If you?re bringing your dog on a walk it?s important for you to pick up your dogs poop.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - Leash and Poop Bags

The best way we have found to carry poop bags is with a pet waste bag dispenser. These just clips onto your dogs leash and then when they do their business it?s easy for you to just pull out a bag. I purchased our waste bag dispenser from our local PetSmart and you can also purchase extra poop bags their as well. I have also purchased some from Costco. Both stores sell the poop bags for somewhat inexpensive. Which is perfect since these are a must have item in a dog overnight bag.

Depending on if Marlee has a jacket on or is just au natural is how we decide which harness to put on her. In all honesty her favourite harness is currently missing so we will have to buy her a new one. However, if she has a sweater or jacket on we usually use a rope harness, the grey one in the picture. If she has nothing on, then we use the purple mesh harness since it is more comfortable against her skin and fur.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - BarkBox Toys

Toys

Some people may not think that toys are necessary for their dog, but Marlee loves to play and needs her toys. It?s always also really important for your dog to have things with them that they are familiar with. Just like children you want to give your pet their comfort items. For Marlee these are hers toys as well as a couple other items I will talk about later on.

We always make sure to add in some toys that are her favourite such as the Clam Overboard! toy that she received in her April BarkBox. This toy has three parts to it, which she loves. She is always chasing after and squeaking the little pearls from inside the clam. I also always make sure that she has a tug toy because she loves to play tug. We also add in a couple extra just for good measure.

Something we also always include that is not pictured, is that we bring a tennis ball along. That way we can play fetch with Marlee (even though she still doesn?t 100% get the concept of bringing it back). Marlee also loves to greet people at the front door with toys in her mouth. When someone comes in the door, she will literally run for a toy just to bring it to whoever came in and greet them. This is something she learned from my mother in laws golden retriever but it is pretty cute.

Needless to say, we always make sure that we pack toys in Marlee?s dog overnight bad and they are essential for any dog overnight bag.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - Dog Water and Food Bowls

Water and Food Bowls

This is another no brainer but very easy to forget. I find that if we don?t make a list of what to pack, we almost always forget something. Usually its Marlee?s leash or harness like I mentioned above, but we have also forgotten her water and food bowls. Depending on where you?re going you may be able to get by borrowing a regular bowl from someone.

However, if you have a picky dog or a dog that will only drink out of his or her own bowl you may be in for some trouble. Luckily for us, Marlee is past the point of not being able to drink out of a different bowl. But we still don?t like to forget to put her bowls in her dog overnight bag.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - VitaLife Duck Tenders and Benny Bully's Beef Liver Treats

Treats

This is an absolute must! If your dog is used to getting treats as rewards you definitely don?t want to forget these. Marlee almost always gets a little treat when she comes in from doing her business outside as well as before bed. When we first got her, she was severely underweight so apart from her regular food this was a good way to help her put some weight on.

If you follow our blog and read our posts regularly you know how picky Marlee is about food. Therefore, her two favourite types of treats are the VitaLife Duck Tenders?and beef liver. We have recently started buying the Benny Bully Beef Liver treats. These come in so many different flavours. At home we keep a jar full of the regular flavoured beef liver, but when we are on the go we have smaller bags of different flavours. Marlee has recently started to love the Benny Bully’s Apple Beef Liver?and the Benny Bully’s Sweet Potato Beef Liver. So we bring those along with us because she loves them. We can break the pieces into smaller sizes so they last longer and they are in small reseal able bags, which is so convenient.

I don?t think Marlee would forgive us if we forgot her treats. In fact, I?m sure she would demand for us to make a trip to the nearest pet store to stock up. Therefore, make sure you pack your dogs favourite treats in their dog overnight bag, or you may be in trouble.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - Tom and Sawyer Dog Food

Food

This is also stating the obvious, but can you imagine if you forgot it? Your pets food is something you definitely want to pack or it could be costly. Depending what type of food your dog eats, you can potentially pack it in their bag in advance. But if your dog is on a frozen or refrigerated food like Marlee, make sure you do this last. Marlee is currently on two types of food since she is extremely picky. She has been on the raw food Instinct Raw?for a long time and has gotten bored of it. So we have started adding in food from Tom and Sawyer. Marlee sometimes loves this food and sometimes is indifferent towards it.

Regardless, both of these foods need to be either in the freezer or fridge. We pack these items last. If your dog is on a food like this, it is also important to consider putting it in a freezer bag or cooler with some ice packs. That way it won?t go bad in transportation, depending on how long your car ride is.

If your dog is on a dry food or a kibble, we recommend taking out your dog?s daily amount and storing it in a plastic freezer bag or a storage container. That way you are saving on space and not transporting the entire food bag. It will keep all of the food more fresh and cut down on the weight of the bag. My brother in law and his wife do this for their dog when travelling with him. They also add in a measuring cup so that they never over feed him. This is especially important if someone else is watching your dog and is in charge of feeding them. Out of everything on this list I would rank this as the number one important item to put in a dog overnight bag.

What's in Marlee's Dog Overnight Bag - Dog Bed and Blanket

Blanket and Bed

Marlee being a spoiled little doggie needs her bed and blanket to come along with her overnight. She actually sleeps in bed with us, but she needs her bed just in case. Marlee sits in her bed in the car, which is a comfort for her. She also likes to sleep in it during the day while we are out or just doing stuff around the house. Marlee has a total of three beds in our house and one at my mother in laws. She treats all of her beds equally and knows that they are hers.

We only bring one bed along on overnight trips because truly any more than that is rather excessive. But remember before when I mentioned it being important that your dog had items that were familiar to them? Well this is another one that is very important. For other dogs this may be in the form of their crate. Marlee is crate trained but it never truly became her safe place. Her safe place is her bed.

Going along with her bed is her blanket. I know now she sounds like a child, but she loves her blanket. She has had it for a long time and loves to burrow in it. We keep it in her bed and she just digs and gets right under it when she?s cold and wants to take a nap. Since she does like digging and burrowing in blankets, it?s always important for us to bring this along. Otherwise she would be destroying everyone?s blankets, which would not be a good thing.

If your dog has something they are attached to make sure you bring that along. For many dogs that is their bed or their toys but for Marlee it is also her blanket. Make sure you pack what your dog is familiar with in their dog overnight bag.

Well that is what we packed in Marlee?s dog overnight bag. But like I said, these items may be different for your dog. You may see some of the items on this list and think that for you and your dog they aren?t necessary and that?s okay. Your dog may also need other items that we haven?t listed because they are important to your dog. Pack whatever works for you but don?t forget some of those important ones like food, treats and a leash! These items I would say are the bare minimum items. Then you can pack the extras like sweaters, toys, bed and blankets.

Let us know what you pack in your dog overnight bag and if you think we should add any essential items to our list!

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding

Now that spring is upon us, and summer around the corner, we are officially in Wedding Season! If you?re getting married this spring or summer, you may be looking at ways to include your furry best friend in your big day. That is why we are bringing you 5 Ways To Include Your Dog in Your Wedding. Having just got married this past October myself; I know the importance of wanting all of your family members celebrating with you.

These 5 ideas are all things that my husband and I did to include Marlee in our wedding. Some take a bit of planning, while others are super easy. But what?s important is that your four-legged friend gets to be included. Whether that is with you in person or in other creative ways.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Engagement Pictures

1. Engagement Pictures

A very simple way to include your doggie in your wedding and events leading up to your wedding is engagement pictures. This is your first step towards your wedding after the actual proposal.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Engagement Pictures

Here are a few of my tips for including your dog in your engagement pictures:

  1. Talk to your photographer in advance if you plan on bringing your dog along. You want to know if your photographer has worked with animals before. It?s possible they could be scared of dogs and then they aren?t able to perform their services to the best of their ability.
  2. Pick an outdoor location. Your dog will feel most comfortable being outside and not in some strange persons house. Of course you could always take your engagement pictures at your home, where they also feel at home. But we recommend outside so that your dog is calm.
  3. Take your dog for a walk before hand. This goes along with my previous tip. If you?re outside you can bring your dog for a walk before hand and let them run around. This way they are calm and tired for the pictures. Ensuring that they will be more willing to sit and stay still for your photographer. Bonus: If you want your photographer to catch action shots, they can always do this while you?re playing with your dog.
  4. Bring along treats. This may seem like a no brainer but it could be a lifesaver. If you have a very well trained dog, this may not be necessary, but still couldn?t hurt. Most dogs are food motivated and having treats on hand is super helpful. Marlee isn?t food motivated but having some of her favourite treats on hand, always comes in handy. No pun intended. But really, your dog may have to sit or lie dog for a long period of time depending on the pose you are doing and having a reward is always a great idea.
  5. Bring along a friend or family member. This was the best decision we made! My best friend came along with us and took care of Marlee. We wanted some pictures with Marlee and some without. She was able to take care of Marlee for the photos we took without her. It was also really helpful having her for the pictures we took with Marlee because she was able to stand with the photographer and call Marlee?s name. For occasion such as engagement pictures, another person is a must if you include your dog.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Honorary Wedding Party Member

2. Honorary Wedding Party Member

It may be a little more complicated to include your dog in your wedding as a wedding party member but it?s worth it! We were very lucky to get married on my mother in laws property so we didn?t have to worry too much about the logistics of this. However, you will want to check your venue, if dogs or pets are allowed. Most will have strict rules about this. Most likely if your ceremony is in a church this option will not be possible. However, most outdoor locations are great for allowing dogs.

We had one of our maids of honour (we had two) walk down with Marlee and then hold her leash during the ceremony. This way she was able to walk down the aisle and then stand next to us during the ceremony. You could also have your furry friend walk the bride down the aisle, or go down with the flower girl or ring bearer. There are so many options, what you choose truly depends on you and your dog.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Honorary Wedding Party Member

You can also dress your four-legged family member for the occasion. With Marlee we put a cute white and black damask collar on her. But you could do a flower collar or flower crown, a special leash. Or my personal favourite, a special engraved dog tag that says their role, such as ?Flower Girl? or ?Groomsman.? Whatever suits you, your future husband and your doggie the best. The important thing is that you get to include your dog in your wedding.

Just make sure that you have a plan for your pup post ceremony because the reception may be a little too wild for them. Marlee went into the house when the real party started in the reception tent. Family members took turns letting Marlee and my mother in laws dogs out for pee breaks throughout the evening and night. If this isn?t an option for you, consider hiring a dog sitter for the evening. Or have someone you trust drive your dog home.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Cake Topper

3. Your Cake Topper

Having your dog apart of your cake topper is an easy and subtle way to include your dog in your wedding. I feel that this is a really cute touch to any wedding where the bride and groom own a dog. It requires little extra work and doesn?t mean that your dog has to be present at your wedding. We wanted to include Marlee in as many aspects of our wedding as possible. Which meant that she had to be on top of the cake with us!

I had looked at customized cake toppers but they were pretty pricey and out of our budget. While this would have been nice, the reality of the matter is that it?s only for one night and then you never use it again. With that in mind I immediately set out looking for alternatives that still included our fur baby.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Cake Topper

We ended up ordering our cake topper from Wedding Star. As you can see from the picture we ordered the ?Leaning for a Kiss? couple figure Cake Topper. This was our main cake topper and then we ordered the Miniature Bichon Frise Figurine. Marlee isn?t actually a bichon frise, but this dog looked the closest to her breed. However it was all white and she isn?t.

My amazingly talented best friend, actually painted the porcelain dog to match Marlee?s hair colour. This completely brought the dog to life and looked just like her. We then were able to put the dog figurine on base of the couple figurine cake topper. The cake topper as a whole was a huge hit. This is a super cute and easy way to include your dog in your wedding. Bonus: these cake toppers are currently on sale!

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Getting Ready and Wedding Picures

4. Wedding Pictures ? Getting Ready Pictures

What better way to include your dog in your wedding than your wedding pictures. There are a couple ways to do this. First, if you?re taking bridals or any wedding pictures in advance you can bring your dog along. If you?re going to do this, use the same tips that I mentioned for including your dog in your engagement pictures.

Another way to include your dog in your wedding pictures is by taking pictures with them when you?re getting ready. This is something that I did and really enjoyed. Since we were married on our family?s property it gave us a lot of leeway. Marlee was in the house with us so it was just natural for her to be by my side as I was getting ready. Our photographer captured some really nice pictures of the two of us.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Getting Ready and Wedding Pictures

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Getting Ready and Wedding Pictures

The last way to include your dog in your wedding pictures is by having them present the day of your wedding. I previously mentioned having our dog in our wedding ceremony. Because of that she was at our cocktail hour before the reception. We took the majority of our pictures during this time. We actually let all the dogs run around and mingle with our guests. Looking back on our wedding pictures, there are quite a few where Marlee is seen off to the side or hiding. It truly is something special to have your furry best friend included in your big day.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Save the Dates and Thank You Cards

5. Your Save The Dates/Thank You Cards

You can include your dog in your save the dates and thank you cards in a couple ways. If you want them in your save the dates then you can bring them along to your engagement pictures and use those photos. Or you can have a little cartoon made of them and included somewhere on the save the date. We did not have Marlee included in our save the dates because we were going to a more elegant/rustic feel. But we did include her in our Thank You Cards.

You can do this by using photos from your wedding day, if you had your dog present that day and got pictures. Another way as I previously mentioned in the form of a cartoon, which is what we did. Even though we had Marlee at our wedding and got some cute pictures, I wanted to do something a little more fun. We treat Marlee as our child, which means she is as apart as the family as my husband and I are. Because of that, I reached out to a cartoonist who was able to make Marlee into a cartoon based on pictures I sent him.

5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding Save the Dates and Thank You Cards

I thought it would be really funny if Marlee was a cartoon and she had a speech bubble saying, ?and we all lived happily ever after!? We then put it on the back of our Thank You Cards. That way the front still matched our wedding theme, as well as our Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations. But it added a little fun element that was unique but included our dog in our wedding.

Well there you have it, 5 Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding! We hope you enjoyed our ideas. Some are super easy to achieve, such as included them in your cake topper or save the dates/thank you cards. While others may require more planning, it is totally worth it in the end. If you?re able to include your dog in your wedding I highly recommend it. I love looking back on our wedding pictures and seeing Marlee right next to us. I can?t wait to look back on them in 10, 15, 25 or even 50 years and see her and remember how it was such an amazingly special day.

Another great dog friendly march break activity is geocaching. This is actually an activity that you can do any time of the year.

4. Trail Walk

All dogs love trail walks. Well Marlee did not like walking on a trail when we first rescued her but now with some love and practice walking on and off leash, she loves trail walks. I have never met another dog that doesn’t love trail walks, so chances are your dog does. If they don’t just keep trying and giving them lots of love and support and it will come over time. So if you have a dog that loves trail walks what better dog friendly march break activity than this one! Whether its snowy or not, its always fun to get outside and get some exercise with your four legged best friend. Not sure where the closest dog friendly trails are to you??Check out this?website.

The dog park is a great dog friendly march break activity. It literally made for dogs to go and have fun. No matter the weather your furry friend is going to have time running around and playing with other dogs. The family could also have a blast getting to meet and play with other dogs, or talk to other dog owners. Its a great opportunity for you and your dog to meet other like minded people/dogs. It is also great for your dog to get some exercise and get some energy out that is not just them hooked up to their leash. Whether you live in the city or the country, its always a great experience for the whole family, but especially for your doggie companion. Check for dog parks near you here.
