Have you ever found a dog food label confusing? Well, us too! So, when PupCulture Magazine hired us to help put together this ultra nifty pet infographic explaining how to decipher what can otherwise quickly become a conclave of messy info, we jumped right to it. We hope that you like it and will find it useful Oh, and please feel free to pass this on too. Enjoy!

Check out this neat DIY dog bed I found via Shop Rouche.com’s blog. Naturally, since I thought that this project was so cool, it would be a great way to create something bright and colorful to help bring in a dose of early spring for Fido or Ms. Kitty.
What’s more, I love just how simple it is to do!
1. Choose an empty suitcase that’s large enough for your pet to fit comfortably in.
2. Measure and cut out a piece of foam to fit inside of the suitcase. You can add multiple layers of foam for more cushion.
3. Choose a fun fabric to place over the foam. Cut out a piece that is larger than the area of the suitcase (you’ll need the extra length to secure the fabric).
4. Place the fabric over the foam and tuck it in at the edges and corners. For a more secure fit, you can also take two pieces of fabric (both large enough to cover the foam) and sew them at the edges to create a pillowcase to cover the foam with.
5. Present your furry friend with their comfy new bed and add in their favorite toys!
Now, if you want to share this DIY project with others on Pinterest, go for it! Or better yet, you can visit the blog and share a Pinterest ready image posted at the bottom of Ruche’s blog. Have fun with it and enjoy!
Our constant quest and thirst for new and fun animal themed tidbits has lead us to another very talented and inspiring illustrator: Michael Fleming. To freely view more of his work, please visit tweedlebop.com/blog.
What we love most about his work, is the richly textured and colorful style he beautifully displays in his work…we are also partial to his pieces whose theme centers around animals and pets. So, if you happen to need a quick get away into a world where texture, color and creativity rule, his blog is a great place to start, sit…and stay.
Check out this doggy styled video clip by Brave New Films about the woeful encounter Mit Romney’s dog expereinced during a very dreadful trip. Even better is that this here little song was performed by Ry Cooder himself! Two paws up.
We love to celebrate Valentine’s Day in honor of all those near and dear to us! So, here is a free DIY animal card template for you to download and give to all of your most favorite and ‘furried’ Valentine(s). Better yet, these can also serve a great fit for all of those (ahem), last minute types who still wish to give out a simple, yet highly unique card.
This pet themed card and envelope set was designed to be simple and fun. There are two themes to choose from: pink or red. Also included in the template is a matching envelope that you can print out and cut out. It’s so easy! Better yet, download both and get extra crafty with these pet design templates. After all, every one (both human and pet), deserves to know that they mean everything to someone. Woof!
Looks pretty delicious doesn’t it? Well we thought so too and wanted to share this tasty little treat with you. Download this free PDF pattern and you will find that it includes two mini cake versions. An all American version – a Swiss cake roll and a British version – a mini jam roll. Both use the same pattern pieces but slightly different techniques for each. Have fun on getting started on making some sweet and new memories for you and Fido. Buon appetito!
