Dan and I will be in New York for a few days next week and Dan's mother will be watching Arthur for us. I'm currently in dog mode as I'm trying to compile a "Frenchie 101" package for her because, while she's used to babysitting dogs French Bulldogs fall under their own separate category.
With that in mind, I bring you an all doggie version of this week's Friday Five Fave.
1. DIY Dog Food Tin - by TidyMom
So, how cute is this tin? Added bonus is that we already have a popcorn tin that someone gave to us for Christmas AND Arthur already thinks delicious (popcorn) treats come out of it.
2. Sweet Potato Chew Treats - 17 Apart
I'm always on the lookout for dog treat recipes plus I have a (vintage Kaj Franck Heart) bowl full of sweet potatoes that I need to get rid of before our trip, so this is a win-win!
3. Snout Soother by Natural Dog Company
The cracked dry nose -- the Frenchie's worst enemy (well that, and pretty much everything else in their existence). I haven't tried this balm yet but I have high hopes based on the reviews. I normally use Vaseline but Arthur just eats it off his nose before it has time to be absorbed into the skin.
4. Dog Scarf - Modcloth
So I'm a big dork and actually knit Arthur a scarf but if knitting isn't your thing you can try this adorable scarf from Modcloth. I wish I had thought to add pom poms to the one I made.
5. Death Star Dog Tag (ThinkGeek)
I saw these around Christmas time before they sold out but didn't buy one right away. Immediately regret that now since they are sold out. I periodically check just in case they come back in stock.
There's a QR Scan Code on the back that has all the pet and owner's information.
