Resolutions for Making This a True Year of the Dog (or Dogs)

If you're a regular visitor to our blog and/or social media, you know our dogs are very loved and well-cared for but we can always do better! Since it's 2018, I've broken my reflections down into 18 ways to give your dog a happier and healthier life and I'm sharing some of my own shortcomings, learnings, and resolutions at the end of the post.  Let's invest time and energy to make this and every year that follows a better year for our dogs!

DIY Chinese New Year Dog Bandana (Free Cut File Download)

Year of the dog? Every year is the year of the dog! This DIY dog bandana uses lucky red along with accents of gold and black for a festive colour scheme.  The bold colours work beautifully together and the bandana looks great without the added iron-on embellishment, but we've also create a custom design that can be used to create an iron-on design with heat transfer vinyl using a Cricut or similar. Here's the DIY details including options for adapting the bandana to your own style and free cut files if you'd like to use our design.  It used to drive me crazy when DIY posts only suited people with cutting machines, so even though I am now a very happy Cricut owner, I will still try to ensure that the DIY posts we share here on our blog have variations that work for people crafting without cutters.

{RECIPE} Chinese New Year Dog Fortune Cookie

Dog-friendly homemade fortune cookie treats

This upcoming Chinese New Year celebration may mark the Year of the Goat transitioning to the Year of the Monkey, but EVERY year around here is the Year of the Dog! :) Fortune cookies typically include more sugar and fat than we like to have in our dog treats, so we set out to create an alternative, just for fun!  Since these are the very ingredients that make fortune cookies crispy, we made a few compromises but came up with two different dog-liscious options. These fortune cookie treats won't be snappily crisp like a real fortune cookie, but they're pretty darn cute and a whole lot healthier for your pup.
