What??? Holidays are over? And it's Monday? Oh poo... Hello again furfriends and hello 2020! We've been quiet the past few weeks enjoying some semi-offline family holiday time. Every day we share together is a gift, and we hope there will be many more days, celebrations, milestones, and memories to come. Here is a little catch up from during our break before we dive into our Valentine's Day posts starting next week.

Easy DIY Dog Party Cracker

Here is the final share from Humphrey's first birthday! Humphrey enjoys helping with the recycling of all varieties, but he has a particular fondness for toilet paper rolls.  On his birthday, I made two very simple "party cracker" inspired treat tubes (one for each dog - nobody wants a birthday fight!).  These are a fun little novelty to add to a doggy celebration. I may make some for New Year's, too.
