The Sweater Lives On

The holidays are all about dog sweaters in our house. This sweater was a Christmas gift from one of our first blog friends way back in 2012. Fortunately, it fits Ruby, too.

No Sew, No Stress DIY Holiday Fleece For Pets

Our friends at are currently hosting the 12 Days of DIY Pet Gifts and asked us to share a DIY gift for pets. The holidays are a time for family, inspiration, and creativity. If you’re anything like the Dog People at, involving the family pet in festivities is a given. They've worked with 12 DIY bloggers to bring you a different daily craft for 12 days, for you to try at home. So deck the paws and count down to a furry Christmas with us! 

On the Ninth Day of DIY, your fur love did receive a Christmas Wreath Pull Toy. On the Tenth Day of DIY, your fur love will receive a Fleece Holiday Blanket (made by us).

Hospice Care For Shelter Pets: Making Endings Happy

If you are following 31 Ways To Celebrate The Holidays By Helping Animals, you know that today is all about providing hospice foster care (fospice) for shelter animals.

While sharing a long, happy life with an animal is a wonderful thing (the best), spending a few months, days, or even hours with a dog or cat who has never known kindness or love is just as amazing. It's all about living in the moment and rewriting their story with a happy ending - helping homeless animals leave the world knowing they are safe, cherished, and finally home. You get back way more than you give and some pretty good karma, too.

Cleo was my once-in-a-lifetime, feel-good, rewrite-the-story-and-make-the-ending happy, hospice cat.

Cleo lost her home three times, spent three years in a shelter, and then found her forever home in her hospice foster home.
