Time to try #Pawleo

The whole world is going Paleo crazy. Not convinced? Just type #Paleo in an Instagram search. Actually, here… I did it for you: #Paleo. See what I mean? The word Paleo may even make some of you turn away in ‘over it’ exasperation. Please don’t. I’m not about to go all ‘Paleo Pete‘ on you. Paw fella has had a raw deal of late… Instead, I’m here to tell you about a great little Melbourne start-up called Pawleo. The gorgeously happy pair below are the inspiration and the brains behind Pawleo; Archie the Airedale & Jess Morton. Archie the Airedale has suffered from allergies and any good furparent of a furbaby with allergies knows, just how awful that can be. The endless scratching and discomfort is heartbreaking. My little Dexter suffered so badly that he developed little scabs; a terrible time in the Crescenzi/Davis household. So for that reason whenever an all natural food company pops up, it most certainly piques my interest. Add an Aussie brand to boot and I’m all squeals and hand claps. So who is …

Bow Tie Collars by Stuff Steph Does

Consider yourself a bit of a D.I.Y maven? Then this post is the perfect little project for you. When dressing your dogue in full garb is not appropriate this small statement piece will suffice. So here are the tools to make this gorgeous little bow tie from the Stuff Steph Does blog. It’s a great blog! We highly recommend you visit. In fact you can visit the original post here. First things first, cut out your fabric pieces. These sizes are all guidelines. You can cut pieces bigger and have a bigger bow or a wider collar. It’s up to you! Check out this size guideline from Buggsy if you get stuck with measurements. Fold and press the fabric into the thirds so the edges are in the back on all three pieces. Fold the bow and the “tie” piece in half with the right sides together and sew the edges together. Trim your threads and flip right side out. A re-press may be in order as well. Accordion-fold the bow piece and slip it …

Dog Selfie Saturday

The selfie has had a hard time of late. The ‘dogselfie’, however, is going gangbusters! To celebrate the selfie of a k9 description I have compiled 10 of some of the interwebs best dog-selfies. Some you may know others are relatively unknown… For now. 1. Norm the pug @jermzlee We have to start with Norm the pug. He claims to have started this dogselfie craze. & Bahahahhahah Stormtrooper Pug. Cracks me.                             2. Harlow & Sage/Indiana @harlowandsage Now these two playful pooches are Hi-LAR-ious. Seriously. They’ll have you in stitches. & 3. Mochi@justanotherdogblog I have to be honest I’m kinda jealous of all the attention pugs get online. I mean what about the Yorkie? Anywho this pug doesn’t really take ‘selfies’ but cos he lives in my hood I figure I should give the guy a plug. And it helps that his insta profile is comedy gold. Mochi’s human, dresses him up in well known movie characters. You can even put in a request. It’s genius! & 4. …
