Teddy’s Organic Garden

Teddy was diagnosed in March with congestive heart failure. As a part of his treatment, we decided to add more veggies to his diet. We started looking into planting a garden. Our plantable yard is small so we also looked into vertical planting, raised beds and hanging plants. Here are our ideas so far:

Teddy is getting ready for our adventure!

First decide what you are going to plant.

Here is a list of safe and off limits fruits and vegetables from the ASPCA

Then decide how you are going to garden.

vertical gardening
Vertical and planter box gardening is very popular right now if you don’ t have a lot of space. This really works for smaller yards

 

planter beds
If you are planting veggies, I love these wine crates for a shabby chic look

Another great idea for herbs (maybe just for you) is to plant them in antique metal tea canisters:herbs in tea canisters

This is a nifty way to organize your seed packets. Just put them in ziplock baggies with paper inside letting you know when they were purchased and what they are. Or you can purchase 4” starter plants to get going. organize seed packets

This stone markers will keep you organized until things start poping up! It’s a creative and fun project for a Saturday morning:

Finally, when things start to grow, let your best friend enjoy the fruits of your labor!asparagus snack

Or not!

Just for fun, you can create veggie sculptures honoring your pal, at your next party!

Happy Gardening!

The Dog Squad Fall Photo Shoot

Last week we held a little photo shoot. Our fall line is almost here and we wanted to give you a sneak peak. What? A photo shoot of sweaters and blankets in August outside. Yes, it was a bit crazy, but we have also had a mild summer. We have so many fun new additions to the Dog Squad line and can’t wait to show them to you. Our trio of models were troopers, but Teddy was protesting a bit! The indignity of putting him in pink!

No worries, we took care of our pampered models. After each shot we went inside for a drink and treat!

Our fall sweaters include a soft, Green Camouflage sweater, a Seafoam Green Ombre Turtleneck and Seafoam Green Leopard Mockneck Sweater. Your dogs will be styling in the years hottest color. Our luxurious plush cozy and blankets will pamper your dogs on cool nights.

We have lots of pink for the girls! Mocha and Maddie cozied up in our Pink Shag and Pink Leopard cozy. Don’t they look sweet? They are modeling our Pink Sequined Sweater.

Of course, it would not be a photo shoot without them kissing! Maddie is always making sure Mocha is cleaned up and looking pretty!

The real story that day was the mad crush Mocha has on Teddy. She follows him all around the yard as he tries his hardest to ditch her. Maddie is her protective big sis who barks at him for ignoring her!
