You could totally sell those harnesses. I want one for my 60 pound mutt! He's so strong though, I'd be worry he'd bust through my stitching... Part malamute, he'll pull threw anything.
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / "adopt me!" bandannas on: April 01, 2008 09:03:19 PM
I made this bandanna for my foster puppy to get him noticed. He's so cute but really shy so I figured he needed a little style.

Kevin with it on, but its blurry because puppies wiggle all the time

Better shot.

What do you think, is it cute enough to get my pooch adopted? I am thinking I might make more for the dogs to wear at adoption days in the rescue president wants some.

ps- the seams look crooked but they're not, the bandanna was curled up on my lap a bit.
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / no-sew fleece dog bed on: March 30, 2008 07:41:45 PM
I was rummaging around in a spare closet for who knows what and found a foam mattress pad, folded in quarter. I took it out and brought it out the living room, where the puppy immediately pounced on it. I used some USMC fleece (my hubby is enlisted) and made this dog bed. Now, we have two dog beds so the foster puppies can quit stealing my dog's bed.

the bed itself

Kevin my lovely assistant modeling the bed for your viewing enjoyment. He is a 30lb lab/shep puppy, so it gives you an idea of the bed's size.

I also agree your pup is really cute! And great idea for a bed.
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Puppy fund! [and a question] on: March 29, 2008 08:43:43 PM
I like your idea, but as a volunteer with a dog rescue and also as someone going to school to be a  dog training instructor, don't forget that yearly check-ups at the vet will cost around $250, and another additional $100 for heartworm preventative which is A MUST because the parasite can and will kill a dog. Also, obedience training is a marvelous idea for any dog- the leading cause of death in dogs is euthanasia for behavioral problems, and also its the biggest reason dogs get given to shelters- and (one more grim stat and I'm done) on average, 60% of shelter dogs don't get adopted, they get put down because no one wanted them.

Also, if there is a particular breed you want, try a breed-specific rescue first, and if no breed requirements, most shelters will have dogs "ready to go," as in all shots, sterilized, etc. Most "breeders" that advertise online and in the newspapers as "family breeders" are nothing more than a smokescreen for at-home puppy mills who view litters as disposable. I have a foster puppy in my care right now who has lived his first five months in a dirt and feces filled yard. He has missing fur, has giant raw (just starting to heal, thanks to TLC and Neosporin) patches of blood-crusted skin, and major fear issues- because of irresponsible breeding.

For anyone considering adopting purebred or designer dogs, here is some information on what to ask a breeder:
And the AKC website has a list of people who can help you find a good breeder who breeds to see the advancement of healthy purebred dogs and to reduce the risks of health problems that plague poorly bred dogs:

Alright, I am off my soap box now. I hope your puppy-funding goes well, and if you have any behavior questions, feel free to send me a personal question, I'll try to help!
