We don't have a ton of spirited Fourth of July posts lined up this year, but one thing that we love to do around certain holidays or seasons, is to share ideas that can easily be customized to whatever occasion is currently on your plate. Like these harness charms -- which are so simple to make and can easily be updated for every occasion.
Hi, friends! Thanks for joining us again! Today, we're talking about cookies -- double chocolate shortbread Scottie Dog cookies. Do we have your attention now? :)
Have you ever tasted these cookies, or seen them on a store shelf? Mike and I first sampled the original flavored cookies from a holiday gift basket from my parents. The cookies are thick, rich and perfect with coffee. But these double chocolate cookies takes the flavor even further with both a chocolate shortbread dough and chocolate chips folded in. Sounds amazing, right? It wasn't enough for us...
Oh my dog! Pierogi and Gilly are still wiped out from our outing to Miller Park! On Tuesday afternoon, we drove up to Milwaukee catch the Milwaukee Brewers play the San Francisco Giants, and to bark with what seemed to be, a few hundred other dogs. We arrived to the Park the perfect time -- just before the Dog Parade started, so we hopped right into the action and didn't slow down until we crashed at the end of the night. Here's some photos from the game, if you'd like to see...
Father's Day is under two weeks away, so today, we're sharing an easy Dog Father's Day gift idea. The gift combines something for dad and something for his best (dog) friend to enjoy together. Press play and then keep reading below...
This gift idea is so simple! Start by grabbing a gift card from your guy's favorite restaurant. Maybe that joint is the taco food truck that sets up in front of his office every Tuesday or your favorite Chicago style pizza place in your old neighborhood. Or, has he been talking up any place new? You could also create a homemade voucher (you know, "This voucher is good for one dinner with me at 'X' place") if you plan to dine together.
Next, find a dog toy that represents that restaurant well! Here's our taco and pizza toys. The cute foodie toy line also includes a sushi roll, french fries and a t-bone steak. Then, package the toy in a way similar to how the human version might be presented. We placed our taco in classic plastic food basket and our pizza on a simple plastic plate (we also love this style, which made us of think of New York City pizza slices :), along with a parchment paper to complete the look.
Finally, tuck in the restaurant gift card, add a pretty bow and attach our tag! The tag reads, "To the world's Best Dog Dad, Enjoy your next (insert food) with (insert doggie)!", which you can download below. How would you style your gift? What restaurants do you love? Any with dog friendly patios?
Woof! (Hey, there!) Pierogi, Gilly and Sarah here. Thanks for stopping by our dog blog. We're a little dog-obsessed around here and Pierogi & Co. is all about inspiring you to enjoy the dog days. Because life's more fun with your best (furry) friend by your side. So grab a bone and follow along as we stop to sniff the flowers...
