New Puppy?

13 Sep

Do you (or someone you know) have a new puppy?  There’s nothing like a new puppy to add excitement to your life.  They’re so cute and full of energy!  Renee at The Stationery Studio just brought home this sweet puppy, Libby.  She’s a silver Lab and she’s adorable!  So what kind of gift do you give someone who gets a new puppy?  I made sweet Libby some homemade dog biscuits and put them in a reusable container.  I wanted to share the recipe with you … you can make these for any puppy (or any dog) who would love a yummy treat. WOOF!

 

Dog Biscuit Recipe (modified from Caser Millan’s original recipe)

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (substitute regular flour or oats if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
  • 1/2 c. ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. salt (or less)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Beef or chicken Bouillon granules (can substitute beef or chicken broth/stock)
  • ½ cup hot water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Dissolve bouillon in hot water
  3. Add remaining ingredients
  4. Knead dough until it forms a ball (approximately 3 minutes)
  5. Roll dough until ½ inch thick
  6. Cut into slices or bone shapes (you can purchase a bone shaped cookie cutter to make shapes with)
  7. Place dough pieces on lightly greased cookie sheet
  8. Cook for 30 minutes

Maybe baking isn’t your thing?  No worries.  Check out the great selection of personalized pet gifts we sell at The Stationery Studio.  We just customized a personalized pet bowl for Charlie, the new puppy on the Today Show.  How cute is he with his new personalized bowl?

Here Comes The Bride….with her Dog! Unique Wedding Party Ideas

Don't Forget Your Pet! Furry Friends Can Make Great Additions to Bridal Parties

Marrying your best friend means you’ve found the perfect match. But, brides and grooms who don’t want to leave out their original “best friend” can get creative in the party-planing process. From time-to-time, we ask our customer service representatives to tell us their favorite products.  They have great ideas from our customers, as well as from their own creative parties.  Our resident Mother-of-the-Groom, Fay, recently told us about her unique idea for a Rehearsal Wedding Luncheon she hosted for her son, his bride-to-be….and their dog “Sky,” who made his own special cameo:

“This was one of my favorite products ever, the Custom Rehearsal Dinner Invite from TheStationeryStudio.com.  It was great fun to select characters based on the bridal party, but best of all was the ability to include the beloved pet dog in the invitation.  All the characters resembled the individual people, but the dog that the artist  created really looked like “Sky”.  Just about everyone, family and friends, know that Daniel and Jacky are great pet lovers, so people really got a kick out of seeing him on the rehearsal invitation.  The biggest surprise was  during the wedding processional, when “Sky” walked down the bridal aisle.  He was accompanied by the 2 junior bridesmaids and wore a bow tie that said “Best Pet”.  He was a hit!  The wedding was a black tie formal event and it was lovely to have this casual rehearsal invitation sent and also the light hearted levity of having “Sky” part of the bridal party!”
