FAQ: Ink vs Vinyl

One of the most common questions to date is which is better: ink or vinyl? Well, they both have their own benefits. When you think about it, the vinyl sits on top of the clothing so it can adhere to a variety of fabrics & colours whereas ink fuses into the clothing, so it isn't prone to crack, peel or wrinkle like vinyl.

Top 3 favourite winter toys (according to Waylon)

When bringing toys out into the snow what I look at is: Is it easy to wipe off / how water resistant or proof is it? How gross will it be after? Will it be easy to keep outside or will Waylon barge through the door with it? Now, here's our current top 3 favourite outside winter toys 1) JollyPets Tug N Toss This comes in at #1 because it's easy to wipe down, holds up in the snow or rain very well and is "puncture proof". It also has a warranty so if you dog destroys it then they replace the first one easily. The other varieties can get gross outside with the rope added and this one is easy...

Easy Sweet Potato Chews

 This may be one of the easiest dog chews you can make without stinking up the house. It does take awhile to cook/dehydrate, so try to allocate enough time in your day to monitor the oven: in total you'll need 6hrs. Preheat oven to 250 degrees fahrenheit. Cut up sweet potato into slices or sticks depending on what you want to do. I cut them between 0.5-1cm thick just to see how it altered the cooking time and it wasn't too dramatic.

Dog Friendly Kimberley

Living is Kimberley is a breeze if you have a dog. Not only was almost every shop dog friendly, but they have a dog water fountain over by the Creme cheese shop. Lots of shops have water bowls out for pups and if you go in to ask for water to fill your portable dog bowl they are more than willing to. Waylon would even come with us to Cranbrook as the places we went there were dog friendly, and if they weren't then Waylon and I would go bug Stephanie at the PawShop while my husband shopped or we'd walk around the green spaces. To be honest, it would be easier to write the shops that weren't dog friendly...

Beef Liver & Cheese Treat Recipe

This recipe was too much for one puppy to finish, so we had to freeze a number of treats. Also, after making this I went for a run and swear I sweat pure beef liver (GROSS). Do not attempt this recipe if you do not like the smell of beef liver as it lingers. When looking up beef liver recipes I also noticed the discussions around their dogs behaviour while it was cooking and I can confirm they go a bit nutty. Waylon waits by the oven until it comes out. I cut a tiny piece to dry quickly for his official taste test. 1 cup beef liver 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1 egg 1/2 cup whole wheat flour...
