Oliver and Humphrey would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter and a wonderful weekend - especially those of you lucky enough to have an extra long weekend to enjoy together. Remember to have fun but stay safe furfriends! You might like to check out the Easter (and spring) pet safety tips from the ASPCA to help plan a safer weekend. In particular, remember that chocolate is toxic to dogs, so be sure to keep your Easter treats well out of reach.
Most human Easter treats are not suitable for sharing with your pet, but everyone LOVES a good treat. Recent posts in our recipe collection for Easter (pictured above) include: Homemade Dog Easter Egg Carob Treats, Cream Cheese Easter Nest Dog Cookies, and Rainbow Funfetti Coconut Dog Treats. Check out all of our doggone delicious DIY dog treat recipe ideas for even more inspiration. We've made a few fun Easter toys as well, since playtime is the best part of long weekends together...well, maybe snuggly sleep-ins too. :) Check out our DIY Multi-Strand Tug Toy with Loop Handle, DIY Woven Fleece Carrot Dog Tug Toy, and our extra special DIY Easter Bunny Softie Squeaker Dog Toy collaboration with Creativity Unmasked. How pleased does Oli look with his new bunny? Check out all of our fun DIY dog toy tutorials for even more inspiration. For the fashion forward pups out there, we also have some cute DIY dog accessories like our Easy Sew Over-the-Collar Plaid Dog Bow Tie.
Of course, sometimes the simplest things still bring the greatest happiness. The easiest Easter dog treat of all might just be the humble carrot stick. :) Not just a favourite treat for bunnies, and healthy too! Look at happy Humphrey sampling a baby red dragon carrot from our veggie patch.
Have a very Happy Easter and we'll be back again next week with more fun doggy DIYs. Monday's weekly recipe will be delayed until Tuesday as we are going to power-down and spend some quality time having fun as a furfamily this long weekend. See you again soon! Woofs!
