Shrinky Dink Dog Tags

So, today’s fun craft was making new tags for the doggies. I used shrinky dink plastic and colored pencils to color them. Benjamin got a sea turtle, because he always lays like one. China got a lotus blossom. I based the art off of tattoos found online because the style went nice with the colored pencils.

No photos of the tags on yet – I have to wait for them to dry. I put a couple layers of varnish on the back side where my colored pencil is (I colored them backwards).

Snow Nose or Winter Nose

Benny has a "snow nose". It's when a dog's black nose turns pink in the cold weather months. It may or may not turn black again in the spring. His has gotten quite pink over the past month!


Good morning!

Good morning... We are being lazy so far and watching the news. My stomach wants me to get up, though. What's for breakfast?



I am going to order Benny a new tag for his collar. He's had a crappy vending machine one since he was a baby and the color is wearing off. I'm getting one that is hand-stamped metal with his name and my phone number on the back and a tag line on the front.

The company suggests a lot of tag lines, but you can order what you want. What should I get?

A quick Rock Band note... I have a blog for that over on rockband.com so I'm not filling my journal up talking about it. Check it out here. If you have an account, send me a friend request! I'm still really enjoying singing and feel so much less stressed and sick now that I've been spending time with it. Now, if I could just figure out a way to keep my allergies from interfering with my singing abilities, it would be great.

Yesterday, Benny and I worked at the Super Pet Expo for our company's booth. Benny was so, so good. He was stressed when we arrived - I'd never seen it so busy. Even *I* was stressed! But, once we settled into our booth, we were both fine. I wore my Stunt Puppy convertible leash around my waist the whole time. Benny sat or laid beside me, greeted dogs, and let all sorts of children and adults give him hugs and love. Not once did he ever jump. He even did great when a man in a wheelchair wanted to love on him.

A half hour before the show closed, Benny and I got the opportunity to do a quick run of all the aisles (we had originally hoped to do that with Laura and her boyfriend when we first arrived, but circling the parking lot took up all my spare time.) Benny and I made a stop at three different bakeries for treats. Everyone was great about pointing out which treats would work with his poultry allergy. We ended up with: peanut butter bones, apple snaps, beef patties, cheesy sesame twists, peanut butter canoli and a lamb and rice bone. And, being that it was the final hour of the final day, We got a lot of leftover/broken cookies as a bonus. The only other place we spent money was the golden retriever rescue, where we made a donation and got a cute bone key chain.

At break-down time, Benny did great once again, calmly following at my side as we torn down the booth and packed up. He is such a good little man.

For those curious, Benny wears an Easy Walk harness. The feeling of resistance that his collar was making was causing him to pull even harder. With the front-attached harness, he walks calmly, and if he pulls (which is rare), he is turned to face me by the leash.
