This summer we even took him with us on a family road trip. A first for us!
We were headed to Padre Island and favorite hotel is pet friendly, so why not? It was his first time on a long car ride and his first time at the beach, in the sand.
It was a sweet memory for us and heartfelt to see how close my kids have grown to him. They talk to him lovingly, cuddle with him and say little words in Spanish, it melts my heart! So much so that I thought it would be cute to make matching square knot bracelets and a collar, so they could BBF forever or PV, por vida, as we used to say! LOL!
So here's how it goes to make a square knotted collar. You will need twine or waxed cotton cords (a couple different colors), a collar, tape and scissors on hand.
Step 1: Make sure the extend the collar to fit your dog's neck correctly.
Step 2: Cut about 80" of twine for a small collar.
Step 3: For your starting point, thread the jute where the loop for the dog tag is.
Step 4: Begin your square knots, alternating sides. At the end, cut and seal with clear nail polish.
For the matching bracelet, use the same materials. Start with a 60" twine of the color you want shown (blue in picture). Cut a second color about 18" for the middle (green in picture). You will also need a third string about 10" (mint in picture). Follow along below!
And there you go, so cute, right?! Make as many as you want for your family members or pets and you're sure to have these sweet memories last as long as Purina's 90 years of proven nutrition. Be sure to look out for the new Dog Chow packaging, from Puppy to Dog, they've got you covered!
