It was a rainy Sunday, a three-day weekend and I came home from the grocery store to find a Chihuahua hanging around our front yard. As I unloaded grocery bags, he stayed around. He was so cute.
No collar, no barking, big eyes. I thought he must be someone's dog, so I thought we should hold him in the backyard until the weather got better. Maybe he got out in the storm and someone would be posting about him in our neighborhood website.
Not having any dog food in the house, we gave him some water and cooked chicken. The following days we searched the neighborhood website, lost pet sites and even drove around our side of town to look for signs of a lost Chihuahua. Next step was to see if he had a chip.
Nothing. No chip. We had no idea where he came from!
But since we were at the vet, we decided to get him make him ours. He has been such a special addition to our family, it is like he was just meant to be! I mean, look at that smile!
Because we don't know his actual birthday every year or so, we spoil Papi with a pamper basket. But anything that I purchase for our pet, or for others has to fit one of the three: Functional, Family & Fun! Here’s how easy it is to make a pet pamper basket:
- Make it functional. Whether it's a comfy bed, or a bin to keep all your pets things, the owner will appreciate it. Throwing in a bag of dog food from the Dog Chow family is always a bonus! Purina Dog Chow has new packaging, so look out for the new colors!
- Match the family. We are a pretty neutral family, so I love pet products that fit in our style. We choose a grey blanket so he can be nice and cozy this fall!
- Make it fun! Papi is a part of our family, so keeping him engaged and healthy is important to us. Choose items that we can play with together, like this football chew toy!
