Dog treat gift bottles: make homemade dog treats and recycle bottles into beautiful gifts!

This post started with us wondering what to do with the massive amount of Starbucks Frappuccino bottles we have collected. They are very nice bottles, so we don’t really want to throw them out, but they’ve been sitting on our shelves for awhile and we feel guilty whenever we get a new one.

So, we decided to combine two projects we’ve been thinking about — decorating the bottles and making doggie treats.

First, we’ll show you the end result.

Homemade doggie treats ready to give as a gift! (And in a recycled bottle.)

Yet more stuff you can do with your pet photos

Our cat, Motor, approves of this post.

In our earlier post, we talked about how it’s a good idea to get all your pet photos together in one place, such as Flickr.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably notice that you have some particular favorite photos of your pet. You might also have some of your pet misbehaving or acting silly or funny or otherwise making you say, “Wow, I can’t believe my pet did THAT!” If that’s the case, feel free to submit a copy of your photo to us. We’d love to add it to our Wow My Pet Did That! gallery. Continue reading “Yet more stuff you can do with your pet photos”

More stuff you can do with your pet photos

Previously we posted about uploading your pet photos to Flickr.

You can also try an online photo collage maker, such as Postermywall.

Then you can upload a photo or photos your pet from your computer, or from Google Drive, Dropbox Photos or Facebook. Continue reading “More stuff you can do with your pet photos”

What can you do with your pet photos?

You have twenty or so recent pics of your kitty or pup on your cellphone and you whip it out to show them off to your friend. You may or may not notice your friend’s eyes’ glazing over after the third or fourth photo, but they likely are.

No matter how cute our pets are, their pics just aren’t that exciting for others to look at. Just think of all the photos you have clicked of your fluffy or scaly or feathery friend that you have stored away that you yourself aren’t even looking at, even though you really do plan to at some point and you know that number is growing exponentially by the day.

Like most pet owners with a growing pet photo collection, you probably have some photos on your cellphone, some have been shared on social media, others are on a computer, others are on storage cards from digital cameras, some may be backed up on Google Drive…

So, how can you bring them all together into a collection fairly easily and then what can you do with that collection? Continue reading “What can you do with your pet photos?”
