Do you think I put enough f’s in my blog post title?
You can never go wrong with some alliteration, Ma!

Today I’m excited to share something that is not-so-exciting, but super important as the holidays approach and that is…safety for your dog. From now until the end of the year, pets are faced with more tempting hazards than ever — decorations, candles, flickering lights, chocolate and more.

Dane and I just moved into a new house, so I thought Halloween and BOO-ing would be the perfect opportunity to put a little something together for our new neighbors’ pooches to warn about fall hazards and offer a few first aid items in the form of a BOO BOO Bag. Everyone close to us has a dog so I think I’ve finally found my pack and they should know pretty early on that I’m a #crazydoglady.

 To get this project rolling, I went to Walmart to pick up some PEDIGREE® MARROBONE™ Real Beef Flavor Treats, PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX™ Fresh Treats & CESAR® SAVORY DELIGHTS® Rotisserie Chicken Flavor with Bacon & Cheese. I made sure to get an assortment of sizes to suit the needs of my neighbors! While you’re at the store, be sure to also grab cotton balls/gauze pads, tape, an ace bandage, band-aids and a case of water bottles. You can add/subtract as much as you want, but those are some classic pet-based first aid staples. For the actual BOO BOO Bags, I picked up some gift bags and tissue paper from the American Greetings section.While we never want to think of worst case scenarios for our dogs — fall is full of them, so being prepared is essential.

When I got home, I divided out all of the materials I needed for each bag and stuffed them into a decorative gift bag along with the BOO’d card.
I included a zip tie in mine, because you never know when those may come in handy for keeping a bandage in place, keeping a collar secure, etc.

As soon as I was finished, I rounded up Judy & Bill to deliver our goodies to the neighbors!

One neighbor saw me doing it so hopefully I’ve inspired her to do a little boo-ing of her own 🙂

 

How will you BOO It Forward this holiday?

    Such a cute idea! I don't think our neighbors want to have anything to do with our large beasts! They all look at me like I am crazy when I walk the dogs. LOL
