A New Way to Recycle

We started with this...

Added one of these...

With some of this thrown in the mix...
(metal landscape egding is exactly what that is)

And we ended up with this...

Which resulted in a serious case of doggy anxiety, almost requiring a large prescription of Xanax for the dog and myself. So we opted to get rid of the cone but needed to keep the dog from licking her bandages right off her feet. My husband thought a pair of hiking socks and duct tape (lots of duct tape) would do the trick. The dog looked like a duct tape experiement gone very, very wrong.

Some rummaging through the house and I came up with this solution...
That's right, Baby Legs for our furry baby. Now isn't that better?!

And yes, they were spotted on this baby last summer...

And the best part is, we have more than one pair...


We think Lola will look dashing in a purple pair for Easter.

So yes, if your dog also decides to chase a squirrel, run along the garden edging, cut her feet, tear her tendons, bleed all over your lawn, require emergency Sunday night surgery, followed by bed rest (just try to keep a dog down), chaos with a doggy cone (definitely the mark of shame) and a rigorous schedule of drugs, bandaging and care then you too can stop by and get some Baby Legs for your furry baby.

P.S. Yes, we will be very busy repairing the garden edging this weekend so the kiddos don't get hurt. I'm pretty sure they would object to a cone around their neck too.

Waste Not(e)!

We love to do our part to celebrate eco-friendly and earth friendly varities of stationery and inks. This chart outlines one of our favorite paper lines and what they do to waste not when it comes to notes.
