I told you the other day that I’m a mama for the first time. A modern family is a man, a woman and a dog. So now we are Desmond, Antonia and Piccolo. There are many pros and cons of having a dog but the biggest pro is that there is a little being that just wants to love you. That’s also the case with our little Italian Greyhound (name in Italian: Piccolo Levriero Italiano). Next to being a super cute little girl, Piccolo is such a happy-maker.
Desmond and Piccolo on the West Coast… she is tiny ;)
Of course I did some doggy research and found some cool and hilarious things. First of all, I found the best dog blog.
This vintage upcycled suitcase-dog-bed made me smile. If I find an old suitcase, it could be a cool DIY project. Also, the pet feeder… awesome (both by Atomic Attic).
Some people even get dog tattoos :)
I love the dog crate idea by Tom Davie so much that it’s my weekend-project.
Also, I found a cool dog-poster.
Plus, I read about a super cool dog-prisoner story.
“The Safe Harbor Prison Dog Program is a wonderful organization that gives both man and man’s best friend a second chance at life. Started back in 2004, the organizers behind Safe Harbor had this lofty goal in mind: “to save as many dogs as we can, provide them with safe harbor, and give them a second chance at life.” Safe Harbor rescues dogs that have been mistreated, abandoned, and sent to high-kill animal shelters across the Midwest. Once rescued, they are sent to the Lansing Correctional Facility, where 100 inmates, trained as animal handlers, foster the dogs.”
P.S. There’s even a hipster puppies tumblr :)
