What a whirlwind summer.  Lots of changes and events going on.  Been busy updating with all the new jewelry here in the store, creating Pupscicle chill wraps (which I'll feature in another blog post) and working out a design for the perfect doggy poop bag holder so you can scoop in style.  Both new items are now available at my booths and hopefully soon here at the store.   I attended the Hintonburg Artisan Market yesterday.  Coming up is the Navan Farmers Market on August 12 as well as three days of the Kingston Sheep Dog Trials the same weekend...

Ottawa Pet Expo this month was a huge success but also as a result most of our feeder stock has been depleted.  The wood shop is outside with limited heat, so during the winter months production slows to a sluggish speed.  Never fear though we can still do some orders, but the delivery time may be slower.  If you see a feeder you must have or have a custom request please send a message through the email me form and I can discuss how to have your pooch dining in style in no time.  You can check through the feeders...

We are already booking ahead in Gryphons busy schedule of running through swamps and being a couch hog (hopefully not in the same order) and getting ready for his Halloween close up! I'm working on a new costume this year as his bumble bee costume, while adorable, is a little snug.  Here are two not to be missed events from a couple of our favourite pet stores and groomers!   Both of these businesses are owned locally and strive to only carry the best quality treats, food and toys for your pets.  They also both support local entrepreneurs like myself!...

  Barking Bone Designs has relocated back to Gatineau Quebec to make it even easier to service the Ottawa area.  While moving if always far from smooth, this has been a great change for Gryphon and I.  Gryphon has been very busy patrolling the front window and checking out his new backyard.  While this new yard is smaller than before, our front yard includes bike paths, a beautiful park and tons of trails galore.  Gryphon is also back near his favourite dog park at Jardins-Lavigne park.    This weekend I will also be at the annual Sit With Me Picnic...

So how do customized pet art  and  hand crafted raised pet feeders go together? Well they don't really except for the fact that both projects were inspired by dog Gryphon. This Wolfhound/Saint Bernard Mix bounded into my life when he was a stray from Montreal and I was working a gatineau shelter.  His unique needs (a much taller bowl to suit his gangly frame) and his extreme ability to inspire works of art have impacted all aspects of my life.  I just finished uploading and inventory of my current wooden feeders I have in stock, and I must say I...
