Easy DIY Dog Birthday Cake and Cake Stand!


Hallelujah, Spring is here!  After about 500 days (only a slight exaggeration) of nothing but rain here in Seattle, Sebastian and I were more than ready to get outside for some fun colorful pictures.  Here's our latest DIY and it's a super easy no-skills-needed kind of project.

I thought of this idea when Starbucks surprised us with a "Puppuccino" one day.  I'd never heard of it. Sebastian was hanging out the window as we were going through the drive-thru and the Barista asked him if he wanted one.  I said, "a what?" in my protective motherly voice.  He then brought us a cup filled with whipped cream and Sebastian went nuts for it.  Turns out the Puppuccino is a real thing and it's part of Starbucks secret menu.


Just these two pieces complete your cake stand.  I was so excited when I found this candle holder because I knew it would be perfect.  It's from Hobby Lobby and they have so many different heights (so pick one according to the size of your pet).  The clear bowl is just a small cat dish and it fit on top of the candle holder perfectly.  Score!


With just 3 ingredients, I was able to create a masterpiece I'm pretty sure no dog would turn down.  Sebastian is an Instinct boy so we stuck with his fabulous grain-free Instinct treats we already had at home.


And as you build the cake, 


Be prepared to have onlookers too (and we are not talking about just humans).  If you like Sebastian's hat, you can buy it here in our shop!


Now that looks like something to bark about.


I should also mention the Starbucks Puppuccino is ONLY whipped cream and served in a cup.  Yawn.


Sebastian says we just one-upped Starbucks.


Hmmmm, he might be skipping dinner tonight.


If you are having a birthday party, you'll definitely need to have the appropriate props for your photos.  Get Sebastian's entire birthday suit look here in our shop handmade by me!

Sebastian Weighs In: How Should a Dog Wear Pants?


In all seriousness, how should a dog wear pants?  Sebastian weighs in on this dilemma circulating the internet as we speak.


We think both styles look legit.  
But you should add suspenders for extra support (Sebastian says he had to learn that the hard way)!




Now get off the internet and go put some pants on!

DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater: Present Style


It's that time of year again and Sebastian's Ugly Christmas Sweater collection is starting to pile up higher than he'd like to admit.  This year, we chose to do a simple look that's possibly more cute than ugly.  What do you think?


Get This Look:
-2 yards ribbon (we used 2" width)
-Plain dog sweater (we made our own, but you can buy a pre-made one like this one here)
-Sewing machine or fabric glue (depending on your level of experience and patience)
-One button for center of bow
-Hand sewing needle and thread
-Present tag and sharpie


Since we made the tee from scratch, I was able to customize it even more with this fuzzy green stretch material creating long sleeves and a turtleneck. Yowza!


This project is super easy and quick.  I made it in about an hour total (including sewing the tee together). 

As always, Sebastian was eager to hit the streets in his new look!


Sebastian can't help but notice how much more attention he gets when he's dressed to impress.


Sebastian's style advice: Wear a color that pops with the color of your fur.


We stopped by our local coffee shop - Queen Bee Cafe -  not just to show off, but because the coffee is really good...Oh and because they allow (well-behaved) dogs! 


Oh, the joys of being so cute.


We wanna know - Whats your fashion game plan this holiday season?  Send us pics to share on our Facebook page!

Sebastian Goes to Alaska!

Last week, we headed North for our very first trip to Alaska.  We stayed in a cozy little cabin at the Chena Hot Springs Resort in Fairbanks.  As usual, Sebastian poses to tell the story of our trip in photos.


The steam from the hot springs is obvious all over the resort.


And the humans aren't the only ones who enjoy it!


That's our cozy little cabin in the background, which gladly allows up to two pets.  We highly recommend it for all our dog moms and dads out there.  You can check it out here.


As tiny as Sebastian is, he looooooves the snow.


Snow trails and several layers of clothes - for everyone!


Here he is outside the Ice Museum on site at the resort.


Mini frozen lakes on the side of the highway are plentiful.


We pulled over to catch some sun rays too.


Unexpectedly, we found out we were just one hour from the "North Pole."  We ended up at the Santa Claus House where we went crazy at the fudge bar.


And apparently Santa is not on the clock.  


Sebastian feelin' sexy in his new buffalo plaid hoodie handmade by his momma. He fit right in with the locals, I'd say.


But of course nothing beats the view of a sleeping pup.

Rattlesnake Lake and Rattlesnake Ledge Hike

We went on a little hike just 45 minutes outside of Seattle.  We couldn't help but notice how odd this place looked with hundreds of tree stumps covering the ground.


Turns out, the drought has caused this lake to drop 29 feet revealing old-growth tree stumps from a forest cleared long ago.  


Here's Sebastian smiling at the top of Rattlesnake Ledge, only 1100 feet above the lake!  We passed a ridiculous amount of dogs on this trail and we highly recommend this adventure for dogs of all sizes.


Here you can see just how much the lake has shrunk down below.  And we are happy to report we did not see any rattlesnakes!  Read up on the very interesting history of this area here.



XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian
