Great Gift Ideas from Finley

Hi Finley here,

Ahhh, it’s the most wonderful time of the year….. that time of the year when my house smells incredible and my humans bring that BIG tree into the house for me to sniff and check out all month long. My fellow canine friends at Cascade Kennels and I always like to talk about our favorite Christmas gifts we’ve gotten over the years. There were so many cool gifts that my friends and I talked about, so I just thought I’d share some of these great ideas with all of you. The BEST part about these gifts….you can make them all yourself so you don’t have to worry about spending too much money……… which we don’t care about anyway.

A new bed: Does your pet need a new bed? Ya know, pet beds can be a little spendy, but not if you make one out of an old suitcase like this:

Or a sweater like this: Just fill with cotton stuffing or old towels.
