Treat Your Pup on Valentine's Day!

We love our sweet Charley girl!  She's our eleven year old Beagle that I've blogged about before.  She is definitely part of our family.  In fact, she has gifts under our tree at Christmas time just like our kids do.  So it's only natural that we think of her at Valentine's Day!  Today I'm sharing my simple, inexpensive ways that you can #TreatThePups with Valentine's Day treats too. 

Charley is definitely one of the most photogenic pups I've ever known.  When I pull out the camera, she literally stops and poses.  In many pictures, it even looks like she's smiling. 

Like this one... 

and this one...

I love to craft, so I bought some Pup-Peroni Dog Treats and some Mini Milkbones (aren't they so teeny and cute!) from Walmart in the Dog Treats aisle, along with a few simple crafts supplies.

Then I got to work making a special Valentine for Charley- I just painted the wooden frame red (purchased at Walmart for $1) and once it dried, I hot glued mini Milkbones all around the inner part of the frame, tied on a red & white polka dot ribbon, and put in my favorite picture of our sweet Charley girl! 

I love that picture because Charley looks so sweet, sitting there giving the camera her best "puppy eyes." And our sweet 4-year old son just LOVES Charley so we're going to put the frame in his room so he can always look at her cute face. 

I also picked up some of Charley's very favorite treats, Pup-Peroni Dog Treats.  Using a cute kraft box from my craft stash, I pulled off the ribbon that came with the box and added my red & white polka dot ribbon.  Inside, Charley will be thrilled to find a box full of Pup-Peroni Dog Treats all for her!  

This site has free printable Valentine's that I'll be printing to add to my Pup-Peroni Valentine that I know Charley will love.  

There you have it- sweet, simple ideas to #TreatThePups and show them that you love them  on Valentine's Day!  What about you?  Do you give your pet special gifts on holidays too?  I'd love to hear what you do for your furry friends- leave me a comment and let me know! xoxo

Love your Valentine's Day ideas. That frame is adorable. I think my daughter would love one of her pup, too. And yes, that is an amazingly photogenic dog. :) #client
