“Mommy, I am letting Elsa play with me and my toy doggie.”
For Christmas last year, my now almost 5 year old asked for a FurReal Puppy dog from Santa, even though she had a real life golden retriever puppy, who she helped in naming Elsa (yes she was named after the infamous Disney Frozen character).
Don’t get me wrong, our whole family, including my youngest, adores our now one year old dog, but still she wanted a fake version who would listen to her every command back last Christmas on top of her real life fur baby, too.
See this little lady is a bit on the bossy side at times.
Being the younger sister by 16 months, she usually is on the receiving end of being bossed around by her older sister though.
And yet our real life dog more than happily plays along more often than not now. After all, Elsa is not just another pretty face and truly a wise and loving dog, who knows how to sit, shake paw, lay down, come and even fetch.
But Elsa is the baby of the family, for all intents and purposes being our only fur baby. So where my 4 year old is concerned, this is her chance to rule the kingdom over Elsa, her younger sibling so to speak.
So this one Sunday recently, I pretty much got told how it was going down with the not quite 5 year old expecting Elsa to play along with her fake doggie and her, since her older sister was at soccer she turned to Elsa for her sole entertainment.
Poor Elsa just sat there obediently listening and even was being quite the mush for her.
Just another day with my girls spending quality time with each other.
Since Elsa is indeed pretty much like one of my girls, I try my best to not leave her out ever either, like when I go shopping for school snacks for the girls at Target weekly, I usually pick her up a snack or treat, as well.
Recently, I was turned onto Purina Beyond Snacks White Meat Chicken Cutlets Natural Dog Snacks for Elsa, which can be found at Target in their dog treat aisle. Target really is one of my go-to stores for my family to be quite honest.
What we love about these treats are that Elsa not only seems to enjoy them, but they are a healthy and natural snack for her, which are made with real chicken as the #1 ingredient, without using corn, wheat, or soy.
Trust me dogs (Elsa included) know the difference and where real meat is concerned they most definitely will show their appreciation. These treats also don’t contain any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and are grain-free. Plus these snacks are crafted in the USA (Arkansas) in small batches.
And as much as I treat Elsa pretty much daily throughout the year, I still can’t help, but do a little something extra special with her for holidays, too.
Since Halloween is right around the corner and both my daughters have personalized Halloween treat bags for trick-or-treating, I thought I would make a special personalized DIY treat bag for Elsa to put some Halloween treats in for her, as well.
It was fairly simple and inexpensive to make (most of my supplies came from The Dollar Tree and Target, plus a free printable that I created and I will include below for you), but definitely a keeper.
I am so happy to share with you my quick tutorial for my DIY Personalized Dog Halloween Treat Bag, so that you can make your very own for your special fur doggie, too.
