Weimaraner Love
curated by H is for Home

Once again, Fudge is throwing a tantrum. “I WANT AN ETSY LIST!”, he howled.

“OK, OK!”, we relent. “What do you want to do?”, we begged.

“Everybody loves a Weimaraner!”, he wimpered.

“Have it on our desk by Monday morning!”, we barked.

You get the picture…

selection of 5 large dog beds

Fudge needs a new dog bed. His current wicker one is falling apart. It’s probably because it gets carried up and down the stairs numerous times per day. Fudge doesn’t know the feeling of bare floorboards against his bare backside – and he’d like to keep it that way!

Wednesday Wish: Hello my name is…

"Hello my name is..." pet ID tag
“Hello my name is” pet ID tag: $9.99, eBay

We finally got round to buying a new collar for Fudge this weekend – the old one had popped off a couple of times recently leaving us holding on to a dangling empty lead! He also lost his ID tag some months ago somewhere up in the Pennine hills so now’s a good time to replace that as well.

We love the red square “Hello my name is” tag that’s designed to look like those naff stickers you get stuck to your lapel on arrival at a conference.

Doggie draught excluder

"Doggie draught excluder" blog post banner

dachshund-shaped draught excluder handmade in Harris tweed by Queenie on Notonthehighstreet

We already have one dog that guards the door. Fudge our Weimaraner is ever alert to everything – from potential intruders to the morning post – reacting with equal madness to both! But just in case he needs back-up, here’s his new partner.

It’s always good to receive items in the post that combine excellent packaging with that nice personal touch. Once released, he was ready for action. In addition to assisting Fudge in the security detail, his main duty will of course be to keep out those nasty winter draughts!

We found our new doggie draught excluder in Queenie by Margo Elder’s shop on Notonthehighstreet. He’s beautifully handmade from genuine Harris tweed and comes in a variety of colourways. Here he is pictured with a few of his friends.
