Pets are not only man's best friend but definitely a child's best friend.
They are their companion, best friend, someone they can go to when they need a cuddle, & someone to love unconditionally.
Pets are also a great way to introduce some responsibility into their lives.
Feeding them, giving them fresh water, keeping them warm, learning to be gentle & kind.
We have a dog at home, or as I would like to call him our fur child.
Say hello to Charlie Bear, my cavoodle & absolutely my third child. I love him to bits.
He is an inside dog, & has his own spot to relax on, however, I will admit to snuggling up with him on the couch.
There is one thing I will draw the line with....No dogs in my bed, not under my doona no no no. I say this without judgment if you do, no probs, I just would rather not.
I made a cushion for one of Charlotte's friends a few months ago for her birthday, with photos of her two dogs on it.
Why do you ask? I am not joking, this is one child who has everything.
I knew she loved her two dogs, so I asked her mum would she like a cushion with Stella & Storm on it. The look in her eyes was excitement & a big YES followed.
The response of this cushion was completely overwhelming.
The happiness from her was above & beyond what I ever expected.
Why.....Because now she can sleep with her dogs.
I love the simplicity of her reason, the pure joy, innocence, happiness & excitement.
Pet cushions whether it's a dog, cat, rabbit or goldfish are a great idea for kids who have a really special bond with their pets.
They are perfect for the kids to sleep with, & ideal when you go on holidays. The kids won't miss them quite as much.
They are also a beautiful memory for kids who are struggling with the loss of their pet. Even though they are in pet heaven now, they are a beautiful memory for them to have, & to keep close while they go through that hard time.
They are really easy to create, just send me a photo that is clear & bright.
All of the important details on how to buy & create your pet cushion are outlined here.
What a great idea for Christmas also, whether it's for the kids, or if you know anybody who is obsessed with their pet. The perfect & so personal gift for that hard to buy for friend or family member.
I am so happy to say that the interest & orders of the pet cushions have been so overwhelming. What makes me happiest is knowing how many well treated & loved pets are out there.
But nothing makes me happier than knowing the kids can now sleep with their furry (or not) best friend. No fur. No smell. No accidents.
