Last Wednesday was a really warm, pretty day so my boyfriend, mom, and stepdad and I decided to go fishing. We got everything ready and got in the boat and started towards the middle of the pond. I decided to let Koda off his leash so he could walk around the boat and lay out in the sun. Just a few minutes after I unhooked his leash, I heard a splash! Koda jumped out of the back of the boat into the pond! I couldn't believe it...he doesn't like water very much. He must have not realized how deep it was. He quickly swam back to the boat and I helped him back in. He didn't try that again! ha. The rest of the trip he enjoyed laying in the sun and watching fish being reeled in to the boat.
So as you know from a recent post I tried to cut Koda's hair myself instead of taking him to the groomers. It didn't turn out so well...so today I tried again. His hair had grown out a little so I thought I could touch it up and make it look a little better than before. I took one of my followers advice and trimmed up his legs - front and back. I think this was great advice and he looks much better now! What do you think?
I also got an order for an stainless steel personalized dog bowl recently. I thought it turned out really great! I hope Luna from Texas loves her new bowl!
A few days ago I was chosen to be the first Etsy shop selected for a "Crafty Interview" on the Little Gray Fox Blog. I was very excited. I had never been interviewed about LuckyPups before. Little Gray Fox emailed me a few questions and I sent her back the replies. Very soon afterward my interview was posted. She even added pictures! I think she did a fantastic job setting it up. It looks great! Go check it out :)
Today I wanted to try something new so I etched a matching food and water bowl set. I decided to etched the entire bowl and leave the text clear glass. Usually I do the opposite, etch the text and leave the bowl clear. For the design I used a fun font and labeled the bowls with "Food" and "Water". On the very bottom of the water bowl I etched a paw print. This way when you look through the water the paw print will show. I left the bottom of the food bowl clear since the food will be covering it up.
For the photos I used Molly from Luckypups Corgis and Shelties to be the puppy model. Molly is Izzy's sister. Her new home will soon be in New York.
Today I received an order from my Etsy shop for two fancy glass dog bowls etched with the name Ebony inside a bone shape. Since I had some free time and I was etching a few glasses for a wedding shower anyways, I decided to etch the Etsy order for the bowls as well. This is the first time I got to etch one of my new fonts. The customer chose the 1st font choice out of the 15 choices. This was a great decision. The bowls turned out beautifully! I know Ebony will be one spoiled little puppy!
So I TRIED to cut Koda's hair yesterday. I wanted him to have a lion cut like Preston Casanova but with the shortest part a little longer than Preston's. Since i'm an art major I thought I could do this myself instead of taking him to the groomers...but I thought wrong! If you look at him from the front it looks pretty good but from the back...YUCK! Hopefully it will grow out soon!
This is my first blog and I'm really excited about it. I have seen many Etsy shops with blogs and I finally decided to take the challenge and start my very own. I will be blogging about my Etsy shop - LuckyPups Pet Supplies, my Pomeranian Koda, and anything else crafty or pet related. I may also posting updates on my mom's Corgis and Shelties. She raises champion bloodline puppies. She even lets me use the adorable puppies for models :). You can read more about her at LuckyPups Corgis and Shelties. I hope you all enjoy!
