Sensational Schnauzer Cake

I love cakes. I like to make them, I love to decorate them, and above all adore eating them!

In my hunt for all things schnauzer this weekend, I stumbled across this absolutely amazing cake. Made by the Designer Cake Company, it features a pepper and salt schnauzer in a tiffany inspired gift box.   I can safely say it is one of the best celebration cakes I’ve seen so far that features a realistic take on our beardy ones.  I believe the dog decoration is made over a polystyrene blank and if you were really careful could be lifted off and saved.  I’m definitely going to be asking for something like this for my next big birthday – although I’m not sure I would have the heart to cut it!

It’s a Dog’s Life!

I love seeing my dogs looking so relaxed and comfortable, but some days (like today when I’m rushed off my feet) there is nothing I wouldn’t do to swap places with them. Lucky things :)

It’s Snow Joke

With the wintery weather upon us at the moment, there isn’t much else you can do when you have dogs, but strap on the snow boots and warm clothes and go and have some fun. Milo loves the white stuff nearly as much as he loves his tennis ball. The two together are a match made in heaven!

A Dog’s Age in Dog Years

It is commonly thought that a dog’s age is roughly calculated as seven dog years for every human year. However those with dogs will know, that it really does depend on the size of your dog when calculating how old they would be in dog years.

This cool graphic shows how to calculate your dog’s age, dependant on it’s size.

Based on this, it would make Archie 45 in human years, Lola 39 and Milo 31!

It is nice to see that I’m not the only thirty-something year old in the house.  :)

Infographics Rule!

I love infographics. They can be quirky, fun, colourful and interesting… and there are no rules or constraints to their presentation. You can create them about pretty much anything and they’re a fantastic way of sharing curious information across the interweb.

With our focus on dogs, it made sense to start with canine related material for the first swathe of infographics we produced for Pet365.  This one is my favourite.

It Is About Time

So, here it is, my blog! It’s been something I’ve been thinking and talking about doing for a long time and I’ve actually managed to get off my backside to get it sorted.

With 3 mad Schnauzers in my life, there is never a dull moment! They can be frustrating, stubborn, challenging, funny, sweet, loving and above all really good fun; I couldn’t be without them. I wanted to write a blog to share some of our stories, photos and hopefully helpful posts to all dog (or animal) lovers out there as I trip my way through my life with my furry friends.

I hope that you’ll enjoy the journey with me.
