You know those half wine barrel planters you can get from Lowe's or Home Depot this time of year? With the help of a jigsaw, some sand paper, a little stain and some polyurethane (if you like).....you could make this dog bed in 2 hours or less. (Thank you Maverick Homestead (FB) for this adorable image!)
Rainy day equals smelly dog! I don't have time to give him a bath and he'd just get dirty 5 seconds later in the wet grass. To take care of a smelly dog, I use my homemade doggy spray. I mix about 20 drops of Purification essential oil and witch hazel in a 2 oz bottle. I spray him down as needed.
