Our dog Sally is very special to us, she brings joy and unconditional love into our lives. She is always happy and she makes our lives more interesting with her fun and playful personality. She is such a fantastic companion and a true best friend to my daughter Ariane. Sally is a very smart dog who seems to understand everything we tell her whether we say it in Spanish or English; yup, Sally is bilingual too!

We think that Halloween treats and fun should not be just for kids (and adults) but also for four legged best friends; our Sally deserves a special Halloween treat too! To surprise Sally I created a BOO’ing bundle that reflects our family’s heritage and our obsession with everything Day of the Dead!

I filled a Day of the Dead inspired coffin box with some of Sally’s favorite treats including PEDIGREE® MARROBONE™ Real Beef Flavor Treats, PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX™ Fresh Treats andCESAR® SAVORY DELIGHTS® ROTISSERIE CHICKEN FLAVOR WITH BACON & CHEESE.

Because she is such a playful dog who thinks that she is still a puppy even if she’s about to celebrate her 7th birthday I made her a dog toy using an old Day of the Dead sock and a tennis ball.

To make this throw toy all you have to do is put the ball inside the sock and tie a knot on each side of the ball. To make things more interesting you can cut the ball open and put a couple of treats inside it.

To make your dog this special BOOing bundle start with your Day of the Dead dog gift box. Check out the instructions on how to make it and get the printable design HERE. Once your box is ready pick a contrasting color of tissue paper, I bought mine at Walmart from American Greetings®. Then you can fill the box with different treats and toys for your pet!

As you can see Sally really loved her treats and her toy. I specially like the PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX™ Fresh Treats as they as they not only help maintain her teeth clean but they give her a fresh clean breath.

    Que brillante idea. Se puede hacer con otros diseños y regalarse en otras ocaciones también. Cumoleaños, Navidad o Easter. Gracias por la idea!
