{Favorite Pet Bookmarks}

Our dogs are a huge part of our family, aren't yours? They are best friends to my kiddo, and truly they are members of the family. We don't know what we'd do without them!
On that note, my daughter is a giant bookworm and always has her nose stuck in a book. We spend one Saturday morning each month at the library, participating in their "Reading to Canines" program. VIPaws comes to the program room with 2-4 dogs each time, all gigantic sweethearts, and children can come and read to the dogs. It's a great way for new or struggling readers to build up some confidence while reading to an always-listening sweet dog that doesn't ever correct. :) We started doing it 2 years ago when my kiddo was just learning to read, and now we just do it to help feed her enormous love of dogs. For each reading, she gets to choose a bookmark of the dog she read to. She decided she wanted bookmarks of her own dogs, so we created these this morning. They are adorable!


All computer created...nothing fancy...super cute. :) I just created a text box in Word, inserted 2 favorite pics of our fur babies, and added details about each one. I printed them on cardstock, cut them out, and "laminated" them with clear contact paper. My kiddo thinks these are SO cool! How cute would these be with a ribbon at the top? My kiddo preferred them without, but I would go with a ribbon!
I would really like to try these Custom Pet Tees , too. They've been on my to-do list for a while. Maybe getting ready for back-to-school will get me motivated. They are adorable!

Thanks for dropping by!
