DIY Tennis Ball Dog Toy - keep your dog from destroying all her tennis balls with this easy DIY toy tutorial!

Hi, my name is Amanda and I’m the kind of person that stays home on a Friday night and makes DIY dog toys.

You’re okay with that, right?

I’m also already contemplating Halloween costumes for all my dogs. Their Halloween picture from last year is still one of my favorites I’ve ever taken and this year’s needs to be even better. I’m thinking about a theme this year. Any ideas?

If you weren’t aware, I’m kind of a crazy dog lady.

And by “kind of”, I mean I’m pretty much the craziest dog lady that ever lived.


I was actually playing around with starting a dog blog and then I realized that all I really wanted to do was post homemade treat recipes and pictures of our monthly Barkbox and that I really have nothing to say that requires a separate dog blog. 

Don’t worry, I bought the URL just in case. You never know when I’ll get a wild hair. 

So anyway, I’ve been really into making homemade stuff for the dogs recently. I got super inspired when I realized our H-E-B has a bulk bins section of treats. With strawberry biscotti. 

Yeah. For dogs. 

I whipped these Pumpkin Apple Dog Treats up yesterday for the girls and about the time I pulled them out of the oven, my husband was all “What are those? They smell good. Seriously though, what are they? For the dogs? Seriously?”

He came very close to trying one. 

Both dogs gave them rave reviews which is saying something because Clem is weirdly picky about treats.
