Pets are like family. There is no better feeling than to come home from work and be greeted by man's best friend. Our fur babies are there through the good and the bad and provide comfort and snuggles any time we need it. So today we want to focus on the special animals in your life.
At Plaid we are big pet people and we know you are too! Which is why we have compiled a variety of crafts that are fun yet practical for your pet.
If you are looking for more pet crafts beyond what we discuss in today's blog, make sure to check out our entire pet section
