We crafters love our pets and in honor of our theme “We <3 Pets”, we’ll be showcasing a few of our favorite crafters and their furry pals. To kick off our fun Q&A series, today we feature Wilfredo, the adorable Chihuahua mix owned by artist and Rare Device co-owner, Lisa Congdon.
Name of Pet: Wilfredo
Pet Type: Dog, Chihuahua mix
Favorite activity: Fetch
Favorite food: Cucumber slices
What does your pet do when you are crafting? Attempts to get me to play fetch
Best thing about your pet: He never ever stops being cute and lovable.
If your pet could talk, what do you think he/she would say? While I’m eating: “Can I have some of that?”
Can you share a pet tip you’ve learned since having your pet?
Brush his/her teeth every night to avoid gum disease! There are folks out there who do non-anesthetic teeth cleaning to get you on the right track before you start the nightly ritual. Make brushing a fun activity by singing to your dog while you do it, and giving him a treat when you are finished. (Its fine for dogs to eat right after brushing!)
