I created my I like big mutts and I cannot lie DIY dog bowls in partnership with The Clorox Company.
It’s true. I like big mutts and I cannot lie. We are going on six years with Charger as a member of our family and it’s hard to imagine life without him. He came to us as a rescue and many days the whole “who rescued who?” question pops into my head.
Rough day and you can use a sympathetic ear that won’t judge? Check. Feeling a little stressed and need a furry stress ball to massage? We’ve got a willing candidate. Try to get right behind his ears. Throw in a little butt scratch and you’ve got a friend for life.
Not to say that they are free of flaws. Over the years, Charger has blessed us with some very special messes to clean up. Let us not forget the I-ate-crayons-and-threw-up-a-rainbow incident of 2014. There was also the I-dug-the-dirty-diaper-out-of-the-trash incident of 2015. Insert my horrified and disgusted face here. Thank goodness for Clorox!
As much as we rely on our fur babies for unconditional love, they rely on us to keep them safe and healthy, as well as cleaning up whatever messes they make. And sometimes this calls for a little deep cleaning to ward off things like Parvo and other viruses that our cuddly canines are susceptible to.
Across the US, animal hospitals and shelters use disinfecting bleach to keep viruses at bay1, keeping our furry friends healthy and safe. You can sanitize your pet bowls at home using a simple recipe. Wash your pet’s bowls with soap and water, then rinse. Next use 2 tbsp of regular Clorox® Regular Bleach with CLOROMAX™ per one gallon of water. Fill bowls with this solution and let it stand for 2 minutes, then drain and dry your bowls.
I went shopping to make Charger some new dog bowls with a 90’s pop culture twist. I bought these gold stainless steel bowls and these white bowl bases. Then I giggled away as I added some modified song lyrics with vinyl letters I cut out. It only took a few minutes and now I smile every time I watch this guy eat. You can grab the file I created to make this exact look if you like.
Whether you like big mutts or little mutts, you can help out our furry friends in need right now. With all of the recent natural disasters around the US, shelters in certain areas are full. If you can’t adopt an animal, you can still help. Donate top requested supplies like extra bowls, blankets, pet food and cleaning supplies like Clorox® Regular Bleach with CLOROMAX™ to help prevent the spread of viruses like parvovirus, a highly contagious viral disease and is deadly to dogs who aren’t vaccinated2.
