Are you looking to pay homage to your dog, but don’t want to go the painted portrait route? Why not get a custom mosaic by Martin Brown?
Each piece is made up of of thousands of pieces of hand cut glass mosaic that are assembled to produce an exquisite representation of your pet. Based in Barcelona, Martin works with US and non-US customers alike, working from a selection of photos or specific photo of your dog. He will work with you to select the best photo and can even retouch or alter the photos to bring out the best form, color or shape before he begins the mosaic. The commissioned works are about 28″ x 24″ in order to get the best detail possible, and take about four weeks to complete.
I don’t have a lawn (yet) but if I did I would definitely need something like this Dog Spot Eliminator. Every time I take Beans outside our apartment, he goes in the same spot and there are yellow or brown patches of dead grass, called burns.
The Dog Spot Eliminator doesn’t work right away, it takes about 6 to 7 days to see results. It neutralizes the nitrogen and naturally supplies nutrients back into the grass to help it grow back greener and stronger. You can pre-treat, spot treat, or use it as a lawn fertilizer if there isn’t a specific spot that your pet likes to go. According to Scott DeWaide, president of The Organic Farm Store, it will cut down on future burning by about 60-70% and his customers love it. Plus, it’s completely organic, it’s safe for both your kids and pets.
In addition to a product like this, you can also use a hose to water down the area immediately after your pet urinates in order to flush and dilute the urine.
Have you ever used this product? Do you have any other tips to share for preventing or treating doggie lawn spots?
If your dog is curious to know what’s on the other side of the fence, try installing a Pet Peek! That way your dog (and you) can check out if the grass is really greener on the other side. You can get one for $25 at Opulent Items.
