All of my childhood me and my siblings begged our parents for a dog. My father acquiesced but my mother was another story.  For years, she had one excuse after another of why we couldn’t have a dog. I’m sure it had to do with her upbringing, as I shared here about Latino dog owners. As a result she didn’t feel any special love or emotion for dogs that is until she came across a little stray on the street on her way home from the store.

To our amazement she walked in our house holding the cutest little puppy ever, which we quickly named Canelita, before she could change her mind about keeping it. Canelita was the best thing that could ever happen to our childhood, we loved her and played with her until one day she was gone. Since that point on, our house became a home for stray dogs. Don’t worry we were only allowed one stray dog at a time.

When my kids got old enough they began asking for a puppy and since my son was having some emotional struggles we decided it was time for a dog. We also wanted to rescue a puppy so we headed to our local shelter. It was hard task to pick from so many adorable little dogs but when we saw her we knew she would be ours. She lay there quietly and shy in the middle of her very energetic siblings.


Well, needless to say, we came back home from the shelter with this precious baby we named–Milly.

Isn’t she beautiful? Milly like most dogs that come from shelters, is a mix breed but we were so thankful to call her our own. I must admit it took me some getting used to, but she quickly warmed all of our hearts, including mine.

Well, we made this dog treat jar for her because her treats usually end up all over the floor of our pantry. You can fill it up with your favorite Purina Dog Chow product! This is a great gift for dog lovers and also for your dog.  I made it in less than 15 minutes and the lovely thing is I didn’t need any special supplies to make it. Your kids can even make them it’s so easy!

DIY Dog Treat Jar


  • Glass jar
  • contact paper


  1. What you’ll need is a glass jar. You can use a recycled jar and just remove the label.  My sister actually found a cute glass jar at the dollar store if you don’t have one to recycle.
  2. You can either freehand draw the paw onto the back of the adhesive contact paper or you can print out a paw from the internet and trace it onto the contact paper. It wasn’t hard to freehand draw it, so that’s what I did.
  3. Once you’ve drawn the paw on the back of the contact paper cut it out, remove the backing on it and place on your jar.
