The fall season means a lot of things to me: Halloween, changing foliage colors, and pumpkins! I’m a bit of a pumpkin fanatic. From the patches to the lattes, pumpkins are, in my opinion, the best part of the fall season. In fact, I’ve been known to be so attached to my seasonal pumpkins that I’ve kept one at my door for more than a year (much to the chagrin of my neighbors). I just LOVE pumpkins. So I thought I’d do a quick roundup of my favorite pumpkin-themed swag for me, my home and my pup! –Stephanie
HUMAN – Without fail, I always seem to buy a new scarf with each new fall/winter season. I’m looking to spice things up this year and go for a vibrant punch of color, and I think this pumpkin orange knit cowl will be perfect.
HARVEY – Not so much a literal pumpkin style, but this adorable fall colored bow tie collar has been appropriately dubbed “Pumpkin Plaid” and I think it would look so charming around Mr. Harvey’s neck.
In keeping with the seasonal flavor, I wanted to share some great pumpkin dog treat recipes with you too. Pumpkins are a great source of nutrition for dogs. They are high in fiber, which is great for your dog’s digestive health. They also offer essential fatty acids and antioxidants to help keep your pup’s coat shiny and oils that keep the urinary tract clean. And pumpkins can also help in pet weight-loss by replacing one meal a day with a portion of canned, sugar-free pumpkins.
