Valentines Gifts for Your Furry Loves

It is February and we think that someone special in your life deserves something made with love. So we decided to show you how to make your pets some special Valentines gifts to show them how much we love them! First is a super simple NO-SEW heart plush toy and second is a healthy and delicious frozen treat!

N0-Sew Plush Toy

Here is what you will need:vdaypillow
  • ½ a yard of fleece material (we got ½ yard of red and ½ yard of pink to make different colors)
  • A ruler
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie or material marker
  • Stuffing
  • Organic catnip (if you are making for cats







STEP 1 – Cut Material

Cut the material into pieces 19 ½ inches in height (how it comes off roll) and 8 ½ inches wide.

STEP 2 – Fold and Cut

You should have a rectangle piece of material.  Fold the rectangle in half horizontally, and cut in between the folded crease to create 2 squares that are the same size. Squares should be on top of each other they will stay like this.

STEP 3 – Draw Heart and Cut Strips

With your sharpie or material marker, draw a heart onto the square of material you just made. Using a stencil to draw the heart and a ruler to center it will make for a more uniform shape. Our pets are not that particular so for simplicity sake we free-handed the heart. After drawing the heart, cut the material into strips around the heart, try not to cut into the heart.

STEP 4 – Tie Strips

Start to tie the matching top and bottom strips into knots, continue doing this until you have about 3 pairs of strips left to tie.

S4Once almost all your ties are tied, you can stuff your toy with the stuffing, or stuffing and catnip for cats. You will put the stuffing into the toy through the untied ties. Once your toy is stuffed to your preference, finish tying the remaining ties.S4b


Once you have finished tying all the ties, you will have a new dog or cat toy!

PROJECT 2 – Strawberry Raw Yogurt Pops

While you enjoy your chocolate covered strawberries, share some love for your four legged furry family member by making them a Frozen Strawberry Raw Yogurt Pop. P2S6

Here is what you’ll need:
  • 1 Banana
  • 8 strawberries
  • 1 – 4oz Steve’s Real Food Goat Milk Yogurt
  • 1 blender
  • 1 heart shaped silicone baking sheet
STEP 1 – Prep IngredientsP2S1

Make sure you wash your strawberries and remove the leaves, peel the banana, and make sure the goat yogurt is defrosted. If you forgot to defrost the yogurt simply leave it on your counter for about 30 min and then cut the top of the pouch off. You should be able to squeeze the partially defrosted yogurt out. Once that is all done put all the ingredients into your blender. Blend until smooth.

P2S2Place the silicone baking sheet on a metal backing sheet. This will make it easier to transport to your freezer. Pour the mixture into the heart shaped silicone baking sheet. Do not fuss about drips outside of the heart. You can use the back of a knife to scrape in into other hearts or off the sheet. Put the baking sheet in the freezer overnight.


We let Duckie and Harley eat what was left over!

P2S3 P2S4

Once the hearts are completely frozen remove from the freezer and “pop” out the hearts. This recipe makes a lot of hearts, we recommend sharing the love and giving them to friends and families who have their own furry family members. P2S5

  • My dogs LOVE their new food!! I used to feed them dry kibble and they would leave their food in the bowls for 2 days before they would eat. Now they wake me up in the morning ready to eat. They also have so much more energy, they act like they are puppies again. The customer service is awesome! Too bad all companies don't have this kind of service. I will continue to buy Steve's Real Food for my dogs.

  • CONVENIENT, RELIABLE, DOGS LOVE THE FOOD I switched my dogs to a raw diet about 2 months ago. My older dog was panting a lot and he had a potato sized growth on his shoulder. The growth is now the size of an egg and his excessive panting has stopped. My younger dog was overweight despite the fact that she was very active and on a strict low calorie diet. She has slimmed down quite a bit.

  • We were skeptical of feeding raw. Finally we decided to take the plunge. The first surprise was, my dogs loved it. And the goat milk yogurt is a complete hit! They all love it. We had one small issue with the shipping and after one email everything was taken care of. But now that it's been several months we have noticed many other things. None of my dogs chew on their feet anymore. None of my dogs have itchy flaky skin anymore. And they are all pretty and shiny with tons of energy.

  • My dog was a picky eater and overweight. After 4 months of eating this raw diet he is almost at his recommended weight. I no longer have to coax him to eat by doctoring up his kibble. He eats the food as is and empties his bowl right away.

  • I wanted to give a shout out to Tara at the corporate office. She really went above and beyond! I had several questions about switching my dog over to raw food and the transition that's involved. She met with me in person and took the time to listen and gave me some great suggestions/feedback to my questions. She shared what her own dog went through and how raw dog food helped. Tara made me feel comfortable and was so kind and thoughtful to take the time out of her busy day to be so helpful. My dog is LOVING the food and has been transitioning very smoothly. Thanks so much for being so awesome, Tara. It meant a lot to me and because of the experience I had and the kindness you showed to me, I will continue to be a grateful customer and will recommend Steve's to all my fellow dog moms and dads.
