Pet Album

Written and Created by PaperCraftCentral Susan

Make a mini pet album of your new puppy or kitten. They are so cute when little! You might forget just how little and adorable they were without keeping some memories and journalling about their early days, right?

Puppy and Me

A new puppy or kitten can be a great excuse to take lots of photos and make a tiny pet-album, especially when they are as cute as our new puppy was.

My own new puppy was so tiny, he only weighed 550gm (about a pound!) at this stage of his little life, and he did grow up to be only the size of a small cat!

He was  cute even when grown but there is something vulnerable and infinitely sweet about a baby puppy to me.

Well, they are sweet when they aren't teething on your finger! Lol!

How to Make a Pet Album

I made a mini scrapbook of my new puppy's photos.

As soon as I get some photos printed, I made a mini paper bag book of him and journalled about his cute little antics.

There are quite a few stories I remembered to write down, like his first meeting with my old cat (he hissed) and my old dog (she was not impressed) and how their relationships have become more friendly over the few weeks the puppy has been here.

I told about how my husband melts and laughs when the puppy gets up to some mischief, and how our friends have reacted when meeting him.

I can even tell about how my Vet looked at me askance when I told him the puppy's parents were smaller than cats! My Vet has a hard time taking my new little doggie seriously! Lol! That's OK. I got the puppy for me, not for my wonderful Vet :) T

he puppy's size sure makes him cheap to feed anyway, and that ought to count for something in the Vet world.Hey! There's another memory I can journal about.

It's worth it to me to keep a small diary of things that made us laugh or cry when our puppy was young. Having the dates these things happened also helped me match up the photos with the stories I had.

Just like human babies, puppies have 'firsts' that could be scrapped about, such as:

  • The first day home
  • First time meeting the other pets
  • First time meeting the children/husband/brother/family
  • Favourite toy/food/bedding
  • First time he discovered he could bark
  • First puppy school class, and graduation day
  • First Vet visit and why he went there
  • How you felt when you brought your dog home
  • How your pet makes you laugh or cry
  • Funny moments when you caught them doing something unexpected

My pets seem to make me laugh every day, On those rare occasions when I get a good photo of them, it is worthwhile ot scrap about them to me Their lives are so short and sweet, it's nice to look back on them and remember...

If you don't get a puppy but did get a kitten or a bird or guinea pig, you can adapt these ideas to their lives. Every pet has a first day at home, first time meeting the family, favourite things, first Vet visit etc. Talfills that pet-shaped space in your life.k about their breed, why you got your pet, and how s/he fills that pet-shaped space in your life.

Keep memorabilia too about your pet, if it will fit in your album. Maybe the first Vet bill was a doozy, and you want to remember how much it was! Or maybe you can clip logos from packaging from their favourite treats or snacks to scrap about.

I should have smiled in this photo shown below, but doesn't my pup look iniicent and cute? Lol!

Puppy Scrapbook

Maybe you will be inspired to make a little pet album of your own now, if you have a new pet in the household. If you do, I would love to see a portrait of your pet. Do let me see? And tell me about a story you will always remember about your pet too :)
