A neighbor was looking at my Spenda boxes and suggested that I use dogs for the handles. So I decided to try one. This is a plastic German Shepard puppy from Michael’s craft store. I used Gorilla Wood Glue to glue the dog to the lid. The wood on this project is pallet wood I am still working through. I believe the body is poplar, which I stained with a light brown stain. It will be interesting to discover how people react to the puppy.

Wonderful boxes you are making for those sugar packets.

Ha ha ha, when I saw “Splenda Box for Dog Lovers” I was thinking it was what you used to sweeten your hotdogs…that’s a pretty cool handle for a nice box.

I like your box and the dog handle. It just looks right and makes me wonder why I have never thought of it before.
