Dogs are Family | New Life Journey with Koru Bear
The life journey you take with your dog comes with happy and unhappy moments. It was hard losing SUGAR last March. I felt an overwhelming emptiness. What SUGAR taught me about unconditional love has provided me the strength and courage to move on.
Adopting KORU BEAR was unexpected, but I am so grateful for the opportunity. KORU means “new life.” For the past five months, my new life journey with KORU BEAR has been special and accompanied by having a lot of fun journeys.
Fall is my favorite season of the year. It is the season of change and a wonderful reminder of the circle of life. To celebrate, I took KORU BEAR on special Fall journeys.
5 Fun Fall Things to Do with Your Dog
1. Make A Handmade No-Sew Dog Bandana
A dog wearing a bandana is a trendy pet fashion. To commemorate our Fall journeys, I made KORU BEAR two special dog collar bandanas: DIY No Sew Dog Collar Bandana.
What You Need:
Iron-On Hem Tape
a. Make dog collar bandana pattern using a piece of paper, pen, and a ruler. 1) measure your dog’s collar – collar’s length ( without the buckle) and height of the widest part of the collar (most likely the collar’s buckle). 2) On your paper pattern, draw a rectangle based on the height of the widest part of the collar and collar’s length. Determine the center point of the rectangle. Draw a line when you find your desired length of the bandana. Complete the triangle; add about a fourth or half an inch around the entire pattern (for hemming purposes).
b. Using your pattern, cut two bandanas.
c. Hem each bandana using the iron-on hem tape and an iron (fold the edges about a fourth).
d. Using the iron-on tape and an iron, combine the two bandanas (eliminating the two openings for the dog collar).
e. For a sturdy hold on the dog collar, create a ‘fold’ (about a fourth) on top just below the opening for the dog collar.
2. Weekend Road Trip
Fall is a great time for road trips. KORU BEAR loves car rides and staying at a dog-friendly hotel. Visting a new historical park was one of the highlights of his trip. We shared a special moment when I presented him the dog collar bandana I made especially for our weekend trip.
3. Attend A Running/Walking Event
It’s awesome to have KORU BEAR as my running/walking buddy. Attending a dog-friendly running/walking event is a great fun way to stay fit with your dog. It’s our first 5k event and a pawsome way to start the Fall season.
4. Visit an Apple Orchard and Pumpkin Patch
KORU BEAR had so much fun visiting a dog-friendly apple orchard and pumpkin patch. For this special journey, I made another dog collar bandana using a plaid Fall theme cotton fabric.
KORU BEAR had so much fun, especially at the pumpkin patch. We purchased some pumpkins to decorate for Halloween.
5. Special TREATS from True Chews® Dog Treats
KORU BEAR’s fun fall journeys were accompanied by all natural dog treats from True Chews®.

Koru Bear has come so far since you first adopted him and it’s all thanks to you. He has some big shoes to fill but he seems to be doing a pretty good job of it so far. He has found a wonderful, loving home and he’s a lucky boy.
love his smile… it feels so good to see you together…
our new journey is different , of course, but I love it to sail through life with the little hobbit on my side…
KORU BEAR’s smile is just like Angel SUGAR. It’s so great you decided to adopt him. He deserves the very best! Love seeing your journeys with him. You’ve done great and his happy smiles are proof. Our life journey with our dogs are the best!

Dogs in Virginia are in good luck, as we have no shortage of apple orchards! There are lots of places that families with dogs can explore for free, including fruit orchards. Do you think the bandana is something that kids would be able to make? That’s a good rainy day project.
