Caturday Art: Teacup Pup

Resident pup Astrid gets to be the star of our contribution for this week's Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by lovely Athena.

Astrid weighs in at 65 lbs and, putting it simply, is larger than life. Perhaps that's why I thought it would be fun to do a goofy little drawing that sized her down to a teacup pup. Don't ask me why. Some days, these sorts of thing just pop into my head (it's a strange place up there). Anyway, fast forward, and I ended up with this:


So, there you have it. Astrid the teacup pup. You may want to ask for this one in decaf.

Happy Caturday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Many of us humans love our tea and coffee and other caffeinated goods, often for their energizing effects. The reason we love our caffeinated goods, though, is also why they're so dangerous to our furbabies. Dogs and cats are more sensitive to caffeine and its effects. While a couple licks of tea or coffee will likely not do any severe damage, consuming large quantities of tea, tea bags, coffee, or coffee grounds can be potentially detrimental or even life-threatening to our furbabies. And don't forget other potential sources of caffeine, such as chocolate, energy drinks, and diet pills. If your furbaby has ingested caffeinated goods, and if you are observing hyperactivity, restlessness, vomiting, elevated respiration or heart rate, or any other concerning signs, consult a veterinarian immediately.

  1. Awwww....Astrid looks adorable as a teacup pup. I think she would need one of the teacups like rides at amusement parks though :) Great tip about caffeine. The only cats I have that likes coffee is Joanie, I let her have a lick or 2 off my finger, but that is not much at all. Have a great weekend.

  4. You are endlessly creative!!! Congrats Astrid, you made it into the teacup! I somehow think you could win an award with that picture, esp the clever title TeaCup Pup. But won't your kitties be jealous? We always wanted to be teacup kitties but our human won't let us into her cups! How unfair is that?
