(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Window Watcher

Despite posting a more varied selection of shots of pup Astrid lately, that doesn't mean she's given up her favorite pose of all. Remember the pouty window puppy?


Sometimes, there are even fun things to watch while pouting out the window. Like this:


Mmmm. Who needs nuts when you have a perfectly good mushroom to chow down on?

Our Tip of the Day:
Autumn and Spring are two mushroom-heavy seasons. That being said, please keep in mind that some mushrooms are dangerous for our furbabies to consume. The truth is that only a small portion of mushrooms are toxic to cats and dogs, but that small percentage of toxic mushrooms can have life-threatening consequences if ingested. What's more, it's often difficult to distinguish between the dangerous mushrooms and the harmless ones. So, if possible, simply avoid locations with a high population of mushrooms. If you do find yourself in a mushroom-heavy area, though, please closely monitor your furbaby. Since it is so difficult to distinguish between types of mushroom, it is likely best to simply keep your pup or kitty from consuming any.

  4. Astrid is so calm, my niece's Jack Russell goes crazy all day long barking at squirrels. I had no idea they would eat mushrooms. Excellent tip. I assume all are dangerous unless they are bought at the store.

  9. Wild mushrooms are mostly toxic to humans unless you're into hallucinogens. I have a question. Why do most dogs have "birthmarks" on their cheeks?
