Who wants some pi?

Do any of you friends of ours celebrate Pi Day? You know, as in ℼ, the ridiculously long mathematical constant (3.14159269359...) that is typically shortened to 3.14? Since ℼ equals 3.14, what does that make March 14th, 3/14? Pi Day! And who doesn't like a little pi, that is, pie?!?

Around here, we always make pies for Pi Day. This year it's a chocolate pudding pie, and a pumpkin pie partially infused with chocolate chips. Why, you ask, are there chocolate chips in the pumpkin pie? Because this human's dad, the furbabies' beloved Pawpaw, likes his pumpkin pie with a bit of chocolate. And that's when things like chocolate chips come in handy. But I digress.

In case the photo above wasn't evidence enough, yes, I did get plenty of help preparing the pies.

Does it smell good, Toby?

I'll take that as a yes.

Oh, look, the beggars are starting to line up.

Goodness, no need to make demands, Astrid. The pie will be served shortly. And don't worry, pup, you will surely get a taste.

Happy Pi Day, everybuddy! We hope there's pie in your near future!

Our Tip of the Day:
When it comes to your furbaby's diet, don't forget to consider their age and overall health status. Is your furbaby still a kitten or puppy? Then certainly find them a food that caters to their youthful stage in life. Is your furbaby overweight? Then check with your vet about what weight loss or weight maintenance foods he or she might suggest, and how much to feed. Is your furbaby nearing 6 or 7 years of age, when many dogs and cats are considered senior? If so, ask your vet about the best food options for an aging animal. Of course also consider whether your furbaby has any dental, dermatological, gastrointestinal, bladder, kidney, heart, thyroid, or any other disease process going on in their body. Many companies have foods that aim to help furbabies with any number of ailments live the best lives possible, so don't hestitate to investigate such foods and discuss the options with a veterinarian.


  1. The mom says she'll have a slice of both, please! Happy Pi (Pie) Day!

  2. Goodness, those pies sure look yummy. Astrid looks ready for some. You all have a great day.

  3. Yum that chocolate pie looks GOOD!!!!! Having a hard time wrapping my head around the pumpkin and chocolate one though.......be sure to see our Pi post today, we live with Albert Einstein catchatwithcarenandcody

  4. Yum, those pies look delicious. I love pumpkin pie, but I've never tried it with chocolate chips before. I may just have to do that!

  5. Nice looking pies. I wanted to get a banana cream pie to celebrate Pi day, but the grocery store bakery didn't have any. Great idea to add chocolate chips to the pumpkin pie. I have a recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and they are always a hit. Very cute drawing of Astrid and the pie. Great tip too, I know the food Sammy takes for his hypercalcemia works well.

  6. Pies fur pi day huh? We don't make any pies 'round here, but e don't celebrate pi day anyways. MOL Enjoy your pies. Mommy luvs a good chocolate pie. Big hugs

    Luv ya'

  7. YUM! At first I was going to ask for a slice of chocolate pudding pie but those chips on the pumpkin pie sound fab! Around here, it's always (mud)pie day :)

  8. I love pie, but completely forgot to have some yesterday! My favorite pies are blueberry and pumpkin. I think I will try to find some today. Cheers
