P is for...

We're at the letter P in the A to Z Challenge. My sister likes a certain flubbery bird that begins with P, so this one's for her.


Luckily, unlike that there penguin, we have no snow here. Hooray! We're all shades of green here, with lots of springtime window whiffies.


Wishing you all lots of Wednesday window whiffies!

Our Tip of the Day:
Did you know that those fun, fuzzy, green, round things known as tennis balls can actually be detrimental to your pup's teeth? It is possible for the coarse fuzz found on the exterior of tennis balls to wear at the teeth, which could potentially grind them down, which is not very beneficial for those chompers. If and when possible, stick with balls and chew toys specifically designed for pets, such as those made of sturdy and safe rubber. You can even make fun and healthy chew toys out of raw vegetables, such as carrots. Of course, this tip goes for all types of toys, and for all species. Always be aware of what your pup, kitty, or other companion critter is using as a toy, and consider whether it is truly safe. When in doubt, always stick to toys designed specifically for our companion animals.

  5. Very cute penguin. My niece collects penguin things :) Sweet photo of Astrid enjoying those window whiffs.I had no idea that tennis balls could damage teeth. I only use them in the dryer when I have a blanket or comforter in there.

  10. Doing some catch-up here! Cute art. I don't like cat toys; I prefer human toys but I don't usually put them in my mouth or eat them.
