Festivities and Photobombs

Although the holiday has already passed, Astrid never got to show off her St. Patrick's Day attire. That's in large part my fault, so you can blame me, Astrid!

As I believe I've shared in the past, one way in which Astrid partakes in holiday and other fun festivities is by wearing pretty bows on her collar. She doesn't seem to mind or even notice them, so we've been putting decorative bows on her collar since soon after we rescued her. Way back in one of our winter posts, we showed you a Christmas bow Astrid's beloved gammy (my mom) made for her to wear. This time around, Astrid's gammy made her one for St. Patty's Day. Astrid's been wearing it with pride.

The only problem is that, when trying to show off her pretty bow for a recent photo shoot, Astrid just kept getting photobombed:

No matter what, that feline photobomber just kept popping up:

Are you jealous, Toby? Would you like a pretty bow to wear around your neck?

We hope all of our furiends are having a great week so far!

Our Tip of the Day:
Did you know that shamrocks can have toxic effects on cats and dogs? This supposedly lucky plant can be dangerous if ingested by your furbabies. Although its naturally bitter taste often deters animals from consuming it, still be sure to keep an eye on your furbabies if around shamrocks.


  1. Oh Astrid, that is on gorgeous bow. You are one lucky doggie to have such a pretty bow. You all have a fantastic day.

  2. I love you bow Astrid. It sounds like you have a very nice Gammy. Cute photo bomber too. I didn't know Shamrocks were poisonous to cats. I do have a lot of those, someone gave me one and it keeps multiplying. I have given several away and now I need to warn everyone to keep their cats away. Thank you for the warning.

  3. That's a very pretty bow Astrid. We didn't know that shamrocks can be bad for cats and dogs.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. That is a beautiful bow! We don't like clothes but we'd probably wear a pretty bow .

  5. Green is definitely your color, Astrid!

  6. That is a pretty bow, Astrid.

  7. Mudpie says one of the benefits of being an only fur baby is no photobombers ;)

  8. Astrid, that surely is a nice bow. And we are pretty sure that Toby DOES want to try in on. :)

  9. Well we say that is sure some good green on ya, Astrid!
