Our amazing challenge hosts always come up with the best of the best, like these:
1. My middle name is _________.
2. _________ surprises.
3. The Super Bowl _________.
4. My favorite sport is _________.
And here's what I came up with this week:
1. My middle name is Marie.
(This middle name is more or less an heirloom in my family. Not only do my mom and sister also have this middle name, but so do my maternal grandmother and aunt, as well as some of my cousins.)
2. I have a love-hate relationship with surprises.
(Like anyone, I love me a good, happy surprise. And, like anyone, I don't like those surprises that throw me for a less than ideal loop. So, I guess surprises and I are in a complicated relationship.)
3. The Super Bowl means I get to watch the Kitten Bowl and Puppy Bowl!
(This is why I love Super Bowl Sunday. Who doesn't love watching kitties and puppies play the cutest games of football on the TV?!? Let's be honest, both me and my furbabies enjoy this immensely.)
4. My favorite sport is furbaby snuggling.
(I've never in my life played a sport competitively, and I don't watch many sports, or any at all, really. But I do love to cuddle me some furbabies. That counts, right?)
And of course today we also have your weekly fix of Eddy! This week, as is usual, Eddy just wasn't in the mood for a photo shoot. While some weeks that means she scampers off, willing to offer nothing but a blurry mess, this week Eddy actually sat still. But, the catch? She refused to look at the camera.
My, what a lovely chin you have, Eddy. Is anybuddy else having some photo aversion today?
Oh, and our art for today is another quote piece. It's a simple one, but it's for a quote that I feel holds much meaning for those of us who know the love that a furry four-legged friend can offer.
A fantastic Friday to all!
***Our Tip of the Day:
Just as we mentioned for the holidays, please be sure to keep your furbabies safe this Super Bowl weekend! The big game can make for some fun events with lots of good food, but that fun and food can be dangerous to our furbabies. If you're throwing a party, consider keeping your furbaby in a separate room of the house from any open doors and heavy foot traffic. Also make sure your pup or kitty doesn't sneak any dangerous treats, such as alcohol, chocolate, or even party mix that might contain potentially dangerous flavorings such as onion or garlic. Even our happy cheers while watching a game can stress out the furry ones in our life, so make sure they have somewhere nice and quiet to retreat if you have the game on. Our fun and games might not be the same fun and games as those of our pups or kitties, so please take this into account on this Super Bowl weekend!
