V is for...

We are getting close to wrapping up the A to Z Challenge. That makes me a bit sad. This has been my first year participating, and I've been having a blast.

But, the challenge isn't over just yet. We're only at the letter V, after all. V, another letter that doesn't have a whole lot to offer in terms of critters. There are things like vultures, though, and aren't those just adorable? No? Well, that's probably why I didn't draw one.

That is supposed to be a vole. I realized after finishing it, though, that it sort of looks more like a miniature bear than a rodent. Nevertheless, today V is for Vole!

Oh, and Astrid wanted her usual Wednesday shot today. Of course, she went for the pouty puppy pose again.

Happy Wednesday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Could your pup or kitty benefit from having their teeth brushed, but they won't allow you to? Try wiping a bit of pet-safe toothpaste on their favorite toy. For example, put some toothpaste on your pup's favorite chew bone or ball. This may not be quite as easy with kitties, but it is not impossible, especially if you know of a toy that your kitty enjoys chewing on or carrying around. Fresh breath is possible!


  1. We think that is such a cute Vole. I like that drawing. And Astrid, you are looking good this morning. You all have a great Wednesday.

  2. Something has your eye out there, Astrid. Could it be a vole? ;)

  3. That is a cute vole, much cuter than the one that scared me in the garden last summer. They are so small yet they scare me. Nice shot of Astrid and excellent tip, as always.

  4. Now that's just the cutest little vole! Astrid, you're a beauty!

  5. Have you tried the toothpaste on a toy with any of your gang? How did it work? Glad everybody's teeth looked good on our round-up. Your vole does look like a miniature bear, but that's okay. It is darn cute, and that is what counts! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
