Party like it's Friday!

It's time to party like it's Friday! Because, well, it's Friday! Let's start the festivities with the ever fun Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by our friends over at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.

Our hosts always know just the right fill-ins to get our minds going.

1. I have googled _________.
2. I have _________ on Ebay.
3. I think _________.
4. _________ thinks _________.

After some prodding and pleading, my brain finally gave me some ideas to work with. Here they are:

1. I have googled trolls.
(Weird, huh? I've mentioned before my love for animated movies and shows. One of those happens to be Trollhunters, and I recently found myself surfing the web for info on the different types of trolls seen on this show.)

2. I have bought oodles of old books on Ebay.
(I love to read, and I have a great fondness for the genre of fantasy. The thing is, though, that I most often prefer fantasies written by the old timers, fantasies that are often a bit obscure and hard to find. My dad, from whom I acquired my love for fantasy, will often give me book suggestions that require me to go on Ebay hunts.)

3. I think four-legged furballs are the best medicine.
(When I'm feeling blue, nothing lifts my spirits like a good ol' dose of my furbabies.)

4. "He is able who thinks he is able."
(I try to live with this mindset. Sometimes you just have to believe in yourself.)

Okay, now it's Eddy's turn to show you all what she's been up to this week. Last week she showed you how she uses this here human mom's headboard to fine-tune her mountain climbing skills. She's been doing more mountain climbing this week, but instead of focusing on her groovy moves like last time around, she's been enjoying the view.

Nothing like a good ol' view from the top.

So what if it's rude to spy on the neighbors?

Have any of our furiends been taking in some lovely views? We sure hope so!

Happy Friday, everybuddy!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:
Yesterday we talked about how those pesky mosquitoes carry heartworm, and how it's important to take that into account for your furbaby's preventive care. We'll continue our talk on heartworm prevention today, but in a more natural way. Did you know that there are herbs and plants that are not only safe for your furbaby, but that can also help deter mosquitoes? One of these just so happens to be catnip! That's not all, though. Others that might help repel mosquitoes, and that are also safe for your furbaby, include basil, rosemary, and garden marigolds. A number of other plants and herbs are also said to have natural mosquito repellent abilities, but some of these are toxic to our furbabies, so always proceed with caution. That being said, when it comes to herbs and plants that are safe mosquito repellents, you can try planting or stationing some throughout your yard, especially in areas that you or your furbabies frequent, as well as by entrances to the house. Though this method is of course not fail-safe, it never hurts to take all precautions possible to keep your furbaby happy and healthy.

Eddy, looks like you have a good view there. We love to look out the windows. There is always something going on outside. You all have a wonderful day.

Eddy is adorable and not even blurry this week. I love the last photo the best, she looks miffed that you told her not to spy on the neighbors :) Cute drawing, I can't wait for some fresh watermelon. And excellent answers to the fill-ins, as always. Have you ever looked for books on alibris? They have a lot of out of print ones. I am with you on #3 and 4. I have been seeing a lot of troll merchandise so I figured it went to a movie. Have a nice weekend!

Pets do make a great medicine. Have a great weekend.

You mean we aren't supposed to spy on the neighbors?!

Our grand-furbaby has heartworms already. :( She is a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix. As many times as I've been mosquito buffet central, I'm surprised that I don't have them, too. Are the plants that you mentioned safe for both cats and dogs, or just cats? Are they dangerous to birds and squirrels?

Thanks for always having such interesting, helpful tips and such adorable Eddy pics for us to enjoy. Have a blessed weekend!

Great fill-ins! I especially loved your one for #4!

Well done, Eddy. It looks like you stayed still just long enough for Mom to get some terrific photos of you. :)
