Not So Wordless Wacky Whale Wednesday

Going to the pet store is one of this human's favorite things. One reason is that our local pet store has the most adorable cookies for pups. I always ogle all of the cute little designs, and of course always bring at least one home for a certain pup named Astrid. This time around, she got herself a pink little whale.

I think I was just as excited as she was.

Don't be fooled by that seemingly friendly, innocent face. Astrid had no regrets gobbling that whale right on down.

Wishing everybuddy a whale of a Wednesday!

Our Doodle of the Day:

All in good fun, Astrid! (Even if this quote does scream your name sometimes.)

Did we ever tell you furiends of ours how, if we're to be honest, we consider ourselves as having two Astrids? We have Astrid, the sweet and smart and comical pup who can light up any room with her gigantic, sunny smile. And then we have what we call "Other Astrid". "Other Astrid" made far more appearances back in the days of puppyhood, but she still surfaces sometimes. "Other Astrid" is the turbo version of Astrid, the version who will suddenly, out of nowhere, go wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, and then go on a lightning-fast run throughout the house, bowling over anyone and anything that gets in her way. "Other Astrid" is essentially a 70-lb hurricane who registers as roughly an 8.3 on the Richter scale. But we love both our Astrid and our "Other Astrid".

I guess today's doodle is in honor of "Other Astrid".

Our Tip of the Day:
Did you know that, in some cases, hyperactivity in dogs and cats can be a result of their diet? For example, some types of dog or cat food are indeed higher in sugars, and these are indeed known to potentially cause hyperactivity in both animals and humans. But did you know that even too much protein can cause hyperactivity in dogs and sometimes cats? Foods formulated for young puppies and kittens often contain higher amounts of protein, since these help growing bodies form necessities such as muscles. As an animal ages, though, too much protein can lead to less than ideal side effects, hyperactivity being one of them. This being said, always research the ingredients in your furbaby's food to ensure they are eating a diet suitable for their age, size, and overall health status. Most importantly, though, discuss all questions regarding your cat or dog's diet with your veterinarian, so that you can ensure you are finding foods adequately beneficial to your furbaby.

That looks good enough to eat :) Our local pet store has similar cookies and the clerk said they are fine for humans, they just lack sugar so they wouldn't be very tasty. Astrid is a cutie, I am sure "Other Astris" is a lot of fun. Very cute drawing. And excellent tip, I did not know that.

Too cute! Whenever I pick up an adorably decorated human cookie I always have a hard time eating it. I'm sure Astrid doesn't have that trouble ;)

Pop once ate a dog cookie and he said this one looks good. I didn't know that about too much protein. My new food is 93% protein but it's only a snack.

We bet that cute cookie was tasty, Astrid! We love that there is the "other Astrid." Hey, sometimes a girl's gotta let loose. :)
