Our Doodle of the Day:
This doodle here gets a bit of an explanation. It is a lot like some drawings we've shared in the past, but this one was created specifically for a little boy in need of some encouragement. One of my cousins is married to the sister of a war veteran, and one of his sons has had a number of health issues since birth. Most recently, he has been put in a full-leg cast, and he is devastated. One of the things that brings him joy is getting mail, so I am one of many people who has been sending him little cards like this one here. Oh, and this pup is based off of the service dog the little boy's dad has to help him cope with PTSD. They're a family full of heroes, if you ask me.
I also made another doodle of the little boy himself. I'll share that here as well.
Our Tip of the Day:To continue on with our tips for keeping allergens out of the home, don't forget that both us and our furbabies make great vehicles for allergens to travel wherever they please. When we go outside, we're walking through all sorts of pollen, dust, and other such goodies. So, to keep those allergies or asthma in check this autumn, or throughout the entire year, consider how freshening up after time outdoors might help minimize the entrance of allergens into the home. Wipe or take off shoes upon entering the home, and even perhaps change into different clothes, especially if you've been outdoors for a long period of time or have been doing activities such as gardening. Even our hair can be ridden with allergens after being outdoors, so a quick clean of that might be in store if your furbaby or yourself is known to have allergies or asthma. Of course, don't forget that furbabies who go outdoors might also be afflicted by allergens in the same way. So, upon returning home, even consider wiping down furbaby fur and feet to help rid them of any pesky allergens.
