Sunday Selfie

Can you guess who snapped a selfie for today? Huh? Can you?

Pup Astrid, that's who snapped our selfie for the Kitties' Blue Sunday Selfie blog hop!

We're guessing that selfie of Astrid's looks pretty familiar. Astrid has something like two poses she'll strike on a regular basis. I promise all of her pictures are always new and fresh shots, she just always looks the same in just about all of them.

What's more, we have one final update on the malignant sarcoma Astrid had removed by way of a toe amputation. On Friday, Astrid had a date with her doctor, because they wanted to do one final check of the incision. Well, the doctor said it looks great, and Astrid has been given the okay to go back to her usual ways! That means regular walks again, and no more of those quick little trips around the block that give the poor girl cabin fever. Needless to say, we're all quite happy!

Now, all of that being said, it's time for our first doodle in our Ten Days of Tortie series. These doodles were inspired by Mudpie and her mom Melissa, who got us thinking upon recently mentioning that finding goodies starring adorable torties is not all that easy of a task. So, we've decided to give some love to terrific torties by creating ten days of doodles just for them.

The first doodle in our Ten Days of Tortie is for lovely Mudpie herself. I'm sure most of us know that she and her mom are quite well-read, and of course fancy a cup of joe. So, this one's for you, Mudpie!

Ten Days of Tortie: Day 1

Our Tip of the Day:
Another common Thanksgiving food we haven't mentioned yet is stuffing. Is this Thanksgiving staple safe for your furbaby? More than likely, it is best that you simply avoid feeding any of that stuffing to your kitty or pup. Why? Because many stuffings include ingredients such as onion, garlic, plenty of butter, or others that could cause ill side effects. If the stuffing is plain, without any potentially dangerous ingredients, then a small taste might be fine for your furbaby. But, more than likely, that stuffing will contain some ingredients that simply should not be part of your cat or dog's diet.

That is a lovely selfie, Astrid. You do look rather wistful though. I am glad you have a clean bill of health. I think I missed about your toe. Maybe it all happened when we were away on holiday, but I am very glad all went well.
That is an adorable drawing for Mudpie and her mom.

I'm glad she can resume her normal way of life. I've found that dogs love their routine and don't like in altered. Everyone is happy now.

Have a woof woof day. My best to your peeps. ☺

Astrid takes a great selfie. I am happy to read that she is all better now and can have her long walks. I love your first tortie drawing and Penny does too :) Excellent tip, I forgot that stuffing does usually have onion in it. Have a great day!

I am so very happy that Astrid has been given a clean bill! And I bet she is ready for much longer romps. I can imagine what my hairy slobbery sister would be like if she could not have hers!
And I am so looking forward to these 10 days of tortitude!


Astrid that is one lovely selfie and we are so happy with your news. Such a sweet doodle of gorgeous Mudpie!
