This has been our first round participating in one of the poetical challenges. Though this human is the farthest thing from a poet, we've been enjoying it all the way since the letter A, and we plan to continue with it. That being said, this time around, we're already at the letter V. That means we have a V of a someone for you all to meet.
Viola the Veterinarian
Kitties or puppies,
Cubs or duckies,
Viola the Veterinarian can care for them all.
Whether they're big or whether they're small,
Viola's patients know that she is the one to call.
Do you know a kitty with a tummy ache?
Or a puppy with a bump or a break?
A proper diagnosis is what Viola will make,
Even if the patient is a pig or a snake.
Viola the Veterinarian can bandage a wound,
And her patients always heal sooner than soon.
She can mend a sore tooth,
Whether the patient is aged or bubbling with youth.
Furry or tailed,
Feathered or scaled,
Viola the Veterinarian offers the best care around.
She keeps her patients safe and sound.
As always, we were inspired by a real-life Viola. To visit her, just click there on her name! And, of course, we didn't forget to do a little doodle of Viola the Veterinarian.
As always, we're now moving on to Thimble on this Thursday.
Always the model, Thimble recently gave this here mom of hers a little extra help during some photo shoots. It all started when someone challenged this here human to do a black and white photo challenge on Facebook. This challenge instructs its participants to take black and white photos of things that represent their life. Here's the kicker, though. No photos of pets, nor those of people, are not allowed. Since roughly 99.9% of this human's photos involve something cute and furry, this was the challenge of all challenges.
While I managed to complete the challenge by following the rules, it wasn't easy. Especially with certain helpers...
You might remember seeing a color version of a photo similar to this one.
This started out as a setup for a shot of some of our Halloween decorations. It ended up as a Thimble photo shoot.
In case you can't tell, this is Thimble going all
Thanks for the help, Thimble!
Of course, we didn't forget about Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
Thimble would like to express how thankful she is for her model skills. We are all also so very thankful for all of the blessings in our lives. We are thankful that Halloween was fun and festive, that Thanksgiving will be a time for family, and that wonderful Christmas is on the horizon. And, of course, we are thankful for friends like all of you.
Wishing you all a beautiful Thursday!
Our Tip of the Day:
In addition to the others we've mentioned, another food you might find on the Thanksgiving table is ham. Is this safe to feed your furbaby, though? Ham, like turkey potentially can be, is often high in fat. Ham is also often processed or treated, and can possibly contain high amounts of salt. These factors can lead to any number of issues, such as gastrointestinal distress or pancreatitis, if consumed in excess by your kitty or pup. And, just as we've said of other Thanksgiving foods, also be aware of other potentially concerning ingredients added to ham, such as onion and garlic. While very small amounts might not have effect for some furbabies, do be aware of the potential side effects that fatty, processed, treated, or seasoned ham can cause.
