It's a cloudy and perfectly gloomy outside these days, but that hasn't gotten Evan down one bit. He gets a front row seat of Squirrel TV!
As cliché as it is to discuss the weather, we're still going to ask you all what Mother Nature has been bringing you these days. So, what's the weather like in your corner of the world? We hope that, no matter what the weather is like, you're happy!
That being said, we now have a bit of an optimistic thought to share with you all today as part of the wonderfully inspiring Sparks blog hop, hosted by Annie of McGuffy's Reader.
We are bringing our Sparks to you today in the form of a quick little doodle.
I always want to make sure I give credit where credit is due, and I must therefore admit that I did not get the idea for this thought or its illustration solely from my own mind. I came across the following graphic on Pinterest:
When I saw that, I decided I loved not only the quote, but also how Snoopy and Charlie Brown so simply yet sweetly represented it. So, that's where I got the idea for our Sparks sentiment, and which also heavily inspired our doodle for today.
Wishing you all much happiness!
Our Tip of the Day:
Yesterday's tip was all about making sure that the contents of your purse or any travel bag is safe for your furbaby, especially in the case that you leave it somewhere they can reach it. Speaking of bags, today we are giving a reminder of the dangers that plastic as well as paper bags can pose. Plastic bags, such as those in which you bring home your groceries, can pose a number of risks. For example, if your kitty or pup plays in plastic bags and gets stuck in one, asphyxiation can occur. The handles on plastic bags can also be dangerous, such as if your furbaby gets tangled or stuck in them. Another issue is of course if your kitty or pup chews on and ingests plastic bag material, as this can lead to issues such as gastrointestinal blockage. Also don't forget the dangers that plastic bags can pose to wildlife, should one find its way to them. As for paper bags, while they may not pose as many or the all of the same risks as plastic bags, they are not completely free of dangers. For example, a furbaby getting stuck in handles or ingesting large sums of such paper can lead to dangerous situations. So, long story short, be cognizant and aware of what types of bags you use and the risks they might pose.
