Views and Vanity


Today's A to Z Challenge letter is V. Going along with our theme, the classic story we decided to work with is Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. As per usual, we put a twist on this, and that led us here:

We are wishing all of you friends of ours a wonderful Wednesday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today's Spring safety tip is another one we've very recently mentioned, but that we'll repeat again. It is to always be aware and cautious of the potential dangers of various fertilizers, pesticides, and other such chemicals that are often used this time of the year. If you plan to use any such products, do your research and try to avoid using potentially toxic variations. No matter what kind you use, though, to be safe, keep any such products stashed safely away from your furbaby's reach.

But, this tip also goes beyond what you might be using in your own personal environment. For pups or kitties who go outdoors, you should take into consideration that unfamiliar yards, parks, and other such areas may use products that could have toxic effects if walked through, ingested, and so forth. When out and about with your furbaby, or even just yourself, try to avoid areas where you know or think any unsafe chemicals are used. When you arrive back at home after a walk or other excursion, wipe off paws and shoes, so that you can do your best to remove any traces of fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals. There is no such thing as being too careful when it comes to the health and safety of our furbabies, so do all that you can to keep your furbaby protected from potentially dangerous chemicals this time of year, and all year round.

Astrid, you look extra pretty with your bow. Vanity Hare is adorable, very creative. And excellent tip, so many do use harsh chemicals on their lawns.

A beautiful photo! Your tip of the day is perfectly timed. Spring's finally found us (some would say early summer for today only at 86 degrees already!), and we see neighbors out mowing lawns and spreading fertilizer everywhere!
