Wistful Wednesday


Can you guess what Astrid is so wistful about today?

Our Tip of the Day:

Our last Christmas tree tip relates to real trees and how they might affect your furbaby. If you have a real tree, be cautious of letting your kitty or pup drink from any accessible water in the tree stand. It is possible that certain chemicals, such as fertilizers or even pesticides, are used in some tree lots. Some of these chemicals can then end up in the water that the tree is resting in, and this can potentially lead to toxic side effects for your furbaby. Another concern relates to stagnant water in the tree stand, which can harbor potentially harmful bacteria. In addition, be careful of pine needles falling from real trees, and even artificial trees, for that matter. These needles are pointy and sharp, and if consumed this can potentially lead to internal damage. So, keep that tree water covered or somehow out of reach, and keep those fallen pine needles cleaned up, so that your furbaby and the Christmas tree can live in harmony.

She's ready for a walk. She's waiting for someone to tell her let's go.

Have a woof woof day, Astrid. My best to your mom. ♥

Outside is where she wants to be, but the cold holds her back.

Nice to see Astrid. Very cute drawing and excellent tips. I prefer artificial and one of the main reasons is chemicals sprayed on real ones.

Do you smell snow in the air Astrid?

Um, is there maybe snow headed your way, Astrid?

This looks like a play in the snow 'look'.

Sure looks like she wants to be outside. Bet she saw a squirrel too. You all have a great day.
