Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today is an extra special sort of day.
It is a day to celebrate, you could say.
Do you know what day it is? Well, do you?
It's the birthday of the great and grand Dr. Seuss!

We decided to create a birthday card for the man of rhymes.
We sat down to scribble our way through a fun sort of time.
We worked hard and then worked harder some more.
Some of us worked so hard that we began to snore.


Though some of us may have been napping,
A birthday card was of course still happening.
We couldn't let Dr. Seuss go without,
Even if some of us could only manage to pout.


Dr. Seuss was a master of painting stories with words,
His rhymes ripe with all shades of life, lessons, and colors.
Some of us wished for Dr. Seuss to have a birthday card just as bright,
Even if the back of eyelids was certain others' only sight.


Happy birthday to you, Dr. Seuss!
No one will ever be able to rhyme quite like you.
We thank you for a certain cat in a hat and Horton and that Who.
Happy birthday to you, Dr. Seuss!

Our Tip of the Day:

Yesterday, as part of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we mentioned the importance of having solid plans for taking your furbaby to a local veterinary clinic in the event that they are exposed to a poisonous substance. Along these same lines, also don't forget about the ASPCA Poison Control Center, which you can call 24/7. The phone number is 888-426-4435. This is an option in perhaps a bit less dire circumstances, when it is more likely that immediate medical attention is not needed. The ASPCA Poison Control Center can help you determine, for example, if the amount of chocolate your dog ate or if the pill of your human medication that your cat swallowed is something that might warrant a rush trip to the vet. Though, they can also potentially recommend treatments or at-home first aid tips in the case of poison exposure. There is the chance that you will be charged a consultation fee, but, should you need professional poison control advice immediately, that number might very well be a good one to call.
