Woof Woof Wednesday

I asked pup Astrid to pose pretty for the camera. She more or less refused, and so this is what you all get to enjoy today.

Astrid is an independent woman, thank you very much, and she won't be told when or how to pose.

Even though she refused to pose, Astrid and all of us here still wish you a wonderful Wednesday!


Flashback Doodle of the Day

Today, we're sharing yet another 2-year-old flashback doodle that I plan to recreate for next week in my more current drawing style. This flashback is of course an autumnal one, and it of course stars cats, a book, and a cup of hot chocolate.

Tip of the Day

We're still in the midst of our National Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tips. On this topic, yesterday we discussed observing your furbaby and knowing visible signs of illness. In addition to this, if your furbaby has been diagnosed with diabetes, consider monitoring their blood glucose at home. This is of course not always an option, depending on the furbaby and the situation. But, if it is possible, do discuss this with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you learn how to safely check your kitty or pup’s glucose at home, which can be done simply by using a vein in your kitty or pup's ear and the same type of glucometer a human would use. If nothing else, it is of course advisable to take a diabetic furbaby to the vet for regular glucose and/or fructosamine checks, as well as frequent urinalyses, especially in the early stages of their diabetes treatment.

No one puts Astrid in the window!
A mash-up of that famous line from "Dirty Dancing"

Astrid is a cutie even if she won't pose. I like the drawing- cute nod to Harry Potter with the scarf. Great tips too.
