Woof Woof Wednesday

Pup Astrid is going to tattle and tell you all that this here human still has Christmas decor up in the house. What's more, Astrid is still touting her Christmas ribbon around town.

Can you believe that? Astrid wonders if she'll be wearing her Christmas ribbon until Easter. Astrid is glad that she's pretty darn cute, even if her ribbon is out of season.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today's winter tip is one that is probably rather logical, and it's therefore one that you all very likely already know. This tip is to refrain from shaving your kitty or pup in the winter, especially a shave close to the skin. The truth is, it is always best to refrain from cutting your furbaby's fur to the skin. In the winter, one obvious reason their fur is crucial is because it helps insulate heat. Similarly, though, a cat or dog's fur can insulate cool air when it's hot outside, making it equally important in the summer. Of course, in the case of severe mats, thick fur that causes overheating in the summer, or other extenuating circumstances, a shave might be required or beneficial. That being said, though, it is usually best and safest for your furbaby to never shave their fur down to the skin. That fur serves far more purposes than one, including insulating both warm and cool air, depending on the time of the year.

Astrid, it is plaid, plaid can be worn anytime! And truth be told, Cinnamon LOVES her Christmas collar and she says she is going to wear it until it wears out! Have a Marvellously Happy Day!

Astrid is beautiful, and the season can go on a bit longer. After all, you are supposed to leave your creche up until Candlemas (Feb. 2, Feast of the Presentation).
