Woof Woof Wednesday

Today is our Woof Woof Wednesday post, which of course means pup Astrid is here to show you herself pouting in the window. What's new.

Have wonderful Wednesday, friends!

Doodle of the Day

Today we have for you one of our new spring doodles for the month of March. These new doodles have been few and far between as I focus on the nearly daily doodles for the April A to Z Challenge, but today we are finally sharing a new doodle in our spring series. This one was inspired by spring drawings of years past, but with some new twists and details.

The illustration for tomorrow's poem will also be one of our new spring doodles, which is interesting considering it involves a bit of snow.

Tip of the Day

Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is about the toxic gas known as carbon monoxide (CO). CO is not only dangerous to us humans, but also incredibly dangerous to our kitties, pups, and other animals. CO most often results from car exhaust, fire/smoke, and when generator systems fail. When a large amount of CO is inhaled, this can lead to cells in the body becoming deprived of oxygen. CO poisoning can thereby result in life-threatening effects on the cardiovascular system, neurological system, and other important systems of the body.

Needless to say, do all that you can to prevent both your furbaby's and your own exposure to CO. Set up CO monitors in your home, and ensure that they are always properly functioning. Of course also ensure that you have functioning fire and smoke alarms. There are all-in-one alarms on the market that detect fire, smoke, and CO. In addition to this, properly maintain any generators that you have, and do not use them if they are in any way malfunctioning. Also, of course, do not let your kitty or pup into a closed, unventilated garage where a car or other motor vehicle is running. CO can be a silent killer, so do all that you can to protect your furbaby, as well as yourself, from it and its deadly effects.

I can hear Astrid's sigh every time we see her pouting on the window ledge!
