Woof Woof Wednesday

How about a good ol' closeup shot of pouty pup Astrid's nose?

We shared with you a couple months ago how Astrid took a chunk out of her nose when trying to toss around her food bowl, because she seems to really enjoy doing that. Her nose has to yet fully regain that little chunk of missing nose. Can you tell in this photo? You probably can. It's pretty darn obvious. At least Astrid doesn't seem to care. Poor pup.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


Freaky Flashback Doodle of the Day

Part of me thinks I might have already shared the following flashback doodle this summer, but part of me also isn't sure that I actually did. Either way, I really want to share it again leading up to the new sort of spooky series I'm working on, so here it is.

I remember feeling really inspired to create this drawing back in the summer of 2019, after seeing a certain piece of Halloween decor at a store. That piece of decor looked a lot like the typewriter in the doodle, all the way down to the bony little hand. And so, I scribbled it up in my sketchbook.

Tip of the Day

Today is the last tip in our series on decorating your house around your furbabies. What we're talking about today is flooring. When purchasing, designing, or renovating a home, be sure to take your furbabies into consideration when it comes to details such as flooring. For example, carpeting might require extra cleaning efforts if you live with furbabies prone to vomiting or other accidents on the floor. A better option in such a case might be a hard surface flooring. Some of the easiest floors to clean and maintain with furbabies include tile and laminate floors. Of course, hardwood is another option. When it comes to this, though, do try to ensure that the type of wood used on your floors is indeed hardwood. For example, oak, maple, walnut, and cherry are all hardwoods that are resilient, as well as able to be refinished relatively easily. On the other hand, try to avoid softwood flooring when living with furbabies, whose paws and claws can far more easily cause damage to less resilient woods. Softwoods include pine, cedar, and redwood, all of which might not be able to hold up against the pitter-patter of clawed furbaby paws. All in all, if you are blessed enough to share your life and home with furbabies, you may indeed need to consider how to best decorate your home to suit both you and your furbaby.

Poor Astrid, she is still a cutie though. I love the doodle and the tips are excellent.

Astrid, i hope you have realized that wasn't such a good idea.

That's a fun, spooky doodle and even if you showed it before, it's worth seeing again.
