A Wintry Woof Woof Wednesday

We're waiting to see if we get all the snow they say we're going to get over the next couple of days. It's definitely snowing up a storm right now, but we'll see if we get those 18" they're calling for. In the meantime, Astrid will celebrate the snowy occasion with a cookie.

Astrid does not like wearing actual booties, but she will happily eat a mitten of a cookie.

Warm wishes to all!

Tip of the Day

With February being Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, we are giving some tips on this significant topic over the next couple of days. Today, we have a few words on how a kitty or pup's health can benefit from being spayed or neutered. Just to give a couple of examples, spaying a female cat or dog can eliminate the risk of uterine cancer or infection, and can reduce the risk of mammary cancer. For male cats and dogs, neutering can eliminate the concern of testicular cancer and can reduce the risk of diseases of the prostate. Of course, pregnancy itself can be risky, so a spayed cat or dog is also free of unexpected pregnancy and the dangers that come with it. There are a great many other health benefits that can potentially result from having a cat or dog spayed or neutered. Due to their reduced risks of various diseases, spayed or neutered cats and dogs are sometimes more likely to live longer, healthier lives. So, for the above reasons and more, spay and neuter your pets! And, as we mentioned yesterday, also consider assisting with or donating to the neutering efforts of feral colonies, so that these furbabies can also live as healthy of lives as possible.

Astrid, every time I visit our local independent pet store, I look at the doggo cookies and wish they were human cookies!
I've even explained to the cashier (who was probably rolling his eyes...) that they look good enough to eat, and that my bloggy doggo friend gets hers and I want to eat them too.
You see, I don't get out much...*wink*

That looks like a yummy cookie! 10 inches or so predicted here tomorrow and Friday.

Love the "snowcat." ⛄
I was under the weather earlier this week (not the C👾vid, don't worry), but I'm much improved now.
I've been scheduling debut author interviews at Operation Awesome. If you know one, please tell them to reach out to me.
Over at the a-to-z challenge, plans are hatching for April 2022, including a big event this month (starts Feb 4).
Plus, WEP has the "All You Need is Love" flash fiction challenge on February 16 - 18.
