Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

It's what we usually call Woof Woof Wednesday.
But there's something else going on today.
Pup Astrid, would you like to make the announcement?
Astrid? Hello? Stop all that bouncing!

What are you doing, pup?
Really, honestly, what is up?

It's not time to frolic in the snow.
Not it's not, no no no!

Today is the 2nd of March.
Can you tell us what that means, Astrid, with a woof or a bark?
It's the birthday of a man whose name is not Bruce.
That is, it's the birthday of the one and only Dr. Seuss!

Indeed, today is the fun and fantastic poet's birthday. This year, I admittedly did not scribble up a new doodle for the occasion, because I've been so wrapped up in working on some other new series of doodles. That said, we have the past three years' worth of Dr. Seuss Day doodles to share. So, here you go.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Tip of the Day

Yesterday, as part of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we mentioned the importance of having solid plans for taking your furbaby to a local veterinary clinic in the event that they are exposed to a poisonous substance. Along these same lines, also don't forget about the ASPCA Poison Control Center, which you can call 24/7. The phone number is 888-426-4435. This is an option in perhaps a bit less dire circumstances, when it is more likely that immediate medical attention is not needed. The ASPCA Poison Control Center can help you determine, for example, if the amount of chocolate your dog ate or if the pill of your human medication that your cat swallowed is something that might warrant a rush trip to the vet. Though, they can also potentially recommend treatments or at-home first aid tips in the case of poison exposure. There is the chance that you will be charged a consultation fee, but, should you need professional poison control advice immediately, that number might very well be a good one to call.

I love that first photo...I had to look twice to see that what I thought was a beige marking was actually your tail
Well done

Aww, look at Astrid out in the snow!
We are hoping that the white stuff doesn't fall from the sky anymore, or melts as soon as it does.
We are all so over Wintertime!

We loved seeing Astrid, and your Seussical poem about her snow antics was great. We also enjoyed your doodles (of course!). :)
