A (Not So Morbid) Adventure with Astrid

Last week, pup Astrid shared a little adventure that ended up being a tad bit morbid. That was because she was showing you all a certain bridge that we sometimes go past on walks, and said bridge is sketchy enough that this here true crime addicted human thinks it looks like the kind of bridge a body might be found under. We almost didn't share that last week because it seemed a bit overly morbid, but then you wonderful friends of ours didn't even blink an eye. Many of you even agreed with us, for which we thank you for making us not feel alone in our morbid thoughts.

That all said, today Astrid wanted to share a less morbid bridge. This one is actually a bit quaint, at least when compared to the one we shared last week. So, here it is.


This bridge passes over the creek in our neighborhood in one of Astrid's favorite areas to walk, and so we cross it often.


We often see ducks down there in the creek, but this time none of our feathered friends were present. Maybe next time.

Astrid hopes you all enjoyed this far less morbid adventure! Happy Wednesday!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Today's wishful thinking autumn flashback doodle is from many moons ago. It's one of the drawings that I hope to recreate in my more current style.

Tip of the Day

Today's autumn pet safety tip is perhaps a bit random, but it's still in line with our autumnal series. And what is this tip? It's to keep in mind that we're in the middle of grape season. As most of you know, grapes are toxic to cats and dogs. We're sure some of you also know that, in the Northern Hemisphere, grape season typically ranges from August through October. This is something of which to especially be aware if you live in or near vineyard territory. If you live in such areas, do be sure to keep an eye on your kitties or pups during walks or other outdoor activities. As for those who don't live in grape country, and also for those who do live in grape country, be sure to never feed your furbabies grapes or raisins.

Looks like a wonderful place to go for a walk; I just go 'round and 'round my 'hood.
You have sights to see.
