Happy Stat-urday!

Happy Stat-urday, everyone!  Yep - stats are coming your way today!  You see, I pawticipate in the BlogPaws Influencer group.  Every week, I answer pet-related survey questions.  And the following month, I get a pawesome infographic to share with you!  The visualization contains a compilation of statistics that sums up all of the previous month's survey answers.  This infographic has to do with pet bloggers working with brands.  Have a look...


Isn't this a great and informative infographic?!? 
 
 
 
This infographic got me thinking that maybe I should work with Paper Mate, since I posed with so many of their pens and pencils today.  Instead of a Pembroke corgi, you could call me a "Pen-broke" corgi :) 
 
 
 So tell me, what brand would you like to work with?

Mustache Musings

How is your day going?  Mine has been filled with mustache musings!  You see, my mom decided to try a variety of mustaches on me.  Why?  I have no idea!  Anyway, she asked me which one I liked the best and I can't decide.  Will you help me pick the best mustache?  Above is the red, hollow mustache.

Then we have the black, filled-in, squiggly-line mustache.
 
Here we have the teal, filled-in, squiggly-line mustache and beard.
 
Finally, there's the pink heart mustache.  So, what do you think?  Which mustache is the best one?

So until next year..."Happy Cheeseburger In Space Day!"

Of Missed Parades and Purple Rainbows

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I slept in soooooo late, that I missed our city's parade.  But, I had an amazing dream!  I dreamt of a purple rainbow!   Yep - it was purple!  And, on the other side of this pawesome rainbow was a pot.  Not a pot of gold.  No - this was a pot filled to the brim with shamrock-shaped KIBBLE!!!  Can you believe it?  What a delicious dream come true!  How did you spend your St. Patrick's Day?

Brain Awareness Week

My brainy pal joined me today to wish all of you a happy Brain Awareness Week!  The brain is an amazing organ, indeed!  Here is a link to an interesting article about the brain and nervous system:

How do your loved ones exercise their brains and increase their brain power?
 
In an effort to contribute to Brain Awareness Week and help people exercise their brains, my mom constructed this little puzzle.  What do the four words listed above have in common?

Pet Blogger Infographic

Does your mom (or dad) love to spend money on toys, treats and other goodies for you?  If so, they aren't alone!  I take part in the BlogPaws Pet Blogger Influencer Group, which is a group of pet bloggers who answer weekly surveys.  One of those surveys had to do with human spending on pet products.  And the numbers are in!  Check out the infographic below!

So tell me, what pet products do your parents spend their money on?

American Heart Month

Since February is American Heart Month for our humans, I brought my friend along to talk about hearts.  Did you know that the human heart beats about 100,000 times per day?  That's equivalent to 36,500,000 beats per year!


Wow - that's one hard working organ!
 
 
I've been informed by my medical staff that heart disease is a concern in our country.  Since this disease varies by state, gender and race, my mom developed an infographic to sort out all of the details.  Here is a link to her chart:  
 
(Note - source was Center for Disease Control, and infographic was created in Tableau Public)  [You can hover over your state to see the facts that apply to you.  Also, you can click on gender to see the information change based on gender.]
 
The CDC has some great ways for our humans to improve their heart health here:
  
 
 
It's time for us to encourage our humans to love and take care of their hearts!

Zebra Zen

Do you like being you?  I like being me!  And that is what the zebra stands for...Individuality!  Sure, we all have our quirks, physical and otherwise.  But, to be accepting of our quirks is what counts the most!

Mr. Zebra - do you agree with my thinking on this subject?
 
He sure does!  So, embrace your uniqueness and the uniqueness of others, and the world will be a better place!

Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year!  Yep, it's the Lunar New Year and the Chinese Year of the Wooden Horse!  As such, it is a year when people will stick more to their principles and "stand firm."  Hmm - I think I should have a wooden horse for this post!  Where is it, mom?
 
Ahh - there it is, outside practicing to "stand firm" in all of this snow!
