Read about a recent “litter crisis”…
at our place and why I don’t like scented cat litter: here.
Yes, at long last, I’m baaaaack… to writing feline product reviews.
And if I may say so myself, I’m getting even wittier and more entertaining with each passing year! 😉
You probably didn’t think that was possible, right? Snooooortttt…
Right on and read on, oh humans and felines!
Mr. Cheddar here.
Yes, the DOG-DAYS of summer are just around the corner.
And today, I want to talk about…
D-O-G-S and one of my Summer Pet Peeves:
Shaving/clipping off a dog’s fur in summer.
I’ve asked one of our online canine pals to join us, the fabulous Rumpydog.
Yes, I know he’s a dog and I’m a cat but he is one cool dude, even if he is a canine!!!
Ain’t he a cutie? And look at that gorgeous coat!
So here’s the scoop and I’m not talking litter this time!
We live in a small city where there are a lot of dogs and usually very hot summers. Every year, there are so/too many dogs walking around with their coats shaved off. The humans who live with these dogs must think they are doing them a favor shaving off their fur, but in reality they aren’t.
Here’s one of many articles online about why you shouldn’t shave off your dog’s fur, unless it is for medical reasons.
Meowmie also asked a couple of veterinarians about this and they said the same thing.
A dog’s coat is to protect them not just the cold but from the heat too.
As far as the groomers who routinely clip off dog’s fur for the summer, well it’s just $$ in their pockets. They aren’t going to tell clients not to do this are they?
Save some $$ this summer and save your pet from getting sunburned, overheated…
Don’t shave your pooch!
There, I feel better already. Glad I got that off my chest! 😉
Looks like Rumpy feels better too. 🙂

Mr. Cheddar and I hope you have the best Easter ever!
I think he’s a treat, just the way he is but the Bunny Ears do add a certain charm, don’t ya think? 😉
My sweet treat is a cake recipe that always brings Spring and Easter to mind.
My fav for the best Carrot Cake I’ve ever enjoyed and a delish (not to sweet) lemony-cream cheese icing to go with it. If you think the photo looks yummy, wait til you taste it! 😉 Here’s a link to the original post and recipes.
Happy Easter Weekend!
Happy St. Paddy’s Day to one and all!
I’m having a wee bit of fun out on the Green today, singing and dancing with an Irish pal of mine.
His name is Toe-Tappin’ Teddy.
Later on, we’re off to look for the Pot of Gold, just over the Rainbow!!
And perhaps some green kibbles and cabbage for din-din snort….. just joshin’.
I don’t think that would be Teddy’s “cup-of tea”. Maybe a wee dram of Irish Whiskey for my friend. 🙂
Laters, Irish Cheddie !
PS: Here’s some information about the origins of Teddy, Cheddie’s Irish friend.He’s quite a rascal.
PSS: If this looks familiar, it’s a revised archive post, still makes me LOL. 😉 Hope it brings a big smile to your day too. GH
Some great advice from the fabulous Mr. Cheddar! 🙂
Haven’t written a Mr. Cheddar Haiku in quite a while.
Thought this week’s One Single Impression prompt: Charisma was a purrrrfect opportunity. 🙂
PS: Mr. Cheddar also has a new review posted over at My Real Life Reviews
re: the Jiffy Cat Grass Kit aka Ched’s Personal Salad Bar. 😉
Have a wonderful week!
Mr. Cheddar has been exploring some intriguing employment options for the new year.
He’s considering becoming a private eye!
What do you think? He certainly suits the costume. 🙂
Mr. Cheddar is such a perkie guy and he can definitely get into those hard to reach places where other investigators would fear to tread.
Call Ched Perkie: Feline PI!
That’s fifty kibbles a day, plus expenses. 😉
Mr. Cheddar aka Cheddar Elf and I are already thinking about Christmas.
It’s just over a month away!
Have you been naughty or nice?
Santa and Cheddar Elf know! 😉
Mr. Cheddar loves to nap in the sunshine.
We’ve had quite a few sunny days recently and I managed to snap this pic of Ched, soaking up the rays!
He’s always my “Sunshine Boy” and he always makes me smile. 😉
Happy Week from me and Mr. Cheddar! 🙂
