It’s that time of year: there is a chill in the air, leaves are falling, and for us Seattleites, rain is a daily occurrence. With Halloween just around the corner, social media is all abuzz with pumpkin spice latte selfies, pictures of small children posing in pumpkin patches, and recipes for pumpkin bars, muffins, pies (I could go on and on – there seems no end to the culinary gymnastics of the pumpkin). No other gourd captures the spotlight like this one. It is no surprise, then, that pumpkin supplements for pets are at the forefront of pet blogs and Facebook groups. Since I’m a shameless “joiner”, this blog is no exception. This month, Chewy sent us a pumpkin supplement, Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up!, to review.
It was totally my fault.
First thing this morning, dear reader, I let Luna out to do her business. I was outside with her, so I know she peed and pooed. As per usual, I fed her about 45 minutes later, after the boys had left for school. While she was eating, I started emptying the dishwasher. After she licked her bowl clean, she immediately pawed at the door. Expecting that she wanted to go out and run around immediately after eating as she has in the past (although that is a big no-no, and I don’t let her – see here to find out why) I told her to wait. Normally, I’d leash her and take her out in order to curtail her running, but I was elbow-deep in dishes, so I brushed her off. She signaled three times. Each time, I told her to wait.
Poor girl. I guess I can cross my name off the list of nominees for Pet Parent of the Year Award. 🙁
