A Dog’s Life

October 15, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Or maybe I should really say that I hope you’re having a pawesome month, since October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Dogs enrich our lives in amazing ways (just ask Kwon Do!), and there are so many wonderful dogs in shelters who are in need of loving homes. If you or someone you know is looking to welcome a dog into his or her family, shelters are the place to go to find truly terrific and special dogs. Dogs have so much love to give and will change your life in more ways than you can imagine. Adopt a shelter dog today!

Do you have a dog? What’s his or her name? Be sure to give your dog a big hug today and every day.

Bye for now!


Emergency Nurses Week

October 8, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great day! And speaking of great, we’d like to give a special thank you to all the E.R. nurses out there. They are truly great! This is the week when we get to honor E.R. nurses everywhere for all the hard work that they do each and every day. They are always there day and night helping people feel better, no matter what the problem is, big or small. They dedicate themselves to caring for others, and we are so grateful for all that they do. Max, the Hospital Critterz, and I are so excited to celebrate E.R. nurses everywhere and say…thanks!

Do you know an E.R. nurse? Be sure to give him or her a big hug this week! And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!

Computer World

October 1, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope your October is off to an awesome start! Did you know that October is known as Computer Learning Month? Technology and computers play such a huge role in so much that we do, whether you’re creating documents, searching online to learn fun facts, or even playing a game. Computers help us in so many different ways. In fact, we wouldn’t have this blog to be able to share our thoughts with all of you without computers! So there’s no better time to brush up on your computer and computing skills from simply learning to type faster or mastering an entirely new program. The possibilities are endless! Computers hold the key to so much information and fun. This is going to be a great month!

Bye for now!

Hop to It!

September 24, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope your day is off to a great start. Cherry-Ot told me that coming up this Saturday, September 27th, is a very important day for rabbits like her. It’s International Rabbit Day! And it’s a day focusing on protecting and caring for rabbits who are in the wild and/or kept as pets. Sometimes people hunt rabbits and treat them cruelly, so this Saturday is a day dedicated to raising awareness for the proper treatment of rabbits. And in honor of International Rabbit Day, Beary Bruised and I came up with some rabbit-themed jokes that we hope you’ll enjoy.

What’s a rabbit’s favorite way to fly? On Southwest Harelines

What do you call a rabbit with a positive attitude? A hoptimist

What game do rabbits like to play? Hopscotch

What did the rabbit give to his rabbit fiancé? A 14 carrot ring.

And don’t forget…have a critterrific rabbit-loving day!

Hot Hot Hot!

September 17, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re staying cool in this big heat wave! It is so hot here in Kite Tree that we’ve barely gone outside except in the early morning hours and at night.

Want to know how to beat the heat? Here are some super cool tips to stay cool:

  • Drink plenty of water…with extra ice!
  • Wear clothing with lighter colors.
  • Wear clothing made of cotton as it is cooler than many other fabrics.
  • Spritz yourself with cool water.
  • Wear a hat and don’t be afraid to dump water on yourself…it’s actually fun!

And if you do go outside, don’t forget to put on plenty of sunblock!

Bye for now!

Happy Teddy Bear Day!

September 9, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and we decided to do an early post this week because we are excited to announce that today is Teddy Bear Day! This is a day to celebrate our favorite stuffed bear friends and give them a big hug. Do you know the story behind the Teddy Bear? Cherry Ot told me that when President Theodore Roosevelt (the 26th president of the United States) was on a hunting trip in Mississippi in 1902, he wouldn’t shoot a wounded bear, and then a newspaper ran a cartoon of the President next to a cuddly little bear. After Morris Michtom, a shop owner in New York, saw this cartoon, he sent a stuffed bear that his wife made to the President. He then asked the President if he could call the bear a “Teddy Bear” because “Teddy” was the president’s nickname. And guess what…President Roosevelt said yes! The stuffed bears became really popular, and the Michtoms even went on to start their own toy company. Isn’t that cool? Who knew these fuzzy little bears had such an awesome history!

We hope you give your bear a big hug on this truly critterrific day. And guess what…I’m going to hug Beary Bruised right now!


September Starts

September 3, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope your September is off to an awesome start! Did you have a good Labor Day weekend? What did you do? Now that it’s officially September, school is back in full swing. And when you think about it, it’s not surprising that September is National Self Improvement Month. This is the month when we can all focus on learning new things and improving ourselves, which makes a lot of sense since we’re all starting new school lessons and classes! There’s always more to learn, and the coolest thing is that you can never run out of things to improve on. The theme of this month actually is the theme for our whole lives…never stop improving!

Bye for now!
