Well, this snowing business is huge this time around. The water dish in the yard and most of the toys out there are just plain vanished. Who knows if we will ever see them again. We keep getting more inches every day. I am getting used to the shoveling. Hank loves it when the folks toss a shovel full of snow on him but I don't know -- the first time the guy did that I ran away only to bump up against a big tree and dump a load of tree snow on top of me. We do like jumping over the big piles of snow -- I learned fast not to jump on top cause you will probably fall right in. The piles are all powdery just now cause it has been so cold. Sometimes the numbers are minus or just one number all alone. We don't go out for long unless we get at least two numbers and no minus because we don't want any furs with frozen feets.
The guy is doing so much better. The doctor is letting him go to therapy as of Friday so this morning when it got to 14* he took me and Hank for a bigger walk around the lake and it is all frozen. It took a really long time cause he is not to bend his leg and has a brace and all so us boys did some scurry, slide and slither in lots of good snow. We were real lucky cause the trails had all been cleared off for walking and bike riding. We did not see any of our pals out maybe cause so many around here are small furs and the snow is deep and cold. Sure am glad I am a big boy and that I got a good house with a warm fire.

The guy is feeling so much better so he has been taking us for our morning walks -- the soccer field and the little trail by the stream are a good choice -- not too far, lots of running around space for us boys and sometimes we meet some furiends to chase around with. Let me tell you though that this is the place where I am thinking they make cold! Most mornings it is just 17* or else maybe 19* and then it goes up to the 30's later in the afternoon. For one week it was all rain and cold and we do not like that so much. This past week has been better with blue sky and sun but even more of that cold. Not much snow this winter but we got a little piece of snow left in the front for rolling around on -- I like to eat it too.
I am doing real good in the weight department -- people we pass say what a handsome big boy I am. Boy, when I first got here I could not even jump over the creek in a small place -- now the guy says I am riiippping almost as good as Hank. We wrote a letter and sent a picture of me to the company that makes the tablets I have been taking to make me feel better. Hank has been taking them too because he is a wild boy. Anyway, these folks were so pleased they sent us a gift card to get some more when we run out. Pretty cool.
We have not been visiting here real regular because the girl has a cold and her computer has fleas or something. It was real fine to look at my page and see all these gifts from dogster pawls. Hope everypup did have a good thanks day -- we had some very tasty little hens the girl cooked up and shared with us on our dinners. Bark, bark.

Our guy made it back from his surgery and has been pretty much sitting in his recliner for the week with an ice machine and a big brace on his leg. I have made it my job to sit as close as possible to his chair in case he feels like doing some pets or something. He can only walk a little bit -- maybe around the house and he wacks the ball on the ground so I can do a little chasing. We have to be careful when we follow him around because we do not want to knock him over. It has been one week and he is feeling better some of the time.
The girl has been taking us on all of our walks -- sometimes we do two dog walks and sometimes one dog at a time. Today which is Tuesday and really warm outside --56* -- we went for walks one at a time and had some good times. I went swimming and did do 15 swims out for the ball and back again. Then the girl and I walked all around the lake and the sniffing was absolutely pawsome. When we got home the guy did dry and brush me and Hank went for his turn. He went swimming and he did fetching and the girl was real happy cause Hank does good fetching when he is on an alone walk. When we go together he lets me do all the fetches. That is just how he is. Hank got all dried and brushed and now we are just laying on the deck in the sun and getting some rest in. We are so lucky it got all warm again. It won't last so we have to enjoy it twice as much while we can. Bark
