Mother announced last week that she is on the search for another puppy. She wants a mini poodle, but also has feelers out for a toy one. I hope it's an either/or and not one of each!!!!!
Meanwhile, we are stuck in the regular dog yards cuz not only is the gate to the lab pen still frozen shut in TWO FEET of ice and snow, but the terrible wind and wet snow took out two whole sections of the stockade fence.
Mom said she might chop the ice to get the gate open but with that much fence missing, right on the road side, she wouldn't be able to relax at all if we went down there with her. I pointed out that perhaps just us mature adult dogs could go down there with her, she had the nerve to ask who those dogs might be!!!!!
As a result, we have had NO new photos of us cavorting in all this snow we have. She did take photos yesterday, but took them all from the porch, BOL!
The snow is still way, way too deep to make the trek down to the big yard, all the snow that is plowed goes on the lawn that we have to use to get down there so it is still five feet deep there. It's on the North side of the house so will probably melt some time in August or September.
Skye was bugging Mom to make a reservation for camping already...Mom said it was a bit early to think about sleeping outside in a tent, BOL! So far we have had to use the camping lanterns and the camping stove three times this Winter when the power went off. It has been an extremely LONG Winter here, BOL!
Tonight there are predicting another record low of somewhere below zero. Gosh, we were kayaking in March last year and this is the last week of March already.
To make it worse, they are also predicting a Nor'Easter to hit us tomorrow night and all day Wednesday. We are all hoping it stays out to sea so we won't have to see it!
Well, gotta go now, Mom is getting some baby chickies tomorrow night and we need to help her find the stuff for them!
I think you will need to cuddle the chickies to keep them warm !!!
A new puppy? That will be fun! And some chickies too, we'd love some of them to chase around! We are kind of stuck here too because of the cold and snow, no dog park, nothing but our yard to play in, we are sooo bored! Today is another day of freezing temperatures and falling snow. The old snow can't even melt because it's too cold out. Mom says we all have cabin fever, what ever that is!
I am a bit mad tonight... the lady didn't bring the baby chickies and I was all ready for them, grrr. Guess I will just have to chase Edgar all night again and wake Mom up over and over and over and over, well you get the idea!
