Barks and Butt-sniffs from (the incredible) Hulk
Well, the groundhog was a failure this year. When he came out of his burrow on February 2nd, the sky was overcast, so I am sure he didn't see his shadow, and Spring should be here by now. But it isn't----it has been below freezing most mornings for the past month, and this morning we woke up to a SNOW STORM. Horrible big flakes, coming down thick and hard. It would not be so bad if it was cold enough to ripen the poop-sicles, but it isn't that cold. They stay squishy, which isn't nearly as good as nice crisp frozen poop-sicles! If they are solidly frozen I can sneak and take them in the house to enjoy in the comfort of my spot beside the stove.
Vixen, Emma, Henny-Penny and I are ready for Spring. Henny-Penny and Emma HATE winter. Vixen and I like it for a while, but about this time every year, CABIN FEVER sets in, and we spend a lot of time arguing. Dad hates it when we argue-----he always screams at us to knock it off. We almost never get physical, usually we just scream at each other and make faces. Twice Vixen has pierced my ear however, and once I bit her tail and made it bleed. She splattered blood all over the house! Dad got mad at me, but it was Vixen's fault. She shouldn't have run around wagging her tail!
Yesterday Dad got to play in the snow. We were coming up our (steep) icy driveway, when, about halfway up, the studded tires lost their grip and the car went sliding backward down the driveway! When that happens we build up a considerable amount of speed. Well, this time we ended up in a snowbank, so Dad got to crawl around in the deep snow to install the tire chains. I stayed in the car and watched through the window.
Later, Ol' Weird John came to return some borrowed DVDs, and the same thing happened to him! Dad walked down the driveway (actually, he slid partway down on his back, after his feet shot out from under him), and helped ol' John install his chains so he could get out of the snowbank. Dad made me stay in the yard, but I stood at the fence and shouted encouragement at them while they were playing in the snow!
