Over the weekend Mommy and Daddy took their skis and went to the mountains. They left Diggy and me here at home. It was setting up to be a terrible and boring weekend until Jackie came to see us! We were so happy to see her. We LOVE Jackie because she gives us carrots and takes us for walks and plays "get the sock" with us.
Now Mommy and Daddy are back with their skis. There is more snow falling from the sky tonight and it is very cold. Whenever we go outside, we have to wear our coats. I try not to go outside, except when necessary or when the turkeys come through the yard. The turkeys come through twice every day; once in the morning and again in the evening. They are looking for food and a warm place to sleep. Diggy and I like to chase them, but Mommy tells us not to. She likes the turkeys. I told her that turkeys are not nearly as cuddly as a schnauzer. She agreed. But Mommy likes all manner of uncuddly critters including bees and turtles.
I've been reading some good books lately with Mommy. We read one really long book about whale boats. At first I imagined that it would be fun to be a whale boat captian dog! However, I learned how cold it is on the ocean where the whales live. It's a place near Alaska, which is very cold and has more snow than Maine --where we live now. I also found out that chasing whales is not quite like chasing turkeys or squirrels. Whales don't run. They swim. I do not swim. The only time I've gone swimming was the time when Mommy tipped the canoe over and I fell in the lake. I was not pleased with Mommy's tipping and that she laughed while I scrambled to the muddy shore.
Shiver. I don't even want to think about swimming right now! Not in Maine in January! Burr. I think I will go curl up on my pillow now and snooze.
