Well, fortunately the furnace is still working fine. Fortunately because someone turned DOWN the furnace outdoors. It isn't even 8 pm yet and it's already MINUS 5F. That is Fahrenheit, not Celsius, BRRRRRR. To make it even worse, the wind is blowing like crazy.
Although the furnace is working well, there isn't any heat vent or heater in our bathroom. Our bathroom is tiny, so it's not usually an issue but tonight when Momsie took her shower and Toto and I ran in there to keep her company, it was actually raining from all the steam condensing when it hit the cold air in the room. My hair all got curly, BOL!
Our dog room is heated, but not very much. And, this house was built in 1879, so there isn't much insulation, BOL. Well, last night Mom got into her head that it would be much too cold for the other dogs in there. Not for me, I ALWAYS sleep in Mom's bed! Anyway, she decided that everyone could sleep in her heated waterbed with us. Now, there are TEN of us dogs, plus Mom. OH yeah, and the three cats.
We all headed to bed around 8:30 before the furnace turns down at 9. Everyone piled on Mom and she was trying to get comfy. I was comfy, I have a little snuggle bed right up at the top of the bed where I sleep every night. Ali was comfy, she sleeps on the extra pillow. Toto was curled up next to Mom. The problem was those two silly hairless wonders, Harvey and Barney. They did have their warm fleece pajamas on, but I guess they though the warm fleece blankies on Mom's bed were better cuz they kept burrowing down under the covers. Everytime they burrowed they managed to wipe the blankies off of Mom and she would yell and wake me up. Meanwhile Cryssie and Riley were perched on Mom's body and Zena was trying to squeeze me out of MY snuggle bed. Annie was being okay, she was sleeping on the extra blanket on the futon.
Finally, at 9:15 I had put up with it as long as I could and I stood over Mom and stared at her. She got the idea quite quickly...all the extra dogs headed off to the dog room, BOL! She did give them all extra blankies in there, BOL!
And I heard Riley exclaim as I headed back to the bedroom..."Whew, I was way too hot in that room, good thing Mom put us back in our own room!"
Riley, my boy, it was because of all you guy's HOT AIR!!!
