It was a quiet weekend. On Saturday mom and dad had a lot of shopping to do. I usually go with them to the pet store but they said they had to go to a lot of stores and I would have to wait in the car. It was better that I stayed home. When mom and dad got home I sniffed them to see where they had been. They had my friend, Fast's, sent all over them! I couldn't believe it! Mom explained that they went to the pet store in Framingham. We have been there before but it isn't our usual store. They were having a short notice meet and greet for Greyhound Friends. Fast and his mom, Barbara, where there. Mom said she was very surprised to see them there too. Anyway, to make up for it, mom gave me the biggest cookie I had ever seen! That night daddy drove me and mom around our town to look at all the Christmas Lights. We sang Christmas songs too. That was fun.
On Sunday we were supposed to go visit Grampy in NH but the weather was too bad. It was snowing and raining ice pellets. The roads weren't good so we all stayed home. Mom and dad hung pictures on the walls. It was a good day to do that. We had freezing rain over night. I got stuck outside this morning! Mom let me out like always. I made it down the deck stairs to the yard OK, but I couldn't get back up! The stairs were covered in ice. I tried to climb them but I kept slipping. Mom saw me shaking and ran up to get daddy out of bed. Daddy came outside to help me. He put my harness on and tried to lead me up the stairs. It was just too slippery. He tried to pick me up but I wouldn't let him. Mom told daddy to lead me out the gate to the driveway and then to the side door to the house. Mom then realized that the entire driveway was all ice and those stairs weren't any better than the deck. Mom ran down the basement and got a tool that breaks up ice. Daddy had to use the ice breaker thing to get the ice off the steps and the deck. It was still freezing rain out too. I was glad I had my winter coat on. My coat was soaked by the time I got back in. Mom wiped the rain off my head. I'm glad to be back inside where it is warm and dry. Daddy is working from home today because there are a lot of accidents because of the ice.
