I have always loved the winter. I love the snow. I love to play in the snow. But enough is enough and now I just want some warmer weather. It's just too darn cold out there! Maybe it's an age thing I don't know, but I've had enough. Dogs though, they don't care. They just look out the window, see the outdoors and want to be there instead of here....where it's warm...and there is no snow....and there is hot coffee. But as Freddies' devoted owner, I throw on my long johns, that's right I said long johns, my snow pants, my sweater, coat, Detroit Lions toque, ear muffs, mittens, scarf and my boots. Then I grab a bunch of kleenex ('cause I know my nose will run non-stop) and a couple of poop bags ('cause Fred likes to make our walks that much more special)and head out the door sweating like a stuffed pig! Why? Because that alone just took me 20 minutes! When Fred and I get back 40 minutes later, I let him run around in the backyard to get that last little bit of piss and vinegar out of him.
Then I try to bribe him with a treat to get him inside 'cause even though his paws are freezing up he just doesn't want to come in, he just wants to stay outside and play.
He still thinks if he hides behind the lilac bushes that I won't be able to see him.
She'll never see me back here.......hee!hee!hee!
I never said he was the sharpest tool in the shed, did I?
Once inside, I'm feeling pretty good about myself. I pat myself on the back knowing that even in this stinkin' cold weather I still did the right thing and took my dog for a walk. I take off all my crap thinking "there that wore the little bugger out", walk into to the living room to this.........
Do ya wanna play Momma? Huh? Huh?
That's when I laugh and thank God and Becki from Autumn Blaze Bassets, of course, for my Freddie Spaghetti!! I love him to bits!!
