Winter Stinks

This winter has been brutal, made more-so due to the fact that we have two dogs. We haven’t seen the grass in well over a week and what had been a semi-pretty coating of snow is now a thick coating of ice which makes it treacherous to take the dogs out. Not to mention treacherous to do your business while balancing on said ice – just ask the doggies. It’s actually kind of hilarious to watch Lucy insist on walking on the ice only to get frustrated and scared every time her paws break the ice and sink into the snow.

The view out our front door.  That would be a four-foot high pile of snow.

I can tell Lucy is getting chunk(ier) and the dogs are both stir crazy at times. I feel badly but combined with the dangerously low temps and icy sidewalks and roads, it’s very hard to get them out for decent walks.

Fortunately on Saturday we had a surprise package to break up the cabin fever!

The mystery package

Snowy’s future forever family sent her a care package when we thought we battling a cancer diagnosis. Fortunately we’re only dealing with recurring UTIs but the care package was appreciated nonetheless.

The girls were each given a soft, fleecy blanket and a nylabone. It was such a sweet gesture and both dogs were very happy.

Snowy is going to be a very, very happy girl in her forever home.
