Winter Blues in the Hollow

We've had a ton of snow dumped here, and that's caused us to lose a few trees on the farm. The ice and snow just toppled them right over. This one fell across our driveway but didn't fall all the way to the ground. We were able to drive under it, just barely, but it made me duck my head each time. Nobody wants to be slapped on the head by a tree. No sirree. Thanks to Dad and My Boy and Married Kid's husband, a chainsaw and a big truck, the tree has been removed. That's a relief. Still, from a dog's point of view, I can tell you I hate to see a good tree go.


Besides the snow, ice and falling trees, our water line froze and now we've got a leak outside. Dad had to turn the water off at the meter until we can dig it up. We only turn it on once a day for important things like cooking and laundry and showers and such. There's just no water to waste right now. The good news is, NO BATHS for us doggies! I think I can live with that.

Good job no baths in that weather that's best. But bad for humans it must be very inconvenient for them.

Hey Tell,

We were just wondering how you're doing with all the wicked weather you've had. I fancy myself as a weatherdog -- but my specialty is hurry canes. I'm not too smart when it comes to ice and snow and the like.

Hope things quiet down!

Wirey love,

Jake (amd Just Harry)

Hey Tell! How've you been? It's been a while. Are you beginning to see a thaw?

Maybe there'll be some hidden treats under all that frozen stuff! So sad about your trees....

Waiting for spring,
Jake and Fergi xxoo
