We had three days of warm weather last week and can expect more seasonal temps this week. I know that sounds great to most people since we're in the middle of March, but it's causing two problems at my house.
First, the warm weather is taking one of Hunter's favorite snacks away! The poor guy loves to go out and eat the snow. He'll pretend he has to go potty and stand at the door waiting for someone to open it just to eat the snow! He is currently limited to a tiny bit left on the deck that isn't receiving as much sunlight, and it's only a matter of minutes before that disappears too!
Second, the warm weather is causing all of us to run around in the mud and muck! Mommy puts her muck boots on (literally) every afternoon so she can go outside and play with us and not ruin other shoes. We love to run and fetch. That's great for us, but not so much for the carpet. Mommy says she specifically remembers when she and Daddy were considering my adoption that she said it would be TWELVE paws to clean on muddy, rainy days. Yep, those days are here!
Dixie went outside by herself one night this week and came in muddy from head to tail. In addition to her paws and undercarriage (her belly), she actually had mud on her head and back. I'm not sure what she was doing out there, but she must have been having fun! If you look closely you can see all the mud on the towel from where Mommy wiped Dixie off.
I'm happy we have warm weather, but I'd love it if the yard would dry up. That's not going to happen any time soon considering the amount of snow we had this winter, but I can hope!
PS: Happy St. Paddy's Day! Maybe the luck of the Irish will rub off on me . . . I've been in a little bit of trouble lately.
PS2: An hour after Mommy took those pictures of Hunter and the snow, it poured rain and took it all away! Poor, poor Hunter!
PS3: We received another two inches of snow this morning resulting in another snow day for Mommy! It's a lucky day for Hunter too now that he has more snow to eat! Yippee!!
