We Can Breathe Again!

Good News!  The winds came and blew out all our smog!  We are happy to breathe again!  To celebrate, mom and dad took us on a walkie.  We went 5.3 miles.  It was wonderful!!
We had the trail to ourselves except for a few other people with very unsocialized dogs.
After awhile Stanley had to quench his thirst for some (not yellow) snow.
We had such a blast.  There were a million smells we had to check out!
I stopped in my tracks, surprised what I saw . . .
Cactus in the snow!  How odd is that?  Actually, around here not too odd but usually closer to the mountain.
You can see that a storm is brewing.  This is the storm that made us happy by bringing  clean air (and a warmer temperature).
The weatherman says it will start snowing in a couple hours and then it's gonna get REALLY cold!

Now we know that we have some friends that live in other places where it is cold like this all the time but our "normal" high for January is in the 30's.  Mom says she is going to suffer.  I think she needs furs like me and Stanley!

We are soooooo relieved that the bad air is GONE from your area.

OMD THAT is FREEZING COLD. Bet you are counting Days until SPRING.

Your mom needs FURS???? When we get the chance we rub on our mom's clothes and deposit our furs there fur her WARMTH. You should give that a try. We are SURE that YOUR Mom would love it as much as OUR mom does. You should just See and HEAR how excited she gets when she discovers that we have GIFTED Her.

The fresh air is wonderful. MOM just took me on a walk, in the dark, with all this snow that is coming down. A big truck just about slammed into us. AND we were on the sidewalk. Crazy people. Well I guess it is time to cuddle on the couch.
