Does This Look Like Spring to You?


The big freeze is over now, but it was fun while it lasted – at least for us dogs. Annabelle did nothing but moan about postponed appointments and cancelled outings. We didn’t even get as much snow as some – just enough for a magical walk in the valley behind Three Cliffs Bay – but the humans were all panicking and cancelling things like it was the end of the world.

‘The trouble with postponing things,’ Annabelle said, ‘is that they still have to happen sometime, and you end up with a train wreck of a week with too much going on.’

Pearl was more than happy to miss her dental appointment. That wasn’t down to the weather, it was because the vet’s tooth-cleaning machine had broken. Pearl claims she used her famous greyhound hypno-stare to send the machine a death ray, but I don’t believe that. The greyhound hypno-stare is good for making humans give treats, but no way is it powerful enough to travel to town and kill a machine.

I haven’t got the heart to tell her the machine won’t always be broken. Like Annabelle said, when things are postponed, they still have to happen.

    We’re so perplexing to our canine friends for whom time operates in an entirely different fashion. 😄

    Wow that frozen water is impressive. Buster and Rufus love the snow but we humans do panic Millie. The problem is we rarely get bad snowfalls so when we do we’re ill prepared for it and everything goes chaotic. Poor Pearl, best not to tell her that she will still have to go to the dentist, let her be happy for a while. Three Cliffs Bay looks like a nice walking area.

  4. The view of left snow on the green grass is magical… I’ve always loved such views. When things are postponed, they still have to happen 🙂

    I’m waiting to see if we’re going to get more freezing rain. Snow I can manage. Freezing rain, though? I hate that.
