It has also been cold here! This weekend was especially brutal!
Now you would think with temperatures like that, my river would be freezing over again. I mean really, -35C! Anything would freeze solid in those temperatures, right!

We got more snow this weekend and I think that is wonderful. I just love snow and say "bring it on" to more snow. The peeps are not so thrilled about it. Oh and I think you should check out my friend Charlie's blog. You see, my friend Charlie also got snow this weekend! Big deal you say! Well Charlie lives in Australia! You know, the land down under! Check it out!
Mom has been very careful when she takes me for walks since the porcupine incident. We don't want another return trip to the emergency vet. She heard on the internet about one friend of a friend, who in the last 3 years for her 2 dogs, has spent over $8,000 on quill removal. That is an ouch in more ways than one! Mom says I am in no way to try and meet or beat this dubious honor.
Like I said, mom is being very careful when I am out. Yesterday I had a pawsome time running in the orchard next door, digging in the snow and eating the snow. We saw absolutely no tracks of any kind and we had an awesome outing. As I was burying my head in the snow and eating it, I started rubbing my paw in my mouth. Now mom didn't think too much about that. Just thought I was eating too much snow, so we headed home. I kept pawing my mouth, so mom pried my mouth open. Was she surprised.

Later that night, we again went out for a walk and mom decided to put me on my leash because it was getting darker and she likes to keep tabs on me. As we are walking we see a porcupine in the orchard crawling up one of the buffaloberry trees. This morning we saw a porcupine in a tree by the river and another in the orchard. Mom would just like to ask all pointy creatures that want to hurt me to just leave us alone! Ok, rant over, BOL!
So right now I am chilling in the house because it is again snowing outside. Mom has again lectured me on staying away from the porcupines and not trying to get revenge on them if I see another one. As you can see from the picture below, I am listening very attentively to her!
|You talking to me!|
