Winter Wonderland

I need to get something off of my chest. I live in Texas for a reason. It's not all the cowboys and horses. Texas is warm. Usually it's downright hot. That's why I live here. Now, let me tell you, I understand winter. In Texas, winter is February. It can get downright chilly, then. But it is still fall here. December 2, and I wake up to this!

I can tell you, as soon as the front door opened, and I saw my car covered by FROZEN WATER, I slammed myself into reverse. I could have held it for days, but mom said I had to go potty. She dragged me onto the front porch. I tried to quickly potty on the porch, so mom and I could get back inside, but mom said no. She made me walk in the wet freezing grass to potty!

After that torture, this is what I did for the next several hours to recuperate. See the tight ball I made of myself? That means it is cold!

After my first nap, I looked out again. Oh, the horror! Did we move to Minnesota overnight?

The poor dog we made was also covered with a blanket of arctic evil. I suggested that he shake it off, but he just stood there stoically. Poor guy - I feel sorry for him and all the other outside dogs who woke up shivering this morning.

Just seeing all of that made me chilly, so I went back inside and spent the remainder of the day in my toasty bed, dreaming of July.

Texas, I have to tell you - I am disappointed. Warm it up, buddy, or we may have to move south...

My mom tried to make me go out in all that frozen water, but I wasn't having anything of it! So she let me go back inside and told me I had to "cross my legs" until she came home at lunch. I don't know what that meant, but at least it was better than being outside!

This morning was almost as bad. It wasn't wet, but it was still cold!! I tried to stay inside again, but Mom made me go out this time. Hrmph.

What kind of freezin' place is that for a sun dog. I hope that bed has a heater. Take care, buddy.

Oh man we got snow yesterday. It just isn't right I tell you.
