The ice wind blowing through my hair, the frosting cold on my pads, the sparkling glisten of the icicles hanging from the edges of roofs and trees; yes winter we know you’re here.
Me being the small fluffer dog, I am not a big fan of the winter season, don’t get me wrong I do enjoy it, for a quick moment, then I’ve had enough. It’s just so cold it makes me barking mad to have to go out there to pee, the snow banks become taller then me at some points here!
But what do you do when you live in Ontario, Canada? I do love it here though, so I guess I’ll just bare it. Before I know it Spring will be here, ahhh Spring, puddles to jump through, the smell of flowers in bloom, and the chirp of the birds as they come home for the next few seasons.
I definitely can not wait; Soph hasn’t seen a Spring here yet, oh my goodness it’ll be so exciting for her to see all the flowers start to come up, all the birds come back and the puddles, oh so many puddles; to run through and jump in. I just can’t wait!
Whats your favourite season fur-family; and what makes it so pawesome? Bark at us and well bark back, we love hearing from you!
Some days Sophee and I enjoy helping mum and dad while they work in the office, we give them plenty of ideas, snuggles, and remind them to take much needed breaks; to let us outside of course.
Other times we enjoy wrestling around the office with each other, playing a powerful game of tug-a-war and making all kinds of ruckus; sometimes the parents find it hard to focus when we do that, but they laugh and enjoy the noise anyway.
Since the holidays started they have been home so much working away in their home office, which is so much fun for us; more time with them yay!
It’s going to be hard to re-adjust when they go back to going to work I think, we love when they’re home. But we have had so much fun this holiday that were both pretty tired, at least when mum and dad are at work we can catch up on some much needed beauty rest.
Do your fur-pals help out with work around your house? We enjoy hearing from you all; bark at us and well bark back !
Let me tell you the tale of the morning dad turned off mum’s alarm.
I awoke to the loudest buzzing, I hate that alarm clock; it’s startlingly loud. As I pry my eyes open I notice dad roll out of bed half asleep; normally I wake mum up when it’s her alarm, but it seemed to be dads so I was confused because it was so early. He looked at the alarm in confusion and I thought he hit snooze because he curled back into bed, so I followed suit and went back to sleep.
About an hour later dad says to mum, “don’t you have to work? My alarm just went off”, mum jumped out of bed like there was a fire.
” what do you mean your alarm just went off?” She asked with the most concerned look on her face as she glanced at the clock. Then she yelled the worsed curse of them all, like a sailor; as she ran through the house like a hurricane and flew out the door.
Dad just turned over in the bed and fell back asleep, so soph and I did too. When he woke back up he did almost the same thing mum did, but he had a little more time to get Soph and me out of bed, fed and out for a pee.
My goodness what a morning, good thing I have the rest of the day to catch up on some serious sleep.
Ahh What a day what a day, the warmth of the sheets and blankets surrounding me like a cocoon. The loud buzz of dad’s alarm going off, but I just lay there waiting for him to awake and turn off the inferno of noise radiating from that darn machine; I can just lay here as long as I please; mummy has the day off. And on this day off, she is having a day of rest, or a “lazy day” as she calls it; when we simply just snuggle, watch movies, talk about the blog all day long. It’s just really the best time ever, wouldn’t you agree Soph? Uh Soph?
Hmm Soph seems to be having a little snooze cruise at the moment.. haha well in other news, my mum and I were talking, we kind of think a DIY paw print decorations post would be awesome, to replace the ones Soph had a snacker-treate on. Something super easy for this time of year, even kids would be able to do it, with parental help of course. So we’re thinking maybe posting something like that in a couple of days. Can’t wait it’s going to be sooooooo fun, and being able to decorate them how ever we want is just going to be the bestest time, ever. I think the tree will look even better than it did before.
Let me tell you the tale of a tree so pretty; purple, sparkling against its lights glowing bright. All the decorations hung with care in shades of purple, blue and silver, even purple and silver ribbon delicately draped around the tree. When the humans were finished they admired it, every evening they would plug it in and enjoy the warmth and sparkle of the tree.
One day I let myself out of my kennel, it’s simple really, just poke out my paw and lift the latch; I though Sophee would enjoy some freedom as well so lifting the latch she was realesed ! That’s all where it all went wrong, she ran through the house like a tornado, ripping decorations off the beautiful tree chewing them to bits; ALL OVER THE HOUSE. First on the couch glitter everywhere, oh the horror! With the next she carried them to the bed glitter all over the fresh sheets, she even chewed them in the spare bedroom! It was a decoration massacre, not a decoration, that was within reach, was spared.. she even was able to shake the tree and the star fell from the tip top of the tree.
When mom got home, oh I could see the dismay in her eyes; she scolded Soph then me for releasing her. But she couldn’t stay mad forever, could she? She spent hours removing the sparkles from all over the house, washing blankets and pillows. Me and soph had a much needed nap while she cleaned, by the time we awake we were surprised there wasn’t a single sparkle anywhere, what a good job mum- and I was right she couldn’t stay mad. 😉. She even lifted the tree onto a smaller table so it is now out of reach of Soph, but mum says we’ll need new decorations for next year.
