My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Hiding From the Cold

We had another 3 or 4 inches of snow yesterday, and it's back to the mid-Winter level of chill in the air, near -5 with a wind.  Ugh.  The kids have been hibernating in their warm beds and are quite reluctant to go outside.
Shadowfax is staying curled up in the warming bed. Yes, that's a heated dog bed on top of another dog bed.  She's a spoiled little deaf pittie all right.
No she's not growling, I just caught Shaak Ti mid-yawn.  This is probably about what I look like first thing in the morning.
Shaak Ti isn't getting out of her cozy little bed/blanket fort either.  In case you were wondering, yes our dogs are a tad bit overly pampered.

I thought that a growl. You cleared her reputation by mentioning it a yawn. Pretty comfy looking for a nap.

I don't think she could actually look that threatening on purpose. They're comfy all right, spoiled is more accurate.

Oh, my dogs are doing the same thing, curled up in their heated doggie beds, staring at me with a look of bewilderment when I suggest it is time to use the outdoor facilities. Outside? And that would be? And we would know it from?

I hope you're making a speedy recovery from your knee surgery. By the time Spring truly comes, you'll be all healed and ready to garden. I'm babying my left knee at the moment after yet another graceful sideways slow-motion fall on cross-country skis, ouch! (When will I learn??)

I especially like the picture mid-yawn. Oh the life of a spoiled rotten dog! It's not to bad at all.
