The official arrival of winter means no more messing around when it comes to being all warm and snuggly. Now here in North Dakota, we don't wait for the Winter Solstice (December 21st) for the beginning of winter. Winter starts when the first dusting of snow falls and sticks. We had a thorough dusting of snow on Sunday that has stuck around for the start of the week, and flurries are still falling as we speak. Thus, winter is upon us.
Snow on the ground means the dog bed heaters are added to all their big ole’ fluffy dog beds. The dogs (yes are spoiled) really seem to appreciate it and nap time seems to take on a whole new level of importance.
