Sigh . . . Rain

We have rain.  Lots and lots of rain.  1.6 inches (4cm) in the last 24 hours, so the Herd is expressing its total boredom right now.

Rainy porch

Rusty, Kodiak, Cheoah (er, cleaning herself) and Qannik (or, Qannik’s ears and body) on the porch


Dog room

Rusty and Kodiak in the dog room (they swear not their wet paw prints)

But The Herd is excited.  The A04 may have gotten theirs first, but we have more snow headed our way on Sunday.  Up to 8 inches are expected and we can’t wait.  Our hu-dad is worried he might not be able to get out Monday morning on a busy-ness trip (both the airport he’s connecting through and the airport he’s headed to are predicting snow too), but we think that’s great news.  He can stay home and play with us.

    Don’t you just hate rain? I do. I won’t go out in the yard to potty, I just go on the covered patio. For some reason, that annoys Mom, but I don’t see her doing her business in the rain!

    Oh, we got snow too!!!! Finally the yard is full of white fluffy stuff and it’s not our fur either.

    That’s a pretty neat looking dog room – who cares about pawprints – it’s their room, right?

    Hope the travel route goes smoothly and safely.

    Woos, the OP Pack

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
