Colder. Snowier. Better.

We told you about Tuesday. Can you believe that Wednesday was colder? Snowier? Better? At least if you are a Siberian Husky, it is better.

What perfect weather!

The only problem was that the afternoon was a little warm. Yes, our high was all the way up to 15ºF (-9ºC). And how do you pass a hot afternoon like that?

Napping, of course.

Yes, it was another super Siberian Snow day and we were all thrilled with it. The good news is it is supposed to be even colder on Saturday.

Just a couple of days left for the Valentines Hearts for the Herd, so last chance to mail a Valentine to Dog’s Name, PO Box 1835, Maggie Valley, NC 28751. Feel free to include a check made out to Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.

The Typhoon fan club is really kicking things into gear with 89 Valentines! The best news of all is that we have crossed the $1500 mark for Sarge’s to help homeless dogs and cats!
