Buddy here with our Monday report. It's cold. Brrrrr. And the cold seems to have affected Jan's brain. She got us all excited to run outside to pee/poop this morning and then she threw open the door to ... to this!
And she wondered why we stopped dead and ran the other way. Last night she tried to get us to run out there with ice raining down. Is she serious?
Note from Jan: They refused to go out the back door in the storm last night too. But they went right from the back to the front door all excited for me to put on their leashes, and peed in the front yard while we all got pelted. This happens when it rains, when it's sweltering, when it's freezing, when the wind is blowing, and when we have ice pelting from the sky. I don't know whether they think the weather is different out front, they think I can protect them, or they just enjoy making me suffer with them. As you can see, they did eventually venture into the back yard this morning.
We would like to add that Jan tricked us outside today. She went outside on the front porch to take this photo and we got all excited thinking she was coming back for us. But she came in the front door and went to the back door - and we couldn't hold it any longer. It was time to go.
This is nothing like the weather many of you are having but enough for us.The sunny south is covered in icicles today. We're so fortunate we don't have to live outside on the end of a chain! We wish every dog and cat had a warm place in this weather but we know it isn't so. :(
Jackie of Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance asked us - and probably a lot of other pet bloggers - to post this important information.
Pet-Safe Asbestos Hazard Advisory
Asbestos fibers pose a significant health threat to both pets and their owners. Asbestos is found in thousands of homes and buildings built between 1930 and 1980. Asbestos was a commonly used building material that when damaged over time can become airborne resulting in the fatal mesothelioma cancer. Both direct and second hand exposure has been proven to cause mesothelioma. Please take proper steps to protect your pets and families. Consult a certified asbestos abatement consultant when executing any home renovations that may involve asbestos.
