I know you haven't seen much of me the last week, and
We are pretty sure that it will be sporadic for
the next two weeks, but I told My Vickie
that we at least needed to check in and let you
know we are ok.
Like I said, it has been
foggy, smoggy, icy and bitterly cold
here in Northern Utah
The last few days with all the bad air,
fog and smog we have also
had the first ice storm that My Vickie
can ever remember happening.
Course Us Dog (like Dougal above and below)
still think we are in heaven, cause as you
know, we are good with water in whatever
form it should decide to show itself.
I have not been able to go for
walks or hikes for a week because
My Vickie says it is dangerous for her.
Apparently it wasn't too dangerous
for Dougal, his dad took him
for a long hike after the last storm.
But I did get to go and do a demonstration
about wilderness safety, Search Dogs
and Therapy Dogs
This was a great group of kids
and me, Tucker and Tye had a great time.
We even got to play soccer with the kids.
They had one of the boys climb way
up high on some stuff about 6 feet off the ground
and then they brought me in to find him.
Pfft....like that was hard or tricky to me.
Come on...it's me.
My Vickie would have got a picture of
me after I jumped up onto the high shelf
to find my boy but she was so surprised
that i climbed up there, she
didn't have time to grab the camera.
Back at the Day Care I found
my buddy Goose snoozing the day away
Actually, that is how most of us
have spent the last week.
Miss Bessie opened her eyes
for this picture, then went right
back to sleep
I guess I'll have to accept that this is
how my days are going to be for
at least a few more days, I kind of understand
cause this morning I went out to play
and cut my foot on the ice and kept slipping
and falling. Maybe you humans are right.
I mean, yes I have two more legs than you do
but no sense breaking one of them just
to get a little fun today.
I know that as soon as it is reasonable
My Vickie will take me hiking and to the river
to make up for it.
Added Note: Thanks to Murphy and Stanleys
mom we have a new de-icer for all of those
of you who live in our area.
We are going out to try it right now.
Mix 1T rubbing alcohol and 1t of Dawn dish soap in 1/2 a gallon of water. It melts the ice and does not refreeze. We just did 17 steps off our deck and it worked great!
Keep Calm & Bark On!
