For days I have been nagged. Pepper has sat on the arm of the sofa so she could be head level with me and I could see her longing. SHe would even sit there with her eyes closed, a silent protest to confinement. SO i loaded up the whole show and took them to the valley. They had their coats on, Hyia had her sled. I had the car heater. I opened the door and released the whole show, then rearranged the blanket across my lap. It took 5 minutes before both dogs were hanging on to the side of the car. The child took only a few minutes longer in her snowpants, bomber hat, thinsulates, and boots. SO hehehe..today dogs are in hibernation mode laying in a sunbeam in my bedroom. Not in morose posture in front of the door hour after hour. :rofl1: Forgot to add it was 3 degrees. Dropped to 11 below last night.
