Digging Out


We got the snow that the weather forecaster said we were going to get, now we have to wait to see what will be dumped on us today.  After spending the entire day yesterday shoveling the driveway to keep up with the snowfall, I am glad that when we woke this morning, that there is not much more to clean up on the driveway, but more snow is on its way.




I was enjoying my morning coffee early this morning, after taking Bella outside and when I looked out the kitchen window, I saw that one of our local police cars was stuck in the snow on the side street to the park that is across the street from our house.  I sat there for a few minutes, laughing, but then I felt bad that I laughed.  I bundled myself up in my snow pants and grabbed the snow shovel by the back door and went over to see if I could assist.  Another officer was there too trying to help, but his car was stuck in the deep snow.  They said that they called a tow truck to pull him out and that it should be arriving shortly.  The officer that was stuck said that in 14 years on the force, he has never had to get towed out of the snow!  They were pleasantly surprised that I came to their assistance, and thanked me and wished me a Merry Christmas.  I feel better now for going over to assist them, although I did nothing to help, it was the right thing to do.  Merry Christmas to you police officer who was stuck in the snow!  


Who’s Your Santa?

Boy oh boy, did I get a HUGE surprise last night!  Daddy brought me home a 5 pound bag of dog treats, and you all know how much I LOVE treats!  WOW, that was a nice surprise. 

I am starting to wonder though if for some reason my Daddy is Santa Claus, as he has been sneaking in packages that I can as plain as day hear squeakers in the bag, then he gives the bags to Mommy to hide.  Hmmm, I wonder what’s up with that?  I follow Mommy everywhere she goes around the house, but I can’t seem to find where she has hid these bags with the squeakers in them… then, without my knowledge, I see these colorful boxes and odd shaped things under our Christmas tree all adorned with ribbons and bows.  I wish I could read, because I am wondering if some of those squeaky things are now under our tree?  Hmmm, again.  Does Daddy & Mommy know that big jolly ole guy in the red suit or what? 

But the best surprise that I am not taking my eyes off is my 5 pound bag of treats!  Hee hee hee, I am watching you – you heavenly bag of delisciousness that is making me drool.  I will protect this bag from anyone who comes near, so you better watch out! 

So what do you think?  Do you think that Daddy & Mommy know that jolly guy in the red suit or what?  I am still trying to figure out this whole Christmas thing, as this will be my second Christmas.  Last year, I was only five months old when I celebrated my first Christmas, so this year will even be better as I know how to unwrap things.  I can’t wait!  I am dying to know if those squeaky things are under our tree.

I also wanted to share with you our snowy pictures that Mommy took this week.  It is quickly becoming “that time of year” when I get to head outside in my fleece sweater and romp around in the snow and make snow forts & snow doggies with Mommy.  Bundle up & stay warm!
