We got about 2 inches of snow last night! Yeah, I know...that's nothing compared to what some of you have, but it's a big deal here, in Georgia! This is me and Poppy taking our Aire-butts down the slippery steps. Poppy went first and I was so close behind her that we look like one loooong Aire-pup!
Here's Poppy (on the left) and Penny (on the right) searching out the pawfect spot to piddle.
Oops! Poppy found her pawfect spot just as the delay thingy ended on the flashy beast! Sorry, Poppy, no privacy for YOU!
Penny doesn't mind having her picture taken when she's outside! Maybe it's because the stoopid camera doesn't flash! Anyway, it is only 14 degrees right now, so we were having lots of fun, but Mom was freezing her tushie off while taking our pictures! Hahahaha! She's NOT wearing a fur coat! In fact, she wasn't wearing any coat at all!
Now, I have to tell you about our great adventure in almost being eaten! Two days ago, our mom spotted a ginormous hawk in a tree in our back yard! She watched him for a long time before she decided to let us go out. She knew that we are too big for him to be able to swoop down and carry one of us off! She kept telling us, though, that he was watching "black and tan lunch on the paw"! Actually, he stayed right there in the tree the whole time we were outside. He stayed there about 2 hours and our mom kept checking on him every time she went near the windows. He finally ate something and then flew away. Too bad...we would have liked to have had a shot at playing with him!
Yesterday was our mom's birthday and for most of the day, we were really good girls, but late in the afternoon, when our mailman came, Poppy got in huge trouble! The mailman came up to the front door to pick up a package and Mom stuck her hand out the door so he could put the mail in it. Well, Poppy tried to force her snooter out the door and she bent Mom's leg in the wrong direction! Mom heard a popping sound and then she could hardly walk for the rest of the day! She sat with a heating pad on her knee for the rest of the evening and she says it feels a little better today. At least she's only limping once in a while!
Well, that's all our news for today! Mom and Aunt Wendy are going out to play in the snow...I mean they're going to run errands and go out to lunch for Mom's birthday!
