If we were having coffee

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that River, my faithful doggie, has started showing some initiative. At night, when he’s had enough of staying up, he comes to my side, sighs loudly and stares at me until I get up and go to bed. Apparently, it’s not okay for him to go to bed on his own, he has to have me with him. Following his lead, I ushered my hubby to bed early the other day. Hubby thought the entire thing was too funny for words.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that we’ve been having a cold spell that was too brutal for words. When the temperature reached -26 C without the wind, being outside was out of the question and I’ve been keeping a close eye on my puppies. When they’re outside, they seem to forget the temperature and play on the snow with delight. Winter-dogs or not, I’m not comfortable leaving them out there for longer than 15 minutes or so. I worry about their little ears and wet noses. So I call them in and they do come…reluctantly and giving me sad looks of regret.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask you just how cold it was where you live. It seems this freezing spell has hit most of North America and there isn’t a spot that wasn’t under some sort of weather warning.

Definitely time for another cup of beautiful coffee. And a huge thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting our Coffee Share.

  1. Dogs are funny, aren’t they? They have their own ideas about how things should work and what their people are supposed to do. Lucky for me, mine were fine until it got down below -15 C. I think perhaps -10 is their limit for extended play. Well, Idina would stay out longer, but I notice her paws do get cold…

  2. My little dog wanted to know why it was so cold out and why it hurt her paws so much. She refused to go out to do her thing until she couldn’t hold it anymore. At least she was able to hug the snowbank while she peed as fast as she could. The winds were brutal here in NH with the added minus temperatures.

  3. I’m in the middle of the Midwest and we have had the deep freeze temps also. The last couple of days have finally been a bit warmer… still cold but amazing how warm it feels by comparison!
