The ice, the ice!

Well, this morning was pretty horrific! And last night wasn’t any fun, either.

Last night, we went out for my late potty walk, and it was pretty slippery. Well, actually, once we got onto the little street where I usually potty, it was totally slippery. I was sliding, and Mommy had a hard time not falling. I found a spot to pee, but I just couldn’t find a safe space to poop, and I had to use my ‘mergency poop spot, in the same little room that Mommy does her pottying in.

I hate having to do that. It is so embarrassing.

So I was really looking forward to a decent potty walk this morning–and guess what! It was even worse! I couldn’t even get Mommy off our own property without her falling! It was scary! So we went back inside and had breakfast first, and waited until the sun Melted some of that Awful Stuff. Mom went outside without me, too, and Spread Stuff and Chopped. And then I finally had a decent potty walk!

Mommy said it was Brave and Noble of me to be so patient about waiting to potty.

She ran over and startled me when I wasn’t looking, so I woofed once. It turned out she hadn’t seen me, and she was startled, too! She was trying to get something called a “lollipop,” Mom says it’s special treat for small humans. The bank has them like they have treats for us dogs, and her mom had told her she could have one.

Anyway, after we both saw each other, Mom introduced us, and the little girl asked if I could do my Tricks for her. I did Sit and Down and Dance and Give Paw. She didn’t know the right hand single for Sit, but I have her credit for getting the word right, and Sat. And she didn’t know the right word for Dance, but she had the right hand signal, so I gave her credit for that, too. She really liked Dance, and had me show her mother how she could get me to do it–three or four times!

They both thought I was cute and friendly and smart, and they wanted to know more about me. It turns out they want to have a dog, but the mom is Allergic, so they were really interested to know that I Don’t Shed. Mom told them about Chinese Cresteds, and about a couple other breeds that are ┬ácute and friendly and don’t shed–although of course not as cute and friendly as Cresteds!

It was a lot of work to do at the bank, but it was a lot of fun.

Tsnownami has to stop!

That’s what Mommy says it is. I’ve heard other humans call it the Snowpocalypse. And some say we’ve moved to someplace called Snowstormistan. That can’t be right, though; we haven’t moved. I’d have noticed, really I would have. We’re in the same house, and the same neighborhood is outside, UNDERNEATH ALL THE SNOW!!!!

The only fun part of this morning’s walk was when Mommy fell face down in a snowbank.

I saw on tv that someone named Punxsutawny Phil, I guess he’s a Groundhog who’s famous for knowing about Seasons, says we’re going to have an Early Spring. I hope he’s right. I can’t take much more of this, and I don’t think Mommy can, either!

So, the next question is, how reliable is this Phil guy?
