Bummer, zugor, although like you said it could have been much worse. Can you crate him next time?

Congrats on getting that door done. We looked into having one on our workshop and the quotes for the door-manual, mind you- were for 600 dollars and up. Needless to say we built wood double Dutch doors.

MMoB, the cold blast isn't going to affect you all that far south. Mom is loving those eighties temps, though.

Like the Jews say 'Next year in Israel' every Passover, I say to myself every day, 'Next year in Florida.'

LOL

Or at least, next winter in Florida, right?

The high here Sunday was 63; on Tuesday it was 3. There's about 3'' of snow on the ground, pure powder with blazing sunshine and no wind here. I got out my cross country skis and boots; it was great. I skied down to the road and got my mail gliding all the way. Coming back was just slightly uphill but easy. I wouldn't have needed metal edges on my skis at all. I'm going out again in a while. This could be the best snow of the year.

The mountains are beautiful. I'm looking across the canyon as I write. Summer and winter scenery are different; I don't know which is better.

What's the difference between Wyoming and Heaven?

You have to be dead to go to Heaven.

Oh, no. The house is bought, DH is finally 'getting it' that the move is happening. Move date is day after Labor Day 2015. No coming back.

I don't care if I have to buy an ambulance and move him on a gurney with a morphine drip, it's going to happen, and I've made that clear. Fortunately, he sees it as being good for the animals; after last winter we are done with the cold.

The climate there will be much kinder to us and our senior horses. They are 19 now. Horses live to 30, so that means they are around 65 in human years.

{{{{{{{{HiW}}}}}}}} look at you, skiing on those new hips! Do the dogs go with you? Do they have little booties like in Alaska?

I haven't forgotten you on that BP pistol, I'm just waiting for the chance to grab it without DH noticing.........I know, bad, bad wifey.

Try to be calm and relaxed. Sit quietly or even lie down. The best thing will be if he comes to you on his own. They love us and miss us. You're his new glorious pack leader and he's afraid of losing you.

Sadly, I lost my old dog April 23. My young one (ten) has been lost without him. She's become timid to the point that she didn't even bark at the UPS man until this week. She ran from my neighbor's dog instead of running to play. I'm afraid to get her a canine playmate because she's so submissive. She has her kitty and he follows her around; he used to follow the old one.

She didn't need boots today because the snow was powder. What bothers dogs is icy snow that gets between their toes. She did wear her sweater because she gets cold. My old one was a mass of fur; he never got cold, but his feet were more sensitive so he often wore boots.

The hips are working fine, but I'm not allowed to make parallel turns so no more Alpine skiing. I can Telemark, but I much prefer the Christy. Oh well, I can walk; that's what matters. If I ever get to Glenwood Springs, Colorado in the winter again I'll go to Sunlight. There's a 6.2 mile green that allows broad turns. That should be OK, but for anything else I'd have to stick to the good old snowplow.

My wife used to give me guns. She always included one or two little pocket guns as stocking stuffers. Yes, we hung up our stockings. That way we had presents both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. My wife told me that Santa was the most generous when she was about six and left him a glass of whiskey rather than cookies.

Get out there and play in the snow. This may be your last White Christmas.

I'm very happy to report that I went out to dinner with a friend this evening and Boca, the dog, did just fine this time. I think he was a bit anxious but did not reach the point of destructive behavior. My friend mentioned that it is hunting season and perhaps there was someone hunting close by and that may have been what had him feeling more stressed. I do know that he is a bit thunder phobic and that gunshots often produce the same fear as thunder in many dogs.

Dinner was at a fairly new place in town, Fat Spoon and it was good. It's nice to have more options, even though I don't eat out all that often. Heading home at 7 pm the time and temp sign said it was 18 degrees.
