Winter Snow Portraits

Here are our Winter Snow Portraits.

Am I not very beautiful? I am meant to be in the Snow.

And I guess Ojo is okay-looking too. Even if she is from Alabama. Where there is no Snow. It is nice of me to share my Snow with her, is it not?

Oh Snow, how I love you!

We are in our Little Home on Mountain. It is a yucky-long-boring drive in Car to get here, BUT our Little Home has made much Snow for us!

(And do not worry, Regular House is not alone for Christmas. Auntie Jahnet is keeping it company!)

The Sun is very soft. The people say this is because it is only just passed Solstice, and the sun does not get very high in the sky at all.

But that is okay! We don't need much Sun to ZOOM in the snow!

One of Ojo's nicknames is Crash. This is because she does lots of crashing. Like this.

I am almost eleven. I am much more dignified. I do not crash.

But sometimes Ojo can be very dignified and beautiful too. (Don't tell her I said that, okay?)

We climbed a biiiiig hill.

And this is what we saw from the top. Our Snow Place is very beautiful!

Happy Christmas - Santa brought SNOW!! (and treats!) (and toys!) (and turkey!) (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!


So many wonderful things happened! I don't even know where to start!!!

Stockings! Treats! Chew sticks! New toys!

(What do you mean when you say the chew sticks were to keep us out of the way? But we're never in the way! We're very helpful!)

Cobi needs help opening her presents.

But not ME! I do it all on my own! (I even tried to help the people open their presents!!)

And another one! I wonder what's in this one?!? (TREATS!!)

And now there is TURKEY in the oven!

But the best part of all is that I got all day with my people!

And the second best part is that we also got to play in the snow!!

I hope all Dogs had a warm place with people who love them. And treats. And turkey!

Merry Christmas, friends!

Goodbye Jack The Cat

A few days ago our people said goodbye to our Cat Named Jack.

Jack was kind-of Old. He was fourteen or maybe just turning fifteen. He was older than me! And I must admit that I am getting Old too. This is our third Cat I have helped to say good-bye to.

Jack the Cat was already in our house when our people brought me home as a little puppy. Even recently, Jack and I played together like this: He would sit on a chair and I would stick my nose into his belly. Then he would whap my head with his paws. But he never used his claws! I would dance away, and then I would come back and we would do it again.

Jack the Cat was very chatty and very friendly. He loved all people, and he loved all Dogs except for Ojo. He was also very naughty and liked to eat things that should not be eaten.

Jack had a Bad Thing in his throat. Up to Wednesday morning of last week he was zooming around the house chasing kitty treats. But the Bad Thing took over. He could not meow. He could not swallow. And by Friday afternoon he could not drink and he was hiding under the lamp behind the couch and did not want to come out.

The people took Jack somewhere very safe and he became an angel.

Here is a picture of Jack the Kitten when both he and our littlest person were very little indeed.

Good bye, Jack the Cat. Our people miss you very much.

Winter sunshine

I sit
Upon the rock
With moss and grass and happy dirt

My fur
Warmed by winter sunshine.

I listen
To winter birds
In branches bare in crooked trees

My fur
Warmed by winter sunshine.

Ojo sits
Watches, listens
Her fur warmed also by winter sunshine.

I sit.
Beautiful pose
Waiting for cheese
My fur 
Warmed by winter sunshine.

These things appeared in our house. They are full of lights. And smells from long, long ago.

These are more signs that Santa will be coming. I am working extra hard to be Good.

Wait, does this mean I can no longer sneak on the people's Bed for a winter nap?

Ojo is also trying very hard to be Good. She is either very, very Good, or very, very Bad. For Ojo there is no in between.

Me, I'm just kind of Good most of the time.

Are lights appearing in your house too?
