A Refreshing Change

by Houndstooth on
Bunny here at the keyboard writing my first post of the year.

I don’t know how things are in your corner of the world, but we have had a refreshing change here where I live.  Instead of being too warm, it’s cooled off to downright frosty.  I have felt invigorated and refreshed and I embrace the cold.  If it were up to me, we’d have these temperatures all the time, but nobody else here agrees.

Snug As A Bug In A Rug

My human has turned into a bit of a cream puff, and hasn’t wanted to venture out in the cold much.  She’s worried about it being bad for me, which I find a bit ridiculous.  I have journeyed to the frozen waterfalls and completed the Idita Walk numerous times.  I laugh in the face of Jack Frost.

Adventures have been a little scarce this week, but I’m hoping that the last week of break will motivate my human to get out and about a little more.  I have also tried to gently remind her that this is Walk Your Dog month and that we need to make the most of it.  Clearly, I need something new to get her going, though.

I think what we need is a change around here.

I am going to do a little research and see what new experiences there are out there to keep us motivated.  If I can keep the human warm, that will probably be a good thing.  When you get to my age, you tend to think you’ve seen it all, and then turn around and realize that there are tons more things to see.

If I can’t get my human motivated, then I guess I’ll have to give in and just curl up on the couch with her and a good book.  There’s nothing wrong with that, but I want my human to remember that there are still fun things to see and do out there, even if we have to leave Flattery at home to do it.  If we do just take a trip out for puppucinos, though, that will be fine with me.  The most important thing is enjoying our time together.

What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy time together in the winter months?  We need some inspiration!

    My girls don’t mind the cold weather, as they have thick coats to wear. They aren’t keen on wet weather, as even with their coats, their heads get wet. Polly has Arthritis and that is definitely worse when it’s cold and wet, so we have to change our walks to suit her.

    Certainly my girls like to cuddle up in their beds under blankets and dream of an early warm Spring.

    Hope you have a good start to the weeks. Sue, Polly & Honey

    We take them for a car ride to the grocery store. I run in and my husband stays in the car with the boys. We play in the backyard. I make snow balls and Schooner love to catch it. We play crazy dog, and catch me if you can. The best thing they love to do in the cold weather is snuggle in a fluffy blanket with us.

    Bunny your roads get cleared a lot more efficiently there. Here the streets haven’t been touched since the snow started on Friday night. They are ice covered by a bit of snow. Most of our neighbors have ventured out but we only went out on foot so far. It’s hard to go for adventures if the roads aren’t safe! That said, the couch and a book sounds pretty great.

    Tippy loves the cooler weather. Walks and runs are a must. A nice sunny spot to lay in is helpful. Trips to the local Lowes or TSC keeps the socialization skills up. Good luck getting your human to take you out for an adventure.

  • My girls are both abominable snow pups–they loves to be out in the snow, so I’m the only one who needs encouragement. Usually, they motivate me by getting cabin fever and getting into everything–treats, cat food, the trash, piles of mail needing to be sorted–after a couple days without at least short walks, but winter photo shoots can also be fun. We live near Lake Erie, so getting out to see the way the ice has formed as waves crash against plants and railings is always good motivation!

    Oh, we love the winter here! Sledding and hiking and eating snow cones are my dogs’ favorites. Chewy likes to make a daily snow angel as well.

    Oreo likes winter because all the scary humans stay home and he gets the park and trails to himself! He does get a bit huffy with me about how long it takes me to don all my layers before we can actually get in the car.
