The Snow

This is cousin Jack in the snow at his house yesterday morning about 7:00 in the AM.
Jack is such a trooper, he doesn't let little things like snow bother him even though he's not a fan of it either.

But then there are snow storms like the one we had yesterday, we know places to our south have been getting hammered with snow this year.
But we got over a foot of snow in our back yard and some places in our area got over 2 feet with in less that a 24 hour period, it was snowing at a rate of over two inches an hour most of the day here.

Our local news stations have dubbed this storm February Furry and at sometimes referred to it as a blizzard.

We had a lot of roads closed yesterday like interstate 81 was closed from the interstate 80 junction (which is by Jack's house) to the Maryland boarder until sometime last night,so how is a small dog suppose to get around if the humans can't even get around.
We are sure all the ski resorts in the area were happy with the snow once the roads were opened, but we are just saying when your legs are only three inches long its hard to get around and Sadie said " She doesn't know how to ski anyway but if it made it easier to get around in the snow, she would learn how to ski".

Our New Fountain

We got a new fountain because our old one stopped working and Maxx Says " Her O.C.D wouldn't allow her to drink stagnant water from a bowl, Her drinking water has to be bottle and from a fountain."

This is our third fountain in about five years, so we decided to go with a different kind of pet fountain.
The water is pumped up the middle and flows over a dome, which if your a cat, this means your whiskers don't get wet when you have a drink.

Maxx tried the new fountain out last night and said " This will do."
While Sadie said " It will take some getting use to."

Momo on the other hand says " He likes how he can drink the water from right off the dome, but he also likes to watch it and he likes to play with the water as it flows over the dome!"
We think he will stop playing with the fountain soon because his paws get wet.

Saver a Dog

We have added a new widget to our side bar, its called Save a Dog.
Its a Facebook application where you can help shelter dogs by virtually adopt a shelter dog, taking them for virtual walks and arranging virtual play dates for them with your Facebook friends.
And when you interact with your virtual foster dog, you build up points and the points in return are converted in to real cups of food to help feed the shelter dogs.
You could even virtually foster your favorite breed of dog.
We usually foster wiener dogs for obvious reasons.
Sadie says " She feels like she is doing a small part to help her fellow wiener dogs in need." and she plays every day.

Its a great ways to help shelter dogs , it only takes a minute or two of your time and its another game you could play with your friends on Facebook.
If you prefer the furry little felines they also have an app for Save a Cat.

Happy Super-bowl Sunday

Its cold and we have snow on the ground ( we got lucky we didn't get much snow from the last storm)and the big game is on today!

Sadie is looking forward to the game because when the humans are focused on the big game cheering for the Saints, she will be scouting for the food.
And it not just human food, its the good stuff like pizza, all different kinds of chips, big sandwiches, hot wings and things that the humans call junk food !
Sadie says " She can't wait, she never had hot wings before."
And lets not forget that the Animal Planet has the Puppy bowl on before the Super-bowl, and Momo is looking forward to the kitty half time show.

It's Ground Hog Day

It's Ground Hog Day and when Sadie went out for her morning squeege she still had to put up the hood on her coat.

Yep if you hadn't heard yet old Gus saw his shadow.
We had asked Mr. G Hog to predict an early spring, but he saw his shadow which means six more weeks of winter.
Thats a bummer, but we where thinking about this and you know it seems like he sees his shadow more times then not.

We think we might have to give old Gus a pass on this shadow thing because with all those cameras flashing and stuff, how could he not see his shadow.
And with all those people around him, well it could be a little intimidating for him.

But anyway we still keep our hopes up for spring to arrive.

The Weekend Started Off Good

Sadie thought her weekend started off good.
On Saturday she went to her grand pawrence's house and had a great time playing with Jack, Momo and Button and it was also a day full of belly rubs.

But then Sunday came and Sunday was the day she went to get her nails done.
Sadie refers to getting her nails trimmed as torture.
Sadie says " She thinks getting your nails done really stinks !! "
