WTF? We came back to our nest box because you said it was Spring! Thanks for the worms.

Yeah...where did Spring go?

Okay so I’m taking a little liberty with B & W Sunday and instead of black and white today it’s blue and white. That’s right folks we woke up this morning to about a foot of snow! Let me repeat that…A FOOT OF SNOW!!! And it’s super heavy wet stuff. So far our driveway hasn’t been plowed but lucky for us we don’t have anywhere to be until tomorrow (I just hope they aren’t on vacation in Florida or something like that). The temperatures are expected to be above freezing later today and continue for the next week so this should be fairly short lived. Needless to say Millie and Walter have been out playing in it and having a blast.

Our bluebird couple arrived as usual this week and have staked claim to the nest box we have for them. This feeder is a platform that Charlie made a few years ago. We fill it with dried meal worms and a wide variety of birds feed from it including the Bluejay in the second picture. This time of year in these conditions I’m sure the birds are grateful for the help.

Sorry we’ve been a bit quiet lately. My (Cindy) back has been bothering me so I haven’t been spending much time sitting at the computer. I’ve been able to keep up reading all of your blogs using my Kindle, but I don’t comment as much since it is a bit of a pain. There will be more photos of different birds using the feeder later in the week.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Our snow from the blizzard is almost all gone now thanks to a 50° F day but we sure had fun playing in it while it was here. A few days ago we showed you some still photos of us wrestling. Now here is a live action video for you to enjoy. Make sure you have your sound up so you can hear how crazy Millie sounds while she is playing.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

We don’t know where Millie learned her wrestling techniques but she clearly always has the upper paw in every match. Millie may have had some teachers at her foster home before she came here since she was a small pup in a group of large dogs. Whether it is learned or instinct she sure is Queen of the Smack Down.

Like we said yesterday we had a blizzard raging all day long. We weren’t able to spend much time outside yesterday but we made up for it today. Millie had fun porpoising through the 18″ of snow this morning.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

The snow is piled high around the back door.

Later in the morning we all went out to play in the snow. Let’s start with a little wrestling action.

Millie loves to just sit or lay in the snow and keep an eye on what Walter is up to.

I wonder if anything is buried in this pile of snow?

As you can see the pups had a great time playing in the deep snow. I also took plenty of video and will be posting some of the action in the days to come. The high temperature today was only about 15º F today but tomorrow we will be near 50º F! Let the melting begin again!

These pictures were taken yesterday when it was 50º F here and wonderfully sunny. Today we are in the middle of a blizzard and the temperature is going down to near zero tonight. We are expected to get 12 – 18 inches of snow by tomorrow afternoon! Just when we thought spring was on its way Mother Nature slaps you down again! As you can tell we don’t really mind the snow, but mom and dad have had enough.

Hi everyone it’s Walter here.

I've Been Framed!

I’ve Been Framed!

I swear I didn’t do it! My pawrents have no evidence that I made this mess.

Go ahead and hide over there Millie. That doesn't mean you are innocent.

Now mom was up in her sewing room and dad was in the basement playing with power tools. When dad took a break he found this mess in the living room. Upon closer inspection it was determined that somedoggy stole a used toilet paper roll from a trash can and tore it to shreds.

I think it was a squirrel...yeah that's the ticket...a squirrel!
