The weather thingy on my side bar says that it is now 5 degrees outside. That is cold, even for me, and I like the cold. I have a very thick winter coat. It is so thick that water won't even seep through, and it serves me well when I am outside walking with Sadie, her mom, and my mom. (Someday I'll tell you about our walking program. So far the most interesting thing that has happened was yesterday when Sadie and I made poopers together at the same time on opposite sides of the street. It was awesome, seeing us work in harmony like that. And we didn't even plan it. It was strictly improv. I don't know if anyone saw this once-in-a-lifetime performance, but both our moms laughed. How come humans never have their video cameras handy when we do something really spectacular?)
Now, getting back to what I first started to talk about, my winter coat. People cannot keep their hands off it. They just have to rub their fingers through my fur and pet me every chance they get. So, I get lots of massages and I like those.
The downside of having so much fur is that I look a lot bigger than I really am. Also, mud sticks to my legs and belly fur when it is sloppy out. Now for me, that is not a bad thing, but my mom doesn't seem to like it. When I come back from a walk all wet and muddy, before my mom can get me cleaned off, I run away from her and jump on grandpa's lap where I clean myself off on his clothes. He is so happy to see me that he really doesn't care how wet or muddy I am. Now that is real love.
