Welcome cold weather and warm sunshine! Yesterday morning the grass was all white, covered in frost. It was in the upper twenties and the cold gives us hounds a serious energy boost! After lots of wild play in the yard, it feels good to come in the house and sit in some sunshine. Mom had to turn the heat on for a couple hours because it was too cold inside for her.
Cat bro Bert is not going outside much the past few days since it has turned cold. He is also giving up his all night outside hunting trips. No more overnight hunting for the old man cat. He is not a fan of the cold like we dogs are. Bert is usually seen stealing our dog beds to relax in the sun puddles during the day.
Bailie has her big donut bed she loves, but with the colder weather she moves over one bed to sleep in the sunshine. I guess everyone loves to be warm after walking and running in the cold air.
Madison, aka, Gladys Kravitz is thankful her neighborhood spy bed is in the sunshine most of the day. She enjoys sitting there keeping watch and often falls asleep on the job.
I am not big on too much sunshine, but I am able to get enough from the wicker kennel bed. This is my favorite napping spot and the sun stops by to kiss me in the face now and then. Nelson and I are playing chase and wrestle around two hours a day in the cold weather. Both of us get pretty worn out from all the exercise.
Nelson is the odd duck. He is the only boy, and he rarely lays in the sun or on a bed. The guy prefers hard floors for some reason. I think he is napping by the door to make sure I don’t slip out without him! By the way, all the mess on the glass behind him is his doing. He insists on pawing at the door to come in and it makes quite the mess.
We are thankful summer is gone and we have sunshine to nap in!
