A snow day for me today as a Nor'easter moved up the East Coast. We continue to feel the effects here at our house in the form of high-gusty winds and wind chills in the teens. Never complaining about the weather is Todd. I did put a coat on him this morning so he could stay outside a little longer than the rest of us.
Speaking of wind, it has been a bit of a whirlwind for the dogs since my last post. Our last week ended with Eva and what I'm sure was probably with the help of Todd, "making dead" a poor rabbit that somehow got into our yard. In the nearly 10 years we've lived here, aside from the moles, only one other critter has found its way into the fenced part of our yard. In the early morning darkness, I thought that Eva had a towel when she was doing a very proud "look-at-me, look-what I've got, woo-hoo!!!" prance and dance around the yard with Todd in hot pursuit. Poor bunny. Poor me for having to get it away from her - Eva didn't give it up easily, not even with a bribe of treats could convince her - I had to pry it out of her mouth. I buried it in our woods.

Mobile Vet came to meet Bo and do an exam on Friday. He received a good report. Mobile Vet did confirm something that we already knew, and that's that Bo hears very little if at all. This now has me doing a bit of research to try and find things to get him engaged in life, and to help stimulate his senses. Any thoughts you have, I'd be interested in hearing.
Josh also had an exam. My concerns remain about his arthritis and being able to get up on his own, which he can't do very well. He is on as high of dose of supplements and medications as he can be, so there's not much more we can do. But he's happy, and part of the activity of the day and that's what matters.
Also receiving a good report card was Cissy.
Finally - Receiving a good report card is our snow day. A lazy day at home with no worries or pressure to be anywhere is my favorite way to spend a winter day!
