Happy Winter Solstice- The Shortest Day of the Year

"Happy WINTER"- feels like I should be saying "Happy SPRING!!!"  We've had a glorious Fall season and Winter is starting on a great degree- in the 60's, maybe 70's.  Christmas Eve. the pawsome 70's!!  WOOF!!  Will get a few good long walks out of my human that day!

Today, is one of my human's favorite days despite that it's usually cold.  The first day of winter, known better to him as the "Shortest Day of the Year."  While the next few months will seem like the longest months and days of the year, my human likes this day because it means the days begin getting longer.

His favorite moment in the winter season? It's after several days have past, maybe a month, and my human notices the sun setting later than usual- like a 1/2 hour or so later.  For him, it means Spring and Summer are on their way- plan the outdoor activities! WOOF!!!!    He will jump for joy- I will stand in total embarrassment hoping no one notices!  WOOF!!!

Happy First Day of Winter!
