Winter Begins .... and so it does

Yesterday was my humans most leastest favorite day of the year. Yet it is one of his favorite days. Really? See what I have to live with? Today, being the first day of winter, he knows it only means more cold weather, snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain, polar vortexes, and fog, are on the way before the pawsitively beautiful warm weather of spring and the pawsome hot days of summer. Yes, I said pawsome hot days of summer- to him, at least.

Why would it be one of his favorites- it was the shortest day of the year! So, my human knows starting today the days will be getting longer- even though just a few minutes a day- cold they may be- as we head to the pawsomeness of Spring! 

Barkingly, it’s the time of year that gets a bit hilarious as my human puts on everything he can wear to keep himself warm on our walks. Sometimes he tries to put a coat on me to keep the cold out which can be embarrassing as I don’t need a coat- well, maybe at 20 degrees or lower. WOOF!!! He did buy me a winter coat several years ago when I first moved to Virginia. It was much colder than what I was used to in North Carolina. 

Happy Winter- not sure which is more embarrassing, my human dressing like an Eskimo in winter or just wearing shorts in the summer. I digress and roll over once more for a belly rub.

Happy Winter!
