Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Things are still green here east of Toronto but I'm relieved all is FINALLY frozen! That "fantastic weather" nets me 14 filthy things for each day it lasts:
12 paws sometimes muddied right up to the elbows & knees, plus
2 bellies.
It's nice that one of our 3 dogs is a large standard poodle, plenty tall enough that he never splashes mud up onto his tummy hairs. While the dogs themselves are thoroughly indifferent to the cold mud (two seek it out and shove their heads into the mud of the creek banks during warm weather), I get the task of cleaning them up before they come back in the house.

[groan] It's supposed to get warm again tomorrow so I'll be back to cleaning up mud for a while. I have one question: Where the heck is that snow?? I need snow!! Ahh, the joyful thought of 12 clean feet and 3 clean tummies...
