It’s Really Snow

December 26, 2008

Now, it’s not much snow, but it is snow.  The first two storms swirled around Albuquerque so we missed a white Christmas here in town.  The ski resorts did very well though, so ya’ll come, bring your skis and your money.  Remember, New Mexico is a very poor state (perhaps because the US government owns one-third of the land and pays no taxes on it).

I didn’t need to go anywhere, but when I realized it was snowing, I could not resist a quick zoom up to the post office.  The camera should have been there, but was not.  Then I went another mile to the “fancy” pet store where I bought Chase & Company a dragon and a road kill raccoon.  These are supposed to be nearly indestructible toys — says the manufacturer.  It took Chase all of fifteen minutes to begin destuffing the dragon.  The road kill raccoon was next.  It only has stuffing in the head, but he opened a small wound and began removing the fluff.  So, these go on the forget-it-list.  Price does not equal dog worthiness.

The Cardis get a little crazy when we have a cold snap so the three are high tailing it through the house, around tables and under chairs.  They seem to like it when I stay home for a couple days in a row, and I must admit it’s fun spending down time with them.  We all climb on the couch and cuddle up – or Chase lies on top of Kip like he did when he first came home.  That’s the holiday spirit!

    Looks like the storms musta turned left at Albuquerque. I don’t think there really is such a thing as indestructible dog toys, they exist only in the minds of advertising executives to convince us to buy them for lottsa $$$’s
