Excuse me...

I'm not sure if you realize this, but it's -20C before the windchill factor.

Today might not be the best day for working on your tan.

I do believe someone built you a finely constructed manger full of warm straw for just this sort of day.

 Oh, for the love of Pete, Callie will you just come inside! It's freezing out there!

'Who's Pete?'

'And more importantly, does he have treats?'

 ~Stay warm friends!~

Thank you for a delightful post today .
Until next time
Happy Trails

Oh Andrea ... She is PRECIOUS! Strider is just like her ... LOVES the cold weather! They would be best friends if they ever met! Kindred spirits.

Our Sadie-louise is just like Callie! There is just too much in the world to watch. Birds, squirrels, deer, raccoons, the wind blowing and on and on!
Until I say, Sadie-louise, come in now and get a cookie!
In through the door in a flash!
I love your Callie. What a great pup! And very dedicated to her Border Patrol job :)

xo, misha
p.s. love the new font! Looks awesome!

Brrrrrrrrrrr and to think my pooch is sleeping inside at 27 degrees. LOL

Wow, she must REALLY like the cold! I know most animals know when to seek their warm and cozy shelter but sheesh! They can be so funny... my black lab loves the heat, in hot weather there she is laying in the sun... you'd think a black dog would know to seek some shade.

Here's to hoping it warms up in the next 3 1/2 weeks!

She is just a beautiful snowy baby! I hope "Pete" found some treats for her! :)

Andrea what a cute post! Love Callie's new 'manger'....very nice and it looks like she's loving it too. It feels good having a dog guarding the property doesn't it...especially at night. Our Shep does that for us too although I find in this cold weather he's sleeping in the garage instead of outside. He's got a nice big warm bed in there along with his food but hopefully this year we'll build him a nice dog house in the shade where he can see his kingdom better. Please give your Callie a pat for me and you have a wonderful week!

So cute! I hope she came in from the cold.

ain't for city gals said...

This literally made me laugh out loud! Pete would make a great name for a dog...then you could always say For Pete's sake! when they do their little things...

MJ said...

Sooo cute and I can't believe it doesn't bother her!! BTW, I love the change in your font!

Anke said...

She's such a beautiful dog. Our two do like to go outside, but when it's really cold, they definitely don't want to stay out very long.

You popped into my mind this morning and I wanted to say HI!

I'm glad your finding humor and joy in your life!

Hooray for you!

And BTW, brrrrr....I think I got frostbite from this post!

Find happy! Everyday!

Callie is a cutey. Remi has a habit of digging her nose in the snow, and then coming in and snuggling up to my bare inner arm. Cold and wet!

So funny!! It has been in the negative's here too, but things are looking up and we're enjoying our "high" temp's in the teens.

My Border Collie loves to rest in the snow. I think it is craziness!!1
