So a taking Trixie for a nice walk is not a viable option today.  Though as you can see from the photo, I certainly did try.  We are having a blizzard here, something they are calling a “cyclone bomb.”  That is a winter hurricane with intense winds, white out conditions and lots of snow.  They declared no school as of last night, and a the governor has issued a state of emergency.  This is the first time I have ever heard of a cyclone bomb.  These storms used to just be called blizzards.  Oh well.  Anyway, Trixie is a needy girl – she won’t do anything without us.  She won’t sit and relax unless we do, she won’t go out unless we do, she won’t eat unless we are in the room.  She would not go out in the storm until I got her on the leash and took her out. We didn’t get far, for the snow kept blinding her.  So back we came.  Going out later wasn’t so viable for her to go either.  I guess she has to be desperate to go, and I’ll just have to keep donning my snow pants, boots, hat, gloves, etc. and taking her out!

Until next time, stay safe…
