Nothing exciting but the weather

Yep, that's about the size of it.  Our freezing rain is the topic of the day.  It's since changed to just a very cold rain, but this morning's commute was a bit treacherous and our weathermen are all over it - wowza!  I can't really blame them because our weather is pretty moderate most of the time.  You know how it goes, same ole, same ole.

I'm feeling a bit better today, without any cold meds I'm breathing on my own.  Just the usual hacking and nose-blowing - you know.  Nuff said.

Anyhoo, I really don't have a lot to say today.  My hubby did some "fence checking" yesterday and reported that the fence...and the pups, appear to be fine.  *wink*  He said the gate was closed and the pups were both outside, happy and clean.  They were very happy to say hello and ran over to the fence for pets.  I'm so glad, I was beginning to get worried as we hadn't seen them for days.  One of their older dogs narrowly escaped being hit on the highway Sunday evening.  The young gal who came to our door was very upset, and reported that she had to slam on her brakes really hard to avoid running the dog over, who was dragging a leash.  He ran down the driveway, apparently none the worse for wear.  This was after I'd called the dog control...hopefully it was just an oversight.  I'm really hoping that she convinced them that it's very important to keep their dogs contained and safe.  *fingers crossed*  Anyway, it's a relief to hear that the pups aren't locked up or chained, and appear to be doing well.  

The horses are all fat, fuzzy, healthy and happy, enjoying being inside today out of the icy, wet weather.  The dogs and I are hanging out at the clinic, doing "busy work" and answering the few phone calls that have come in.  It sure makes for a long day...but it is, what it is.  We too, are thankful to be inside on a day like this.

Until next time,

Oh dear. Pamper yourself and ride this one out. I, along with you, hope for only the best for the pups.

Glad you are starting to feel well! The pups will likely get better care now that the owners/landlord know there are watchful eyes. Hopefully a lesson learned towards improving the situation for the fluff balls, not ideal but it's something...

Colds are no fun, hope you feel better soon.

Glad to hear the pups appear to be doing well. Hope they stay safe.

Glad to hear they are safe. Many people just don't think, Hey, if I'm freezing and can't walk outside, maybe my animals need help too! That's a sore spot with me. I'll stop before I climb on a stump and start preaching.

Our big high today is 38 and that's too cold and too early for us.

Stay safe and warm.

I'm getting over a cold too! Today is the first day I didn't take cold medicine, but I'll probably take some tonight since my nose stuffs up more when I lay down. I am glad the puppies seem to be okay! It is always hard when there is nothing you can do, and all you can do is pray for their safety and hope it all turns out okay.
