So happy!  Nice to be all snuggly when it's chilly.  Pretty Houndies!!!

Petunia!  My ScooterMan had a fluffy blankie with those doggos on it, just like that.  And I had a Petunia before that, but she was a goofy, clunky cow dog.  We called her PetieMouse.  Nice memories.

Pretty ladies!

What kind of temperature is chilly in the desert? ;)

Temps this morning were in the low 40's outside.  Heat is on but the tile floors radiate the cold in here, so at floor level there's almost always a chill, especially in the wee hours and early morning.  When Petunia first arrived, the first time I covered her with a blanket she acted like I was trying to murder her. Now she expects one. :lol

Kate will keep a flannel housecoat on when it gets chilly and damp in January, but Petunia will have nothing to do with a housecoat or the Thunder Coat. She will actually run away when she sees the coat.  Broodies...:rolleyes:

Lovely girls!  Thanks for sharing!

We've been in a cold snap  -  minus 15ish  and minus 20's with windchill   -  but today it has warmed up to a balmy minus 2 with some wet  :snow    flurries.

The day that Rocket arrived at our home in Illinois the wind chill was minus 25.  I don't miss that level of cold. 

My body has acclimated to the desert.  After a year or two here, anything below 70 requires long sleeves and jeans.

Oops...should have said  minus 20 C ....   not F!  :wow

 

I was wondering but figured you converted it for those of us who don't understand kilometers. :lol  That's just too cold, but another month and you can store the COVID vaccine outside.

Scorpions hibernate in what passes for winter in AZ. Unfortunately, sometimes that means in your house :yikes

I've still never seen a scorpion or a rattlesnake here and I'm perfectly fine with that. :lol

Those poor girls. Petunia is clearly looking for more help. Kate has given up. It's very sad.

I hope they get more covers or warmer temperatures, poor dears.

Pretty girls!

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
