Alpha-Alpha is all atwitter about her new crockpot yogurt discovery, and I love yogurt too, but I told her that will have to wait. I had my first snow yesterday, and I have to tell you about it. I loved it!
We played and played. I was shivering, but I still didn't want to go back in the house. Give me snow any day over rain! I hate that frickin' rain. Why do you think my ancestors left Yorkshire?! I bet it was to get away from the RAIN! Now snow, that is wayyyyy cooler. (ha, I made a pun)
Don't encourage A.Alpha's scornful ways by watching this video. She is teasing me unmercifully now. She says look how I run right past the toy several times and don't even see it or smell it. She says to me, she says, "You certainly don't have any bloodhound in you!"
Pffft. How offensive! I MEANT to do that. I just like playing in the snow. And if she doesn't like it, she can just LUMP it! Tell her to go ahead inSIDE and get warm. I'll stay out here and chase squirrels in the snow! I will, and don't you say I won't! Yay for SNOW! (Caveat: This is not to be taken as an indication that I like to walk, as in go for my constitutional, on the wet, slushy roads, even in my boots. Nor does it mean that I actually want to go to the bathroom out there in that cold. No way. Snow is for playing. A.Alpha does not seem to be too amused about this proclamation of mine. Humorless, that's her.)It's very difficult, sometimes, to put up with her. But at the end of a long day, if she's been very very good and very nice to me, and has earned the privilege, I sometimes let her hold me in the crook of her elbow while she does her knitting. I don't even really care for it personally, but I'm sure it makes her feel much better. Even old humorless meanies need some Yorkie lovin' now and then.
P.S. Our friend Paula, the creator of the very popular Corrugator scarf, has designed a new highly EXCELLENT scarf for the Red Scarf Project.
