No snow here?

We have been watching the weather channel on TV to see how the snow is treating our friends back East.   The Bumpass Hounds had a tree fall down and take out part of their fence.   The Siberian's are bragging about their snow and how much fun it is to run and roll in.     Almost all of our snow has melted and we have bare grass.   It has been in the 50's during the day and the 30's at night.   The photo shows what I think of the cold weather.    I like getting covered with the blanket when its TV time in the evening.    "Chillin out" is not my thing! 

I have been getting out more often to the big dog park, but I don't run as fast or as long as I used to.   Twelve miles of dog park is wasted on me now.   My bi-ped says that my heart problem is showing up stronger.    I run a block or two, then I have to slow down to a walk to rest before I can run again.  Still it is lots of fun to get out more often now that it is warmer during the day.   Even if I can't run as fast and as far, there are still lots and lots of other dogs to greet and scents to check out.   

We are waiting for our next foster visitor to arrive and for our boarder to come see us.   Keep warm while we wait is my philosophy.

  1. Oh Mogley, I'm sorry to hear your heart problems are acting up. Take it easy and take care of yourself!

  2. I didn't know you had a heart problem. I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm glad it hasn't slowed you down TOO much!

  3. I've been following your blog for a little over a year. I didn't know you had a heart problem. I had to go back and read more of your history.
    Needless to say, the rescue folks and your humans are wonderful people.
    You take care and carry on as usual as a dog should - have lots of fun, friends, treats and petting.

  4. Mogley; You look so comfortable in that photo, can we come share it with you.
    We live near Chicago and no snow here either.
    We are thinking about you and putting you in our prayers that the problem with your heart will be taken care of. Take it easy we all love you.
    Love, Licks, & Belly Rubs

  11. Mogley,

    Love your blog. Know that you are in my prayers. Rest when you have to and keep up the good blogs.


  12. Mr.Mogley-
    You have hidden your heart problems well. This is not good news that your ticker isn't what it should be, but it sounds like you have a great attitude.
