For my friend in NJ

Mom says I shouldn't complain because some peoples gots WAY more snow than we gots. Her friends in a place called New Jersey gots LOTS more. I decided to cheer them up with this picture Mom took at the port in Bayonne, NJ two years ago. See how nice it was that day in May? A little hazy on the water .. but nice. It's coming soon, I hope.

Mom says she is tired of snow (and rain) and maybe you should meet her in Bayonne and you could go HERE where the sun is shining and the sand is pink. She is also giving Pawpa hints about "special packages" and airfare.

It has been suggested I turn into a porker so I'm too heavy for Pawpa to carry outside. I think I'm in trouble. Here's why ..

I'm already bigger than these porkers..

Or these porkers ..

And he can still lift me up!

It's soggy doggy day

My yard is a big fat MESS!
This puddle is as high as my KNEES! Maybe HIGHER even..

I believe I will stay RIGHT HERE!

Heck No, I Won't Go...

The snow that was forecast turned to rain overnight because the temperatures rose. Pawpa "tried" to make me go outside for my walk but that rain was very cold and the slush was up to my belly. I had a BIG surprise for him. I ran back in the house and went on a "sit down" strike.

You can't make me go either. Can you???

Note from Gizzy's Mom: I reminded Pawpa that Gizzy only weighs 18 pounds and is easily transportable under a strong man's arm. Thus the Gizmeister was transported to the park as cargo where he was rudely .. but gently .. reintroduced to terra firma.

Happy Valentine's Day

Pawpa bought flowers for Mom.
It was a big surprise!
She likes them a lot.

See how pretty?

If it's after lunch ..

It must be time for my nap.
On my red pillow.

To Eat .. or .. Not to Eat

THAT .. is the question.

Um .. maybe not yet. But, I love my Wacky Woofers!

Backyard Bird

Jus' chilling .. waiting for snow.

It didn't start snowing early enough for spillway pix. Truthfully, they might not look any different. So far at 8:30pm, we have about 1 inch of snow in Northwest CT.

(The little red spot in the upper right is a berry on the "pricker" bush he's sitting in.)

Here Comes “The Big One”

CT has a storm warning for Wednesday. Unlike previous storms that missed us completely, this one is predicted to be “right on top of us” and we are expecting 10 – 13 inches. Hmmmm….we’ll see.

Here’s the spillway bridge before the “The Big One”

before new snow

The Elusive Snack...

3 Dog Night

This dog sees Mom eating pizza while watching the Super Bowl.

This dog wants a better look at the pizza in the hopes that he will get lucky.

This dog followed the pizza plate to the kitchen .. still hoping.

(He got a small bite of crust.)

Sometimes you feel like a nut.....

Sometimes ... you just look like one.

There is a room in out house that's used for storage. Giz likes to store milkbones in there for those "lean" times when he can't convince anyone to get one out of the "milkbone drawer".

What do mean Pawpa went out? Without me?

Gizzy's Decision

Pawpa has gone down to the basement office.
I wonder if he needs my help.

Dozin' with Dad

We're just takin' a break. We wuz restin' our eyes.
We like to do this a couple times a day.

I'm thinking of lodging a protest.

Dory and Bilbo of Dory's Backyard have pumpkin crunchies and I got... YUCKIES. Crunchies sound YUMMY and so much nicer than what is in MY dish.

Hello, Good By

The skaters brought one of the picnic tables down to the ice so they could rest while skating. We worried during the thaw last week that it would be frozen in place when the temps dropped again or that it would not be retrieved before sinking to the bottom if the ice continued to melt.

Luckily, Parks and Recreation removed it successfully.

Waiting for Spring

A warm rug.
A full belly.
Let's nap!
