So, the family stayed at home this holiday season due to weather and scheduling conflicts.But we made the best of it!!! Bodhi got a package from his sister Nala, we had alot of fun with that, just a few fights but we got over it. For Christmas Eve Mommy and Daddy took us for a night walk,with no flashlights,we were a little nervous, but the christmas lights on all of the houses help guide the way! Then we came home and assisted Mom in the kitchen (at least thats what we thought we were doing) she made finger food and one of their favorite desserts, which we can't sample due to chocolate!!!:( The best part was snuggling up on the couch and watching christmas movies until we all fell asleep! Christmas morning was the best (for us dogs anyway).After watching Mom and Dad shovel snow and digging their cars out we put our new coats on and went for winter wonderland journey!! Not to mention the scent of turkey in the air all day!!! We got our stockings which contained greenies yum,yum! After doin some chores we all piled into dad's big truck and took a drive to see all of the snow that fell! To top the day off we were given many pieces of turkey at dinner which put us all into a deep coma. The end!
Whew!! The winds were not as bad as predicted,THANK GOD!! WE did get a couple inches, but it sure looks like alot more with the snow drifts. Mom and dad ventured out in the truck,they came back with new coats for us!!!! NOt to mention some greenies and a couple new toys! They said due to the severe weather conditions we got our christmas gifts early. So we went for a winter wonderland adventure!! Sam had some trouble getting through the snow, so mommy carried him until we got the plowed part of the road! The wind was pretty brutal, but the coats came in handy! When we got back, mommy gave us some warm chicken broth and then it was time to cuddle up the blankets and watch the football game!
There is a blizzard warning issued for our area,it is supposed to have sustained wind gusts up to 90miles and hour!!! Our area,the lovely foothills, will get only 2 inches of snow but the worst of the wind. Let me say that 2 years ago before Bodhi came into the household we had a similar storm,we were without power for 7 days!!!!! No generator,just a fireplace and let me add to picture our iguanas!!! I truly(this is Sam speaking here by the way) DO NOT want to endure that EVER AGAIN!!! I had no coat,sweater,boots,nothing,i wedged myself so tight under the covers next to my humans they literally had to drag me outdoors to use the men's room. All of neighbors are packing up and heading somewhere safe. But are we????? Oh, no the humans are hoping for the best,they borrowed a generator this time,but i would much rather be somewhere else!!!!
Where to begin? Yes,there is a dramatic size difference between the two of us, but we still manage to get along. The beagle is Sampson and he is the BOSS!! The Rhodesian Ridgeback well, that's
