Snow time is smile time

These dogs are most definitely not suffering from depression!

Good people, I was late to my desk yesterday and was looking for something to present to you without it taking too much time.

The Care2 site came to the rescue with the following video. Plus, such a bonus following last Saturday’s article about dogs suffering from depression and how to cure them when they are down.

It doesn’t get farther from depression than this!

Hopefully back to normal tomorrow!

Have a wonderful holiday feast!

(Apologies but I do not recall who posted this or sent me the link!)

And just to show all of you that we are having a white christmas here in Oregon, some photos taken at home yesterday.

Looking like an inch of snow; perhaps a little more.

You all stay safe and have a wonderful festive season wherever you are in the world.

And thank you for all your interest and support.

The following seemed very appropriate for this time of the year!

Wherever you are in the world; whatever the weather you and your dogs stay warm and happy!

End of power!

Not the end of the world but …!

Dear readers of Learning from Dogs.  I started writing this blog on July 15th, 2009.  Up until today I hadn’t missed a daily post for you.  However, there was none for today!

On Thursday it started snowing here in Southern Oregon and by the evening such was the accumulation on the grid that the power went out around 6pm local time (Pacific Standard Time – PST).  The power is still out as I write this at 5pm on Saturday evening.  I managed to get our generator hooked up yesterday but then ran out of fuel earlier today.  Our very kind neighbours, Clarence and Margo, brought over 10 gallons a short while ago so we are back in business.

Not the best of photos but it showed some 3 or 4 inches laying on the ground as of yesterday.  The snow was very wet and has brought down a number of trees including one that blocked our driveway.  Thanks goodness for my new toy, our tractor, so that the tree could be dragged clear.

So apologies for the break in service but as they say, it is due to circumstances beyond our control.  We have now had about 10 inches of snow and there are still flurries coming through very regularly.

Until we are back on mains power and everything has settled down, I shall not be adding any more ramblings to Learning from Dogs.

Meanwhile the season’s greetings wherever you are in the world.
