December 21. It’s the shortest day of the year.  But the good news – now days will start getting LONGER!  Yippeeeeee.  Today is also the first day of winter.  And in typical Nova Scotia style, we have rain in the forecast.  We had snow the other day – when my human was able to get some obligatory winter photos like the one you see above.  And these:

Good thing she did – they are saying it is HIGHLY unlikely we will have a white Christmas. Mind you, around here the snow is white and yellow.  But with all the rain in the forecast, it looks like we will be having a green, muddy Christmas. 

Today is also Crossword Puzzle Day – because in 1913, the first crossword puzzle was printed in the NY World newspaper.   So to commemorate that day, here is a dog puzzle for you to do – you need to print it out as a PDF:

That’s just in case you are sitting around because you have completed all your holiday shopping, wrapping, decorating, baking, cleaning, card writing, package deliveries, grooming….  Yup because you have nothing to do, you can do a crossword puzzle.  Actually – maybe you need a BREAK from all the other stuff.   Humans tend to get a little wild at this time of the year.  Worrying about everything.  Especially the gift giving.  I heard a quote the other day that was good – “It’s not what’s under the tree that matters – it’s who’s around it.”  Take time to enjoy just being with your loved ones – human and canine.  And OK, cats too.  But not snakes.  OK.  Snakes too – but in their own little containers… 

Take a break.  Relax.  Read a book.  Watch a Christmas movie.  Call a friend.  Take a nap.  Skip the bath for the dogs. 

(I worked that one in well….)

Happy Solstice!

Have a good one.  Peace and paws up!
