OK. Enough of this cold weather. Yesterday with the windchill, the temperature was like -36. Cold enough to instantaneously freeze treat drool. My human could barely see where she was walking us – so needless to say, the walks were short. OK, Mr. Groundhog – we are coming to get you. Fair warning.
You know I got to thinking about the FG’s escape the other day. I’m thinking it wasn’t JUST because he was shack wacky. I think it was also because he’s thinking a lot of himself after his Meet the Breed gig. I forgot to mention that a local TV station was there when he was doing his thing – and a .00008 second clip of him appeared that evening on the news. If you blinked – you missed him. But it was enough to make him feel like a star. Albeit a falling star the next day with his runaway.
And speaking a runaways, there was a good news story out of Newfoundland. A few days ago, a family was traveling, and sadly was involved in a 15-vehicle collision – due to snowy weather. The family had some injuries – but luckily none were life threatening. They escaped their vehicle just before another vehicle hit them from behind. In the confusion, their 3 year old Shih Tzu, Obi was lost. He was nowhere to be found, despite their search efforts. They were not from the area – and sadly had to fly home without him. They put a post on Facebook about their lost buddy, but after 4 days and windchill temperatures some nights below -35, they had pretty much given up hope. But on the fifth day after he went missing, someone contacted them and said he had been spotted. One of the humans grabbed a flight and arrived that afternoon to search for Obi. He was joined by another family member who lived in the area. And miracle of miracles, around 8:30 that evening – the searchers heard a bark in the distance. With a flashlight, and a LOT of luck – they found poor Obi stuck in a snowbank. They say he likely would not have survived another night. His name has been changed to Obi One So Lucky.
You may see that we added a new link on our blog – you can see some of our Instagram photos. Oftentimes the photos are also posted on Facebook, but I think it’s time we mix things up a bit. So there will be different content in different places. We have not become Instafamous by a LONG shot. I think I need to hire an agent. There seems to be some kind of strange algorithm to getting Instagram followers – and we certainly don’t know it. I do know that some of the most famous Instagram dogs are into wearing attire. I’m not that interested in fame.
I thought my human was going to be making us all kinds of biscuits since she retired. I have yet to see her take out a baking sheet. If she even knows where it is….
Well it looks like we have a balmy day today – up to -6C. Break out the swimsuits. Just joking. Everybody knows I hate to swim.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
