A short hiatus

Because of the weather and me being out of town for the holidays (and the dogs in a kennel or a babysitter's home), we haven't been out at the dog park much. SusieQ's little paws don't seem to take well to ice and snow, so I might not bring her along every time. If I do, I might have to hold her for a good deal of the time.
Good thing she weighs only about 16 pounds, at last weigh-in.

This is great and a viewing I highly recommend.

Temperatures going south

Update on previous post: It's about a month later and a lot colder. Here in mid-Michigan we've had a fairly warm fall, but winter is coming. However, as long as I play "A Charlie Brown Christmas on CD" I think I'll get through it.
Another thing: It gets dark so soon, and unless I take off from work early, which I can't always do, sunny weekdays at the dog park might be history for a few months. A full moon, a snow blanket and a full-stratus sky help in lightening things up. The dogs don't seem to mind, though. SusieQ can follow a bouncing tennis ball fairly well in the darkness.
