Our snow here has been melting over the last few days. I'm glad I didn't have to travel in bad weather but I got home just in time to see the dirty, half melted snow. It refreezes at night which leaves it crusty and lumpy. The border collies don't mind so much but the little ones have a hard time getting around on it.

Speaking of little ones, Trip is doing well. He loves to play-he thinks all toys are great. He's already starting to tug and fetch. He would like to play with the other dogs but so far they are not too interested. Lyric especially does not like when he pulls her tail. I think he will definitely need a home that is going to be very active and experienced with herding breeds. But he did sleep through the night!

This morning was quite frosty and I took this picture of Moses overlooking "his domain."
This photo is from this morning as well, but doesn't really show any frost.

I neglected to mention that Monday was Zodiac's "birthday." He's 9, which we can hardly believe but the gray in his face will testify that it's true. I need to pick up a cake this week so we can have a little dog party!

Happy Birthday Zodiac, in the pictures the snow looks gorgeous! That has to be hard for the littler ones to get around in though!

Will Trip be coming to Lawrence?

Happy Birthday Zodiac! Since Monday was your birthday, I got your horoscope:
Plenty of opportunities to learn and to make contact this year bring you closer to others and keep you mentally stimulated and growth-oriented. Work is solid and brings slow but steady rewards. Major restructuring of your life will help you to clear your head and to get your priorities straight.

You are inspired, flexible, and able to bounce back quickly from any setback. Your imagination is wild, your expectations sometimes unrealistic, and your compassion boundless. There is certainly an artistic streak in you, and whether or not you can turn this into a career, you do see the world through an artist's eyes. You are a true giver, but should be careful not to take on more than you can handle--and this is true not only in career and day-to-day life, but in your interpersonal relationships as well.
