sub zero

We've had some cold weather lately. I think I mentioned it already, but I really don't like going out in the cold. Sometimes I've even been known to get all sucky and refuse to walk. Or lift my paw and try to look really sad and desperate so that I don't have to stay out too long.

Well, the other day, my mom bundled me up in a red parka to help keep me warm on my walks. I wasn't too sure about it at first. I felt a little embarassed and thought I resembled a sausage. I thought the other dogs would laugh.

Do I look fat in this?...

Ready to brace the cold....

I made it all the way down the front steps....

And then....hey! Wait a minute. Did mom get a picture of me sucking up already? Nooooo...that wouldn't be me picking up my paw would it? Trying to look pathetic and mooch a ride in my dad's coat?? Oh no....here it comes....a close up!!!!

eclipse excitement

Last night my mom and dad decided to put on their coats and boots and go out into the cold night around 10:30pm. It was very unusual. Now, normally I don't go into the cold - especially so close to my bed time - but I followed them out into the front yard where we stopped and looked at the sky. There was a lunar eclipse! I got to see the moon being shadowed by the earth and I think I even saw Saturn and Orion.

Mom's friend Colette got some good pics of it:

Thanks for sharing so that I could blog about it, Colette!

I was so excited (or maybe it was confused/stressed about going out in the cold so late) that I puked on my mom's rug when I got back in the house. But don't worry about me. It was just a few pieces of kibble and I ate them before the humans had to pick them up.
