Well…we managed to make it to the first full weekend following the New Year. Don’t know about you but we received 6″ yesterday and bitter cold with our high temperature being just 9ºF. Sam is longing for summer. I’m with him.
Any special plans for the weekend beyond staying warm?
Live, love, bark! <3

I’m right there with you. Being dark at that hour is bad enough but frigid on top of it just seems cruel.

Pee S: Wee luv yur Winter header….
Thanks, Prince Siddhartha. I was inspired by our snow storm. Let’s hope the weather gets better for effury-one!
Oh we are with you! Snow and freezing rain all weekend! Below freezing temps and we barely got a walk in this a.m. with two of the three dogs. Sick and tired of it! Stay warm!
We have spent it trying to stay warm minus the snow. Cuddles and cocoa wishes for you 🙂
Back atcha, Marty! ☕️
Planning to stay dry! Expecting 12″ of rain this week.
I heard about that! Will you guys remember what rain looks like? Stay as safe and as dry as possible. ღ
Loooove the new wintery look of the blog! <3
Thanks! Coincides with the weather!
Even Bear, who is Mr. I have to get outside just to prove I can, knows better every time I open the door. It has to be downright freezing for my stubborn boy to abandon his need for “civil disobedience” (civil meaning not including fangs and claws). Do the dogs get stir crazy when you have to keep them in?
Oh gosh, do they ever. Sam becomes such a pest. I had to start taking them out to the dog run for just a couple minutes. Otherwise he’d pester me till I pulled my hair out!
we have snow here in DE. just a couple of inchs but still snowing.
lily has long thick fur. on her potty break she enjoyed frisking about in the snow. trying to towel her off was difficult cause she was doing her happy dance. lol
doing laundry, drinking hot tomato soup, and being thankful hubby has sunday and monday off.
Enjoy the coziness of a weekend with comfort food and companionship. I’m looking forward to more ‘normal’ temperatures (around the freezing mark). At least the sky is clear blue and the sun is reflecting off all the snow.
We want spring to hurry up too! we are -7 degrees right now
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
Humphrey suggests eating lots of hot Chicken Noodle Soup and staying cuddled underneath about fifty blankets!!! Stay warm! <3
Thanks, I think it’s gonna be a two-dog night in bed! 😉
We do have temps in the upper 20’s but all the snow and ice went above and below us. Six inches would shut our entire city down. Heck, 1″ shuts our city down. LOL!
Oh my heavens! That’s too funny but I guess to be expected when people aren’t familiar with snow. Stay warm and have a groovy weekend!
Unfortunately, it looks like a weekend of chilly heavy rain here…which has been the norm so far, so it will be football, fires and food for us!
Sounds good to us!
Do Sam and Elsa like to go out and play in the cold? Wilhelmina and Duffy really like it but they do have coats for extra warmth. Tomorrow we plan to go for a nice, long run in the forest. We haven’t been there all week because when we were last there the trails were really icy and difficult to negotiate for the Mom! Have a nice weekend! Love the pic of Sam gazing out the window 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
Not so much. They have taken wholeheartedly to the notion of domestication. One the plus side, potty breaks are quick without a lot of sniffing and dallying. 😇
Single digits tonight! I’ll have to bring in all of the squirrels to give them a warm place to sleep. I hope the cats won’t mind….
Stay warm and use the stuffies to keep you and the squirrels warm. I’ve heard Mitzi is kind of “hot.” 🤣
OMG, all of the little pink furred squirrelicorns I’d have to take care of….
18 degrees and two inches of snow here…but we simply can’t handle the snow in Philadelphia. A long history of spotty road cleaning and bad drivers. The weather forecasters try to get audiences by scaring the heck out of everyone on top of this. I’m with you and Sam. Love the picture. Hopeful for warmer days!
Sam certainly has the right idea. He looks so adorable looking out the window, almost blends in with the background. Here it is a balmy 32 degrees with threats (or is it promises) of snow tonight. Not much, just an inch or two. But enough to send everyone scurrying to the store to buy up all the bread, milk and water. Seriously. And schools would be closed if it weren’t Saturday. For real.
In places that don’t get loads of snow, there always such overkill on closures. It was the same in Eugene, OR where my daughter lives. Stay warm and enjoy loads of cinnamon tea! ❤︎
Bitterly cold here too, but no snow, just clear blue skies and freezing temps. Meant to get to -4C tonight, so around 24F which is really cold for us. Brrrrr. Stay warm and have a lovely weekend xx
Thanks, It was -10 with the windchill this morning but is now up to 26-a real heat wave! 😉 Best wishes for a cozy, warm weekend to you and yours. ❤︎
We enjoy the winter when there’s fresh fluffy snow on the ground and it’s at least 20 degrees out. Right now we’re barely above that, but it got into the low 40’s last week, rained, and ruined all of our fluffy snow! Now the yard is icy so ball play is limited. Oh, and we’re getting that frigid weather this weekend too, so it looks like we’ll be getting the tunnel out in the hallway again! 🙂
Have a blast running up and down the hallway. It’s been waaay too cold for walkies but we may go out for a quick romp this afternoon since it’s a clear sunny day and starting to warm up in the upper 20’s. Woot!
We are in the deep freeze here but at least the snow stopped.
Murphy & Stanley
Clear blue skies are definitely welcomed with sunshine today. Now if it will actually “warm” up. 🌞
We are right there with you, we are ready for warm weather! We hate this cold white stuff. Pretty to look at, but that’s about it!
I like to see it up in the mountains, not in my neighborhood! 😉
Awww…such a cute pic of Sam. I remember those frigid CO days. I’d follow my cats around the house as they sought out patches of sunlight to stay warm. Oh, and all that ice on the inside of the windows…fun!
This kind of cold weather sure has the potty breaks VERY focused! In/out lickety split. 😉
We’re getting a little bit of snow here today. Temps in the 20F’s. This is Tippy’s kind of weather, so we’ll probably go out for a nice walk later.
Oooh 20, a varietal heat wave. Break out the flip flops! 🙂
It’s frigid here too! No big plans, just grocery shopping, and watching the Lions probably lose this Saturday in the playoffs lol. Keep warm!
Best wishes on the playoff game, fingers crossed for you. Go 🦁!
If I want to be warm, I could just go outside (if only I could get out of this cage).
9 degrees as a high- you must mean Celsius, right?? 😬 And I’m complaining about high twenties last week. We’re supposed to get 7 to 10 inches of rain in some areas- we need it badly but there could be a lot of flooding. My Saturday chore may be to get some sandbags. Kloe is right there with Sam- she hates the rain that keeps her indoors. Stay warm and be safe if you must go out.
Don’t I wish?! This morning is was -2 (wind chill was -10) when I let the dogs out. 😉
I can’t click the “Like” button – that would just be wrong 🙂
Trying to stay warm here as well! I think our cold is breaking by the end of the weekend, though I am fearful of checking the forecast in case it has changed again!
We’re supposed to be back to 60 by Monday. Hate the idea of wishing my life away but…I wish it were Monday! -2 this morning (wind chill -10) this morning. Gah!!!!!
So nice! I am looking forward to the rain on Tuesday we have to look forward to here (I’m ignoring the ice that is coming before it). I’ll be thrilled to walk Choppy in it!
We’re getting a little stir-crazy around here due to the cold. Hoping for a good walk later today rather than just quick potty breaks. At least it’s sunny today. 🌞
We even got cold enough to change the constant rain to snow. And it accumulated to about a half inch. No big plans, maybe putting away the holiday decorations.
Sounds like a cozy weekend putting holiday decor away and relaxing with a warm cup of tea or coffee might be ahead for you. Enjoy!
Cold in PA as well but not as much snow! Sam is such a pretty dog! Love that he has his perch at the window!! 🙂 Have a wonderful day!
Thanks! He was watching the neighbors across the street shovel snow. He wasn’t thrilled to be out in it though for more than 20 seconds. Stay warm and cozy in the Keystone State. 🙂
me too… we have 21F and that’s like siberia for me :o)
If it were 21 here, we might have to break out some sandals. It was -2F with a wind chill of -10F this morning. If my math is correct the wind chill would around -23C! Brrrr. ⛄️ Hope your weekend is cozy and warm.
Any special plans for the weekend beyond staying warm? // Well, now that you mention it: staying cool would be pretty good- although having said that I hope, you, Sam the Comfort and Elsa the Ninja stay warm.
