It started snowing last night & it is very, very cold. This is how it looked when I went out this morning. If you look real close, you can see my bridge...

Do you remember how I was whining about not having any real snow? You know, the kind that sticks to the frozen ground & stays until spring. So far, all our snow has disappeared the next day because it has been so warm that the ground did not freeze and the weather-confused plants were starting to send up their green stuff.

Anyway, after coming down all day, the snow was right up to my armpits for the afternoon walk but the Dog Mother was in no mood to take pictures. She said that her fingers were frozen & about to fall off!

I thought that it was just wonderful & had a great frolic through the white stuff -- and then I got dragged back in. Sigh...

Remember all that show we had?
Well, only a week later & Montreal has broken warm weather temps two days in a row! Here is how it looked as I crossed our bridge this morning.
It was like a spring day -- lots of mud & green things sticking out of the ground. This is very strange weather. Usually, we are frozen solid In January, You cannot even bury a bone in winter. I know this for a fact because on another side of the mountain, where they have the cemetery, there is an old building where they used to store the customers until Spring Thaw.

On our side of the mountain, things are more lively in winter. Skating, tobogganing & even a kiddie ski hill. There were no toboggans (like this one) out today & the ski hill didn’t have enough snow for winter sports, but there were lots of people, kids & dogs -- as usual on a sunny Sunday.

Here is a view of Beaver Lake (still frozen but with ice too thin for even a little dog such as myself to venture upon) & you can see the ski hill in the background.

The danger sign warns ’GLACE MINCE’ which means thin ice!

Beside the far end of Beaver Lake, there were lots of skaters on ice -- thanks to the new artificial ice-making equipment that the city spent all summer installing.Nearby, a pile of snow -- courtesy to the ice-making process -- and the only snow I saw today! I left my mark & headed for home...

...where my favourite doorman was ready with treats for me & my girlfriend Fala.


Squirrel Talk

There was so much snow on Boxing Day that we cleared some off a log so that I could leave some of my Christmas cookies for the squirrels because all their nuts were buried under a ton of snow.

PS - Don’t tell our kitty Maudite -- the squirrels like to tease her from the windowsills!

Welcoming 2007

New Year’s Eve & all the dogs were invited too. My love, Matilda, was playing it cool on her mom’s lap with Trouper the black Lab & Alfie the black Scottie nearby...what a little flirt she is.

Maybe I can show Matilda how much I love her by giving her mom Catherine some attention?

First, a little love nibble at her ear...

is that Issey Miyake that smells so...
