Our lite and fluffy snowfall continues and we have about six inches on the ground now. I have been busy with my snow shovel keeping my pathways clear and especially around the bird feeders where those feathery little guys are keeping me on the run to keep the feeders stocked up.

|SNOWING HEAVY AT TIMES TODAY|
I put the portable steel step-up thing in place to help Pheebs into the Jeep but she was hesitant about using it so Kelly and I helped her into the Jeep. She laid down in the back seat and stayed there.
| WE EVEN HAD A CROW DROP IN FOR SOME SNACKS TODAY|
| PHEEBS WAS THE A BACK SEAT DRIVER THIS MORNING|
| SNOWY ROADS THIS MORNING|
We took a short drive down Bayfield River Road, snapped a few pics and we were home again in about twenty minutes. Pheebs was again hesitant about jumping down to the step so I managed to coax her into the front passenger seat where I was able to reach in and lift her down. Although she has not shown any signs of feeling pain we think she hurt herself Thursday when she fell on the ice and then again getting into and out of the Jeep. She's a bit wobbly when she walks and that again makes us think she may have a sore hind leg.
| I THINK THE FELLOW ON THE LEFT IS SCRATCHING AN ITCH|
She has turned her nose up at her dog food but gobbles up roast beef, chicken, cheese, or hamburger leftovers from supper. She's happy, alert, and wags her tail a lot. She can walk alright but is slow coming up steps. When the UPS truck pulled up out front this afternoon and knowing the driver always has a treat for her, she was out of the house like a rocket and down the driveway she went. I do think she was feeling better today than Thursday.
|SO MUCH SNOW IN THE AIR THIS MORNING WE COULD HARDLY SEE THE WINDMILL DOWN THE ROAD|
| SOME LADIES IN OUR PARK OUT FOR A SNOWY MORNING WALK|
I think we will suspend our morning Jeep rides for a while to see if she heals and gets her normal mobility back. Not much else new today so I will leave you with a smash of this morning's snowy photos..............
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?" "Sixteen," the boy responded. His cousin was amazed that he knew the answer so quickly. "How do you know that?" "Easy," the little boy said. "All you have to do is add it up, like the Preacher said: 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer."

WIFE: "There's trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor."
HUSBAND: "Water in the carburetor? That's ridiculous."
WIFE: "I tell you the car has water in the carburetor."
HUSBAND: "You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it out. Where's the car?"
WIFE: "In the swimming pool."
No car rides for a while sounds like a good idea for Pheebs, hoping with you that resolves the problem-NickReplyDelete
If Pheebs continues to have trouble getting in and out of the Jeep put a piece of plywood on the step so you can't see through it. Our last Border Collie wouldn't go up any steps she could see through. When her hips were failing we got a ramp for her to get into the trailer. Hope it is just from her fall and she recovers quickly.ReplyDelete
Beautiful snow photos. And yes, sounds like Pheebs is feeling her age. I too hope it is just a result of recent injury....she is such a great looking dog. Sweetest face ever.ReplyDelete
Hope a few days off from getting in an out of the Jeep helps. Poor girl.ReplyDelete
Keeping good thoughts that Miss Pheebs will be feeling better with each new day.ReplyDelete
A Winter Wonderland, great pictures as usual. I hope Pheebs gets to feeling better. Gord.ReplyDelete
Good to hear her sprinting to the UPS man and that she likes your leftovers over her kibble. Probably bruised a little bit from the fall on the ice just like we would be. I hope she starts feeling better. Walter is the same way with the mailman. He will text me before he passes by to see if a visit is possible. Now Walter looks out the lower living room windows for him.ReplyDelete
