Snowing On A Monday Morning

Could you believe that I took this picture last Saturday while walking with Walter?

Today, Monday, certainly looks completely different from last Saturday.  Does Walter look concern about it?  Not really.

snow4Years ago, I used to dread anytime the weatherman said we had snow coming.  On my defense, I’d like to point out that for the first 15 years of my life I lived mostly in a tropical climate, close to the beach, and snow was nothing more to me than some pretty pictures on a book.  Now, I actually appreciate every season of the year.  Why?  My girlfriend, Cynthia, and dogs have taught me to be appreciative of what each season brings to us.

snow6Walter, another perfect specimen, of what relaxation should look like.  I think the Greek philosopher, Diogenes, had the right idea.  He believed that happiness was achieved by returning to nature, and what better way to keep in touch with nature than living with dogs.

Walter is Back!

Walter came back on Monday to stay with us for a couple of days and although the day started very cloudy by late morning the sun was coming out and it turned out to be a wonderful day.  So, what did we do?  Ok. let me rephrase that, what did Cynthia do?  She decided to BBQ for us.

Cynthia marinated these stakes for two days, and they tasted so good.

I left the door open so we can all go in and out of the house.  No, they do not have leashes or collars, but my deck is on the second level and gated.  Alex was out before Walter made up his mind and made her company.

Walter stayed for a couple of minutes and then went back inside.  Dogs with long dark hair tend to get hot very easy, therefore be careful with your dog specially during summer.

This amazing meal was all thanks to Cynthia.  She is one amazing cook and I am lucky to have her as my partner.
