Bringing up baby

Well...12" new inches of snow here at the fort at 7:00 a.m. this morning, and it's been coming down most of the day. This has made for some righteous cabin fever within the ranks of the quadruped members of the household. We have discovered that our new girl can yodel and make noises like some sort of demented dolphin when she wants attention. Since she spends part of these bad weather days in a large crate so she and our other female don't get into a fight, I've learned to give her what I call her baby bottle: a Kong stuffed with peanut butter. I've heard of this before but never dreamed what a great source of amusement it could be. Thank you, whoever thought this up.

I managed to get out to the PO yesterday (yes, we had more snow yesterday morning, as well) and found this beautiful tree next door to the post office, calling my name. Another of my examples of the many colors of winter, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Sounds like you have your hands full with the new baby. I put a big rubber ball in Shiney's corral and he will occasionally play with it. Mainly, the colt pesters his uncle Star.

I know you are so tired of the snow, but that's a great photograph of winter wonderland.

Jack is right, a winter wonderland is what that photo looks like. Beautiful. But...hope it clears soon so the "kids" can get outdoors. That Kong trick is a good idea.
