Abbey and me have been taking advantage of the slightly warmer temps and have been getting out for our walks. Yesterday we made the full loop along the gopher trails. The snow is so hard now that Abbey can run on top in the fields but she hasn't spotted any bunnies yet.

Hi, Tony! Glad you got to get out, and then go visit a friend! Being cooped up makes winter seem longer than it is!

Looks like you're getting more snow! Take care!

My gosh, I'm glad to hear you're getting out, and that things are just a bit warmer for Alley (Hi, Alley!) We had sunshine this afternoon, and it got up to 50. It still was breezy and a little nippy on the water, but it was so good to see the sun no one especially cared. Besides, after seeing your "warmer" temps, I believe I'll just be quiet. ;)

The mallards are starting to act like spring, though. The males are fussing and fighting with each other - just little beginning skirmishes, but there's no question they're getting geared up to impress the girls. ;)

Hi Tony, glad to see you and Abbey are getting out and about. Temps are still in the low 20s here during the day but we have been lucky to have 3 days of sunshine, next week we finally break the freezing mark and will warm up a bit. Can't wait for those 50s to finally make it here as our night time lows.

Hi Tony, we have warmed up to 44f today. Will see about getting Roxie out. Am so tired though. I didn't get out of bed until 11am this morning.
