Spud likes the snow, he even manages to look tidy in it.
Snow is more user friendly to a dog than mud. (Did I ever tell you about the time an neighbours Chow Chow dog, wallowed in the outfall from our septic tank, one hot summers afternoon? There is mud and there is mud, there are muddy dogs and there are muddy muddy smelly dogs.)
Snow is a new adventure for Jammy and Dodger the kitten- cats
But, at the end of the day, keeping snug and securing the lions share of the sofa is the priority.
‘Mum! The cats have got a mouse in the porch!’ Said the boys.
‘Well go and get it off them then’. said I.
No one volunteered.
Ever helpful, Spud the dog stuck his head out through the cat flap, from the kitchen into the porch, and stretched as far as he could, and a bit more besides. He plucked the now deceased rodent from off the door mat in the porch and brought it back through the cat flap into the kitchen and presented it to me.
‘Well thank you Spud, what a helpful doggy you are!’ Now what do I do with it?
