What weird weather we’re having! Yesterday hit 81 degrees, 10 degrees higher than predicted. It was great to open all
the windows and warm the house without the cost of using the furnace, but still, I’d like to enjoy spring weather without jumping straight into summer…..
Daisy just loved sitting in front of the open sliding glass door, watching the birds flit about, listening to them sing their spring welcome songs, and going into a barking frenzy whenever a squirrel flew by.
When DD got home from work, she took Daisy out for her first romp of the spring. Wow, did she ever enjoy that! It calmed her down for the rest of the evening. What a difference from last year when we first brought her home in May – she was afraid to go outside at all, and when we finally coaxed her out, she’d run 5 steps and stop, trying to eat everything in her path. Back then, the trimmed grass was actually taller than she was!
DD is planning to do this every evening until temps hit 90+ or it’s raining out. Which it’s supposed to do for the next two days, when the thermometer is supposed to drop back down 30 degrees – see what I mean about weird weather? Not slight fluctuations – MAJOR ones!
After Daisy’s run about the yard yesterday – she had so much fun that she was just a little Havachon blur – she happily panted away indoors, followed by the inevitable post-workout collapse! 🙂
