Can we please...

KEEP this weather we've had today for forever?!

76*F...in FEBRUARY in New Jersey! That is just crazy, but just the kinda of crazy I want to keep around! BOL

Remember this 'last of the snow' pile I shared yesterday?

Yup, this snow pile.

Well..this is all that's left of that same snow pile about 24 hours later.

Just the tiniest, itty-bitty, wee-little bit left!

As soon as Mom got home from work today outside we all went to enjoy the weather...and then the greatest thing happened.

Mom looked at me and said something I haven't heard all winter long:

"Wesley, you wanna go for a walk?"

Sweeter words were never said!

OF COURSE!

So Mom suited me up in my harness...and down the driveway we started.


...annnnd only got about halfway down before Mom had to stop us to take a picture because 'Wesley it is SO GORGEOUS out today!'

There wasn't much to see on the walk...spring hadn't officially arrived yet so everything was still dull and brown and dead (but not really dead) looking. Mom was excited to see that some water fowl had already started to return. One set of canada geese and not one but two pair of mallards were swimming around on the lake.

The mallards. Also, see the house with the blue shutters? That's where we live!

Even if there wasn't much to see, there was plenty Mom and I could hear. Red-winged Blackbirds were calling back and forth, and somewhere up there in the sky there were hawks calling out. Mom spent her walk focusing on the birds and sunshine and breeze...I spent it sniffing and...well...

What?! We haven't walked the lake all winter! I need to let all the other dogs around known I'M still around!

When we got back to the house Mom got Honey's favorite thing ever out and played with her in the yard. 

Mom says she feels bad that Honey never goes on walks with us...but she pulls like a tractor and Mom says she would like to keep her arms socketed into her shoulders. 


Overall...it had been the kind of day were Mom wishes she could just bottle it up and share it with everywhere here in Blogville. Just perfect!

We are really hoping for more days just like this...AND SOON!

A (photo-heavy!) Recap

Can't believe February is almost already gone. I mean, I know it's a short month and all but...wow! 

Since my mom has once again been super slack, here's a small recap of all the nothing stuff that has been happening in our little world-bubble.

SNOW.

We had a bit of a winter storm that happened overnight from the 8th to the 9th. 



We didn't get as much during this one as we did with last year's Winter Storm Jonas, but we did still get a good amount dumped on us.

There was enough that getting through un-pathed areas for me was a bit of a struggle....

Tongue out for extra oomph-power!

But much longer legged Honey had no issues at all. 

She is such a snow-dog!

After the tromping through the snow that day, there was even some hot chocolate for myself and Honey!
Yummy!

Because Valentine's day, Mom got myself and Honey each something new to play with.

I got a plushy, squeeky heart toy, and Honey got a Kong squeeky-crinkly football.

We both just loved our new toys...however mine did not last more then 6 hours.

NO.  It wasn't ME who did it.

HONEY is the destroyer around here! Mom turned her back to make some dinner, Honey stole my little heart toy and...well...the rest (and the toy itself) is history.

The good news is is that Honey LOVES her Kong toy...and she has NOT yet been able to kill it.

This is both a good and bad thing.

GOOD:  She loves it and it can keep her occupied for a long time.

BAD: Well...this is what happens for hours on end...

Before the destruction of my little red heart, Mom had made me take some photos with it, with the intent of using them for Valentine's day.



There were actually MANY photos of variousness that were taken with the intent of Valentine's Day...if I hadn't been 'paid' so well in tasty treats and praise I may feel a little more put-out about it! BOL

Valentine's Day came around, and to let my mom know just how much I do love her I made her something VERY special in the snow.

Those have been the not-so major highlights of February.

Mom, Honey and I are have all been excited and happy these past few days because the weather has been gorgeous and warm.

So gorgeous and warm, that nearly all the snow has already melted away.

This is pretty much all that's left (with the exception of a small section in the back-back yard that doesn't get much sun!) of the earlier snowstorm.

This is the snow pile at the top of the driveway from the plow. Or at least what's left of it!

And...well...that's been about it for February!

OH! Except for one more thing. As always the awesome people of Chewy sent us out an email to try something new...THAT review is on it's way.

I just have to get Mom into gear to POST it up....
