I’m pretty sure this little shit head is planning his next escape. I was in floods of tears searching for him today after he went missing for 3 hours.
Today I learned two things.
1. Electric fences are not fool proof.
2. Dogs should always wear some form of identification. Because see #1.
I really truly believed I had lost him forever today.
A man a few streets away found him on his doorstep and brought him inside. Then he brought Winston down to the vet to see if he is micro-chipped. He’s not. Then he called Animal Control in Greenwich who thankfully had our contact details after we had called earlier. Both John and I had been driving around separately looking for the little stinker while all this was happening.
So now Winston is wearing his old collar with all his ID tags and John has added our phone number to his electric collar. I’m also calling the electric collar people to get a smaller size collar.
Oh, and also also also I found out about this brilliant company. I’ve bookmarked it. Just in case.
Winston Looks Suave
Ever since the "Winston Goes Bald in the Middle of Winter Incident of 2012" I have only sent him to the groomer once.
When I saw a brand new groomer opened nearby I couldn’t wait to send Winston in for a major clean up.
Look how handsome he looks! I especially love that the groomer took Before and After pics and posted them on her Facebook page. Oh, and the polka dot neck tie? LOVE IT.
This rascal has lost 5lbs in less than a month. Which is a lot when you only weigh 21lbs to begin with. The vet has run a battery of tests. Hopefully we’ll figure it out soon.
Dress + pants must be Charlotte’s thing.
Also also, shoes are on the wrong feet.
Also also also, Winston the photo-bombing dog!
Let’s talk about the snow. It started on Friday and OH MY GOD so much fun was had. Greenwich wasn’t hit very hard compared to the rest of Connecticut. I think we ended up with the perfect amount of snow.
It started snowing at 7am and shortly after John arrived home from Boston at 10am we got out and started to play. I was intent on building an upside down snowman so I dedicated a solid 40 minutes or so to that task.
Then we joined the neighbors in sledding. SLEDDING IS SO MUCH FUN!! We dragged Charlotte around the yard, around the cul de sac and down the ‘the big hill’. I really don’t know who had more fun - me or Charlotte.
There wasn’t that much snow on Friday but it didn’t stop John from getting the snow blower out of the garage and taking it for a spin down the street! The snow blower definitely came in handy the next day when John was able to clear our driveway and both our neighbours’ driveways.
It didn’t stop snowing until sometime early on Saturday morning. We woke up to 16 inches of it.
Winston and Charlotte both had a great time.
Alex missed out on most of the fun but I bundled her up on Saturday afternoon and gave her some fresh air.
