It has been a long and boring week. The temperatures have been hovering in the 40's all week and mom hasn't felt like taking me out for walkies in the cold because her arth-e-ri-tus has been bothering her. We do go to the pet store every other day and I have a good wander and sniff around but it's not the same as a walk in the park. And then to make matters worse my dad gave me a bath today! I was just getting a nice doggie Au De Pong going too. Then of coarse mom wanted to take a photo of me with my nice clean fluffy coat. Here you can see me saying "no no no I will not look at the camera" then mom said "want to visit Franklin" and that sort of peaked my interest, then she said "want to go for a WALK" and you can see how closely I was listening to that!!! And we did go to visit Franklin and we did go for a walk - so I guess the bath wasn't so bad. Now I am hiding out with mom in her craft room because Dad is watching the foozeball and he yells at the TV when he watches foozeball. Oh - do you notice no snow!!! It all melted away the next day.
