The Great Escape !

Mom decided to give Lassie & Benji's idea a try - she hunted through the cupboards until she found the electric kettle and boiled up some water.

Now comes the good part - bbbbaawwwhh  picture this - mom  half in and half out our doggie door... pouring hot water on the ice. (Dog oh Dog I wish I had thumbs so I could of held the flashy beast and took pictures of HER!) It took 4 kettle full of hot water but finally she was able to get the door open about 7" and escape.

YEAH my fellow furbies - Mom was getting THAT stir crazy!!! So for the first time in days she was able to squeeze herself outside - she was so happy she did a little dance on the ice on the deck.

We even managed to fill up the bird feeders - though why she insists on feeding those bird brains is beyond me! Really - we don't know what all the fuss is about - we have been able to go in and out with no problems. The other good news is we have clear blue skies and 53 today and it is supposed to be in the high 60's over the weekend and 73 on Tuesday - woo hoo! Maybe the ice will melt enough for Mom to be able to get MY car out of the garage and take ME to the park!


  1. Ma had to boil water to pour on her car doors when they froze shut!


  2. Wow great episode of Prison Break guys. Glad mum managed to get the door open with the hot water. Now for sun to melt the ice. We have some so we sill send you some of ours. The rain has stopped here hooray. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. YAY!!! That trick works well as long as the temps are on the way up and not down:) Your mom is such a good person - she even cares about the birds.

  15. Whatever it takes. Your mom was very brave. Of course mine is also obsessed with feeding the birds. What about ME? That's what I say.

    Enjoy the warmer weather. I'm counting the days until the tennis ball reappears.


  16. Glad your mom was able to get out a little. That was a great idea!

  17. Howdy Mates, blimey we just cannot imagine what life is like with that much snow and ice! We wish you could have taken a photo too! Take care all. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory

    Hope all that white stuff is gone now!

    Though I wouldn't like to be trapped.
