Update from the Frozen Wasteland!

 OMD, guys! Sorry I haven't posted all week, but you wouldn't believes how kerazy it's been down here! You may have heard from the news guys that Texas has had some really nasty weather. At furst, it wasn't so bad. Momma and I were sad that our Best Guy couldn't drive down to see us for Valentine's Day, but were were enjoying the novelty of snow and cuddling all cozy inside.

But then stuff started getting kinda skeery. Lots of people we knew were losing power and water and phone service. We found out that Auntie lost power on Saturday night, and she still didn't have it by Monday night. It was getting skeery cold for her and all her pups. They were having to go all sit in the car just to warm up. So Momma and I talked her into coming to stay with us. They came over late Monday night, and all of a sudden my house was flooded with dogs!

I'll tell you, furiends, it was pretty exhausting. They were sitting on MY momma's lap!!!! I couldn't even fit. Most of the cousins are smaller than me, so they were all squeezing on. I had to eke out what cuddles I could, and I was getting pretty tired of the whole thing.

But then Cousin Benny -- the only one bigger than me! -- and I discovered a mutual love of TOYS. We started playing fetch and tug and keep-away. It was so different playing with a DOG than a human. It made the visit so much fun!!

Momma and Auntie did boring stuff like play board games or cards and watch TV. And play with us, of course! Auntie checked yesterday, and she had power back at her house and no burst pipes! They stayed with us one more night to be safe, because it was another hard freeze last night, and then they were home today. It's night to have Momma and the couch back to myself, but it's really quiet too.....


Maybe the cousins can visit again soon!

    Oh yes, Tildy, there are many pros to having visitors... but is always lovely to have the home back to oneself. At least now you know that it is fun and can look forward to a furmily gathering again before too long! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
