SNOWS!!

We finally got some snows, although we did not get a lot.  I think we got about 10 snows, but it was still fun to walk in and see your feets prints.  The tall guy was a bit unhappy when I started running, because he said he really did not feel like falling down and breaking his neck, so I had to slow down because I did not want him to fall down and break anything, because he gets really really grumpy when he breaks things.

It was rainy and cold yesterday.  Last night, we had a commotion.  There were a bunch of police cars and fire cars with all their lights and sirens behind the house.  I don't even mind when the sirens come because that's just how I roll.

Anyway, it seems that someone missed the curve in the road behind our house last night and ran off the road and then, when all the polices came, they could not find the person who had been driving the car.  (The only reason I know all of this is that the tall guy was nosy and asked the polices behind the house what was going on.)  So, if you see anyone looking for their car, please tell them that the polices have it and they would most certainly like to have a talk with them!

    1. Keeping a dog mentally stimulated is important. If we don’t pay enough attention to our dogs’ minds, they often become bored or start misbehaving, and their mental health can quickly deteriorate. To avoid these problems, here are 5 quick tips to challenge your dog’s brainpower and turn him into a genius!

      1) Go off the Beaten Path

      Yes, literally, walk your dog on new routes every once in a while. If you take your dog on walks using the same path each and every day, he’s missing opportunities to come across anything new. But don’t limit this philosophy to walks; expand it to all areas of your dog’s life. Teach your dog a new skill, let him sniff new places, or try taking part in a doggy sport. Keep your dog’s environment full of new and exciting things, and offer him plenty of opportunities to use his brain.

      2) Hide Your Dog’s Toys

      Dogs can be quite determined when it comes to getting the things they want, so why not use this to put their brains to work? If your dog wants a toy, try placing it under a laundry basket or hiding it under a blanket (making sure he sees you put it there). Then, sit back and watch him use his problem-solving skills to try and get it. When he solves the puzzle, praise him just as he reaches for the toy.

      If your dog struggles or gets frustrated, make the exercise easier at first, and then gradually make it harder and harder over time.

      3) Increase Your Dog’s Vocabulary

      Dogs are always ready to learn new words, so why not take the time to expand your dog’s vocabulary? For example, you could start saying “let’s go potty” just before opening the door to let your dog out. After doing this often enough, your dog should come running over to be let out whenever you say “let’s go potty.” Dogs are pretty fast to learn to associate a particular action with a word, and are quick to anticipate what will happen next, so you will usually see results very quickly.

      4) Never Stop Training

      Don’t stop training your dog when he reaches his golden years. “If you don’t use it, you lose it” especially applies to senior dogs. Yes, old dogs can learn new tricks, the only thing is, they may take just a little bit longer to learn them, but be patient and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. So don’t let that brain go to rust, a dog’s brain never loses its ability to learn new things so long as you give it the chance.

      5) Brain Training for Dogs

      The brain is like a muscle – if you don’t challenge it, it won’t grow! That’s why the best way to make your dog smarter is by teaching him special “brain games” and “brain exercises.” Brain games are fun little games you can play with your dog to teach him new skills and increase his intelligence. Here’s a great “Brain Training for Dogs” course containing 21 awesome brain games, including treasure hunts, hide and seek, playing the piano, and much more, that will take you step-by-step as you turn your dog into a well-behaved and obedient genius!

    Jack, that's just the right amount of snow if you don't want to have to dig yourself out like the peoples on the East Coast! We agree - bet the car was stolen and the peoples who lost it will be really glad to get it back!
    Glad you didn't pull the Tall Guy over - you don't want him being grumpy - he might just forget where he put your biscuits!

  10. Dear Jack,

    Not quite enough snows to make a snow angel, but it still looks like fun! Tell the Tall Guy that my sister fell down 2 weeks ago on the snow covered ice, and she totally separated her left elbow, broke her right wrist, and sprained her left ankle, all at the same time. So, you can never be too careful in the snows!

    Sounds like exciting times in your neighborhood - maybe your house will appear on a future episode of "Cops" - I'll be watching for you in the background!

    Your friend,
    Nancy

  13. We don't have any snow here. But if we did, I would say the amount you got is about the amount we could handle. Anything more than that and they might need to call in the National Guard.
