This is Max.
His parents and siblings are vacationing in Orlando, land of abundant sunshine, breathtaking landscapes and parades on the half-hour.
This is Howie, Max's brother.
Clearly, they have been on Facebook and seen the pictures of everyone having fun with Goofy and Pluto in Paradise.
I have watched these critters conferring on the best way to take revenge on being left at home. Our carpet was mentioned twice.
It is my firm belief that all dogs need jobs. In that an ice storm is predicted for later this afternoon, I'm thinking sled-pulling is just the ticket.
(At the moment, it is 27 degrees and gray. I am trying to embrace the season and not be so crabby about winter. It doesn't seem to be working.)
