More Snow!

This has been one heck of a week! The snow storm has slowed things down to a crawl (well more like a gimpy shuffle now) and I have to say that it has been an eye opener! I have weathered many storms before and been through a lot at the hospital where I work but this time I took the time to look around and take it all in and what I saw was the depths of human goodness!  I have seen doctors, nurses, and even my pharmacy director among other staff sleeping in the hospital multiple days and working extra shifts so that the hospital could run and our patients would get the care they need while some were stuck at home!  I have seen random strangers helping each-other dig stuck cars out of snow drifts and neighbors helping neighbors shovel sidewalks and driveways I have seen people playing and laughing and remembering to slow down and enjoy the beauty that life can bring! I guess I have to admit it is refreshing to see in todays world!

I have told you all before that Duncan loves playing in the snow and here is the kicker.... a couple of the pictures of Duncan from my last post made it onto the local news!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember this one!


 They posted both of them!
Duncan is my little mini celebrity and they showed his picture on the news at 12pm, 5pm, and 10pm!!!!!    My mom called excited and so did my mother-in -law! I was one proud puppy momma!!!!!!

We have had a blast going out and playing in the snow!

We are expected to get more snow this weekend..... guess we better get used to the fun!

*Disclaimer.... Duncan is WAY overdue for a trip to the groomer and although we usually make a trip to my home town to the groomer, this time he has an appointment with a new lady here in town we go tommrow and YIKES its scary going to someone new.... hope it turns out well!   WE SHALL SEE!


  1. So Duncan is a star.....well done! Hey, with that kind of weather, Duncan can use all the fur he's got.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  2. First, CONGRATULATIONS TO DUNCAN for being a celebrity!! And congratulations to you for taking winning photos :) How much fun is that!!!!!

    I agree with you about the kidness of people, and noticing it when things are "tough". Last year Smalltown, VA had quite a large snow storm, and it seemed like everyone became 20x more kind and generous. I wonder what life would be like if it snowed every day?

    Can't wait to see Duncan's new "do"!

  3. I would swear that I was looking at myself...I stand up on the snow banks just like that and I sniff that snow looking for a place to do my business. New groomers are scary...good luck and remember that hair grows back if they make a mistake:)
