Last night I walked the dogs in a mixture of drizzle and sleet before heading to bed. I had to hit the sack early and didn’t even hear the late night news forecast. So imagine my surprise to wake up this morning and find about 2 inches of snow covering the ground! The weather that was so mild a pleasant just one week ago has turned back to bitter, blustery cold. The snow fell all night and stuck around for most of the day, especially in the shady spots. Temperatures in the 30’s and a howling wind kept me inside most of the day except for the three times that I took the dogs out for their walks.
While walking the dogs this morning I realized that every single house on my block – both sides of the street – have at least one fucking dog. The only exception to that is the neighbor on my left. She is a retired widower (a real bitch) who doesn’t like animals at all. She told me once that she does not believe that animals belong inside a house for any damned reason. Animals should be kept outside or in a barn.
We have a big representation of breeds in this neighborhood, everything from Chows to Yorkies. The Yorkie is directly across the street from my house and that little yapper comes over to my mailbox every day and pisses on it. One of these days I will have a surprise for that little furry piss machine!
