My torch is all ready to start making beads, but I have to wait until Chunk goes to sleep before I dare start working. He and Suka have to be closely supervised. Suka likes to swat at them with those big paws, which makes Chunk mad, and Suka also likes to grab their tails, which makes Chunk mad.

We’re in a snowstorm here, with a cold snap moving in. They’re forecasting -10° tomorrow morning. I’m not even going to try to get the tractor started to plow the driveway. I called a guy who does snowplowing to come out tomorrow or Monday. Here’s what it’s looking like right now.

Suka jumped off the deck and couldn’t get back up, and the snow was too deep for him to go around, so I had to get down and my hands and knees and pull him up. BRRRRRRR!

We’re still in the ‘Oh, how cute!’ stage with Suka.Yesterday he was taking a nap with me, laying on his back, spreadeagled. Would have made a cute photo.

Now if I tried sleeping like this, I would wake up with such a stiff neck!

It was COLD here this a.m., -1°. This poor woodpecker was all fluffed up trying to stay warm.

I’ve got a pretty cactus blooming,

And Suka playing in the ferret’s snow box,

And total relaxation, legs dangling,

And one more of the little diva, Pip, who’s been keeping me awake at night, growling at Suka,

Oh, now that was funny!! Chunk, the ferret, got tired of Suka trying to play with him, so he hissed at Suka and chased him. Yup, Suka can move pretty fast when he needs to.

I forgot that puppies are like babies, eating, sleeping, peeing and pooping machines.

But with a face like this, can I regret getting him? NO WAY!

Well, Suka certainly enjoys the snow!
