|Look at those faces!|
This past winter was a really warm one for North Carolina. I live in the Piedmont, just west of the middle of the state. Our area doesn't normally get much snow, usually maybe 2-3 good ones in the winter. And "a good snow" in this area is usually about 6 inches. But, this past winter we only had one snow that didn't amount to much of anything. Thanks to the warmer winter, and now a warmer than normal spring, our dogs' inner temperature gauge seems to think it's already summer. Oh fucking joy.
The best thing to do is take the dogs outside everyday and just brush the hell outta them. Just get as much fur as you can off of them while we're outside to try and minimize the fur tumbleweeds that congregate inside. After we got home from work today, Jason and I immediately headed outside to do just that. Here are a some shots of our nightmare:
|Hey, at least the birds can use the fur for their nests.|
|Ryoku gets his belly brushed|
|Ryoku has decided he's had enough|
|Okami, just hanging out, waiting for his brushing|
To borrow a line from my best friend, Melissa, "Immakillmyself." Sigh.
