It feels like Spring!!

We finally had a day of sunshine! After weeks of cold and rain and overcast days, it was 50 degrees today!
See dis? Dis is the LAST of our snow! Yep, it's all gone. Even dis pile has melted away since mom took the picture earlier today. And tomorrow is supposed to be 60 degrees!!! Smell ya later, winter!!!

Sunny days are good fur running outside.

And good fur posing fur mom and the camera.
(Mom says the camera loves me. Well of course it does! I mean, why wouldn't it..?)

Sunny days are good fur checkin' the treetops fur enemy squirrels...

And good fur lookin' cute by the woodpile.

**excuse mom while she "squees..."**

In other news, I've been tagged by my good furiend Olive. So I'm supposed to show the 10th photo in my file and tell you about it...

Well folks, I'm stunned and disappointed to report that the 10th photo is none other than a squirrel. Not just any squirrel, but Gigantor! If you missed it, you can read about him here.

Well, that's all fur now. Hope everyone is enjoying nice weather. I also hope no one was traumatized by the above photo. It's a reminder to all dogs that the War on Squirrels is serious business. Bark on, my brothers and sisters. Bark on.

Isn't the sun the best drug you could ask for when it reappears in march? We hit 60 today and everyone was in shorts. :)

Hi Cloud!!! Yay you are back!!! I'm with Max Dog you have emerged from hibernation!!! Your Mom is 100% right the camera does love you. Madi said to tell you she likes the lovely shade of tan markings just under your ears...very distinguishing!!! We are so glad you can get out and enjoy the sun and run and romp.

yep. i tried dead snake once. with pretty good result. BUT, have you ever tried on dead skunk? now, this you want to be careful with.
it's so potent, the ladies can smell me from miles away and totally go insane from your macho-ness. i tried on me mom once and she just took one smell and started screaming. i assume she went nuts from me sexy smell.

Glorious day here today, Cloud. We got a really nice and long walk with Mom. Phantom went first with Mom and Ciara, then she came back and took Thunder and Ciara - that little one is exhausted:) That is a good thing too.

Great photos of you - Mom is squeeing too.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Hmmm, why is your mom taking pictures of squirrels? Maybe they sneak the camera out while she is asleep!!

We is so happy that it looks like winter is gone up here but momma said that it might come back 'cause we live so far north...sigh.

Hi Cloud,

We had some warm sunshine a few days ago too. But now it is snowing again and we are sad. Spring is so close, yet so far away.

Hi Cloud,

I'm a little late but I just wanted to say those are Most Handsome pictures of you. I think rat terrierists are just natural-born supermodels! Although I thinks I might have nightmares tonite after seeing that Most Hideous and Gigantic Squirrel!
