I took the dogs out for another snowshoe and got a few pics and
|Artsy fencepost photo. And a reminder to cut brush along the fence line in a month. lolz|
We have my father in law's dog every winter while they go away. She (border collie) and Sophie get along really well. Sophie follows her everywhere and they love sniffing all the animal tracks in the back field.
We don't have a ton of nice trees on the property - most are scrubby willow and a few maple and some pines - so I've been guarding this little oak tree for years. It was just a stick with a leaf or two when I first found it and now it is about 4ft tall. I will not likely live here long enough to see it become a huge tree, but it is cute nonetheless.
As we kept wandering back to the little grove of maple trees, I tried to get a few cute pics of Sophie, but she is not the most photogenic dog out there. Her goofy face makes me smile tho...
Fred has become the watcher of the herd since Spencer left. It is pretty cute. He will come toward the fence with his head down and then when you call his name, he perks up and looks all cute.
This green blanket is toast - the neck part has ripped apart from the shoulder and I don't think it can be fixed. It is holding up to get Fred through this cold snap and then it will be retired.
I spent the rest of my day off with a hot cup of coffee, a good book and several cats on my lap. It was nice to have an extra long weekend to relax and dream about spring plans!

|She knows my name? Maybe she has fud? Fred, probably.|
