It doesn't help that I have a cold, either... because my motivation to get out IN the cold is greatly depleted by the coughing and sniffling and tiredness. It's been like that for both of us all weekend, so today I made us get out and run errands... and we took Tag to the dog park for some romping in the snow.
Even if you don't know Tag, if you've read this blog you know OF him... that he's my beautiful, wonderful blue merle rough collie and I love him. :) Little did I realize when I chose to bring home a collie that he would receive so much attention and admiration, but he surely does! Everywhere we go he gets looks and I can hear people saying "Is that a collie?" to each other... sometimes they ignorantly ask me if he's "part collie" because they associate his color with another breed of dog. I take those moments to educate people. NO, he's not an australian shepherd mix... (rolling my eyes...).
Today at the dog park Tag was upstaged by an even MORE amazing dog... a Puli. I couldn't be mad... Pulis are truly magnificent in their weirdness and this one was no exception. I could only smile and nod at the dog's owner and tell him what a beautiful, unusual dog he has.
After getting out with Tag and running by the store for more medicine, home we came and have spent the rest of the day napping... and that brings me to the things I like about January. Aside from the warm snuggle time with Noah and Tag (who was codependent the rest of the afternoon himself because he had his flea and tick medicine applied after we got home... poor puppy), these are the things I like about January.
