Early Spring? I think not!
It's going to have to get pretty darn warm to melt all of this stuff (plus the nice layer of ice that coated everything this morning).
The sad part is that it's not even "useable" snow anymore. It's now dirty and crusty, which is uncomfortable for dog paws and human feet alike. I wish there was a magic RESET button that I could press to get a batch of fresh snow for Marge to run around in. I'd prefer 2 or 3 inches instead of 23 this time, though.
I haven't done a darn thing with Marge this week. We've gone on a few walks around the block and that's about it. There's literally no where to walk!
She did accompany me to the non-competitive agility class which I've begun teaching again on Monday. She played with the other instructor's dog, a male Standard Poodle. She snarked him a few times more than I would have preferred, but he seemed to have great manners and read her well, and she did offer him a couple of play bows and zoomed through tunnels with him. I anticipate that with more play sessions, she'll continue to get more comfortable with him.
I've just gone back to school for the semester and am trying to prepare myself for a wicked semester of Anatomy and Physiology. I'm taking only two classes, but that's in addition to my lab research (yes, pigeons!), which is proving to be extremely time intensive. I'm still at my counseling internship, but, quite honestly, am no longer enjoying it and looking to leave soon. I'm going to be starting volunteer work at a physical therapist's office as well. On top of that, I really need to start studying for the GRE, which I'm planning on taking in a matter of months. As such, blog updates and visits are going to be all over the place for a while until I settle into my new routine.
