18/Jan/19 look, I'm trying to be good, let me sleep


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Occasionally the Big Guy and Tonya will rearrange the furniture in the living room.  When they do, some times, it gives me better access to the window.  Now, I have to get up on the couch to see out the window.

If you think that I am not going to look out the window...  think again...  I'm big enough to make up my own mind and looking out the window is what I want to do.

So the Big Guy put the garbage out last night.  So that doesn't have to be done this morning.  Normally the garbage routine calls for the Big Guy bringing it to the curb.  Well I so want to help him.  I will run in front of him, hoping he will open the door for me to escape.

Like that is ever going to happen.

He will shoo me away from the door.  Then he will open it.  I think if I were to try to escape, he would grab my collar.  My escape would be short lived.

Tonya wants to move this space heater to the living room.  So far, it's still sitting in the computer room.  When they get home from work, normally it's only a few hours that they are up and then they go to bed.  Tonya feels that turning up the heat, is sort of a waste of oil.  Only to heat up the house and then go to bed, for the house to cool off again.

The Big Guy agrees with her.  But of course there is stuff stacked up on top of the space heater.

The Big Guy bought this parabolic heater.  It worked great.  Until it failed.  But at $60.00, the Big Guy doesn't want to invest in another.  At least not for now.

17/Jan/19 thou shall not pass


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

There is only a small sliver of the sun that's coming up over the horizon.



The Big Guy would like there to be MORE sun.  Less snow.

I think he is going to get his wish granted on Monday.  They are forecasting for +9 with about 35 mm of rain.  That's just shy of 2 inches of rain.  With the ground being frozen, the rain is not going to have a lot of places to go.  So it's very likely to make a mess of everything.

Then, of course, because we still live in Canada.  It's going to freeze.  What a big mess that's going to make.

The Big Guy is off work today.  Not sure what he's going to be cooking.  But I bet it's going to have onions in it and that means, none of it can be shared with me.

What is his problem with onions?  It seems that everything he cooks, it either has onions or it has garlic.

Something that he hasn't made in a while now, is my home made dog biscuits.  He is slacking!

16/Jan/19 all hail the tote of kibble


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Actually I was not praying to the tote of kibble, I was stretching prior to going outside.  I just woke up and went over to the Big Guy and stood next to him and flicked his arm in the air with my mussel.  At least he's smart enough to know, I wanted outside.

Last night, as the Big Guy was taking me for my walk, he slipped in the driveway.  Now, he didn't fall, but of course, like any adult human, when they slip, it's not graceful at all.

Since I'm so close to the ground, it doesn't seem to matter too much when I fall, I'm pretty much there already.

I try to extend my nails and try to dig into the ice.  It does leave scratch marks on the ice, but other wise, it's quite futile.  I fall most of the times.  I just don't care.  I get back up and keep sniffing again.

The weather people just can't make up their minds.

Yesterday, some of them were forecasting for 10 cm of snow.  Even on the radio, they were forecasting for up to 15 cm of snow.  

Then...

No snow fell.

The storm shifted South and it missed us completely.

The Big Guy only smiled his smile.

15/Jan/19 time to run over to the other window


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

I get really upset when I see another dog outside.  I bark and bark to let them know that I live here.

Then, if anyone comes to the door.  Doesn't matter if it's the front or back door.  I will dash to the door to investigate.  Is it friend or foe.  I just NEED to know.

Then there is the barking.  I know that once someone is at the door, it's time to raise the alarm.  So I bark and bark.  As loud as I possibly can.

The folks at the weather network can't seem to make up their minds.  They say that were getting some snow in their video, but then in the forecast, just a light dusting.  Either way, the Big Guy is prepared.  He's got his jerry can filled with gas.  Tonya did that for him last week.  So he has got a lot of gas for his snow blower.

So far, the snow isn't too bad.  Of course it isn't melting as fast as what the Big Guy would like.  

Tonya was commenting on some snow storms that were happening in the United States.  Places that she didn't think they got a lot of snow, are getting 15 and 20 cm of snow.  Places like Tennessee and Kentucky.  You never hear about them on the news getting any snow.  But since it's happening, I guess they do get snow.

Are any of my readers out there, getting snow, that they would normally never get?  Please leave a comment below if you are.
