It is really cold outside here today!!! My old buddy Arther--he does not like the cold much. He does not mind telling me about it loud and clearly either!!! And his friend Fibro, she voices her opinion a few octaves higher than he does, I have learned though that you have to make them your friends and not your enemies. It is no use fighting them, because they are stronger than you are and sometimes a lot smarter! So instead of working against them, you have to work with them. It isn't always easy, but I have found that it works better.
The weather is a crazy thing. It was around 70 degrees a few days ago, and it was near zero last night. Now, Monday it is supposed to be back around 50 degrees! I like the warmer temperatures much better! Then, I can take my little doggies out for a walk.
My old doggie, Roxey--Little Britches, died in December. She was a Miniature Pincher and 21-years-old. The poor old girl could not walk on her back left leg, as she was all crippled up with atheritis. She was that way when I got her. I had had her for over seven years. I loved my old lady very much. It broke my heart when she died. Just this last week, my younger son got me a little Yorkie. He is adorable. BUT, he has to be walked in order to go potty. That is a good excuse for me to get at least some walking in each day! I have to get out and take little 'Friday' (he came with the name!) so he can go potty! Hey, we have to take inspiration or motivation where we can! LOL
