Brrrrrrrr! It-t-t-t is too-oo-ooth ch-ch-chattering c-c-c-cold outside!
I’m a Southerner y’all, I don’t have the chops to endure this kind of weather. I went to the grocery store today and kept my gloves on the entire time I was shopping. It’s hard to feel for fresh fruit with fleece gloves on, but I managed.
It’s so cold in fact, that even Nigel was willing to cuddle with Natalie. He’ll snuggle with humans all day long, but he does not like other beasts to enter his personal space. But with temperatures in the teens, and a blanket to keep the cooties off of him, he allowed the new dog to warm his bones.
I’m sorry this is so blurry, but it’s such a sweet story. Natalie is such a “mom”. The whole time they laid on the couch together, Natalie constantly checked to ensure Nigel was doing okay. She’d sniff him and lick the top of his head.
Of course Nigel’s response to this kindness was to growl, but no one is perfect. I’ve been pretty moody lately too, so I can’t judge him too much.
I hope all of you are staying warm. My poor husband has to work overnight tomorrow in the frigid temperatures, I just hope he doesn’t get even sicker that he has already been. (That’s the nice way of saying I hope he doesn’t bring home any new illnesses to ME).
Let’s face it, there’s two beeyotches in this house – me…. and Nigel.
