Alvin’s first snowfall with me …..

This story of Alvin and the snow …. well it begins late late last night……

Me and Alvin do not sleep through the night.  My excuse is my bladder is over half a century old, and well his excuse, I really don’t know.  Because dogs cannot talk.  Oh, somedays I really wished that he could speak, I mean really talk.  Hold a conversation.   So one of us or sometimes both of us gets up during the wee hours of the morning or really late at night.   Sure wished that he could be trained to use the toilet. Wouldn’t that be great ….. on a cold snowy winter morning.  Anyway, he woke up at 2:00 a.m. and it was raining at that time.  When we got up at 6:00 there was SNOW covering the deck and the grass, it was everywhere.  EVERYWHERE.

I was kind of hoping that it would hold off until say Christmas Eve!   But I guess Mother Nature just could not wait.  I am hoping that she was just playing an early “cruel” Halloween trick on us, and that the sun will shine, and melt this white wet blanket. We can only HOPE and WISH.

The first time we went out Alvin was pretty quick about doing his “business” (I think that is such a funny way of saying, they peed or pooped, I mean honestly).  LOL    About mid morning he had to go outside so being the good Mom that I am, I grabbed my digital camera, and out we went.  He walked around a bit and then kind of went a bit “snow crazy”.  He ran, then he slipped on the deck (kerplunk), and off he went again.  Then he would do his bunny hop jump off the deck and tear back and forth across the grass.  At one point he jumped up into the flower/shrub bed (which by the way, he loves it up there).  He continued to do this for several minutes.  At the end of it all, guess what my “baby” did …… pooped in the snow on the deck.  I am not sure what he was thinking.  But Mama was not very pleased with the boy.  Thank goodness that it was in the snow.  Ooh.  I did manage to take some video of his romp around the backyard/deck so hopefully it turned out okay.  He was very fast and I could barely keep up with him.

The snow is very wet and heavy.  I shovelled the deck off and now have a nice little mound of snow on the grass area.  Hopefully Alvin won’t make the same mistake twice.  LOL.

Well that is my Alvin story for today.  I love the way he hops off the deck, honestly he looks like a black and white bunny rabbit.

Have a great day.


Always, Carol

P.S. Sir Alvin is resting comfortably on my comfy computer chair as I type this story on a backless stool.  I guess we all know who is the “leader of this pack” ….
