Winter is finally here. Ah, I love the cold weather! So bracing, energizing.
Snow becomes inconvenient, living in an apartment with dogs - every walk is a production, before and after. But the cold is great.
Snow makes me miss Gypsy. That dog loved winter. She had an amazingly thick double coat, like a wolf's, and she positively blossomed in the cold. Her black eyes would sparkle and her coat seemed to get even thicker and fluffier. Even when she was old and slowing down, when her paws would touch snow, she'd buck and prance around like a puppy.
