Who's Cold?

>> Wednesday, March 30, 2011

In spite of the fact that I'm ready for spring, one thing I never least for very cold! I can honestly tell you that a three-dog-night (or day) is as good as warm sunshine when it comes to thwarting off the March chill. This photo was taken right after I got home from a long morning of riding. Of course, Tango's body heat keeps me warm when I'm on his back but afterwards when I'm untacking, well, it's cold!!! Three dogs are better than hot tea. They're better than a glass of wine. They might even be better than a hot bath tub! And as I half-sit half-lay on the couch, having the three dogs as close to me as they can get is a great way to drift off while I'm remembering the thrill of my morning ride.

Who could ask for more? Not me!

A lap warmer, a leg warmer and a foot warmer! Perfect. Well, maybe you need a neck warmer too. Kelly likes to wrap around my neck on the back of the couch!

I'm really back riding full steam, again. In fact, I have some videos that I'll share. My SIL pointed out that they're a bit blurry,(and they are) but it's the content that counts! I'll show you soon.

Love how you describe what it means/feels like having pups at your side. I cannot imagine not having a pup around.
Oh, and CONGRATS(!) on the new bipedal member of the family (well, 'bipedal' sooner than anyone thinks... as I'm sure you know, it flies by so fast).

Three gorgeous pups surrounding you, what could be better? :-> They look so cuddly warm! Nice post!

That is so great you ride horses! I just love horses and it has been too many years since I have been able to ride a horse. Very cool!

p.s. I never was afraid of the bobcat. I think I was so happy to see it, and the photos don't do justice to how strikingly beautiful it was, that I was not a bit afraid. :->

All those puppies on your lap is like a nice group hug.
Everyone is happy and content,,, and a good way to relax and remember the thrills of the day!

Our humans can't think of anything more fun than riding a horse. But we miss them when they're gone and are all over them just like you guys are with your mom!
