Last night it started to snow, big soft flakes, just drifting down. This morning we had two or three inches and it was still coming down.
Since its' much more difficult for the birds to find food under all that snow, we made sure all the feeders were full this morning even before the first cup of coffee.
As you can see, it was appreciated. We had quite a gathering at the seed bar also known as the deck. There's one young squirrel, much smaller than the others, who comes and stuffs his face full of sunflower seeds. He won't be the smallest for long.
The dogs all enjoyed the snow, but I didn't take any pictures. It was just too cold. I went out with them and watched them acting silly, but at 18 degrees, I don't stay out long.
Samba doesn't stay out long either. I'm concerned with her thin coat about her getting too chilled. She wears a jacket for her short outings, but there's another problem that has me worried.
Her legs and feet are almost hairless and I see some red areas that concern me.
I think there may be a visit to Dr B this week to make sure she's still on the right track with her treatment.
With her immune system compromised, we have to be on the alert for infections and I want to address these red legs before they become infected. I'm sure the snow and cold can't be very comfortable for her, either, so she stays inside where it's nice and warm.
Even Tsar says the snow would be much nicer if it was a little warmer.
