Monday Memories

After a weekend of snow we have had a cold spell 
with night time temps in the single digits.  
The other evening I was taking my dear sweet time 
finding a spot to go pee when Mom said to me

"Mabel! you've got your Greta on!"

Then she smiled as a memory filled her thoughts

It was January 2013. 
After two days of snow 
the temperatures turned bitterly cold, 
minus double digits at night and single digits during the day

Bailey & Hazel were pretty good about getting their business done quickly and getting back in the house.

But not Greta, 
She would have to go back and forth about 87 times 
before she would be ready to do anything. Then her feet would get too cold before she could get anything done

So we went shopping and got Greta some boots!!

Here she is testing out her new boots
If you listen you can hear the snow squeaking with the cold

In typical Greta style
she scaled the snow mountain to pee!

Oh how we miss that girl

We are the PugRanch Kids

    I am glad you are channeling your inner Greta, Mabel... it is an extra kinda specialness!!! hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. if we had snow we would like such boots too... da neilson said he will miss the snow a little this winter (he is weird) ;O)

  3. Pawfect, what a GREAT memory and dear Mabel, you keep channeling your inner Greta, a great role model and a pup I still look up too
    Loves and licky kisses

  4. Sweet precious know I always type Great...first time I try to type Greta.
    She was truly GREAT and I 100% understand how much you miss her. I'm sure diva Madi and Greta the Great are twerking OTRB.
    I loved this video and woo hoo Greta made yellow snow.
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. Those temps are much too cold to fool around in, Mabel. Hurry it up and get back inside where it's warm! We loved your video! Greta doesn't seem to be bothered by the frigid temps at all!

  6. That sure is cold. We have to wear booties if it gets below 10 degrees F. It takes both of us too long to find the right places to do our business and our toes freeze if we don't have our booties on.

  7. What a sweet memory! Getting your Greta on sounds like a LOT of fun to me!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  8. That is a great memory of Greta. And one more reason to shoot lots of video. Mabel, we foresee the possibility of boots in your future:)

  9. You can tell how cold it is by the way the snow squeaks. We haven't had it that cold here … yet. Once Lakes Erie and Ontario start to freeze, the bitter cold will come to us. Stay warm pups!

  10. Greta as a true champ who never let anything get her down. We love the picture of her with the shows. She looks so stylish.

  11. Well, no wonder she had to walk around, having a camera pointed at you, does put off your business. BOL!

  12. Greta was such a doll. I don't think the Bayou Boys would either one want to go take care of business in those temps with the snow!

  13. You can tell it is very cold when the snow makes that crunchy noise. It's been a long time since I've heard that. I know you still miss Gretta terribly. It's so good you have these memories.

  14. What an adventurer Greta was! Mama says Rosy may have a bit of Greta in her too...she is soooo mischievous!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  15. What a fun memory. She looked so great in her boots and was full of adventure!

  16. What a sweetie. I can see why you miss her so. Some girls just have to have the pawfect spot to do their business, no matter how cold it is. Yes, Elsa...I'm talking about you. BOL

  17. BOL she had to find da pawfect spot ;) Such a sweet memory of sweet Greta!!

    Matt & Matilda

  18. Charlee: "Have boots ..."
    Chaplin: "... will travel!"

  19. We remember that beautiful memory of Greta too! She is never out of our thoughts!
