" The world has gone White" Squirt pokes her nose out of the door and large Snowflakes descend. She steps onto the snow gingerly and stands there inspecting the White stuff on the ground........
"It's Snow Squirt"
"Can you eat it?"
"It will be cold" Squirt trots down the outside stairs, a little slower than her usual sonic speed as she can't tell how deep the snow is. But once down into the garden it's a different story She runs around like a being possessed. Bounding and leaping as though she has springs in her paws! She reminds me of Tigger out of the Pooh Bear Books by A.A Milne......Once Tigger Er I mean Squirt has calmed down Her sisters join her outside Pierrot looks, does what she has to do and comes in. Jilla on the other hand is standing there with a big grin on her face as she holds her head up towards the snowflakes as they land on her. Squirt is standing just underneath the tree, when a small clump of snow that has gathered on one of the branches becomes to heavy for the branch to hold.......It falls On Squirt who barks and is now trying to beat up the snow, she runs in wet and cold........ slides across the floor and with a crash comes to a stop as she collides with one of the kitchen units.......
"The white stuff is evil it's trying to take over the world and it tried to beat up Squirt"
She says this all at once without taking a breath.
"Come in and get warm Squirt"
All this before 6:30 am. And Jilla was still outside with a big grin on her face. Looking and enjoying the snowflakes.
"Come on Jilla" Jilla comes in and shakes the snow off
" Snow Pretty"
" I know....... Jilla pretty too"

"Do you like my game."
"What Game Squirt?"
"The Memory Game I chose specially for all my Aunties. But especially for Auntie Karen Her Memory is not what it was........"
"Squirt dont be rude. Auntie Karen loves you"
"Yes and I love Auntie Karen but she is becoming very forgetful"
"Now where did I put that carrot!"

"Brrr! It's cold here today. From the tip of my nose to the tip of my tail I'm cold" Squirt shivers and cuddles up to Pierrot in the hope that they can share body heat. Pierrot grumbles in her sleep but doesn't stir and the two dogs cuddle up together. Jilla being left out comes in the front with me to share a cuddle on the sofa also there is a slim chance that without her sister's being around that she may get a biscuit as I sip my cup of tea. She lies down beside me and puts her head on my lap. She is the oldest of the pup's and as Ridgeback's go" spot on" for the breed so to speak with a nice shaped head and no white anywhere. She is also out of sorts as she is halfway through her first season and keeping Durban away from her is a full time job in itself.
A nudge under my arm reminds me she is still there and
"Can I have a Biscuit Please" Jillas big Brown eye's look at me and to the biscuit tin I take out two one for Jilla and one for myself Jilla munches her Biscuit happily and checks for crumbs.......Squirt upon hearing the biscuit tin and untangled herself from Pierrot and has appeared as if by magic at the door of the front room.
"Ahem! Did I hear the Biccy tin" She trots in sniffing the air around her she looks like an advert for "BISTO GRAVY"
Squirt sits and looks at me and then the biscuit tin.....then back to me and to the tin again......She whines........
"Well what Squirt?"
"Where's mine?"
"Don't you mean. Can I have a biscuit please!"
"Can I have a Biscuit Please!" For good measure she gives me her paw. "PLEASE!"
Just as Squirt finishes in trots Pierrot..............Here we go again.
