Low Riders

Zero Fucks Given

Today in Philadelphia we are dealing with some nasty weather conditions. Winter has arrived shutting everything down for the day. Yesterday it was shorts, t-shirts and record breaking temperatures, but that’s none of my business Mother Nature.

My luv bugs Peanut and Landon, who are on the same schedule, seem to have some “issues” with Mother Nature’s latest mood swing. They are no doubt the Felix & Oscar of the canine world.

Peanut and Landon are what we like to call a “low riders.” They have short legs.

We have discovered that Peanut does not care that he is built like Danny DeVito. He struts through puddles, snow drifts, and high grass as if he is working the runway.  Wet belly, snow balls stuck to his undercarriage like a canine Swifter without one single care in the world given.

In fact, Pee Wee has been channeling his inner Husky since day one. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, he can’t wait to hit the snow. He avoids all shoveled areas, leaves his coat in the house and intentionally climbs to the top of snow piles to gracefully leave a pile of his own. Shhh! He doesn’t know we pick it up.

Nah, I’m good.

Then we have Landon, who is also a low rider and owns it. He has zero interest in the snow or any other weather that does not include sunbeams with perfect temperatures. High maintenance is an understatement. 

Landy Dandy does not have it easy when bad weather hits our area. Nope, not one bit. Unless you consider being CARRIED over puddles and patches of snow a hardship. 

Landon, the Rosa Parks of canines, REFUSES to go out in the elements for any reason whatsoever. It’s a flat, solid … NO! He doesn’t even consider conforming to the masses. (ME)

So, while my neighbors are enjoying Netflix binges on this snowy day, I will be spending a good amount of my time freezing in my yard as I coax a dog to pee, and blow drying snow balls off of a husky wanna be.

Enjoy the Ride …. even when it’s slippery!

  1. My indoor cats go into a screened-in porch. During the winter they will go out and if the tile floor is too cold they do a little dance and run for the door. That is except for Hazel who has the coat of a Husky. She just loves it out there even in the cold.

    1. I’m not surprised at Hazel. She has no clue she is a cat, she is a human in her mind.

      1. Human, bear, Sasquatch. Definitely not a cat.

  2. I opened the door for our kitty and she sniffed once and skunked back inside. She’s no dummy.

    1. I meant slinked not skunked….auto correct haha

  3. I live closer to Hershey PA and agree, its very odd weather, 62 yesterday, 19 tonight, 51 this weekend??!!?? BUT the snow is lovely.

    1. It was so beautiful, but Mother Nature has lost her mind.

      1. LOL she’s having PMS lol

    1. Hahahaha! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Danny DeVito damn near killed the blow dryer.

      1. That’s so funny. You’ve made real characters out of them. I can Danny in a taxi, just with a tail…:)
