Happy New Year!!

We spent the first day of 2017 relaxing - it was nice.  The weather was rainy and foggy - the perfect day to lay low.

The critters were all great this morning.  Piglet and puppies were all up bright and early.  Puppies had a good bit of outside time as they don't seem to care about drizzle or light rain.  Winston had a bit less outside time because if one drop of water gets on him he acts like life as he knows it is going to end. I was a bit late getting meds to Miss Violet this morning.  Once I did get down to critter land I was worried because I have been trying to stay on a pretty tight schedule.  Well - needless to say - I worried for nothing.  I opened the door to find Bash racing down the hallway with Violet nor all that far behind.  She caught him, tackled and proceeded to wrestle for a good 5 minutes.  I guess she is feeling good!  :)  The other ferrets are also doing well - they are all seemingly healthy and happy. Kitties seem fine - they were snoozy due to the rain.  Emma - ah Emma - its raining so she's not a happy pup.  She did go out with the puppies several times but she spent the bulk of the day in front of the heater.  She is smarter than the rest of us.

Tonight - all three girl pups are snoozing in the bedroom.  Tango is out here in the living room with us.  He is such a chilled out little puppy.  The only negative I can come up with is that he is a bit - er - windy shall we say.  OMG how can something so little produce such a stench....

We don't have a ton on the agenda for tomorrow - laying low before we head back to the craziness of work after the holidays.  I am off to tuck in the pig and get the dogs settled for the night.  Happy New Year!!
