I am not the only one pacing, waiting anxiously for signs of Spring.
Every evening around 6pm, four bunnies stand at my sunroom door, waiting for their apples.
The snow has covered every edible thing, except for my newly planted Cleveland Pear Tree "grove", which I thought was protected sufficiently, but when the snow rose above the tree protectors the rabbits sat upon the higher elevation and ate the bark above the snow line. I'm sure the trees are goners but I am am hoping to get at least a Springtime bloom.
The bunnies fill up on apples and then head over to the trees for a bark chaser.
I don't care because those bunnies are just so FLUFFY!
So fluffy I could die.
Speaking of fluffy, this has been a busy time for us.
Homeless cats and dogs still need to be rescued, no matter what the weather.
After this post, we are headed out to pick up three puppies and a Border Collie an hour south and drive them to a shelter three hours north, then back home. This is something we are passionate about. There are no words to convey how fulfilling this is.
Maybe your warm home could be their next stop?
Tallulah, our beautiful English Bulldog, is the reason for this particular post. (When I see that photo of her in the shelter compared to now I can't believe the difference!)
Tallulah is a bed hog of epic proportions. Award winning.
If there was an Olympic bed hogging event she would win the medal,
along with one for the Ladies' Downhill Slalom.
But that's another story for another day.
She is small as far as bulldogs go but she is transmogrified to a beast 10x her size at bed time.
I am not making this up.
Don't let that sweet face fool you! Not only does she monopolize the bed, she eats the blankets! And the pillows! And Gracie's hair!
She may have a long lost grandmother who was a goat.
See how love has changed the little darling? The first photo shows Tallulah in the shelter after she was rescued from a breeder, so sick and waiting for surgery.
Look at her in our garden this past Summer!
It looks like two completely different dogs!
You know how much I love Before and After collages!
Too beautiful not to share!
This is nothing compared to what she has given us!
The twin size bed was no longer working. Gracie became quite adept at accommodating Tallulah but she was sleeping in positions that Iyengar Yogis have yet to master.
Something had to change.
Kicking Tallulah out of bed was not an option for Gracie.
So I headed to the answer for all of life's questions...
Look what we found on Craigslist for $300!
Full size French bed for my little princess and her little princess.
Not going to paint it.
Instead of a box spring we bought a bunkie board to maintain the low profile.
Hopefully, her room will be done soon. I promise to give you updates!
