Back to normal....

like the red toy I got from
Annie and Oakley for my birthday!

Things are back to normal....
what a week this has been!

Mr. Ripley -- that's what I 
call him now that he is a 
BIG boy.... -- is healing
very well.  He plays but gets
tired and just stops and sleeps....

I checked on 
Willy the Weather Stick and
he told me the weather was
going change as we have
had 45 - 50 degree weather
lately -- NOT natural for Minnesota!

When he points up -- it's nice weather
When he points down -- not so nice

AND -- he was RIGHT!

Thanks Willy!
I really needed some snow!

Later -- Remington --
I hope we get LOTS of snow!
-- out!

Hi Y'all,

Remington, that looks like a fun toy to carry around.

Your weather has been the same as ours here in the southeastern mountains. Your weather stick is working for us too. It's 45 degrees this morning and supposed to drop sharply this evening and the rain turn to snow.

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

Priscilla said...

Yeah! So happy for you!!! Hope you have lots of football fun in the snow.

Gus said...

We have been having disgustingly warm weather here too! They are saying maybe snow this weekend, and me and Teka are getting excited.

Our terrier vibes to MR Ripley.

glad you got your snow, there you are wishing for snow and cold and here I am wishing it would not be cold here tomorrow, 42 and 40 on saturday and we are brrrr already. you would not like florida at all, way to warm for a person with a fur coat like you have. have fun in your snow and tell Mr Ripley he looks sooooo adorable sleeping

Amber DaWeenie said...

Watch out what you wish for!!! You may get more than you want!

Good news for Mr. Ripley! Not a baby anymore!

Dar said...

So happy you had a great birthday, Rem and fun toys, too.
Now, I agree, unusual weather here in WI too and welcoming a bit more snow. We only got a couple inches last night. That's enough to play some football or go sliding.

Marilyn said...

Do you want cold air with that snow? We had some yesterday, and it didn't feel so great. In Colorado we call the cold weather "Stock Show" time. But, it seems our really cold weather was in November. Enjoy your play time in the snow.♥♫

HoundDogMom said...

We have been enjoying our extra warm weather as well. We are getting some snow flurries today. You look very handsome in the snow. Makes for fabulous photo shoots. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Mom says we were all acting wild and crazy yesterday like we just KNEW there was snow coming. Well, it came and then it went, all very quickly. We got less than a half inch of the white stuff. And it left us with some bitter temps. But it is nice to have even just that tiny bit of white heaven.

Glad to hear all is well at Remington's place.

OMG! You got snow. Yay! Our rain is supposed to turn to snow overnight tonight. We're going to keep our fingers and paws crossed! I love the picture of your little bro Mr. Ripley. It's sooo cute! Glad to hear he's doing fine. Have fun in your snow!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

43 here this morning... and a couple of inches of snow is expected tonight and tomorrow... YOU and Khyra could keep it all, as far as I am concerned.

Jazzi said...

Oh boy remington, with all new snow, you can get that new football out and break it in just the way you like it huh??

Jazzi and Addy

Kathy said...

Glad to hear Ripley is doing well!

And YAY Rem got snow!
I was doing the "hope Minnesota gets snow" dance for you!
Gotta play football in the snow!
Hugs, Kathy

JC said...

You look so cute sitting in your snow !!!

Glad to hear that your little brother is getting better.

Max the Quilt Cat said...

I wishing for snow for you too, Rem. Not here... up there in Minnesota. Hope you get several inches.... that stick

pawhugs, Max

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Rem...I bet you wish you hadn't ship all you snow away last winter!!
We are glad Mr. Ripley is doing well.
Please tell him that Queen Madi, Diva Island Princess Cat says hello
LET ME JUST SAY MOM HAS HAD A BEAR OF A TIME WITH OUR BLOG TODAY. She got lots of message about Blogger not being supported by our browser told us to change to Google Chrome which we did and now we have the upgraded blogger interface which is 200% different from what we were used to. After all of that she finally got on our blog and can read comments. The only problem is she isn't sure how she got here. MOL. At one point she thought this would be the end of blogging. Mom is not at all technical.
Hugs Madi

Whisppy said...

We hope you get more snow in the days to come, Remi!

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Glad all is returning to normal for you! Taht weather stick sure is weird but accurate!

The Army of Four said...

Our weather down here turned lots more normal, too. For some reason, Mom and Dad liked the 50-60 degree stuff better than the single digits with snow. Crazy, isn't it?
Your toy looks really fun - and of course I LOVE your football!
PS: Mr. Ripley reminds me of Zim. Ha woo.

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Wow, that weather stick is a genius!
Aww, look at that adorable kitty - (those are Mum's words not ours, bol!)

Tessa the Maltese said...

I sure is happy that Riley is feelin a bit better. Naps, that is the trick as far as I is concerned. Yep, lots of naps!

Christine said...

WooHoo! Snow!!! Hope you are having fun!

Tucker The Crestie said...

Glad your little bro came through surgery ok and that you are enjoying your birthday loot!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We're glad to hear that Mr Ripley is doing better.
Willy is sure a smart forecaster!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Kelli said...

I'll bet you've been missing your snow, Remington! It has been freakishly warm here in northern CA, too.. warm 60's. Buster has been sleeping outside at night b/c it's cooler, and he just went to swim in a pond in our neighborhood with his Dad. :o) Yes, he finally decided to SWIM! He's been a "wader" until now. I was beginning to wonder if he was missing his newfie-swimmer gene, but turns out he was just waiting until he was ready. lol Oh, and if you want to get your mom to show you, come to my blog and watch a little video of Buster's new trick.

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

Willy the weather stick to the rescue! He seems like a good buy :)



Ginny said...

I have never heard of such a wild weather stick. Phil said it reminds him a bit of a water witching stick. Wherever did you find such a thing?

Nola said...

Oh snow! You're so lucky

Au and Target said...

You've got such thick fur that we bet snow doesn't bother you much but poor Mr Ripley will have frosty toes! We also have to say we love your tiny teeth in that smiling pic, Remington.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

SNOW! How wonderful. We hope you get lots to make up for how long you have had to wait for the fluffy white joy.

Lorenza said...

I am sure Mr. Ripley will be fully recovered soon!
Aaaand... snow??
Kisses and hugs

Dory and the Mama said...

Yay for snow Remington, we bet you are going to have a blast!!

Two French Bulldogs said...

You got some cool toys to carry around. If you need a playmate don't hesitate

SquirrelQueen said...

Glad to hear Mr. Ripley is on the mend. Enjoy the restful moments Rem, he will be back in action very soon.

Glad to see you've got some snow we are hoping for some flurries this weekend.

bichonpawz said...
