Here's a photo of me back when I had lotsa furs.... and we had lotsa snow, too!




Da weather is supposed to turn kinda nasty on Sunday and next weekend is supposed to be nasty, too... I sure hopes da white stuff stays away.

She are one heckuva pawsome girl Westie and I sure would like it if y'all would go ovfur and welcome her to Blogville! Bonnie has SARDS and has gone blind, she has Cushings, too... but she is still as amazin' as she evfur wuz...
