Me And My Shadow


Hi Everybuddy -

Today is Groundhog Day! It's the day we hand over the weather predicting to a pudgy guy with fur. Some very rude people drag the poor fella out of his burrow where he's sleeping and they let him waddle around on the ground. If he sees his shadow that means we'll see six more weeks of winter. It's a pretty big deal to some people......and somedoggy too. Today is Amber's birthday! What a coincidence to have a birthday on Groundhog Day. That makes her an expert. You can read all about her prediction for the day here.
I decided to do a little predicting of my own since it's such an interesting day. I went outside to see if I could see my shadow:


"Woo -I don't see my shadow."
Oh no. That's not good news for a Siberian Husky. We want snow! How can we have snow if we don't have six more weeks of winter?

"Is winter almost gone??"

Then it hit me! My Shadow is here after all! Look:

"There's my Shadow!"

Great news! 6 more weeks of winter......Woo Hoo!

And a very, very happy birthday to bewootiful Amber at the AO4. I wonder if she's having cake.

Pee S: We'd like to thank Jan's Funny Farm for giving us the "Excellent Blog" award yesterday. We'll be thinking about who we're going to share it with.
