My outside dog is spending the night inside. She’s getting older as we all are and I can’t think that sleeping outside in the cold when it’s as cold as this can be comfortable, especially in the joints. So she will be spending the night inside in the winter from now on. (Oh, my poor floors! I’ll never keep them clean now. The cats are also distinctly unhappy… but they’ll get used to it.) But really, it’s just too cold to keep letting her sleep outside.
In other news, a friend posted this link to a beautiful story. I’m reposting to keep up with it and because I want to share it with any of you who would like a lovely short fairy tale before bed.
