This past weekend we experienced something of a heatwave. Temperatures rose into the high 40s and may even have hit the low 50s at some point - downright sweltering compared to the frigid 20s and colder that we had been experiencing in the final weeks of 2010. The balmier weather melted the remaining snow, and gave Ramsay a chance to become re-acquainted with the grass in our yard - without having to wear five layers of clothes! It also meant that he got to experience one of the true pleasures of doxie living - basking in direct sunlight! As Ramsay explored the living room, he would often stop at a sunlit area of carpet and sniff it (as if it were some new toy that NewMama and I set down) before sitting and sunbathing for a short time. Unfortunately, the one area with the largest patches of the most direct rays of light was behind the front door at the bottom of a landing - off limits to dogbert as we prefer that he not play on the stairs. We assured Ramsay that more of these days were forthcoming. Spring can't come soon enough!
