my little winter olympian

We live in a little speck of a town just outside of a little city, but the buses come through regularly and that is how the wife travels to work at Cornell. Over the years she has gotten to know many of the other riders, and they are all pals (except for a few of the scary looking guys in the back of the bus sipping who knows what out of paper bags).
I often wait for the wife to hop off the bus by our house at the end of the day, so everybody knows she lives in a purple house and has a cute 13 inch beagle. Yesterday another lady on the bus explained
"I had a 13 inch beagle but she passed away. This was her winter coat. I feel like I should have burned it when she died, but maybe you would like it for Penny?".
Penny is, naturally, pretty good natured and up for any adventure, but extra cold weather is hard for a dog with a thin coat and HOLY CATS this jacket is an exact fit! Doesn't she look sharp! Tres patriotic too in red, white and blue.
And we are in it today alright, HUGE blizzard in the making. We already had a foot of snow on the ground, it started falling last night, supposed to accumulate and be horrible until tomorrow. She will need this coat. I have a class to teach at Cornell this afternoon. I am not sure yet whether to cancel.




Ohmygoodness, you have seen me post this video before, but it is SO good...

Penny does look sharp. :) Am sorry you have a storm coming but SO glad that this one passed us up!

It's like the lady on the bus knew it was going to snow and knew that Penny was going to be cold. :)

Snazzy. Very snazzy. We're supposed to get varying mixtures of snow and rain for the next few days. Good luck with the snow!

Aww Penny looks so good in her new coat, she needs it in all that snow.

What a nice lady to give Penny such a lovely jacket! Yes indeed she is very patriotic! Bet she loves that jacket now.

How very sweet of that lady!

But I think Spike is jealous.
