And Happy Hanukkah and a belated Happy Solstice to every-buddy, too!
Momma and Coco and I are all at Granny and Poppa's now. We drove here on Saturday, and since then it has just snowed, snowed, and snowed. I am staying inside and just looking at the snow. My cousins Sophie, Sassy, and the new baby-cousin Cheetah are here, too. Sophie and I have a good time playing, but Sassy and Cheetah are kind of obnoxious little girls. I just ignore them.
I'm sorry I'm not doing a grate job of visiting everybuddy. Momma is still under a lot of stress. She leaves tomorrow and goes to San Francisco for Very Important Job Interviews, she told me. Maybe when she comes back I can convince her to help me catch up with you all!
In the meantime, enjoy a grate holly-day with your families!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

This is what Ithaca looks like in the winter:
This was the snow we got last week. It melted at the beginning of this week, and when we got just a little bit of snow, and then that turned into a thin layer of ice over the yard. So yesterday I could just walk on top of it. But guess what's happening today? Another snow storm. Momma says we'll get about a foot today. I'm not too fond of snow. It makes your feets cold and your furs wet.

Sorry I've been gone for the past couple of weeks. Momma is hogging the computer, and when she's not on the computer, she's stressing out and won't help me blog.
I will be back before Christmas, buddies, I promise. But I gotta keep things together here--Coco and I have our work cut out for us!
I'll catch up with you soon, buddies!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

See, one of Coco's bad habits* is shredding tissues and napkins. Last week, look what Momma found when she got home:
She had put a whole new packet of tissues in her backpack, and the whole thing had been pulled out and shredded, plastic and all!
Coco, of course, denies everything. She says there is an evil Wiener-Demon who comes out of a closet and shreds the napkins on the coffee table and the tissues from the purses when Momma is not around. Momma doesn't believe this, though, because she's also found shredded napkins and tissues in her car when Coco has gone for a ride. And she doesn't know how the Wiener-Demon would get into the car. So we're pretty sure all of the evidence points to Coco.

Every day the snow starts to go away, and then every night we get more snow. It was snowing this morning, too. Momma put out food for the birdies, which they like.
So the other morning, when Coco went outside for her morning pee, and Momma went to get the paper, I figured: "Well, if we're gonna keep having snow, maybe I should just deal with it."

I told Momma she needs to plan a break tonight so we can catch up with all of your blogs, buddies.

"Once while U.S. Marine Ron Aiello was serving in Vietnam, he was alerted by his partner to stop and heel--immediately! Aiello heeded the warning. Moments later, a sniper opened fire, just missing Aiello.
His partner, who clearly saved Aiello's life, was a German shepherd named Stormy. In the time they were together, Aiello says, Stormy saved his life 'a few times.' Today, Aiello is president of the non-profit United States War Dogs Association.
Aiello estimates that military dogs saved about 10,000 lives in Vietnam. 'They have already saved thousands in Iraq and Afghanistan,' he adds. Dogs on duty help detect land mines and explosives, conduct search and rescue operations, and serve as guard dogs."
Not only doggies, but also many horses, dolphins, and even birds have helped our soldiers through the years. So we should celebrate them as veterans as well today.

Here is the update of what's been going on over the Halloween weekend:
Last week, Diamond Emerald-Eyes made a fantastic costume for me for her Masquerade Ball! Check it out!
Then the day after Halloween, Momma and Miss Megan went to the Howl-o-ween Parade at the Dog Park to see the doggies' costumes. This dog was a clown.
This doggie was a bumble-bee. I kinda think she should have been a bat instead, though.And this was our favorite, of course! A Wiener-Skunk!

Momma starts cooking lots of yummy warm meals inside as it gets cooler. Last weekend she made Shepherd's Pie. It smelled deee-lishus. But do you think I got any?
This is me staring at the Shepherd's Pie.
Coco likes taking fall drives.
