After much deliberation, we decided to start the first day of the new year the same way we did since 2011...by taking our traditional "mugshot". As was expected, it was not an easy task and the empty space next to Jasper was painfully felt, but we carried on and Jasper did great. So proud of this boy for being so strong for us!
Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you make many wonderful memories to keep.

We had several snowstorms in the last 1 1/2 weeks, one after another. Very unusual for this region and combined with the frigid temperatures and the ice that formed, it pretty much shut everything down for awhile. Terrible to try to maneuver around, but it was so beautiful!

Couple weeks into March, it's still feeling like winter...although they say it'll finally start to warm up this weekend.
Jasper is one of those weird dogs that actually likes wearing clothes. He does get quite cold and starts to shiver, but I also think he likes the calming compression that an extra layer provides, kind of like how a ThunderShirt helps.

For a few days every spring, the UW Quad turns into a magical place of bursting cherry blossoms. We managed to enjoy it at its peak last week, right before the arrival of the rain and wind. It was stunning in the early morning light with the light breeze making it rain pink and white and blanketing everything in sight.
