Lowri - Today has been almost a total loss. TM hasn't played with me and it has been raining - freezing rain - all day. It is too miserable to play outside. There is ice everywhere! TM lets me out pretty regularly. She has also been very appreciative of my laying on her feet when I am inside. She says I am very warm.
Poor TM, she has been doing something called "taxes". I don't know what it is, but it involves a LOT of mumbling. She has spent most of the day doing them. I tried to entice her into playing with me (getting me my treats), but she just mumbled some more.
Unfortunately, she saw in her checkbook all the money she spent on me this year. She mumbled something like "I could have actually HAD some money if it weren't for all I spent on the dogs". Then she scratched my head - whew! I have been doing my best to keep her feet warm since then!
