Doppler just went out for her last walk of the night. She’s cute.
Normally, when she’s ready to go outside she’ll climb onto my lap and lick my face. Not this time of day.
We laze on separate sofas, both prone and with Afghans. For a few minutes she’ll stare at me. Then she’ll bark
It’s her signal, the weakest, quietest bark possible. Actually, it’s more dog grunt than bark. It’s Doppler’s equivalent of clearing her throat.
I got her leash and a flashlight. We went out in the chill. Where the hell is spring?
Bridgeport was 10° below average today. Bradley was 18° below! Much of the state never saw 50°.
We really need spring after this crazy winter. Bridgeport had over twice as much snow as usual. At Bradley it was around 40% over norm. Here on Mt. Carmel we had over a month of continuous snowcover.
It seemed endless.
Wednesday will be closer to the weather we’re used to in late April. Over the weekend 70° is possible.
Right now I need spring like crazy and I’m not embarrassed to say it!
