Happy Presidents Day

Although not the actual birthday of either Washington or Lincoln, who used to have their own days. But since we wrote about Lincoln and Fido (the family dog) on Lincoln’s birthday, how about today we touch on Washington and the nation within? He was busy building this wonderful new human nation but he found time to do some dog breeding. GW bred his Virginia hounds with French hounds he got from the Marquis de Lafayette, creating the American foxhound. He led a rather full life.

    Indeed, Mount Vernon is one of the most pet friendly of all Presidential residences. Teddy has visited many times, including with some of his friends on this here blog. Below is a picture of him with Ms. Rose at Mount Vernon.

    And here is one of Teddy with Amalia and the guy he hung around here in Chevy Chase. That is the main residence at Mount Vernon in the background.

    Happy Presidents Day to everyone!

    People!!! It’s cold here! We are not used to this. And the entire state of Texas is in this deep freeze. A lot of power outages, some due to issues and some due to rotating outages. Mom and I have been lucky so far and have had no power interruption. We have the thermostat set at 68 to conserve usage. All unnecessary things turned off. Actually, Mom has been a slug since about 2:00.
    She is wondering how AJ did it during the Iditarod.

    BooBear: You are giving me goosebumps! Thanks for checking in. I suggest hibernating for a couple days if you are able. Under no circumstances should you drive with all those people who have no experience in driving in snow, heh!

    WATP: Love the photos of our friends and Mount Vernon.

    Weather report: The sun has gone under a layer of clouds but the temperature has finally warmed up. We are 3 degrees F. Warmer than lots of Texas!

    We have had cold gray skies and sleet but nothing compared to our Texas friends. It is a wee bit chilly and tomorrow’s high will be 32. See we have no reason to complain at all.
    Stay safe stay warm friends in cold places.
