Deck Time? In January?

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  You'll never guess what Zim and I got to do yesterday!  It was a crazy, crazy day here in Kansas - for January!  Our high was 77 degrees!  Mom said it was her reward for all the single digit and teens we'd been having - AND she said, "Let's go play outside on the deck!"

Zim and I each got to take a toy outside!  He chose the Kong Jack toy that he likes and I thought Purple Panda should come out and enjoy the day with us!

"C'mon, Double P!  Let's soak up some sunshine!"

Purple Panda was smiling, as you can see, so I think he was happy to go outside for some SQUEAK time, too!

We walked around a bit, then we played that Fetch game that I like so much!

"Here we come, Mom!"

Look at Double P smiling!  He's always like that - such a happy guy!

We played lots of Fetch!  I love bringing stuff to Mom when she throws it!

"I am not a Labrador, Zim!  Besides ... you should try this -- it's FUN!"

Zim was playing on a different part of the deck.  He doesn't quite get the Fetch game, since it goes against Siberian Husky Rule Number 107 - We don't fetch.  I understand staying true to the code and all ... but really!  It's so fun, I just can't help it!  I think Zim should give it a go, don't you?

Anyway, Mom and I played some more ...

"Here, Mom!  Throw him again!"
As I've said before, I have no idea what happened to Purple Van Gogh's ear.  Woo.

... then Double P wanted to go inside.

"Are you OK, Purple?"

He seemed exhausted.  I went in with him to make sure he was OK.  There's a chance that we took a nap together.

We sure enjoyed our 77 degree day!  We tried our best to make the most of it.  To show you how crazy Kansas is, just after midnight this morning (you know, the middle of the night!), our temp was still at a record high of 70℉ ... and now tonight we're expecting "measurable snow".  This is why meteorologists love our area -- there's always something going on!

Zim will post pix of his playtime in a day or so!  He really had fun, too.  And so did Mom!



  1. Your Kansas weather was warmer than our L.A. weather!! Krazy stuff!! On Sunday we went swimming around noon - it was 60ish - and then in the afternoon it got VERY dark, and then started pouring rain. It turned cold (for us), dropping to the 40's a few hours later. After the rain stopped there was SNOW on our mountains!! OMD!! Who's running this thing??

  2. Hi Dave, Well I'm glad you loved that warm weather; we had it last week(though not quite that warm)and loved it but yesterday got snow...and it is headed your way. We didn't get as much as Goose or Murphy & Stanley but still got a little. Hope you have a great afternoon.
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  3. Pawsome you weather is like ours. That is why we Brits go on and on about it. Today warm, tomorrow who knows, last week snow. Ever changing apart from the rain. Enjoy your time outside guys whilst you can and Dave make sure 2PP gets some rest. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. PS hope mums' back is better. Take it easy mum.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. We're having that same weather yesterday and today, except today we're getting some rain too. Bah, humbug! You and PP sure seemed to be having a grreat time. You all earned it!

  6. Oh boy you must have been thrilled to hang out on your deck
    Have a fun day
    Benny & Lily

  7. Your deck is so nice and dry...today our cement porch is full of water cos its raining plus the humidity is higher so the porch is wet...mom says its like a swampy mess out there. When I ventured out i even looked for alligators. It is warm here also, but is supposed to start to snow later...geeze!!

  8. Dave and Zim I first have to tell you about the snow. While you are in the 70's I am being buried. I am not kidding. You saw my post...well it has not stopped snowing. No kidding. I just came in helping MOM shovel ANOTHER 10 or 11 inches. My belly scrapes the snow in the yard most places and it's even past my belly in other spots. In fact our mail box has another 10 or so inches to go and it will be completely covered. I have been practicing my fort building, but to be honest I don't have to do much digging or moving the snow. I just dive in and there ya have it, a fort. I'm glad MOM decided to work from home today, but she does have to go to the shelter tonight. I think I get to go with her, I hope. Now about your deck time. I love to play fetch. I did not know that Husky's had a rule not to. hummm. Wonder why. It is way fun. I bet Zim does it when no one is looking.

  9. Oh my dog, 77 in January, in Kansas, BOL That's as crazy as the 20's we had here last week. Glad you got to enjoy this crazy weather, ours has gone back to 70 this week

    Me and Nellie agree. We do not fetch either. Playing fetch not for Us.

  11. WOW a SUNNY 77 degree day in JANUARY?
    THAT looks like a heavenly time fur sure.

  12. what fun!!! we had the kinda warms here today, but mom says it was so windy that you can't tell it is warm - so no open windows. And it is supposed to get cold here later in the week too. We would very much like spring to get here soon!!!

  13. Panda looks like he enjoyed the deck time with you but we sure hope you get some snow. Glad you made sure Panda got rest after the play time Davy!

  14. We are so happy to hear you all got to enjoy some nice warm weather and sunshine. Your weather sounds like ours only we have not been quite as cold and have not had as much snow. It was in the 70's yesterday and today. Storms this evening and tonight and then they said we could get some winter precipitation. Stay warm and we hope you don't get more snow than you like. Hugs and nose kisses

  15. I have been having deck time too... but it's summer over here.

  16. Wow! Those are some very warm temps! Enjoy them while they last in the wintertime, Zim and Dave!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  17. I got to go on THREE outings yesterday because it was so nice. Master took us on a long walk when he got home from work and since Mrs. Master didn't feel as though she had enjoyed the weather enough, she took us AGAIN when she got home! WOO!

    it's the best week ever. Extra outside time AND snow!



  18. Oh, Star wanted me to tell you she also likes to fetch. Maybe you guys are related.


  19. That sure is some crazy weather!!!
    We were laughing because it was 30+ today!
    Alas, single digits are on their way for an extended stay.

  20. It was really warm here today too. On our Sunday run, Mom wore two pairs of pants, two long-sleeve shirts, gloves, scarf, and hat. Today she wore shorts and a t-shirt. What a change! We preferred Sunday.


  21. And I thought we had it nice in the 60's here today in Ohio. Glad you guys made the most of the day.

  22. Oh boy! We are expecting summer in January here tomorrow. I hope I get to fetch like you, Dave. Zim doesn't know what he's missing.


  23. We've had warm weather today and expect more tomorrow. Unfortunately it is raining so a bit messy to be outside. I hope the snow comes back soon.


  24. What! 77 degrees in Kansas in January! Super crazy, enjoy it while it lasts!

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  25. The weather sure has been crazy. Today it stormed and rained all day and the rain took all of our snow away. It is supposed to get real cold again. Its crazy!

    Loveys Sasha

  26. Oh, Dave. I miss seeing your handsome face!


  27. We are having crazy weather....I can't believe you are out on your deck....
