Monday Morning Check-in

Good Morning everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was busy. Friday, dh took the day off and we drove into the city. Had breakfast and did a little shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond (we must love that place!). Then we stopped at the Humane Society and I gave another sizeable donation plus I donated toys that Jack and Taz no longer use. I  talked to the director (we've become friends) and she asked me if I wanted to help out more I could come to the facility and read to the dogs. I'm considering. I just wish everything wasn't so FAR away from me. I can't leave Jack and Taz in the house more than 4 hours and it's about a 45-minute drive (one way) to Little Rock. But still..I am considering it. It sounds like fun. Saturday the rain continued so we stayed indoors. Then, church and out to eat again LOL....the rain was really coming down too. Sunday the rain stopped but then it got reallllllyyy cold and with the wind it made the air quite icy. Jack and Taz didn't even want to spend time outdoors unless they had to use the facilities ;-)

Ok, Please sign in with your name, location, your dog's name and breed....and what you did over the weekend.

Gaye here in Dallas/Fort Worth with a bunch of pugs - Anya, Jabaar, and Taurus (the foster).

I worked the shelter's offsite adoption event Saturday.  Sunday was Palm Sunday, and church was complicated and long.  My daughter and granddaughters came and took me to dinner for my birthday.  The kids baked me a chocolate-chip birthday cookie, and the little one gave me an Alyssum flower in a pot she painted herself.  I got a PetSmart gift card from DD.

I had to bring all my plants inside because we had a freeze early this morning, and another is expected tomorrow morning.  The average frost-free date here in DFW is March 15, so we had all planted stuff. There are planter boxes of herbs on the living room floor.  Just one more thing for Taurus to hike his leg on.  I didn't put out my two tomato plants yet, or plant my baby tree.  They are still safe in the garage.

Laura here in VA with 7YO lab/mix, Cleo.

Saturday drove around to try and find a Spring jacket....nothing.  I'll try again this weekend.  Then Sunday is was supposed to rain....we got "snow"!!  At least 3 inches which is very unusual.  It was coming down so hard that DH actually had to put his car in the garage because he had a very early client this morning and I didn't want to have him cleaning off his car at 5:30 a.m.

Once I got down to VA Beach there was nothing...they got rain and a little sleet but no snow at all.  Crazy weather...where is Spring????!!

Donna here with Dante, 3 y/o Greyhound in Arizona. We had nice weather this weekend - low 80's. Saturday I moved boxes from one bedroom to the other and then put together a bed frame. Now you would think that I would just unpack these boxes but noooooooooooo I moved them instead - LOLOLOL! I ordered a queen bed for my spare bedroom and was all in a rush to get the room ready and find out I won't get the mattress until mid-April. Sunday, was my monthly meet n' greet at Petco. We had 3 other Greyhounds there besides Dante which was really nice. Dante could care less about other dogs, including Greyhounds - he's all about the people. He gets snarky with other dogs but just ignores Greyhounds. He's a funny boy! But he had a great time and makes an excellent ambassa-dog for the Greyhound breed!

Hi Laura - I'm looking for spring as well LOL! I heard on tv this morning that we won't get out of the cold temps for a week or so....of course then allergies will start for me. I can't win either way!!

Sounds like a busy weekend. Dante sounds like a dream dog for you! Btw, Jack is still circling the bowl. LOL! I think it's funny.
