I almost can't believe it. We've had 5 straight days of 55-65F temperatures & sunshine! Except for the monstrous piles of snow at the back of our driveway & in parking lots (which might take until June to melt), its ALL GONE!! I had almost forgotten what the landscape looked like, since it was buried for almost 2 straight months! Did someone move Ohio to a more southern latitude while I wasn't looking??
On the way out to get the mail yesterday, Brutus discovered a sure sign of spring: crocuses starting to grow. Too bad he was only interested because he wanted to eat them...
We are far from out of the woods as far as winter goes (it's not unheard of to get an early May blizzard here), but it sure is nice to have a break from it if nothing else! Brutus and I have been out walking all over the place, enjoying not being all bundled up. It even sounds different - the birds are singing and I've even heard an insect buzzing by. The squirrels are out of hibernation and tormenting Mason every chance they get (he'll never catch one, and they know it)!
A quick Flat Brutus update before we leave you for the weekend. He made a guest appearance in Indiana at March in the Pugs, thanks to our pal Salinger and his mom Laura. Hey Sal, you look so serious here! Lighten up, buddy!!
Flat Brutus took a little break from his FBRN fundraising to help Kentuckiana Pug Rescue. He worked the bake sale,
the kissing booth,
and even a silent auction (in front of a cool print from our pal Emmet's mom).
And of course he felt right at home at the Pug Health Zone booth, promoting dental care products!
Don't forget that you can always see where Flat Brutus is and link to the places he's been by clicking on the "Where in the World is Flat Brutus" tab in our nav bar. The "Flat Brutus" tab is dedicated to description of what FB is all about, so if you are a new follower, go there to find out more about the World Tour and our fundraising for FBRN.
Time for me & Brutus to head out for a walk and soak up some rays of sunshine while they last. Maybe Brutus can find some more vegetation he'd like to stop and ingest...
Are you sure I can't eat them mom? Come on, just let met try ONE!
