Biting wind and no moisture energizes Lupine. She is spinning and running across the parking lot and ready for more. I love seeing her full of energy. I watch her lick her mouth quite a bit and some odor and cries out when I friend barely touches her face and I just stay on top of the things that can help and treat her like a normal pain in the ass dog which she can be. The sun is reassuring in the cold front that has invaded the landscape. My partner has decided we can stay at the house after all given he was ready to toss us out after a not so great fight and we live our lives during this chapter of winter with the hope of spring.
