Ollie is growing and the kids love him. He is finally able to go down the stairs off the deck into the backyard which is making things easier for us to train him. Now all we need is the temperature outside to go up by 40 degrees and we can really enjoy it. It warmed up a bit the other day, up to about 30, but then a cold front came through and all the melting snow turned to ice. Now the snow is rock hard and slippery. Jenna has just informed me we've got a winter storm watch and are expecting up to 9" of snow by Monday. Yippee.
