Two weeks of low 20-degree temperatures overnights (unheard of in the Sacramento Valley), and there is not much left to show you in the garden.
It got an overdue drink this weekend – after the hoses thawed out. The forecast says the worst is behind us for a while.
The only color I have to share with you this week is on the Christmas tree;
the only birds that made an appearance today were stuffed.
So to warm your hearts – I give you Charlie and Linus (photos courtesy of my friend, Rob) –
two pups that arrived at Homeward Bound barely four months of age. They were accompanied by a very unwelcome guest: parvo. You can read their full story here. Suffice to say, they were blessed to have Homeward Bound guardian angels looking down on them. Most times, the prognosis is not good. A few weeks later, our miracle pups are healthy, happy and ready to roll.
They are also adopted.
Both went home this weekend, just in time for Christmas.
I can’t think of a greater gift.
