Dogs and snow and my son Star Trek

Good Friday morning you'all,
I know most of you are freezing back east... so I read the paper in the sunshine 'on the veranda' [that is a personal joke between Sam and I... We say in an upper crust type voice "Darling lets have a cup of coffee on the veranda this morning" "Oh yes lets do that"] translation - the backyard...
My 'Hollywood' dogs as Chrissie calls them
[however I do not know why as my dogs are not gay LOL]
were loving the morning sunshine also...
Here are some photos...
Bolts [Kam is a Charger's fan]
Gi Gi is in the planter an Rider is soaking up the sun.
As you can see GiGi still has paint on her...
 
 
I gave her another bath yesterday but it won't come off... Grrrr....
 
So anyway... I was reading Lisa Jo's entry this morning looking at all that snow and I have a question for all of you pet owners back east...
How in H E double hockey sticks do you get your pets to go outside and 'do their business' in the snow? When it is raining here its a nightmare for me to get them to go outside... I can NOT begin to imagine how you get a dog to go out in 32 degree weather... So I am asking... seriously I want to know... do you put newspaper or puppy pads on the porch or something?
 
[I know that seems like a stupid question but I have never LIVED in the snow. I just found out a couple of years ago that car doors freeze shut, and that you can't go out with wet hair!]
 
Anyway... on to other matters... LOL
 
You may be thinking... "Kendra you are leaving for Texas a week from today, how is it that you have so much time to write today" Well let me tell you... I am home alone... Whooooooo Hoooooo.... Sam and the boys are at Perris Raceway practicing for a HUGE race Saturday... This is a Loretta Lynn's Qualifier... Only the top 5 in the western U.S. get to go to Loretta Lynn's in July... The race is THE most important race of an amateur motocross racer. Just being able to say you went is a HUGE deal... We went in 2003, Kameron qualified and brought home a 6th place trophy... but we want to go back obviously... its a blast... we are trying to race all the big Nationals this year... Texas, Las Vegas, Ponca City Oklahoma, Loretta Lynn's in Tenn, then the only one we haven't raced are the Mini O's in Florida [Hi Roxymomma]
Too far...
Anyway... I just got off the phone with Candice... Guess who starts working at Disneyland next Friday in the costuming department... Yup SHE GOT THE JOB!!! Woo Hoo... Yaaaaa
Its only part time but she is hoping to get more hours, meanwhile she may also be working at Hoag hospital in Newport Beach part time! That would be great...
 
Let's see what else... ahhh yes you all were asking why Leenie and Kameron were not still together... That is a long story... plus he has a girlfriend named Amber right now.. He has had 4 serious girlfriends...
Stephanie [cheerleader who broke his heart at the beginning of 9 th grade] we do NOT like her... she was a stuck up bitch from hell... Candice called it from the beginning but we didn't see it till later...
Darlene [you know about my Leenie... long story short Kameron was an excellent boyfriend to her, spoiled her rotten, and she started acting spoiled sadly... bossing him around... just became a spoiled brat... I tried to talk to her about it but she didn't listen... he broke up with her]
Rachel [We also LOVE Rachel but she was another one who had some serious family problems... I helped Rachel get into college too, she plays on the Volleyball team here at College of the Desert]
Rachel has a bootie to die for... Pam's hubby Chuck calls her bubble butt
 
I once asked Kameron... What do you do take out an ad ...
'Wanted virgin girlfriend, no family involvement'
he didn't think it was funny... oh well...
I also call him Star Trek
'Because he boldly goes where no man has gone before'
Anyway he is now going out with Amber... We really wish he wasn't... as you can tell I never write about her... if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all... she is a nice girl but she is so immature [cries at the drop of a hat over nothing, and her eating junk food makes us crazy!]  Kameron gained a lot of weight the first year he was out of high school... He has lost 22 lbs trying to get back in shape to race MX... she will bring cookies and candy to the track to watch him race... I mean it doesn't help him, and I was use to Rachel who eats really good, drinks tons of water, goes to the gym, etc...
All his girlfriends have been athletes... Stephanie - cheerleader, Darlene was on the swim team and water polo team, Rachel was on the volleyball team and track team, and Amber was on the water polo team and track team...
 
Whatever... I keep the rubber jar filled because the last thing I want is for him to get any of them pregnant! I mean he is 20 years old... he's not a little kid anymore...
Well I better go do something before my hubby gets home and says 'What have you done all day? Floggin and Bloggin?'
Don't forget I really want to know about dogs going in the snow... seriously I do

OK, snow and dogs....

Jazz will go in the snow....he could care less.  But Maggie?  Well, she's LITTLE....she can't even SQUAT if there's more than 2 inches of snow!  So, we usually have to shovel a little path for her....and a little area for her to go in!!!!

So, the spoiled girl got the boot, huh?  Maybe she's learned...and grown up....????  One can hope....

Tell Amber to put those cookies where the sun don't shine!!! (lol)

((hugs))
Jeanne

PS...Can we see a pic of Amber?  I'm just nosy.....(lol)

Is that like a cookie jar??? Hummm.... those don't always work either.
LOL let me tell you this dog named Max lives in Wisconsin he goes in like 5 foot snow so I guess it's all what you get use to. Kyan loves to watch videos of him running around in the snow LOL.
Take care and enjoy your sunshine.

I think you got the answer about the dogs and snow. IF we get snow this year, I'll show you how it's done. We shovel a little spot for her to go so she wont get lost out there. (remember she's a Shih Tzu). She's ok with snow, it's the rain she hates.
You could write a book, my boys and  their Ex's.

Hugs,
