Huge props to staff members Matthew, Bobbie, and Jessica for braving the weather and coming in on a record breaking snow day to take care of our adoption center animals. All went well, the day complete and enhanced with photos of dogs playing in the snow and a few selfies. Everyone went home around 4 pm except Matthew.

And then this happened.

Not exactly the text one would expect from their number one volunteer coordinator when you know for a fact that he is still at work.

Me: Matthew, where are your pants?

Matthew: They were wet from being outside so I put my all clothes in the dryer.

Me: You know I can pull up the cameras on my phone, right?

Matthew: I know. That's why I turned them off while I was wearing a towel.

Damn these kids and their computer technology. 

For the most part, it seemed like the rest of us got some solid at home time, and the photos of dogs playing infiltrated the internet and social media. Dogs in coats, dogs bunny hopping through the snow, dogs running through shoveled out mazes, dogs sleeping hard. It was like a whole new world out there, fresh and free from the daily grind, and topped off by a beautiful sunset. It made our hearts happy to see you all sharing it with your pets.

Stay safe, everyone, and be grateful for the unexpected down time we have with the ones we love.

Wow, it really snowed last night! Isn't it wonderful?
Everything familiar has disappeared!
A new year ... a fresh, clean start! It's like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on!
A day full of possibilities!
It's a magical world, Hobbes, ol' buddy ... let's go exploring!
