Rodent Prediction

Hey Pups!

Well, I think I have finally met (or at least heard about) a rodent I don't think I would try to eat. Here's the deal: Every year on a February 2nd, a groundhog named Punxatawney Phil, predicts whether we will have 6 more weeks of winter weather or an early spring. This is all according to a German superstition. I can name quite a few huskies, including the three of us, who are wishing for more winter (Echo, Meeshka, Khyra, Indy, to name a few).

This was Phil's prediction: "As I look around me, a bright sky I see, and a shadow beside me. Six more weeks of winter it will be!"
Whether Phil is right remains to be seen....but if he's not right I might have to hitch a trip north to pay him a visit! For more info on Phil you can visit the Groundhog Club here.
Kisses, Sky boy
(OK, Phil, where's the snow????)

We were really hoping it would be cloudy in Pennsylvania this morning so Phil wouldn't see his shadow. Alas, we're in for 6 more weeks. Have a great weekend Kapp pack

If the little rat is wrong and I don't get any snow... I'm coming up there to eat him and it won't be pretty.

Hi, Sky boy!
We love your post: great minds think alike, eh?

I think Phil looks kind of mean: you're probably better served chasing smaller rodents!

Happy winter,
Kathryn and Ari

I feel out on a limb here - there is no snow. It is sunny and I can lie outside at my gate and dream of KA.
