We're havin' a heat wave!

Yes, I am very, very jealous about all of the snow my friends have been getting. Sophie has like 27 feet of the white stuff at her house! I love the snow. And we had a few days last week where it snowed every day. I was in heaven.

I got to spread my pee mail all over the neighborhood.



And make lots of yellow snow cones.


Then it got warm and the snow melted and it's been raining ever since. Yuck!

But tonight...the rain stopped and the temperature went to almost 65 degress! A regular heatwave for Pittsburgh in December. It was so nice outside, we got to eat our dinner on the deck among all of the Christmas lights.

A turkey neck just tastes better enjoyed al fresco!




It was like fine dining at a fancy French Bistro!



Lola took her time and really savored the experience. It would probably be the last time we can eat outside for a several months.



Hmmm...I think I love turkey necks more than snow.

Hmm I haven't had a good turkey neck in forever. Poor Poor me. You are some lucky dogs. That neck is about as big as your head. :) :)

I've never had a turkey neck before. It sounds good. Lola, you sure look like you enjoyed it! :)

Hey Sherm! I get turkey necks AND snow. It's snowing again right now. And guess what I had for dinner? Well, okay, it was chicken necks, but close. I would love love love to have a turkey neck with you on your lighty deck. I would be hard not to beat you up for being too close to my food, but all the rest of it would be really great and even kind of romantic. Oh ... I'm flirting again. Oops.

Man, you guys have the best meatables in your house. We can't think of anything better than chewing on a turkey neck on a warm starry night. Yellow snowcones or not, that sounds like a perfect evening!

I have never experienced snow but it seems like most doggies love them. You made those turkey neck looks so yummy that I would like to take a bit out of it although I have never let any raw stuff into my mouth before.

Luv,

Snowball

Hey! I guess I'll have to try & not take for granted the patio dining I get to do every now & then..but I guess I'd rather have snow than be able to eat outside...

Xsara ... said...

Wow, that is some dinner! Xsara can't have turkey because she is allergic to poultry, so she'd be extra jealous. I bet you looooved eating turkey necks outside!

Mmm those do look yummy!
We have lots of snow here. It went up to my chest before it melted. We are supposed to get more, too. But it's too cold out, the Mum says it's 17 degrees!

Petra said...

What a holiday feast! I'm jealous.

Lady Kaos said...

I don't think I've ever had a turkey neck! They look very yummy! I'm going to have to tell Mom about those. hopefully she wont' get grossed out. If she thinks it's gross, she doesn't make it for me or buy it for me. SOOO unfair!

I'd choke if I tried to eat that. I know this from past experience. It seems you need to chew it and not down it one.

Hi guys! We totally love the snow! We got turkey necks for the first time this Thanksgiving. Princess and Isaac loved theirs, Tank gave his a few tentative licks and left it for Princess.

Girasol said...

Stanley said...

Sherm!

I love to al fresco... even in the snow! Once it got all cold here I went into giddy goober mode and can't get enough of being outside.

Sorry about your heat wave. I hope it is followed up with loads of snow. I'd send you some of mine, but I really don't have much to spare.

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley
