Puppies all over the great northern half of the country are awaiting the coming of spring. They look at us longingly hoping we can do something about the foot of snow in their yard. They're ready to smell the bare ground again, to chase squirrels, roll in the new mown grass, drink from the wading pool, run through the sprinkler, eat bugs..... How are we humans to break it to them, it may be weeks away?
Give your puppy a cookie and a pat on the head. But most of all avoid direct eye contact.
