Heh. Mom's Google hits as of late have been fairly boring... "Spring yard work"? "Cracker dog"? Well, okay. I can kinda see that last one. But Spring Yard Work? As if. Abby is the only one around here competent enough to be allowed to do any yard work. Mom must be kept at least 15 feet from any foliage, lest her toxic thumb kill all of our trees and bushes, and leave us living in something resembling Carthage once Scipio Africanus was done with it*. Anyhoo, 'nekkid wrestling' should bring in some good Google hits. ;-)
So, Abby and I got our spring haircuts. I know there is still snow on the ground, but it's getting really warm during the day, and our snow is melting very quickly. (Think of the wicked witch in a steam bath, and you'll get the idea....) We're quite happy with our new sleek, streamlined looks, and have taken the opportunity to get in some serious bitey-face. ('Nekkid bitey-face' won't bring in as many good Google hits as 'nekkid wrestling'...)
That last picture was taken this morning, and if you can't tell, our snow was already getting mushy. Which means that Mom and Dad will be doing more of the bye-sickle-ing and less of the skiing stuff (unless it gets colder and we get more snow, which is entirely possible). We're happy no matter what the weather, because bitey-face is one of the all-season activities!
You may also notice that now that Abby has lost her floof, she is much less intimidating looking. I mean, look at those skinny little leggies! She's much easier to smackdown on, now that she's nekkid! Heehee.

*"Scipio Africanus" you ask? Well... Mom's a big fan of ancient Roman history and we think some dude salting the earth is way more interesting than some dude who divides Gaul into three parts and then gets stabbed by his buddies for his efforts. :-)
