I actually took these pictures last Friday only to have several inches of snow dumped on us on Monday.  Fortunately it melted pretty quickly and we can see grass again.  Is it bad that I am tempted to hit the last remaining snow piles in our yard with a hair dryer so they go away already?

Gus has thoroughly enjoyed sunning himself on the deck

Inspecting the birds, squirrels and rabbits that have reappeared

and killing me with his desperate good looks


Unfortunately spring also means cleaning up all of the messes Gus left in the far reaches of the yard this winter.  Definitely NOT a fun job.

What are Ben, Smalls, Kaya, Rufus, Ted and Zapp finding in their yards?  Go find out!
