We got our first snowfall over the weekend. It was just enough snow that I felt obligated to shovel the public sidewalk in front of my house. As I was preparing to go outside, Diego-san was being extra needy of attention so I told him I could use a little help shoveling and suggested I let him go outside and swish his impressive tail around to clear the snow. I certainly couldn't lose him in the snow given his color.
As I went to the front door Diego-san hopped up on the bookcase next to the door as if to indicate he was willing to try what I suggested. Alas, I changed my mind and decided it probably wasn't a good idea to use him as my snow swisher.
