As the Cold Weather Sets in...

...We have been witnessing the "puffing-up" (or "floofing-out", to use modern lingo) of Manitou over the past month or so - it's amazing to witness the transformation. He grows a gorgeous ruffle around his neck and a very thick undercoat which makes him appear twice as big. And when it's very cold, he floofs out even more. He is so beautiful! The 2nd photo is a bit blurry, but still shows him off nicely I think. And he seems to like to post-sit in this cooler weather - he never sits on this post in the summer - not that I've noticed anyway. In the 3rd photo we see him hiding his face with his big paw, as to say, "wake me up when spring comes!"

Be sure to check out The Friday Ark and then Carnival of the
on Sunday.
