Well, I know you are all dying to know how the social event with all the extra little Ninjas went. Well, to my utter shock and dismay, it all took place INDOORS and, since one of those visiting Ninjas is allergic to dogs, I spent the entire time consigned to outdoor patrol duty. Oh, well...at least my middle Ninja (the only boy) got tired of so many little girl Ninjas and spent almost all morning outside with me this morning. Maybe someone had an allergy to him, too! At any rate, we had a good time together...especially since the other two dogs had abandoned me by then. All three of us (even lazy Gloria) took stock of the yard together this morning after discovering all the new wonderful snow! But, Gloria retired back into the dog house pretty early. Rivie and I weathered the storm alone until after breakfast, when Rivie deserted me, too...but, happily, that was about the time the middle Ninja arrived on the scene to keep watch with me!
