Happiness is a COLD Walk!

Even though the sun was out, today was COLD. Well to us NATIVE CALIFORNIANS it is cold . . . I mean it never even got to the SIXTIES today. I know, I know. . . you pugs in colder climes (like Archie in Colorado, Tiffy in Indiana (is that right???) and Payton near Chicago) are SCOFFING at me. But I was born and raised in the PERFECT NorCal Clime and I do NOT like anything below Sixty-Five degrees. I was all snuggled in my Sock Monkey bed near the heater register just loving it when Mommy #2 came home from work and suggested A WALK.

So we got on our walking GEAR and headed out. It was a BEAUTIFUL late afternoon and everything smelled so fresh and clean because it had rained earlier in the morning. There was a pretty good breeze blowing, though, and it had quite a CHILL to it. Nonetheless, we walked on, shivering just a little in the shady spots. I sniffed GRASS, TREES and some FLOWERS! Hey Mommys, I shouted, is THAT an ORANGE TREE cuz it sure smells orangy! I was lovin' it so MUCH!

Look at my face in the picture - don't  just OOZE Happiness? This was AFTER my invigorating walk and I tell you, I couldn't have BEEN HAPPIER! I am so looking forward to more COOL WEATHER walks. As long as the sun shines I think I am definitely on the ROAD to HAPPINESS.

Noodles I was raised in the Midwest and even spent time in Michigan and I still don't like it when it's below 65 so I'm with you! BTW, Payton lives just outside St. Louis, she just visits Chicago often because Dr. Podell is there and they enjoy Chicago so much. :)

Um, you have the heat on at 60 degrees?
In the spring, at that temp we have the heat off and all the windows open with my puggy nose pressed against the screens to breath in all the wonderful smells of the outside world.
I'm still shoulder-deep in snow here in the great white north in Canada. I've got another month or two of dreaming of grass and flowers before they become a reality.

Oh Miss Noodles, Miss Scarlet refuses to leave the house without a sweater if its less that 55 here in the northeast. She just says "no can do Mommy!"

BTW, no we do not have the heat on at 60 degrees. It goes off at 54 but the house will generally stay warmish. I meant OUTSIDE temp of 60.
Love Noodles

Hi Noodles! I envy your perfect California weather. Wish I could visit sometime. But I'm super happy that you got to enjoy a walk and didn't mind the cold while exploring!

Nodless amiguinho querido..
Que pena que ainda está frio, para um Californiano como voce, deve ser ruim mesmo. Mas logo o sol aparece e tudo fica lindo.
Obrigada por estar sempre presente em meu blog e recados lindos.

Fica com o Papai do Céu.
Aus 1000 e Beijos 1000 das amigas que te amam muito e com carinho do Brasil ...

Noodles, I usually just fake that I'm overly tired whenever my 'rents want to take me on a walk during inclement weather. Although it sounds like you quite enjoyed your chilly walk - sometimes that brisk weather can perk you up! :)

Oh my pug! My humans are from California too and they feel the same way. I'm from Messssoorruum so I think its not that bad right now. :) You are such a smart pug to recognize that orange tree!
