Groundhog Day Flash Back!

Just like the movie of the same name, yes, you have seen this before if you were following us last year. We liked the post and decided to post it again. (Plus, we are lazy!)


Happy Groundhog Day All!

I have always had an issue with Ground Hog Day which is celebrated in the U.S. and Canada.  Supposedly, if the groundhog emerges from his burrow and sees his shadow, that means there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, then we will have an early Spring.

Why do I have an issue with Groundhog Day?

Because Spring begins March 20th (some years it  begins on  March 21st),  if you do the math, that is SIX MORE WEEKS OF WINTER regardless (slightly more).  Then, depending on where you live, Spring NEVER starts until after April 14th, (in the Midwest we have had a number of significant snowstorms the first week of April!)...thus making Groundhog Day and the skewed opinion of the Groundhog useless.

Shelties of Spring

When trying to decide what I should blog about on the first day of Spring, my thoughts turned to two Shelties that I know from the DC Shetland Sheepdog group on Facebook.
