Wondering where I was all last week? Well we had a massive windstorm here last week, resulting in the largest combined statewide power outage in Michigan history. Over 1 million people lost power. Pretty crazy indeed.
We’re all good now, but I do have to say that having a snuggly Dog is one of the best investments you can make when it comes to staying warm when you lose power. (and maybe a generator if you’re the smart, traditional type)
And I want to take a moment to mention one of the great losses those of us in the pet blog world (and dog lovers in general) had this week. On March 16 Sugar the Golden Retriever from Golden Woofs passed away. My deepest condolences go out to her family, and I want to thank them for sharing her wonderful life with us.
