My work closed all branches of its offices today just after noon, because of inclement weather. I was working at home, where it didn’t start snowing until after 5 p.m.
The last time we had any snow to speak of, it snowed very heavily starting at 8 p.m., and the weather guys told us it would all be gone by morning.
I let Isis out that night, hoping to see her romp around in the snow like she loved to do. She used to race from one end of the yard to the other. Rob’s dad said she was trying to put her feet in every inch of it. She’s always loved the snow. It snowed the first week she was with us, and despite being born in Southern California, she was a snow dog at heart.
She didn’t race around in it that January night, but I got out my camera to take her picture in it, because I knew I wouldn’t have another chance in the morning.
I believe those were the last pictures I took of Isis. And it was her last snow.
Fortunately, I took her picture after all the other snowstorms too.
