Frost Bite

Yesterday morning school was canceled due to the fridgid temperatures. When Brett and I came in at 12:45 am (Monday night/Tuesday early morning) from working on the house, it was negative 22 degrees, not including wind chill. Well by 8:30 Tuesday morning it was still in the negative temperatures, but the wind had picked up, so was super cold. I went out to feed Angel and when I opened the kennel to give her a drink, she pushed right past me and took off. I was so concerned since she ran to the street and was running up and down the road then into my neighbor's property, into their fields, scaring their horses, and NOT listening to me one bit!!!

I was outside for about an hour before I finally caught her and was so happy to get back inside the house and warm up. Later yesterday I happened to look in the mirror and noticed that my cheeks were super red and had all these white bumps all over. I later found out, when Brett came home and was so suprised to see the condition of my skin, that I had gotten frost bite on my face!

It's looking much better today, but I've learned my lesson. If Angel gets out again, I'm leaving her out until she decides to come back home! We absolutely love her, but I do have to say, "DARN DOG!!!"
