JUANA: We had a full crew and it was supposed to be one of the last warm days in a while. The next few days are supposed to be very cold and right now I am very cold. We will talk about how cold it was today, which is Saturday, on tomorrow’s show. We are always watching the forecast and, half of the time, we don’t rely on it. No one really knows what is going to happen. But this time, we were listening to the forecast and we were getting prepared.
I didn’t get any pictures in the morning, because I was trying to focus on getting our shelters winterized. Wayne and I changed all of the light bulbs in the heating lamps, because the light bulbs from last year weren’t working. And I put four new heating lamps out. I am a pretty good electrician. We put one in Charlie’s shelter, one in Mario and Judy’s shelter, one in Thunder and Storm’s shelter, and one in Leonardo and Reyna’s shelter. We put one in the Chihuahuas’ shelter too.
BILL: These help, but we are also looking into having heated doghouses for our outside dogs. I have been researching them and they are about $100 each. We will try and raise some money to buy some. It’s probably cheaper in the long run than what we are doing now.
JUANA: We also put a heating lamp in Spencer and Gina’s shelter. We connected them all and we were “ready.” On Saturday, we still had a lot of front boards to install.
BILL: They got to stay in the park for two hours, because we really don’t have a schedule in the new park yet.
We put up about five or six boards that day and then I had to go and finish my chores and give out medicine. We finished putting up the rest of the front boards on Saturday. Every single shelter has a winter front board, which should help to protect them from the cold winter wind.
BILL: We’ll close the show and be back again tomorrow with another report from Straydog.
