We had all that late snow dumped on us last week or whatever, but yesterday and today it melted about as fast as you could ever hope for. The ground is even dry in a few spots in the lawn! Small spots, true, but still. The place is also crawling with robins, which I suppose must mean something. Rascal still wants to eat them, and that no doubt contributes to his abysmally bad behavior over the last couple days. Beyond that predatory drive, I think the spring weather itself contributes. I'd say it was hormonal, but since Rascal is a post-op non-sexual that can't be a factor; clearly, the warmer air can have as powerful an effect through psychology as it can through biology. Either that or we're just really bad dog-trainers.
