Snow Day!!

Last Wednesday, I was let out of school early because of all the snow. This wasn't scheduled. So I had to call my mom at work. When I came home, I went outside to play with Amy. The snow was almost to her stomach. When she ran, it looked like she was a snow plow. All of the snow came flying!

I have a swing set in my backyard. There is a slide that was covered with snow. I took my sled and slid down the slide. I almost knocked my head on our fire pit. I was screaming even though it was fun.

If you are wondering why I haven't posted in a while, it is because Truffles was put to sleep a week before Christmas. The vet said that he had a tumor in his pouch area that grew so big that it pressed on his heart and he had a stroke. I took him out of his cage two days before he died and he couldn't walk. I was so scared. I didn't know what to do. We put him in the bottom of his cage to sleep. The day he died, I was at school for yearbook staff meeting. I asked my mom how Truffles was doing. She said my dad took him to a small aanimal specialist. When he came back, Truffles was dead. I was so sad. We burried him by my old cat, Genesis. We wrapped him in a towel with bedding and put a carrot in with him. I will never forget about the memories that I had with him.
