Goose Feathers & Dogs

Years ago I bought this wonderful down comforter. You know, the kind with a ton of the lightest and fluffiest goose feathers available. With our recent cold spell I thought it would be a great time to bring it out and put it on the bed to help keep our toes warm in the middle of the night.

The dogs loved the comforter, in hindsight, maybe too much. Yeap, you know where I'm going with this day last week we came home to a floor COVERED in these fine, light and fluffy feathers. We're not talking a few of 'em. Nope, they were ankle deep! You guessed it, a dog or two became a bit obsessed with our warm covering!

When you tried to gather up the feathers, they'd flutter away. Any air motion sent them flying to another part of the house and soon they were well beyond the initial bedroom. We were laughing so hard, the dogs would come in and sure enough, our light-as-air feathers would whisk away, often landing on the back of a dog or two. The best part is when the furnace kicked on and our fuzzy feathers would fly up to the ceiling and slowly float down. We weren't sure if it was snowing inside, outside or both!

Any way, here we are on day 5 of our feather collection and I'm amazed at where they're showing up and in such quantities! I should have taken a picture...darn it!
