We are having some really foul, early Spring, weather at the moment. It's either freezing bloody cold, snowing, or pouring; not conducive to venturing outdoors too much. Of course the dogs aren't bothered about weather, they just want to be running around, no matter what.
But if the boss says NO, the next best thing is to curl up by the fire, maybe watch an episode of Dog Martin on TV, or just sleep.
And the same goes for me (but not on the floor)!
