Groundhog Weather Predictions

My humans do not like the latest groundhog forecast by Punxsutaney Phil.  He is predicting 6 more weeks of winter instead of an early spring.  I like the forecast because we huskies happen to enjoy cold weather.  After several mild winters, Mother Nature has finally listened to this dog's complaints and sent a nice winter which I have been enjoying.  It is about time that she listens to dogs because the humans are going to complain about the weather no matter what it is.  In the summer, it is too hot, in the winter, it is too cold; and when it is "just right", they complain about something else.  There is just no pleasing the humans so it is best to please the dogs. 

My humans decided since they didn't like Phil's forecast to check with Michigan's official groundhog named Woody who lives locally at the Howell Nature Center.  It does make sense since Pennsylvania could have a longer winter and Michigan could be having an early spring.  However, much to the humans chagrin, Woody stood with Phil, and he says we will be having 6 more weeks of winter.  That will give the humans something about which to complain.  This dog is pleased, and I plan to send Woody a thank you note.  Sometimes groundhogs can make a dog very happy!  Here is the link to Woody's information:
