Cinnamon has S.A.D.

See, don't I look sad on this rainy day?
It's wet. It's raining and I just want to stay indoors. I go outside only for the bare necessities. I go as quickly as possible.

When I left Santa Fe, my home, we were in the midst of a multi-year drought. I was used to dry, sandy terrain. I was used to sun. Once in a while it snowed. But that was alright because it was NOT WET! But this stuff in the Pacific Northwest is really wet. And, to add insult to injury, the wind blows 40 m.p.h. and blows the rain right into my fur.

All I feel like doing is sleeping. It's been dark outside for two days. It rains most of the time and I haven't seen the sun in those two days. I haven't been to the dog park and I haven't been out walking because my owner went wine tasting near McMinnville. I'll bet it was SUNNY there!

So what will this first winter in the Pacific Northwest bring me? Right now I feel Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) coming on BIG TIME

And to top it off, I still don't have my bed back and am sleeping on a quilt.  I think I'll go back to sleep now!

Love, Cinnamon on her quilt coming down with S.A.D.


  1. First world dog problems. Suck it up, Cinnamon! As my mom would say, there are starving dogs in China ;) But seriously, you are loved!

  3. Cinnamon, I hate to tell you this, but I'm visiting Santa Fe (as we speak --- so to speak) and it is beautiful.

  4. Cinnamon, I can relate to your S.A.D. I get that also! It's beginning to cool down in Arkansas, and I am not a fan of cool! I am happier with heat, sun, and humidity!

Thanks for your comment. Love, Cinnamon
