Gus had important work to do outside. he checked the whole yard for critters. most appear to be hibernating. we got to watch a woodpecker which gus considered climbing up the tree to meet. they're so fast, he wouldn't have come close. but then grandpère came out to look at a leak we discovered in the well house. gus ran over to help. then he wanted to keep investigating but my nose was so cold! we did one more lap then i made him come in for lunch. oliver would like to remind you that it's monday so new case files have been posted at amberunmasked.
