The people from PETA would like to retire the groundhog as our traditional “barometer” of Spring, saying a robot would be better suited for the job. We have a better idea. The Chocolate Lab! It is naturally comfortable around people, it doesn’t mind being woken up on a cold February morning and will (for a treat) pose for photos! Move over Punxsutawney Phil and Wiarton Willie there’s a new girl in town!
We didn’t see our shadow, but that doesn’t mean anything. It’s Canada and winter ends sometime in April – shadow or no shadow.
