My brother arrived at Rauhallinen Farm safely, joined by his elderly Schnauzer, Cooper (12). Cooper has not been particularly fond of the cold weather, but is getting along with Benny, four years younger, quite well.
Good morrow, Benedick. Why, what's the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?
~William Shakespeare, Much Ado about Nothing (Act V, Scene 4, Don Pedro)
