First. This snow stuff. SNOW!!! Wow. This stuff is totally cool. Heehee. Yes, I think I'm funny!
Mom says that when I was Very Little, I was in snow before. I don't believe her. I mean, this snow stuff? I would have TOTALLY remembered it. And I don't remember it. So there is no way that I have seen snow before.
Fi - I beg to differ. You saw snow last November.
Mom says this is me. There is No Way that I was EVER that little. Or that fluffy. But apparently other people have confirmed that this is me. I am trying to get Johnnie Cochran to confirm or deny (or deny that he can't confirm) that this is me. Because I just CANNOT believe that that little Fluff Muffin is me. No Way. No How. And most certainly this isn't me.
I was NEVER that goofy looking. Never. Not possible.
Regardless. Yesterday's snow? OMD!!! Most definitely the most awesome stuff EVER. Admittedly, it took me a couple of tries to shift from being a rear-wheel drive dog to an all-wheel drive dog. I think the button was stuck.
Trying to figure out the all-wheel drive feature!
Note from Fi's Mom: Fiona has these HUGE rear legs, and if we were talking cars, we'd be saying this girl has about 14 inch tires on the rear wheels, with about 600 HP to the rear wheels. However, she's also got some serious 'grippage' on the front paws, as well. And when she puts it all together? Wow. This girl has power. And traction. And yes. I must admit, she took to snow an AWFUL lot faster than she took to water. So I guess we've got a snow dog. She was definitely thrilled with the snow. Who am I to argue with her?
So this snow stuff? BRING. IT. ON!!!
2nd note from Fi's Mom: We live at 7000 feet, and always get an early snow like this, and then typically it warms up and drys out for a while, and then we'll get slammed. But given Fi's strength and enthusiasm, I think it's time to look into skijoring. All of you Huskies: can you give us some hints? Pretty please?!? I think you might have an honorary Husky out here!
TaiChi, however, is slightly less excited about the snow. But at least she's got her heavy winter coat on!
And more excitement that same day?!? Mom was making dinner, and I was barking away, being the good alarm dog that I am. She thought I was barking at squirrels (me?), but when I didn't stop barking, she decided to take a look. And SEE!!! I was alerting her to something INTERESTING!!!
A red fox! How cool is that?!?
Okay. Enough of that. Winter is cool. And Mom and I went on a walk today. The snow has melted on only the east side of things, and it is still cold and all, but it was good.
But then. After the walk?!? Mom did a Mango-esque ROTE. And I. got. to. go. along.!!!!
Unfortunately, unlike Mango's Running Of The Errands (or whatever ROTE stands for), I Did. Not. Get. A. Cookie. I think this is totally unfair.
But Mom says that it is because we only went to the Post Office, and they don't give out dog cookies. The nerve! No cookies at the Post Office! I'd vote for raising postal rates if it meant that they'd start giving out dog cookies.
But, I got to go ride in the
Time for me to go see what I can do about mom's iPod.
