More Snow

Hmm. Haven't I used that title before? Yeah, I thought so, too. Maybe I should change it to something more interesting, like "Bat Child Found Alive in Mummy's Tomb - Pictures Inside!". But that would set me up for a Dennis-like bloggie entry, and Mom is muttering something about having stuff to do other than play around with Photoshop for me all day. *sheesh*

So, 'More Snow' it is.

Dad has been playing around with his snow removal toys...

We were up on the porch, steathily barking at Dad when Mom got this picture. Hey. We're dogs. We're supposed to alert the staff when there are strangers in the yard....

Luckily it is not all-work-and-no-play for us; Abby and I have had a few opportunities to frolic in the winter wonderland that is our yard.



We have also been trying out some dance moves. Our Most Graceful friend, Honey the Great Dane is truly an excellent dancer. Seriously. She's in competitions and stuff, and she is AMAZING. Go on, check out this link; I'll wait : http://bighoneydog.com/2010/11/chinese-dance/

See? For a big, long-leggedy gal, she's QUITE the dancer!

Anyhoo, Honey has inspired us to try out a few moves of our own. However, unlike Honey who has her Mom for a partner, my Mom has two left feet, and so I've had to resort to dancing with Abby. (Which is kind of like 'Dancing with the Stars' but totally different.)

Unfortunately, we both want to lead...

Since we both want to lead, one of us invariably mis-steps and then we end up clinging to each other in an attempt to keep our balance...


And once we get to this point, it never ends well...

And from here, well, you know where it goes from here...

So, we may leave the competitive dancing to Honey and other more talented doggies. Not that we won't continue to try, because anything that ends up in bitey-face can't be all bad!

*kissey face*

You guys are the best!

Momma could have called it "Dance of the Sugar Plums"!

Two left feet is a good thing in our world. Snow is fun to play in, when you roll in it you don't get yelled at when you come in the house like you do when you roll in mud.

I want a toy like your dad has. Not because we have snow, but just because it's cool.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh - you're making me blush, Fiona! I thought your dancing moves looked great! Lots of energy! It looked like a snazzy version of a doggie jive! Hee! Hee! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Will just say...anything in the snow is AWESOME! Keep up the dance-move-bitey-face maneuvers there! :)

OK, 5th picture down. Looks like Abby was trying to bury you in the snow - we were quite alarmed!! The rest of it looks like fun, though! We are supposed to get some white stuff here this weekend, hard to believe since it was 70 degress a few days ago. Crazy Ohio weather, I tell yas.....
