New Snow!

We have had a series of storms in the last couple of days (which is a good thing, because we had some days in the high 40s.... and we were losing a lot of snow), and Abby and I have been taking full advantage of the new snow. We got some new snow yesterday, it cleared up for a while, and then by the afternoon it was starting to snow again.

And (say it with me....) bitey-face in new snow is ALWAYS fun.

Lookit those toofies on Abby. I think she needs braces! Heehee.

Frisbee time is always good when it's snowing, too.

So, as the snow began to fall again yesterday afternoon, I did my best to make sure that all of the towels in the house were called into action. Heehee.

And then we woke up this morning and it was DUMPING!!!!


We got about 16 inches of new snow, and Abby and I were not going to let any of it go to waste!

We mentioned that bitey-face is always better in new snow, right?!?

This is our Dancing With the Dogs submission.... Heehee!

We only lost one frisbee in the deep snow!

C'mon, Mom. Throw it, already!!!

Yep, frisbee time in new snow is great, too!

So, we say, let it snow! We're having fun!!! And with the holiday weekend, Mom and Dad are avoiding the ski resort, so they are spending lots of time with us!!!!

Heehee. Abby is such a doofus!

Happy snow days to everyone!

PeeEss: For those of you who have been wondering about our snow; we live at 7,000 feet, and we will likely have "measurable" snowfalls until late March, if not April, and we'll probably have 'dustings' into May. As much as Mom complains about "wet dogs", I assure you that she likes us covered in snow much more than when we are covered in dust or mud! Heehee!

Hey there Fiona...

I saw your comment on the Thundering Herd's blog and had to pop by and visit you today. What wonderful pictures of your poochies frolicking in the snow! They look like they are in seventh heaven in their winter wonderland. The 'bitey-face' is simply part of all the excitment, isn't it.

Sending lotsaluv

Momma says she would love to see some mud in our house instead of snow. I saw a couple of golden doodles at the vet yesterday. One was a giant mutant like Abby!

And us poor saps that live at 4500' are suffering from very little snow all February and warm temperatures. It would be depressing, except the humans are smiling for some odd reason. It's ok, we get snow into late March / early April too so we think they are just being suckered into thinking that there will only be one mud season this year.
