First Day of Spring and Some Catching Up

First. Today is the first day of Spring!!!

Which, of course, means SNOW!!! Yeah, um, welcome to Utah in Spring!

We only got 4 inches, but at 8am they hadn't plowed the streets in our neighborhood, and it's been really windy, so Mom and Dad decided to stay home with us. Of course they did. What is better than staying home with us? Yuh. I didn't think you could answer that.

I played some tug-o-war with Mom.

I won, BTW!

And, of course, Abby and I christened the new snow with some bitey-face.


And we got some zoomies in, too. (Of course.)

Mom also got about a zillion pictures of us playing with the frisbee. She says that it is essentially 'bitey-face with frisbee' and says that it's sort of like rhythmic gymnastics but, uh. Nevermind. Apparently I'm not allowed to repeat Mom's comments about rhythmic gymnastics. I guess what she means is that we're performing bitey-face with apparatus, and she puts that higher up on her list than rhythmic gymnastics. Whatever that all means. We just like playing with the frisbee.

Of course, we also did a little obligatory posing for Mom.

Mom's a fan of these pictures where she can zoom in so close that she can see my chin hairs in perfect clarity. I have mentioned that Mom is weird, right? Yeah. Anyway.


And if you look closely at this picture, you'll see evidence of Abby's latest pruning endeavors. Heehee.

Now, on to the catching up stuff. I got my official judging certificate from MangoMinster. Thanks again for all the hard work, Mango! You can see my certificate on the right hand side of the bloggie, but for those of you getting this by email, here it is!


And, we were able to participate in the kissing booths at the Paws of Peace fundraiser. Which means that Abby and I both got to smooch Mango!!!

We're gonna have Mom frame this picture to memorialize this for all time! Us! Getting to smooch Mango!!! We didn't think this was ever going to happen!

And, because he's got such a cute little snooter, we smooched Pepsi.

Heehee. He's such a little cutie! And it was for a good cause!

And on that note, we're all caught up and must go frolic in the snow!

We keep trying to convince the humans to stand home with us everyday, but something about needing to earn kibble.

The snow really doesn't stop at your part of the world, does it? How I wish there is endless snow field to play zoomies over here, sigh! I love to see your siblings playtime on the snow :)

Licks, hero

So cute! (Mum says that, we do not). We think snow would be so much better than all this rain we have been having. And you guys are AWESOME gymnastic-types! Whoo hooo!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my goodness - I haven't managed to come by for a while suddenly you're both naked!!! :-) Don't you feel the cold??!! (Well,it doesn't look like it from the pictures!)

And I see that lots of my friends in America have started seeing Spring and their snow is melting away...but you guys look like you've still got lots to play in yet! :-)

Slobbers,
