More Snow!

Yeah, really. More snow. Go figure! Heehee.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts about my itchies (and sorry to anyone who left the post feeling itchy!)! I am feeling better, and I am 'tapering off' the meds. I'm not itchy any more, and the prednisone is making me pee alot (and Mom is getting a little tired of waking up at 2am and then again at 5am to take me out) so I'm taking less and less of the pills, and Mom is hoping that I'll stay non-itchy even without the pills. Mom is going to keep some on hand, though, so if I get the itchies again, I won't have to wait 12 hours to see the vet to get more.

I'm still a little sleepy, but we've had tons more new snow, and I've been able to go out and frolic in it. Mom's been slacking a bit in posting pictures (something about how she's got 'other stuff to do' - I don't know what could possibly be more important than posting pictures of me...), so here are some pictures from the last couple of days.

As usual, Abby and I have been doing zoomies.

A lot of zoomies!

And we've been bitey-ing each other.

And apparently Gumby somehow donated some DNA to Abby...

Heehee. Abby may be bigger than me, but I can still take her by the scruff of the neck!

Abby's also been sitting in the snow (she's good at it, and I think you should always go with your strengths!).


Mom also got some 'art photos' of us. 'Cause Mom can't let us outside without having the flashy beast in her hands, and we need to keep her amused.


Oh, and for those of you who are wondering how our new metal roof has been working out? Mom was shoveling snow from where it slides off the roof, and noticed that it was still sliding. Since the flashy beast is always close at hand, she stopped shoveling to get this picture....

So if you were curious, the snow if sloughing off the roof nicely. And it gives Mom the chance to shovel snow several times after a storm!

And in other snow-related matters, Dad's a bit grumbly because the motor that lifts the plow up and down on the ATV broke yesterday (like REALLY broke - the entire casing and everything came off) and he had to do the driveway with the snowblower. And we've got a BIG driveway...

The good news is that the ATV part is still available (it could have been sold out at this time of year; most of the country has put away their snowplows...) and it should be fixed next week. The bad news is that it is supposed to snow again tomorrow...

Now it's time to go play in the snow some more before dinner!

That is a really neat picture of the snow coming off the roof. Your mom caught it just in time.

Sigh... I have snow coming tomorrow too. Not like YOU girrrls have it... butt remember that your legs are like 87 inches LONGER than mine.

Aren't you tired of this stuff yet?

Is it record snow amounts for you guys this year, or maybe before we didn't know how much it snowed there because you were in the house on wheels in warmer climates during winter? Your humans are troopers!

We think we may have seen the last of the snow, not here where we never get any, but in our mountains where we keep it. Fifty feet of it has been too much for us to even go into the mountains to visit it.

As always, fantastic action shots! Glad we don't have your snow:-)

We have new snow this morning, too. Ok, so it can barely cover the ground and will be gone after the sky gets up in the sky (oh, and we are totally bored with it), but it still counts.
