I think that when winter ends (for reference, that would be, ah, July) I'm going to count up the number of posts that are entitled 'New Snow!'. Just out of curiosity. Or maybe I'll run a contest of some sort. Hmmm. I'll put the little gray cells to work on this.
So. Um. It snowed all day Monday, but given that it is spring (no, really), it didn't start sticking at our house until about 4pm. Which, coincidentally, was the time that Abby had her annual check-up at the vet. Oooh. Speaking of Abby's check-up, Lard Butt must carry all her weight in her, ah, hips, because she's a paltry 62 lbs. HAH! (I'm 56 lbs, for reference.) However, if she only outweighs me by a little bit, I've got to figure out why she has the smackdown advantage so often. Another task for the little gray cells....
Where was I? Oh, yeah. Monday afternoon the snow started sticking, and when we woke up yesterday morning there was a whole bunch of glorious new snow!!!! For some reason, Dad was less excited about this, as he had to go clear the driveway. But, being the Good Dad that he is, he cut our path in the back yard, first.
Once Dad had cut our path, Abby and I went out back to check out our Winter Wonderland.
The snow passed the Frisbee Test. And of, course, we had to put it to the Bitey-Face test....
We even put the snow through the frisbee tug-o-war test.
Abby had to test the snow for sit-ability.
She seemed to be quite satisfied with belly coolness provided, and gave it 4 paws up. (Or buried in the snow, as the case may be).
She even snuck in a little pruning so that this bush doesn't get Totally Out of Control.
And the snow passed the all-important Taste Test!
In the end, we decided to try some synchronized zoomies to see if the snow would earn our Seal of Approval.
Fantastic snow! We'll take some more, please! :-)
