We have Warp Speed!*

Heh!  Mom has finally re-installed everything on her computer, so the ship has been righted.  Also, fearing a loss of irreplaceable** bitey-face-in-snow pictures, Granny and Grandpa bought Mom a 2TB (yes, that would be terabyte) external hard drive as an early birthday present, so Mom can back up ALL our bitey-face photos!  And 2TB should hold A LOT of bitey-face photos!  Thanks, Granny and Grandpa!

So, a few things to catch-up on.  First, for those of you who might not have been paying close attention, Abby took 3rd place in the Working Stiff class at Mango Minster!  

While I'm impressed with Abby's mastery of the blarney (seriously... did you read her entry?), and I'm proud that she placed (the competition was Very Tough!), I'm equally pleased that a REAL working dog won the class!  And, of course, I was thrilled to judge the Too Darn Cute category (and even more thrilled to see that Miss Mollie Jo won Best in Show!)  As always HUGE thanks to Mango and the Mango Momma for putting on the Greatest Dog/Critter Show in the Universe!

We also finally got some more snow, and Mom finally took some pictures of us.  While Mom seems to like her SuperNerdy job, it really cuts into her picture taking time... However, she did get over 200 pictures of us this weekend, so I can't complain TOO much... 

We continued to test the tensile strength of the frisbees...

And we got in a little frisbee snow zoomie time...

And there was much Sisterly Love expressed...

Serious Sisterly Love time!


And yes, there were snow zoomies for the sake of snow zoomies! 

We did sit still for a moment or two, so Mom could snap a picture of us 'hanging out'.  Heheh!

Happy weekend to everyone!

*Well, where 'warp speed' means Mom will be posting once a week.

**Irreplaceable in the sense that no bitey-face-in-snow picture is exactly the same; they're like snowflakes - we get lots of snow every year, but each snowflake is different... Or so we're telling Mom!

Howdy Fiona and Abby, congratulations Abby on your third place. Woo hoo. Mango Minster is just fab isn't it! Glad your computer is on warp speed. Beam us up Scotty hehehe. Two terabytes? Ha! Bet it won't take your mum long to fill that. They only hold about 87 squillion photos. Take care all. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
