Snow! (Finally!)

Just this last weekend, we were frolicking in the sun, catching frisbees with abandon,

 and zooming around the yard in fun times fall zoomies....

All the while, we were wondering where our early-season dose of white stuff was.   I mean, usually by this time of year, we've had at least a dusting of snow.  But not this year.  At least not until last night, when we finally started to see a few flakes falling from the sky...

 And by this afternoon, we had some measurable snow (but not enough to create issues with Mom's commute - for which she was quite happy!).

And when Mom got home, we went out and test out the first snow of the season.

 Seriously, bitey-face is ALWAYS better in new snow.  Just trust us on this one!

Woo-hoo!  Snow zoomies!

Yes, I do look rather stunning with a snowy backdrop, if I do say so myself!

Yes, Abby took advantage of the snow to do what she does best!  (Biggify at your own risk - apparently this picture has caused uncontrollable desires in some people to give snooter kisses to snowy-snootered dogs!  Okay, fine.  I'll admit it; Abby's doing her cute thing!)

"Please, sir.  Can we have some more?"
It's a little unclear if we are going to get more snow or not (the weather-guessers say yes, but the radar looks a little empty at the moment), but it's supposed to stay cold for a couple of days, so we might get a few more chances to enjoy the first snow of the season!

Fall in Park City
 And for those of you pups who would like some early snow, (you know who you are, Khyra, and the Herd, to name a few) we'll get the rubber band wound up on AirFiona and headed you direction, so you can enjoy the white stuff with us!

Just the right amount of snow to bring about mental zoomie bitey face, but not enough to distress the humans. Even still, I'm not jealous. I'll just enjoy your photos and keep my paws crossed that our snow holds off for another month or so.
