It's about TIME

I noticed that Mom hasn't updated our bloggie, in, like, EVER.  When I asked her about it, she was all like, "I've been so busy.  And there hasn't been anything interesting going on."  Nothing interesting?  Hello?!?  Just because Mom works all the time doesn't mean that we aren't doing fun stuff.  We've had doggie classes, we've had warm weather, we just got a ton of snow.  How is this 'nothing interesting'?  With that calmly presented reasoning, Mom agreed that perhaps she had been slacking a wee bit, and would rectify the situation forthwith.

So...  From our last post of snow, it got really warm (60F+) for a while, and all our snow melted, which made for funballs melting snow times and funballs doggie classes.

Looking all attentive at doggie class while our last snowfall was melting.
Bitey-face in melting snow.  That grumbling you hear in the background is Mom talking about 'mud'.

More funballs doggie class time
For those of you who have been wondering, we are continuing our doggie education in the hopes of eventually being awarded a Ph.D. in Sucking Up for Treats.  Heehee!

And we got in some funballs frisbee time in the warm fall weather.

And, of course, there were plenty of fall zoomies.

Mud zoomies!

But, as you all, know, there are NO zoomies like snow zoomies!  And winter finally came (back) to Utah, dumping almost 2 feet of snow at our house from Friday to mid-day Sunday.


And Dad got to play with ALL his snow toys over the course of the weekend...

Saturday morning before our doggie class...
Mid-day Sunday.
Apparently Dad isn't super thrilled when he gets to pull out all his snow toys, multiple times.  Huh.  Imagine that!  Heehee!  But you did a great job on the driveway, Dad!

Despite the inclement weather on Saturday, Mom chauffeured us to doggie class on Saturday.  It was still snowing when we went to class, but luckily Mom's little car is a good snow car, and we got to doggie class safe and sound.  Which was a good thing, as unbeknownst to us, there were two youngsters who were finishing up their 'Puppy 1' class, and were getting a taste of what future classes might be like.

The youngsters (both 6 months old) were a tad wild and crazy for my taste, so I took advantage of my sister's ample bottom and hid while she schooled the youngsters.

Crazy little labragal!
Of course, the class was not all bitey-ing.  There were a whole bunch of tasks to 'complete' throughout the store, and we were able to show off our higher edjumacation.

'Down for 15 seconds'?  Piece o' cake!
There were lots of other people and doggies in the store, so we had a great time.  And Mom had a fun time playing around with Photoshop settings...

Olde fashioned doggeys!

While we were having fun, the pups were, well, being crazy puppies...

Puppy Jaws of Doom!  (We were NEVER that young.  Well, Abby might have been, but I certainly never was!)
But lest you think our younger companions were total doofuses, we feel compelled to post at least one picture of them behaving, especially the labragal, who was such a suck-up!


Anyhoo, after doggie class, we spent more time frolicking in the snow (and then coming in and melting...).  And then on Sunday we went on a walkie while Dad cleaned off the driveway (again).

Yep, looks like winter again...
And then in the afternoon, we spend more time frolicking in the snow.


There was actually so much snow that we got a little bogged down at times.  (And lost two frisbees... Good thing Mom has a number of Emergency Backup Frisbees!)

Snow doggie!
But this snow stuff?  PAWSOME!!

C'mon Mom.  Let's play!!!
Now that the storm is over, the temps are going to be quite cold (it's currently 11F, and is expected to get close to 0F tonight...).  I guess winter is here!  At least for a bit!

I hope you don't lose too many Frisbees in the snow. Otherwise you will have to wait until spring to play with them again. You two sure look like you were having fun.

Well, we love it when you guys get all the snow cause that means we will have water down here next summer.

We got a little of that snow too but it all melted. But it is back to being very very cold tonight.

I betyou guys are cozied up to a fire. We are a little jelous of that, but our heater works good so we are warm too.

Here is wishing for more snow.

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

I still can't believe you have so much snow so early in the year! We're lucky to get one good snow in January (and for us a good snow is maybe 6 inches). Looks like you have SO much fun! And what's better than snow, melting snow, MUD, then more snow?

You're doing great in your classes and it looks like you are well on your way to your Ph.D.!

your pal,

Sam said...

I get cold just looking at all that snow! Yikes! Mom doesn't think she could drive in it, the one time it snowed on her car (like two whole flakes) she panicked and got lost.

Mommas always have excuses for everything. We love watching you guys play bitey face in the snow.

Hey, ladies! We also suffer with a sub-performing assistant, so we're not getting around to read our friends' blogs as much as we'd like. At least mama gets us fed on time, so at least she's still getting the really important stuff done.

You have our permission to keep ALL that snow out West with you. You need it to stop forest fires next summer and stuff, and we don't need it at all.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Yeah right girls. Not much happening with you two!!! As usual we love all your photos, especially your school ones. We have NEVER been in a shop so we think you are so cool and smart. Take care sweetie pies. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Love and miss you Abs and Fi -- glad you've been having lots of fun, and that you helped Mom get her priorities straight :)

Your momma's negligence of you blog is only matched by MY momma's negligence or helping me to read blogs. Imagine that it is almost a week since you posted this and I am just reading it now.

I am amazed and delighted at the plethora of funtimes you two have had. Snow, sun, frisbee, puppies, noms, what a great life.

I wanted to tell you that my Master gets a wee bit grouchy when he has to play with his snow machines too. I'm not sure why that is, but there you go.
