On Friday morning, we woke up to snow!!!
|Friday 4:45am, Abby surveying the snow|
|We thought Mom would be happy to allow us to play in the snow before she went to work, but apparently she was all into hustling us back inside. What a kill-joy!|
|"How long do you think this will stick around?" "Noon. Maybe."|
When Mom got home from work, she took us on a walkie, and we checked out the remnants of the snow, and the last of the fall colors.
|"We'll be doing snow zoomies in no time!"|
|"Abs - the longer you look grumpy, the longer we'll have to sit here." "Mom will give in. Trust me."|
While most of our snow was gone by Saturday, we were still able to get in a little early-season frisbee funballs in snow.
The key to a great season of Winter Frisbee Funballs is early season training, and we got in a great session!
By Sunday, most of our snow was gone but Mom kept looking across the canyon, talking about how the fall colors would be gone soon...
|Aforementioned fall colors.|
|"Follow me, Abs! I was hiking these trails with Mom when you were nothing more than a thought!"|
|Wheee! Snow! Fall leaves! Moose tracks! It doesn't get any better than this!|
|Onward and upward!|
|"Abs, this is a Perfect Sunday Afternoon!" "Yuh. We should demand snowy trails and clear blue skies all the time!"|
|"Why yes, we DO enhance the scenery!"|
|"Yeah, yeah - beautiful trees, beautiful doggies. Now let's get a move on!"|
|"Look at all the snow! And the mud! This is AWESOME!"|
|"Abs, are we The Luckiest Doggies ever, or what?"|
|I can see why Mom wanted to come up and look at the trees before all the leaves fall off!|
|"C'mon Mom! There are trees to be seen and mud puddles to be explored!"|
|"Follow the muddy brick road!"|
|Did I mention that we are Super Lucky doggies?|
|Mom keep looking up and oohing and aahing at the trees and the sky, so we let her take a picture that didn't include us. But only one!|
|"Abs, stick with me - we'll find the best mud!"|
|"And the best snow!"|
|"We should do this more often!" "Definitely!"|
|"This was a Totally Pawsome hike!" "Totally. Maybe Mom will take us snowshoeing this winter."|
AND, it wore the Hippobottomus out.
At least for a little bit. Which is all anyone can hope for.
Because she'll be back to this in no time...
