Sun, Snow and the Donner Party

After a week of snow, more snow, and the Halloween bandanna debacle, Abby and I were ready for the weekend.

Friday and Saturday were both quite warm and sunny, and Abby took advantage of the weather to get in some sunny frisbee action, especially since our snow was rapidly melting.

With a little assistance from the Doodle Launcher!

Is it me, or does Abby look about 7 feet tall in this photo?

The Leaning Tower of Hippobottomus!

Oh yeah!  Frisbees in fall are awesome!

Abby could do this All Day Long!

Abby's not the only Doodle with springs in her leggies!

"Look Ma, no hands!"  Heehee!
We also spent part of Saturday morning at World Market, working on our socialization skills (and getting pets from lots of people).

"Fi, do you think we'll get to taste any of that coffee?"  "Are you kidding?  Mom doesn't want you any more energized than you already are!"

"Smile and look friendly, Abs.  They're hiring for the holidays, and you could earn us some extra bully stick money!"

"Abs, what's 'Bock-wurst'?"  "Dunno.  But you've got a Deutschlander in a bottle.  Is that like Prince Albert in a can?  Heehee!"

"Um, Fi, why am I next to the bottle of Jerk?"  "Lemme think about that... I'll get back to you!"
While we enjoyed the warm sunny weather we had on Saturday, we were really hoping for more snow.  We were very pleased to wake up to a snow storm in progress!  It took Mom about 87 minutes to find her winter walking gear and then we were off!

Snow Doodles!

Snow walkies!
At one point in the walk it was snowing quite hard and it was very windy, and we couldn't really see where we were going.  So Mom starts talking about the Donner Party and how on their ill-fated trip they passed through Utah, only a few miles north of us.  I figured with Abby along, I didn't have anything to worry about!

Biggify the above picture for the full experience.


After we got home (no need to turn Abby into rump roast), we dried off a bit and let Mom warm up at little bit and then we were ready to go out for some frisbee funballs times!

Snow seems to add extra spring to our leggies!

Abby is STILL a long dog!

"Interference!  Where's the ref?"

Jaws of Doom.

More Jaws of Doom.

Mom says I look like a rabbit in this picture.

Yes, there was also some tug-o-war action.  And from the ripping sound I heard, there might be an order of new frisbees in our near future!

Having a warm sunny day and a day of snow was the perfect weekend combination!  It's still snowing lightly, but it should clear out soon - and just be cold - which is okay, too!

What a great weekend you had. A perfect combination weather too. We don't think Abby has a rump roast bottom. Shame on your mama! Bol.

That's what happened to me! I ate BRAT WORST! It wasn't my fault!!

Not sure how tasty that rump roast would be, but with all your frisbee catching, you should be able to hunt down a flying squirrel or two if you ever get lost in the woods.

Love ya lots♥

Can't believe you guys already have snow!!! What fun!!!

Whenever mom and dad can't find any food in the house, they start talking about making puppy soup! I do not find this amusing.

Our snow melted. We only had it for a short while. Mom said that you girls looked like twins in those pics in the store! Of course I enjoyed the frisbee action shots!

Doodles For Peace,
