Happy, Happy Snow Doggies!

Our week started off with some warm weather, but a cold winter storm came in, and we have been Happy Snow Doggies ever since.  Mom has been grumbling that it is "cold"  (below zero temps at night, single to low double-digit temps during the day); we've been telling her to suck it up.  Winter is here, and we are ready to PLAY!!!!   (Besides, we like to snuggle, and once we've gotten our fill of winter frisbee action, we're always happy to snuggle, even if we are still 'melting'...)

"Why do you want to go to work, Mom?  It's just started snowing, and we're ready for fun!"

"Welcome back from work, Mom!  It's still snowing - let's go play!!!"

"Enough with the flashy beast!  Start throwing the frisbee!"

"Yes, I know there is a frisbee right in front of me.  I want the one in your hand, please."
"Nope.  I'm not cold.  Keep throwing the frisbee!"

"Seriously.  Not cold.  Keep those frisbees moving!"

"Still not cold.  Throw the frisbees!"
The storm was over on Thursday, but it stayed super cold, so our snow stayed wonderfully soft and floofy.  Then, on Saturday we had another storm move it, making for the perfect weekend!

"I got it, I got it!"
"There's no zoomies like snow zoomies!"

"Ho-hum.  Abby can do this All Day Long."

"Mine! Again!"

"Nice throw, Mom!  And just because it's snowing, you can't blame bad throws on the wind!"

My regal pose.
 In addition to all our frisbee antics, we took Mom on lots of walkies to make sure Mom got plenty of exercise and fresh air.
"My schnozz tells me there have been homo sapiens here recently."
"Hey, Mom.  Why doesn't Dad get a BIG plow like that?  I bet it would make his job clearing the driveway go much faster!"

"Fi, are we lost?"  "Naw, just follow me.  And it's not really windy, so I don't think Mom will be making any Donner Party jokes today."

"Why yes, we are a good-looking pair of snow Doodles!"
Throughout the weekend, Mom felt the need to test the 'look' command she uses to get pictures of us.  Sometimes she was more successful than other times!

Snowy schnozz!


Yes, I really do have that soulful eyes thing down, don't I?

"Snow on my snooter?  Really?  Are you sure?"

"Yes, I'm cute.  Now throw the frisbee!"

Mom has about a zillion more snooter shots, but I told her that our audience is WAY more interested in action photos.
Oh yeah!

Good times!
And speaking of action photos, given the very cold temps we've been having, there was some concern that the Doodle Launcher might not perform well in 'extreme' conditions.  However, you will all be happy to know that the Doodle Launcher works well in ALL conditions!


Leapin' Doodles!

I think someone turned the gravity switch to "off"!
We have A TON more frisbee-in-snow photos, but Mom seems to think that having 87 (or so) photos in one post might be a bit too much.  Oh well.  Trust us - we're having a pawsome time in the snow!

You probably already saw that we got snow too. Me and Stanley were playing in it like crazy! I really like it when mom shovels snow and throws it at me. I jump at it and bite at it. Just when we were really having fun we went in the truck and you would not believe where we went . . . The groomer! We thought we were safe on a Sunday but no, mom said she couldn't see our eyes! We kept most of our furs though. Now I need to get my UFO and copy those awesome aerial moves!

Your Pals,

Murphy and Stanley

We got a little bit of snow but nothing like what you have. I went out and did some snow roaching today. Aren't you proud of me? Tell your mom if she is cold she needs to stop by our blog to give her some warm thoughts! I love your snooter pics and your action shots equally.

Good to know the launcher works in the cold. Must have some heavy duty mechanism. But seriously, do you gals never feel the slightest chill?

I like snow, too. I'm working very hard to learn to jump as high as you dogs ...I have a long way to go.

That's what our temps have been like, too! Isn't it great?!?! Only we didn't get as much snow as you lucky girls did.

Dr. Liz - You are my hero! It's been in the 20's here and that is too stinkin' cold for me. I will stop complaining now! We need some Dog Mom awards for the things we do to entertain our fur kids, while normal people are wearing fuzzing slippers and drinking hot cocoa by the fire. Below zero? Let's play frisbee and take walkies :) :) Dog Mom's Rule.
