You WILL NOT BELIEVE What Happened This Week

This is NOT A JOKE.  Seriously.  In the middle of this last week, we got snow!!!  Even though we are in the mountains and have been known to have some wacky weather, by mid-June we usually assume we are done with snow until at least September... But apparently Mother Nature decided to play a joke on us.

It didn't last long - the snow didn't even stick around for 24 hours, but we made the best of it.


Snow?  Really?  Even we aren't completely amused.

So, Mom... When do we get to go play in the snow?

Snowballs in June!

Jaws of Doom!

I had a vet appointment most of Wednesday, but there was enough snow left when I got home that I could catch some snowballs, too!
And Mom took advantage of the inclement weather to get some 'dramatic' shots.



And we got some indoor squeaky ball time!

Jaws of Doom!

Popeye!

Baby bird!

I think Mom forgot to pay the gravity bill this month...

Seriously.  Look at my ears; no gravity here!
Heehee.

Mom also decided that this was the week to start seeing if she could get a photo of both - or either - of us holding a flag in our mouth(s) - in preparation for a 4th of July photo shoot.  Well, lemme tell ya... The only thing I like holding in my mouth is a tennis ball. So Mom improvised....

 

Mom says we need to keep trying.  I say as long as there are treats involved, I'm willing to try some more!

The rest of the week has been spent in the usual tennis ball related activities.




















So yeah, we've had an exciting week!

Uh... yeah... have to agree with Scruffy & pals. Crazy good photos. I mean really, really great! Your photographer has stepped up her game. I'm not very inspired these days to blog, but if I was, I think I'd be embarrassed to post any pics. You (and a few others) are putting the rest of us to shame. But then I take my own photos (selfies they're called) so maybe I shouldn't be so hard on myself... and if I ever see snow here in JUNE, I'll be looking to relocate ASAP.
