Where's my snow?!?

The perky weather person on teevee promised me snow. Lots of snow. And the radar looks promising.

I should mention that we live just north of the 'e' and the 'C' on the 'Salt Lake City' part of the map.

In fact, I was planning to throw a big sleep-over with all my Sibe friends. I anticipated snow ball fights, snow person making contests, and general frolicking in the snow. Mom even brought up some wood so we could have a fire and sip hot-toddies. But what do I get?!?

Rain. Lots of rain.

And mud.

And Mom isn't too keen on Abby and me frolicking in the mud; something about how my darling little sister would end up as a giant mud ball. Hmm. I have no idea how that could ever happen.

So, while we can go outside independently, and maybe, if Mom can find some rain gear (sort of like reindeer, but, I'm told, totally different.), we'll go on a walk. But mostly, we'll amuse ourselves with indoor bitey-face, and staring longingly outside for snow...

While we're waiting for snow, go vote for my new name tag (on the upper right hand of this page)!!! Don't forget that the individual who submitted the winning tag line will get a donation to his/her favorite animal charity, so vote early and often!!!

Oh, and Mom seems to think her latest cross-stitch effort is funny. I think it's funny because she didn't specific WHICH doggie did it! Heehee!

Woof indeed!

Snow? I don't know about snow yet. Is it fun?

We had hail last week. Does that count? It was painful.

Hey! Aren't you two water dogs? Tell mom to suck it up and get out there in the mud with you.

Snow! It's 60 degrees here, but I am sure winter will soon be on its way.

Your pal, Pip

Emma says she wants long haired dogs to stop wishing for snow. Charlie says she's just being a big baby. And I love your cross-stitch!

Hey there, shut-ins! We've had some great fall weather here, but we are dreading the arrival of snow! I'll take mud any day (mom isn't quite in agreement, but so what)! Anyways, we finally voted on your tag line, can't wait to see how it turns out!
