Hi 2012!

Being fans of Science, we're going to go along with NASA's belief that the world will NOT come to an abrupt end in 2012.   However, the start of the new year brings with it one of the worst snow years in decades for us. Really.  Look in the background of one of our zoomie pictures....

Look at that grass on the side - there's grass all over the place in our yard.  And almost no snow.  This is TERRIBLE!

So, Abby and I thought we might appease the snow gods with a bitey-face snow dance...



I'm not exactly sure if that will appease the snow gods or not, but it was fun!  And we'll keep you posted if we ever get any snow.  I can just hear Granny now: "Be careful what you wish for!"

In keeping with the new year, we decided to bark a lot, to chase away any bad spirits from 2011.  We may not have scared off any spirits, but we got the attention of all the dogs in the neighborhood, who decided to join in the noise making!


Even more exciting that all the bitey-face and barking, however, is the start of Mango Minster 2012!  We are HUGE fans of Mango Minster, and while we might be a wee bit biased, we think Mango Minster is THE BEST DOG SHOW IN THE UNIVERSE.  Seriously.  It is totally awesome!  Entries are open until Feb. 5, but they are only allowing 20 entries per category, so get your entry in soon!  Abby has been really pushing to enter this year, and since the rules say that there can only be one entrant per household, this year is going to be Abby's year!  Look for her entry shortly!

Happy New Year from all of us!

So we really appreciat your snow dance and hope Hope HOPE it works.

I sure hope the snow dance works. Maybe it will work for us too. As Bert said we don't ahev very much at all. And it going to be another week of no snow. I miss making snowballs with my nose.
Maybe I should do a snow dance. Couldn't hurt.

Awesome snow dance, girls! If that doesn't appease the snow gods we don't know what will! Good luck at the Minster!

We'd like to do a snow dance to keep the snow away. Can we do a reverse of your steps?

You should really take that act of yours on the road. I know I'd pay to see it!

Hope your snow dance works; the West is so dependent on snow for its water the rest of the year - like you didn't know that.

Looking forward to seeing The Other Abby in MM2012!

Happy New Year Abby & Fiona. Can you believe I have never seen SNOW in person. I hopes your dance appeases the snow gods and you gets some snow.

Fiona, I understand you are judging Mango Minster's Too Darn Cute category and I wanted to let you know my post is up.
