Our Snow is VANISHING!

We thought our snow was thin last year, but this year is even worse!  And yes, I know everyone east of Colorado would be More Than Happy to trade winters with us; we're not trying to drool in your kibble, we are just amazed at how little snow we got this winter, and how quickly it has melted.  Mom and Dad even broke out the bye-sickles today, since their cross-country track has pretty much become a golf course again...

So, we ask the question posed by generations of folk singers:  Where have all the snowflakes gone?

"Gone to slushballs, every one..."
We have had a few snow flurries here and there, but this time of year, the snow doesn't stay long, so our yard is becoming a bit 'mushy'.

Note the big patches of no snow!

And even bigger patches of no snow...
But we are still managing to have fun!

We have also been humoring Mom in her photographic endeavors...

I'm being all dramatic-like!

Mom was playing around with two flashes and got some nifty pictures - she even managed to make Abby look innocent!

Abby, in the dark - nothing new there!  Heehee!

A mug shot?  Really?  What did I do?  You really should be talking to Abby...

"Hi Mom!"

Why, yes, that is a bit of slobber.  Mom was using particularly tasty bribes!
Well, we have been mostly cooperating.  Mom thought she'd get some 'St. Patrick's Day' photos.  Yuh.  We were seriously not interested.

"Really?  Seriously, Mom?  We love you, but any holiday that celebrates leprechauns is just weird."

*heavy sigh*
But when the torture photo shoot finally ended, Abby managed to find the pot of gold bag of treats!  And she shared!  Yum!

Have a great week!

Glad to see you girls are making the most of the lack of snow. I have ZERO snow in my yard and the flowers are even coming up. It is nutty I tell you.

I'm concerned about these portrait photos with Abby's oddly small snooter. It makes it harder for me to determine which of you I am looking at.

I understand you are considering alternate landscaping due to your dust bowl. Might I suggest rubber? It would help you with your acrobatics.

At least you got some snow this year - so much nicer to play in than ice. Those are pawsome photos

You girrrrls could have come HERE and had all the snow you would EVER have wanted.

I think the snow makes you jump higher. You guys are so cute
Happy St. Patrick's Day

I love those portraits!
I don't love disappearing snow. It's actually been HOT here, off and on. Then thankfully cold. Then HOT. It's crazy here in Kansas.

The Thundering Herd said...

All we dogs who love snow so much should band together and pass a law requiring year round snow! Wait - have to go check on the hu-dad. He is groaning about something.
