Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Mom is grumbling about the commute and Dad is complaining about having to clear the driveway 87 times a day, but those sound like personal problems to us.  We LOVE the snow and we think it should snow, snow, snow!!!

Zoom, zoom, zoom!

It's a good thing Daisy's leggies are getting longer, because the snow is getting deeper!  Of course, it helps that Dad cut a path in the backyard with the snowblower for us!

One of fun things about the snow? I can tackle little Daisy Cakes and she just gets covered in snow!

Pssst! Behind you!!!

Even this weekend, with a little less snow, I didn't have any problems going after my sister! (Mom is all excited about this, too.  I don't know why. I didn't want to pick on Daisy when she was teeny-tiny, but now that she is larger, and the ground is a bit softer for her, I'm game to engage in a little bitey-face!

Yeah, I might possibly like the wee beastie - as long as she knows who is in charge!

Enjoy your week!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

It is SO the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and I'm not talking about Christmas or even the holidays in general (although this is a great time of year). I'm talking about SNOW!!! Snow season is definitely the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Mom and Dad were a tad less thrilled about the snow last night when they were driving home from dinner last night in a blizzard and almost missed the freeway exit (on a road they've driven thousands of times!).  But whatever. The leftover steak made it home safely, so all was well!


Back to the snow!


And it turns out that the Bandersnatch is a snow dog, too!  (Good thing, too!)

Well, it's generally a good thing.  She still needs to learn that my frisbees are MY frisbees.  But if she has her own frisbees, that's okay. It's certainly better than her bitey-ing my leggies (which is apparently part of the breed standard for Bandersnatches...)

At least my long leggies can keep her away from my frisbees for now.

However, the wee beastie is learning about sneak attacks. I guess it's a Bandersnatch thing...

I am teaching her my ballet moves!

And I'm trying to stay out of range of those Puppy Jaws of Doom!

Ahhhh! She's got me!!!

But for now, I'm able to usually keep my frisbee away from the wee Bandersnatch!

We had a great time in the snow!

Dad had a wee bit less fun, as he had to clear the driveway, but hey, we have to be able to go on our walkies, and some doggies still have short leggies!

Speaking of Miss Bandersnatch with the Short Leggies, she got her first Puppy Grooming yesterday and she's all floofy-like.

So yeah, we're loving the snow!!!

Have a great weekend, and we hope you are able to enjoy The Most Wonderful Time of the Year with your humans!

So This Happened Today

This afternoon Mom was getting packed for tomorrow's shoot at the animal shelter when Dad called to her that there was a big dog at the back door. Since "big dog" can be code for anything from mooses to, well, canines, Mom came up to see what we were barking at.

Our visitor was, in fact, a big dog.  A handsome Golden Retriever who had gotten lost while hunting deer.  Mom and Dad noticed that he had burrs in his Golden furs, and let him inside.

Hi! I see you have snacks! And toys!
He must have seen one of my open invitations to doggies, moose, deer and other such inhabitants of our neighborhood to drop by for impromptu playdates.

Daisy and I both took to him immediately, and I greeting him with much enthusiastic barking, while Daisy tried to jump up and say 'hi'.  He took it all in stride, and was perfect happy to help relieve us of our snacks and play with our toys.

I see you have snacks up there!
Mom and Dad were able to find his phone number and address on his tags and called his parents, who were very thrilled to hear that Strider was safe.  Apparently Strider and his family are recent transplants from Atlanta, and Strider doesn't really know the neighborhood very well yet.

You can see that he picked up some burrs during his travels.

We all agreed that inspite of his burrs, he was very handsome, well-mannered, and just generally a genial chap.  Of course we shared our snacks with him!

We are glad that we were able to help reunite him with his parents!  But we also hope we see him again (hopefully more planned next time) as he was a great guy to have over for some fun times!

And yes, we love happy endings!

A Week in the Life

Yet another week with the Puppy Monster.  She is getting bigger, which means I have to start running even faster!

In the immortal words of King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, "Run away!"

Unfortunately, the wee beastie's leggies are getting longer, and she's getting faster...

Do you see that crazy look in her eyes?  Yeah.  She's crazy!

But getting speedier....
She's also a tennis ball hog!

And she likes rolling around in the leaves (because she's crazy!)...

Luckily there are times when Mom keeps Daisy's sharp bitey-teeth away from me, and I can relax for some good photos, where I'm not running away!

And I do get some zoomie time.

Although, do you see that land shark peeking into the frame on the left side?!?
The only consolation is that Mom did put Daisy in a great Halloween costume!

Heehee! She looks like she's in a Charlie Brown cartoon!
Of course, Crazy Cakes also insists on posing so she looks all cute and innocent....

Have a great week, and wish me luck in staying ahead of those bitey teeth!
