Seize the Snow
So we’ve discussed seizing the day… and I suppose an extension of that, and part of Winter 101, is seizing the snow! I know, I know. I’m well aware that I’m taking advantage of this late round of freezing temperatures to post yet another series of gratuitous doggy pictures. But hey… it’s not very often that we get a steady snowfall that lasts for several days, so, when we do, we better make the most of it! Admittedly, I think the doggies enjoy the snow just a bit more than I do. All I have to do is say “go outside?”, open the door a crack, and watch them take off!
Dieter gets a gold medal in the category of craziest leaps and jumps.
Heidi takes home the gold for her mad dashes and tracking abilities.
As I slowly walk around the field, scouting out any new tracks or markings, the dogs whiz through the snow… thanks to their sensitive snouts, they are obviously much more talented at sniffing out any and all overnight guests.
One of the funniest parts of the whole snowy spectacle is watching the doggies slowly generate snowballs of their own.
The snowball around Dieter’s name-tag, for whatever reason, gradually grows in size.
Heidi, however, accumulates a dense mat of snowflake dreadlocks. They don’t seem to bother her too much while she’s out playing in the snow, but the minute she gets back inside, she lays on her bed and carefully rips them off, one by one.
And, yes, for the record, I had fun too! We threw a couple snowballs, which is only fun until your hands start freezing off… made a snow angel… and did the age old trick of “knee-deep snow”. Just don’t laugh at my outfit. I know the neighbors must think I’m crazy, but four layers, including my favorite bright turquoise bathrobe, is my idea of staying warm in the snow.
What are your favorite fun things to do in the snow?
Have a great day, and I’ll see you tomorrow! :)
