Being up here in the Pacific Northwest "Snow Zone" has been loads of fun. Snow, freezing rain, sleet, wind, we've had it all. While the humans in Portland may be complaining (well, not me, I've been snowed in since Thursday and I love it!), the dogs are of a different opinion entirely about the cold white stuff.
We had what we thought was a decent amount of snow on Friday 12/19. which the dogs enjoyed thoroughly:
I was surprised the long-term guest-dog Max enjoyed the snow as much as he did, considering a) how short his fur is, and b) he won't keep his coat on. :)
Then came the Sunday Storm. By yesterday (12/22), we had a lot of snow on the ground, and some pretty deep drifts. Whoo boy, the dogs were in puppy heaven. Even our old man, Collin the Wonder Aussie, was scampering and playing. A good time was had by all:
Today brought new joy: A squirrel! A squirrel! Oh boy oh boy, a SQUIRREL!
The poor little guy was at the feeder nearest to Abby when I put the dogs out. Oops! Nowhere to go but up!
So he sat at the top of the cherry tree and barked madly at the dogs, who were barking madly right back at him.
He stayed up there for almost an hour after I brought the dogs back in. Probably took that long for his little heart to stop pounding. Poor squirrel! Happy dogs! :D
