Snow Day


We don't often get snow where we live.  But Sunday when we woke up THIS is what we saw from our back door! See the snow on the hill back there?




None of the dogs had ever been in snow before, so being the most adventurous, Gizmo talked me into taking him to check out the white stuff.




Oh yeah Mango and Dexter.  I'm in the SNOW!!




WTF??


 yeah.  I do this all the time...



video

mom's poor attempt at capturing a snow zoomie.  hey, i'm a rottweiler.  i only exert myself for a minute.  the very beginning is the best anyway...note tongue and flapping ears :-)





an homage to K

Bart and Ruby totally gave Giz the Where T F have you been once over when we got back.  Next time.

Loved your video, Gizmo - wish we had some snow for zoomies. All we have right now is mud and that doesn't make for a very happy Momster.

Oh, yes...snow zoomies are the BEST! They're even better when done in slow motion. You know, so you can enjoy it more. I'm awfully glad you got to go out and play in it.

KB said...

That is SO cool. Bart feels snow under his paws for the very first time! Wow. Mango and Dexter - eat your hearts out! And, we love the K photo.

violett said...

I am glad that you could walk in the snow.
Too bad that you will rarely experience it.
This makes a joke!
Lots of love

Love the homages!

Mango said...

I like your zoomie style. Yeah, a few feet is plenty. Don't want to overdue it. As for the snow, it is most challenging to locate a proper potty spot, is it not? You are big adventure dog now, just like K and R.

Slobbers,
Mango

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

So envious! Hope we make it up there tomorrow!

the booker man said...

nice snow! i'm totally jelly. i gotta respectfully disagree with the mango...we need to work on the intensification of your zoomies just a bit. teehee.
