To the Snow! (Maybe...)

As you all know, Sam and I are quite comfortable in our snow free environment.
(Please note this is a backyard shot - we let the grass die during the winter...)

However, we have enjoyed looking at all the pictures of our friends enjoying the snow! We've talked about bringing Sam and Cisco to play in it, but haven't made it that far north yet. After seeing the perfect snowflake land on Murphy's (Red Dog Romping) fur, Sam decided it was time to go play in the white stuff. Sam wanted to make sure he was prepared in case we decided to go. First, we had to make sure he would stay toasty...

Mom, are you sure this is warm enough?

Sam is still not convinced he wants to go. He has heard it can be wet, which sounds suspiciously like a bath to him. Plus, if he wears my jacket, what am I supposed to wear?


  1. Oh Sam! You are a stitch. What a good boy to wear such warm clothes. You will LOVE the snow. It's a Golden thing!

  2. Aw, c'mon,Sam, the snow is lots of fun. We have been out in it all day. We are sure your jacket and warm cap will do you very well.

  3. You are dressed warm enough. If you play hard that will warm you up too!

  4. You scare me! LOL

    Sam looks very handsome and amazingly comfortable in his hat and coat - although he may need one size smaller!

  5. Don't worry Sam, the snow is nothing like a bath. It's great, you will love it. Tell you mom to take off the coat and let you go play.

  6. We think you will be warm enough!! :)

  7. You should come here for snow, Sam. It was -1 degrees this afternoon. That was just the regular temperature, the wind chill was worse. But we do get snow for you to play in.

    However, I don't think that jacket is warm enough, and I'd feel really, really bad if your poor mom expired while she was here - and I think she would. ;)

  8. Sam, the only question I have is, could you be any cuter?

  9. Sam -

    You are stunning in your fancy hat - have no fear - SNOW IS THE BEST - and since you have a lovely fur coat all your own - you should be plenty warm (you might want to give Mom back her coat).

    Have fun - don't forget to rub you snout in the snow (that's the best) - and you might even try snow diving - into the soft fluffy snow banks (not recommended for the frozen over icy banks - beware!)

  10. Oh, snow is NOTHING like a bath - trust me! Baths are EVIL and snow is fun, fun, FUN!!!
    You look very handsome in your outer gear, Sam!

  14. Sam!!!! AND, Cisco! Hugs to you both! Hope you get to play in the white stuff...I would recommend something a little more substantial than the jeans jacket, but the head gear...FANTASTIC pal!
    Snow booties and a ball too!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  15. Oh, Sam! I'm sure you'll love the snow, give it a try!

    How's Cisco?



  16. ROFL! All dressed up and nowhere to go! :)

  17. Hi Pal!!! You sure know how to make a pawty out of all the things you find around your place over there! And as always, you look totally handsome!!! (Not to mention warm!) Those duds will definitely do it for snow country, but you better figger out how to keep Mama warm!!!
