Snow Day

We woke up this morning to a beautiful layer of thick snow covering everything.  I let the dogs out at 3:30am and realized there would be a good chance that this would be a snow day.

The first one in my life!  Woot!

Of course, snow days are meant to be played in, and while I bundled up and hurried through morning chores, our pups had no issues with the chill.
Monty and Harlow are nicely equipped with thick fur coats - I'm pretty sure they don't feel the cold.  Ramble will run out in it, race once around the yard, and want  back in.  I can't blame him.  He doesn't always give me time to put a sweater on, so this morning our nekkid boy had to bravely face the elements.
Dis bad idea...  beep...

He even managed to race around with Harlow and Monty!
I always panic a bit when Monty races towards me.  He doesn't have good brakes....
Harlow and Monty found a new sport that they absolutely love - snow wrestling!  Which of course made them damp, and caused little snow balls to hang off of them - but they didn't care!
Harlow's "vicious" face...

Da Momma, help!

 Of course, the fun doesn't end outside.  Once the pups have decided they have had enough, they need to be towel dried and have hundreds of snow balls removed...
Da Harlow is worth it, da Momma!


  1. You mean Ramble doesn't have proper winter gear to keep him warm????? He needs to go shopping!


  2. Oh boy that snow is a blast

  3. What a GREAT day!!!!!

  4. We got a couple half days because of snow last week! The dogs thought it was time to play, but since I still had to go to work a few hours later, we didn't get to enjoy it quite as much as they wanted to. I'm glad your gang got to enjoy the snow so much!

  5. Oh you're so lucky !
    We had some snow which was gone in a minute - poof !!! - just like that. I didn't have time for snow zoomies, snow fights or to build a snowman. Then it rained and rained and rained for four whole days without stopping. So enjoy your lovely snow while you can !

  15. Cute pics! That looks like so much fun! Poor Rita has never had a nice, fresh snow day! She's only seen snow once, and it was the old crusty kind. (She still enjoyed it - but she doesn't know what she's missing!)

  16. Snow days are the best! We had our share this winter and now we are ready to move on to spring!

  17. What fun!!! I bet that you didn't have snow days in AZ! Our pups love being toweled off almost as much as they love playing in the snow. Have fun!!!!!!
