Random Snow Pictures

The Snow Thief came back to us and our temperatures got warm yesterday (though it snowed for a while Tuesday night again), but we are supposed to be back to some snow this weekend.  We want to keep the memory of snow going, so here are some random shots from this past weekend.


A road near our house before we walked on it.  No paw prints!


Road 2

Blue Ridge Parkway after we had walked up and then back.

So much for no paw prints, huh?

Thunder 1

Dad’s first shot of our favorite sign, except he wasn’t centered.


Thunder 2

Ok, he got the sign, but we did not cooperate.  But we love “Thunder” struck.



Aren’t the icicles great?  Natasha always tries to carry one back.


Red Heads

The Reds – Kodiak, Cheoah and Rusty


Rusty and Cheoah

    Since we have been reading your blog backwards, we know that you got more snow. Otherwise we’d be feeling much worse for you.

    Furry Cool Pics! Our snow is all gone. But we is suppose to git more over da weekend. One can only hope.
    We like chewing on icicles too. Maw gives us ice cubes to make up for our not having any snow or ice.

    Husky kisses,

    Those icicles are so cool! I’ve never seen anything like that before.

    Wroo, furends! What pawsome pictures those are! Hope the snow is back with you soon. We thought the pictures of the road (before and after paws!) were wonderful! We like the sign, too. And the icicles! Natasha, you go, girl – carrying those icicles!

    And The Girl announced that she ADORES Rusty, so if super dizzy and always sleeping is what they have in common, then she’s honoured!

    Brown dog kisses,

    Well, if we can’t have snow, then the pics do help – they are beautiful.

    Ummm AO4, Thunder is named for one of Mel Gibson’s movies – Mad Maxx from ThunderDome or something like that – his father is named Mel after the actor and he came to us named Maxx – had to change that for sure.

    We would love to hear more about your pup who had the Cushing’s – did you treat with lysodren? Thanks for the good thoughts for Dakota.
