Finally!

As we mentioned yesterday, we are really challenged with our hu-dad getting pictures of us since we came back from the beach.  Something about all of the cold weather.  Well, it got hotter than predicted yesterday – all the way up to 20F (-7C) – so our hu-dad actually got pictures of us on our nightly walk.  He is mumbling something about we walked at sunset and it was no longer that warm (since we are writing this at 8:30 pm and it is 4F (-15C)), but puh-lease.  Enjoy our Friday evening walk:

Apparently, this is proof the sun is setting.

Kiska - Yeah, dad, we are impressed. Let's walk.

    I’m always amazed when I see more than one pup working together – cause I know what it’s like with just one! 🙂

    You make the most mundane things very funny! “Apparently, this is proof that the sun was setting” really made me laugh!!!! And, let me tell you, I haven’t been having many laughs lately so I truly appreciate it.

    And “Rusty, well, being Rusty.” I love Rusty.

    We just love Rusty being Rusty. You guys are lucky to get a walk. We haven’t had one since before Christmas, the Momster is afraid of falling:(

    Woos, Phantom and Thunder

    We don’t understand why the cold bothers the humans so much, we don’t mind being out there in it at all…hehe
    Our humans are always complaining about it being so cold out there.

    Stay safe and warm you guys.

    We’re having freezing cold temperatures here as well – we’re not used to it at all!

    Have a lovely weekend

    I have to say that the more I lurk around the more I fall in love with Rusty. He reminds me of my crazy dog Max. I keep telling my hubby if he doesn’t settle down soon, I will get rid of him. But who else will love him like us. Just have to put more effort into training.

    Rusty being Rusty is one of the funniest things I know.

    Kisses,
    Stella, still in the deepfreeze until MONDAY, count the days!

    Hey sometimes if you tell hu-dad that there is a beer at the end of the walk.. he’ll be just fine. I really couldn’t see much with all the floof!

    Oh, you all look so happy in the snow and cold. My ears get kind of cold when they drag on the ground and I envy your nice little compact ears when it is cold.

  22. Huffle Mawson on January 9, 2010 at 6:33 am

    Rusty. You are so funny, man.

  23. Mr Koda MD on January 9, 2010 at 2:51 am

    Great walk!

    I would need some of those glorious boots your hu-dad has on, they look like they will keep the snow from my feetyfeets!

    Nice tail floof also…

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
