Snow at the Cousins

Our hu-dad was over at The Thundering Herd Annex visiting with Tartok and Ruby – oh, and our hu-grandparents.  He was doing a little helping with the electronics when he discovered these pictures of our cousins out for a walk in an early December snow (December 5 to be exact).  So, they might be a little late, but we wanted to share some of the snow fun our cousins have been having.

Woo - it is like a mirror image of the other picture

    It looks so cold there! Do you guys need a scarf? I’ll get my Momma to knit one for you! But you might have to share one though… she knits really slowly.

    Tula, all I can say is make sure you RESEARCH the breed…sigh. i love my sibe! but if i’d known then what i know now… so many shoes and household items (and my CAR) would have been spared. oh i’d still have gotten the sibe, for sure, but darn, i would have been MUCH more prepared! tee hee… oh well, sometimes the only way to learn is to lose.

    ruby’s gorgeous. she looks confident. so happy for her. tartok is a wonderful bro!
