Brace yourself, pups, the following picture is very graphic.  The horror is almost unbearable to see.  Ready?  Ok, scroll down:

Yep, that’s right pups.  Our snow has shrunk dramatically.  We still have some snow in the yard and along certain parts of our walk, but our road is almost totally clear and the humans are able to drive around with ease.  Sigh.  What can we do?

We know!  We are headed today to Abingdon and Damascus Virginia for the Alaska Serum Run Re-enactment hosted by Siberian Husky Assist.  As we have told you before, this rescue has a special place in our heart because that is where our dear Kodiak was taken care of before coming to Chez Herd.

    Oh no! I hope you get more snow soon!


  2. Laura, Lance, and Vito on January 17, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    aww you should come to MN, we have PLENTY of snow that i would happily share.

    what a perfect way to honor Kodiak! except for that disappearing snow. Juno really needs to visit you on snow days. i think she’d love the snow, your long walks AND your pack! she’s so friendly, she gets along with EVERYONE and EVERYPUP. including Retardo, err… Loki.

    i’m so sure she’d love a long walk and visit in the snow with the Herd.

    Sorry about your snow, but have fun at the re-enactment!


  5. Elizabeth & Luna on January 16, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    What on earth will you all do?!?

  6. The Army of Four on January 16, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    I’m so sorry. Our snow (or lacking thereof) seems to be in similar straits. It’s so sad!!!

  7. Dennis the Vizsla on January 16, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    Farewell, snow, we hardly knew ye!

  8. JacksDaddy on January 16, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    I think I saw your snow in Minnesota. Maybe they stole it!

  9. Hero on January 16, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    I completely understand what woo are going thrwoo. The Snow Thief stole all of my snow too! I guess I’m gonna have to wait until next winter. =(

    Sorry about the missing snow. I’ve got to be honest, I enjoyed going to the park and not having to slosh through 6 inches.. but I know how much you guys like it!

  11. Twinkietinydog on January 16, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    You should have a chat with Phantom and Thunder from The Chronicle of Woos. Somebody needs to coordinate your efforts. As for today…have a blast!

  12. jack a-roo on January 16, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Thanks so very much for posting SMRP’s note _ it touched my hart. I haven’t been able to type at all until today. and now, after a short time, I have to stop. What a bummer. I think that my commenting might be minimal for a while.

    Sorry about the vanishing snow but I hope you have fun at you Sibe-oriented activities.

  14. Clive on January 16, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    Yes indeed the NSLM’s dad was able to get his first game of golf in today after six weeks of the course being closed!

    Maybe your snow will be back??

    take care

  15. Kari on January 16, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    oh no disappearing snow! we will visit the snow next week when we head back home to Alaska 🙂

  16. Stella on January 16, 2010 at 11:31 am

    Will the Herd be pulling a sled? That would be most fun to see.

    Have yourselves a fun weekend!


  17. Houndstooth on January 16, 2010 at 10:06 am

    I’m not sorry to see our snow disappearing! I’ve almost unearthed my hole to China again!

    That event sounds like a lot of fun! I’m betting you will have lots of cool pictures to share!


  18. The OP Pack on January 16, 2010 at 10:01 am

    Sadly our snow is melting too. We still have some but by tomorrow there will be way more green than white in our yard. Have a lot of fun at that serun run reenactment today – maybe you will find another pup to bring home:)

  20. Martha and Bailey on January 16, 2010 at 7:17 am

    Our snow is also melting today – after some six weeks we are relieved to see some green!
    Enjoy your trip – sounds like fun!

  21. Mr Koda MD on January 16, 2010 at 4:54 am

    Uh OH!!

    Bye bye snow!!

    We had a brilliant sunny warm day here today, I don’t think it would be ideal for you

  22. Kit on January 16, 2010 at 3:58 am

    Fear not about the retreating snow…I do believe it will make another appearance this winter…
    Did you get to meet Bill Borden…I met him last year at the Iditarod and turns out, he and his wife live a couple hours south of me.. Did we wear his usual attire of tuxedo and Bunny Boots. It might have been to hot for the boots.
    I’m heading back up to Iditarod in March! Mush On!!!

  23. Khyra on January 16, 2010 at 2:17 am

    I know your pain!

    I had *GASP* golfers out there!

    My Sunday post shares those horrors!

    Be sure to spread the fur!
