Enjoying Spring Snow

As our weather has warmed, everyone is racing to enjoy the last of the snow.

A view of our favorite tree and Cataloochee Ski in the background

Cataloochee has announced that they will be open for two more weekends. Skiers are taking one of their last runs of the season.

Those skiers are such amateurs. This is how you enjoy spring snow.

Stand back, Qannik. Kodiak and Cheoah are professionals.

    Hiya to all of you!!! The countryside looks stunning. And my mom just realized that you live right next to the slopes – she would love that! Me?! Not too sure. Guess I would have to wear jumpers all winter long… πŸ™

    Dear Mr. Wall,

    I’ve been away for long – sorry! But a lot has changed on your blog while I was away. For instance, I see a Golden Retriever in the header. I must’ve missed something. Has someone joined the family?

    Hu-dad (Nice name:))will fix the work problem, with or without duct-tape. Humans are great at creating and then resolving problems – that’s their way of keeping busy:)

    Licks n wags,

    No matter how hard you try to hold it down, guys, it IS going away! Sorry!

    Aww, they look like they’re hugging it and saying their goodbyes till next winter! Our weekend foot of snow disappeared in 70Β° weather today, but sounds like more snow on the way for tomorrow. Dogs say YEAH!

    That’s definitely the right way to enjoy the snow! πŸ™‚

    Not sure if it’s just me, but I had a hard time commenting on this post. Our internet is dying and won’t be fixed till Thursday so it’s probably my connection. I’ll be reading from mom’s phone, but it’s not fun to comment with it. My paws are too big! πŸ™‚

    And no lift tickets required. Who should be training who? πŸ˜‰

    BOL Flat sibes!!! So this is how it’s done, enjoying the snow. One of these days I’ll send you a photo of my bold belly as an explanation as to why I will never join you in enjoying spring snow. Besides, I’m not a professional either.

  11. Kari on March 22, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    you guys really do know how to enjoy the snow!

  12. The Army of Four on March 22, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    LOVE your idea of enjoying Spring snow! Ha rooooo! Sadly, our conditions here have become awful. It’s currently 65 degrees and our snow from the weekend is almost gone. πŸ™
    Play bows,
    PS: We had a hard time getting into your site the past couple of days!

  13. Huffle Mawson on March 22, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    Kodiak and Cheoah could make some money for extra treats by teaching others how to enjoy that snow!

  14. The OP Pack on March 22, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    We have been working hard today to enjoy the last of our spring snow. It is disappearing way too quickly. Even the little one seems to know how to cool her belly on it. Kodiak and Cheoah taught us well.

    That looks Siberific! If we had still had snow (which we don’t), we’d try that today! Woo pups look like woo are having a wonderful time.

    Kodiack and Cheoah,

    You guys have the right idea. You really gotta get down on the snows level and roll around in it to really appreciate it! Thats a pawsome picture. Our momma loves it so, she said hope you enjoy the snow just a little bit longer…

    Wags and Woofs,
    Mack and Mia

    Don’t try this at home, kids!

    My dogs seem to spend the majority of our walks in the same snow sliding position. The crusty spring snow must feel great on their skin! However, my two leap to their paws and look dignified when I pull out the camera!

  20. Pepper on March 22, 2010 at 1:40 am

    Oh man, you guys look like you’re enjoying that snow sooooo much, bet it feels really nice & cool on your bellies. You must really miss it when it all melts away
