Snow in August

Rusty here. The weather finally cooled off here in the mountains and you aren't going to believe what we woke up to. SNOW!

We still got in our hikes, and the snow felt so great on the paws.

It was enough to put a giant smile on my face.

The black and white team had fun, too!

Cheoah even got to do some snow slides.

Just one last thing to tell you - AUGUST FOOLS!

Rusty! Stop laughing. That's APRIL, not AUGUST!

Oh. Never mind.

  28. Zona on August 1, 2010 at 9:52 am

    BOL! I was thinking this is PAWSOME because we’re headed to NC in a couple of days! Oh well, it will still be fun even without an August snow. Looking at your pictures sure made me feel cooler though!

    Wags,
    Zona

  29. Mimi & CC Cabana on August 1, 2010 at 9:36 am

    Ha ha! I too figured it was not for real, knowing how hot it’s been there. But I guess weirder things have happened. It was nice to see snow photos, though–like seeing tropical beach shots in the dead of winter.

  30. norwood on August 1, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Huh your siberian mind games didn’t fool me!!! That rooster boy.. is full of tom foolery.

  31. Houndstooth on August 1, 2010 at 9:11 am

    I was waiting for it to all be a dream! Knowing Rusty as the jester he is, I think he’s allowed to pull an August Fool’s Day if he wants! He looks so darned happy in every picture!

  32. KB on August 1, 2010 at 9:02 am

    I LOVE Rusty’s sense of humor! On a related note, I have my computer set for a random slide show when I stop using it. The snow photos do look very nice on the warmer days!

  33. Shawnee the Shepherd on August 1, 2010 at 8:42 am

    You had me wonnering how I could be up north in the mountains wif no snows and you be down south in the mountains wif snows. That did not seem rite. But you did be pulling my paw, BOL!

  34. Pip on August 1, 2010 at 8:16 am

    You totally had me going!! LOL!

    Your pal, Pip

  35. Ricky on August 1, 2010 at 7:54 am

    You all didn’t fool me! I was scrolling down through the snow photos thinking, “Is this an April Fool’s in August?” and I was right! LOL!

  36. MAXMOM on August 1, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Awwww!…I’m so happy for the herd! This is paradise for them all. I have a big smile on my face!
