A Touch of Snow

We woke up to just the slightest touch of snow.

The distant mountain tops are snow covered while the valleys are green.

Queen Natasha enjoyed her morning perimeter patrol.

She checked to make sure everything was secure.

While Kiska handled the center of the dog lot.

And then it was time for our morning walk.

    And, did Cheoah execute a snow slide on snow???

    We woke up to 65°F sunny weather … and took a nice romp around our neighborhood. Now 35 degrees later, it’s SNOWING! We are really really happy about that! We need it BAD! (Lucky thing … the roads and sidewalks are just wet and tomorrow it’ll be sunny and warm. Melt for the Earth!)

    Enjoy! We sure are.

    It’s a shame it can’t snow all the time for you. Although I bet the hu-dad is more than happy that it doesn’t.

    Looks like you were all enjoying that ‘touch of snow’!

    take care

    We are still getting bits of snow here, too! Perhaps Queen Natasha and the lovely Kiska would like to do a perimeter and interior check of our ranch? Hmmm…they might opt to climb into a stall with the baby mustang for a nap 🙂

    Kiska: superb floof action!!

    That looks like Sibe Heaven! Did Cheoah get one more roll in?

  12. Stella on April 3, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    Since my Mom is deaf, my work is inside the house. So I just nap until someone comes to the door, or the phone rings. Ever vigilant, even in sleep!

    You can see what a find job The Queen and Kiska do!

    So Mother Nature is making up for the lack of snow in March? We have the opposite – very warm and windy, going into the 80s today and then those bad storms tonight.

    Wish we could sniff in that snow with you.

    Just curious – how often does the Herd get a bath? How do you do it? Do you have a big tub somewhere or is there a local “Wag ‘n’ Wash”?

  15. Sagira on April 3, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    Bet you all loved that. 🙂

  16. Kari on April 3, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Im sure the pups were very excited to see some snow

    It looks like Winter’s last goodbye to you, but it is quite beautiful on the mountain.

  18. Khyra on April 3, 2011 at 9:52 am

    I’m glad woo khropped me out of the pikhs –

    Mom didn’t know I hiked along whilst she was at work 😉

    PeeEssWoo: It was snow much fun!

  19. Farley on April 3, 2011 at 9:39 am

    It is sooooo beautiful there 🙂

  20. Sam on April 3, 2011 at 9:36 am

    How nice! I bet they feel frisky on morning like that!


  21. Ruth on April 3, 2011 at 5:44 am

    Enjoy your walk!

  22. Holly & Khady on April 3, 2011 at 2:29 am

    What we wouldn’t give for some more snow! It was almost 70 degrees here today!
