Looking down our field, we see our neighbor, Cataloochee Ski, is busy making snow.

The weather is finally cold enough that they can make snow for more than just a few hours at night.

The skiers were enjoying parts of the resort while other trails were being covered with freshly made snow.

So do you think The Herd was impressed with our neighbor's snow making ability.

Frankie says wake us when the snow is in OUR field.

    So they don’t let pups on the slopes, huh? What if your had your own snowboards? Sending White Dog woos for white.

    Paws crossed for you guys to get some snow!


  3. Ryker on December 14, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    I think you all need some ski’s!

    Surely you could offer them some treats to come over and make the snow in your yard?

  5. Kari on December 14, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    Soon Frankie

    Stop on by for a visit

    So close, yet so far! I hope you get your snow soon!

  10. Dexter on December 14, 2011 at 7:54 am

    I agree Frankie! Unless they are going to let us mush between the skiers. Which mom tells me isn’t going to happen… Then what’s the point?

    wooo we agree Frankie, no point getting up until the snow is in your field.
