Snow Games – Our Favorite

We had a snow back before Halloween, but then Mother Nature has given us very little snow since. Finally, we are starting to see some snow fall. We had a nice additional layer of 5″-6″ over the weekend. Sunday afternoon ended up being clear and sunny, so we had some some time to play our favorite kind of game – Snow WrestlingChaseTag. Hope you enjoy our pictures:

Cheoah waits

Cheoah a split second before being tackled by a flying Typhoon.

Typhoon stretch

Typhoon hits full stride to join a Frankie / Cheesewhiz wrestling match.

Frankie Snow Smackdown

Frankie does a little snow smackdown on his little brother.

Frankie run

Frankie runs with Cheesewhiz and Typhoon in hot pursuit.

Typhoon faked

Typhoon was totally faked by Frankie’s twisting, but Cheesewhiz never lost pursuit.


Frankie reaches the safety zone of the deck.


Typhoon pulls a vampire move on Cheesewhiz.

Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is in the center of the dog run, providing a great obstacle.


Typhoon and Frankie race on either side of the Tree of Life.

Hot pursuit

Cheesewhiz is in hot pursuit of Typhoon and Frankie is gaining ground.

Win - and lose

Cheesewhiz wins the snow race by a nose – and is rewarded with a double body slam from her brothers.

Have no fear, the senior crew also enjoyed the snow. We will share some of their pictures tomorrow.

    Looks like so much fun!! Our pups haven’t gotten any snow down here in Asheville…I think they might be jealous!

    We love us some snow games. Because (say it with me) zoomies and bitey-face are ALWAYS better in snow!

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
