What Happened to Our Sunshine?

Mountain weather is always unpredictable and today’s post is a great example of that. In fact, the weather is so unpredictable that it made today’s blog post unpredictable. When Hu-dad took this first picture around 10 a.m., he thought the post was going to be about Typhoon’s funny sleeping position.

A little relaxed, Typhoon?

Yesterday morning was fairly warm (about 32ºF or 0ºC) and sunny, and Frankie and Typhoon were enjoying a nap in the sun. Well, enjoying the nap until they heard the Hu-dad taking pictures.


Puparazzi always disturbing our naps.

Our afternoon was considerably different as the temperature dropped into the low teens, winds began gusting, and snow showers blew.

Don’t worry. Give us a couple of hours for something completely different.

    It seems that Typhoon was dreaming of perfect sibe weather!

    Hate it when a perfect sun puddle is ruined! Hope you get some sunshine back!!

    My Cynder used to sleep like that. Belly up to the sun in the middle of her yard. Yes, it was HER yard! I am sure she is sunning her belly somewhere over the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you Typhoon – you made me smile this morning. (And you too Hu-Dad!)

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
