Gathering Snowballs

We reported yesterday that the Snow Thief is working hard to steal our snow from sunny spots, so that sent somepup gathering snowballs.

Must protect my last snowball.

Qannik. We know you saw the picture we posted yesterday with grass showing, but you do know we have plenty of snow in the yard, right? After all, who brought that snow ball up to the deck?

Yes, that is right, the Queen is bringing snow in from the yard. What do you say to that?

Another snowball!

Another snowball!

Must protect the new snowball.

Uh, Qannik, we think you are eating it, not protecting it. And not like you can’t go out to the yard and get your own.

I have such weird brothers.

    Snow dogs provide the best entertainment. Thankful for your blog.

    But QNTE you gave to admit 2 things for your weird brothers 1 they are entertaining and 2 protecting aka chewing/eating snowballs keeps Qtip busy and out of your fur huh.

    That was always Queen Mishas the idea. A human or something else keep her court jester Koda entertained so she could get a minute to herself lol.
