Teeny-Weeny Snow

We might have had a teeny-weeny snow at the house this weekend – meaning it wasn’t totally over our ears except in the drifts.

We want you to look carefully at the photo above. Notice the three divots in the snow along the top of the photo. What kind of creature can possibly bounce that far in foot-and-a-half deep snow?

I can fly!

I can fly!

When we got up yesterday morning, Landon was the first dog outside. Hu-Dad had to shovel a path from the deck to the yard because the snow had drifted so deep. Landon took a running leap off of the deck and…disappeared. He landed in a drift so deep that not even the tips of his ears were showing. There was a delay of a few seconds until we had a Boom Boom Eruption – he leapt high in the air and kangarooed around the yard. Those divots you see in the first picture are his creation from that first bouncing around the yard before sunrise.

So fun!

So fun!

Everyone got outside and played in the snow. But no one had as much fun as the Boom.

And you thought I was crazy.

Movie Memory Monday

Another one of our classic videos to explain the personalities of all of the dogs. How do we each react to bowls of food placed in front of us? Find out in Supper Time.

    Actually we like everything about snow except that it is cold. Our last snow was in 1960.

    I love your snow art Boom Boom! You’re quite talented! I have my own little red headed Boom. Although his name is Bolt, we call him Prancer because of his swishy stride, and the springs in his feet. I read the Herd’s stories to him everyday. All of you are his hero’s/mentors! Have fun with all of that white stuff! We haven’t really had snow for almost 5 winters. My snow Dogs are impatiently waiting!????

    Landon is pretty springy. I’ve noticed that he does fly when he gets going. It’s fun to watch him.

    I just saw the ski area on the weather channel a few minutes ago. You’re sure making national news out there.

    I love watching puppers eating! Warms my heart ❤️????

    It looks like FUN was had by the herd BUT Boom Boom-you outdid yourself! I think you are part kangaroo! Once again-the post started my day with a smile and a laugh!

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.
