Our First Snow Day

Our day began with a much anticipated snow-fall and a rare glimpse of our resident Barred Owl sitting on our fence.
There's nothing like the snow to bring out the inner puppy!  All the dogs loved the snow, including Sunny! That is until, as you can see in the series of photos below, he realized I was taking pictures.  When he saw me, he quickly retreated and raced back inside.  Poor Sunny...




The dogs and I were outside in the snow several times today. Its been a long time since I enjoyed time outside playing with all of them.  After the past week, we needed that time to just have fun together.  The weekend has ended on a good note.
I hope yours has too.

What great pictures of fun. I love the first one of Todd leading the pack and the last one they look like they've gather around for a night time story. Stay warm.

Aroo to you,

Those photos are great, love the close-up, and "The Family " in the porch, with a light shining to give that golden glow a little. So glad you had a day together with the crew , much needed. Fond greetings from Jean.

Have a happy week!

Sam said...

I always wonder what our pups would do if it suddenly snowed here. We have taken them north to see snow, but it isn't quite the same. :)

Hi Kim!
Love the pics! Sidney hates the camera too - I can't tell you how many photos we have him where the look on his face is, "why are you stealing my soul???"

You showed the loveliest scenes of snow. Here the snow had caused havoc and all we see are traffic snarls.

Barbara Lilian said...

Looks like you and your dogs had a great time in the snow, just what the Doctor ordered to help you get over the loss of Wendy. Fabulous photo of them all, waiting for their titbit I guess.

Inger said...

You really needed that fun playtime with your pups. Samson and I have played in the snow too, snow brings out both puppies and kids in all of us. I love seeing Todd racing around, he's having a great old time.

Ansku said...

Oh my god! Your goldens look so happy running in the snow!!I'm sure that they were having lots of fun outside. Are your goldens doing the same as our Mickey, they kind of "dive" and roll in the snow? I guess that it's some kind of a retrievers thing that they do that, because I've seen other retrievers doing the same... :-D

Sue said...

We've all been having a blast in the snow in very short periods. It's too cold to stay out very long.

Poor Sunny, I wonder what happened to him in his former life.

Ryker said...

I LOVE your owl!
I am sick of ice, even the snow has a thick layer of ice just waiting to cut up some doggie paws. I am calling the Vet to see if Rykers titers came back OK so we can go to K9 Aquatics and go swimming! An indoor dog pool...what a great idea.
Your pack looks so happy in the snow :)

Snow makes Hailey a crazy girl! Looks like so much fun!

The Witch said...

Kim,
Just beautiful pictures which cheered my day up.
The Owl so majestic looking.
And the crew happy, healthy, enjoying the snow with absolute no worries. Well except one member, but I'm sure eventually that will change.

Jim said...

We are having our 1st as I speak! And Sophie was just outside taking a look. She would have loved to have been with your 'pack', Kim! Snow will do it alright!!

Karine said...

Hello Kim,

First of all, I am so, so, sorry for the loss of Wendy. I know how difficult it is to lose a beloved pet after so many years of friendship, so I hope healing is coming to your heart.

It was lovely to see you and the dogs enjoying your time in the snow, many people have been doing the same thing up here in Montreal today!

Susie and Sidebite said...

Oh boy what fun, weeks always gotta end on a good note, (even with sad days before)cause thats what we puppers do best, cheer you up!

What a wonderful playful time for the dogs! They look so happy. I'm glad that their joy could bring some lightness to your heart.

Suz said...

Looks like pure joy! Love the frolicking!

That does not look like a real owl, it looks more like a picture! Oh, and your dogs (especially Todd) always make me smile.

Love to see the dogs romping in the snow. We haven't had much so far.

Hi Y'all!

Looks like fun, but once you experience cold and snow, I'm rooting for an indoor bathroom for dogs!!!

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

P.S. I know I'm a Chessie, but snow isn't the same as cold water and a good swim!
