Mitch's First SnowStorm

Our new friends Bella and Gabe, the Newfies gave us the very festive Merry Christmas spirit award! Thanks so much guys! We sure appreciate this! You guys are the BEST!!!


If you haven't checked out their blog yet, please go have a look! They are both gorgeous doggies! They do have a wee bit of disturbing news at the moment. Their 2 year old buddy, Tug, is missing and he's all alone and scared in the big city of Chicago and Tug's family is heart broken. If you're in this area, please stop by Bella and Gabe's blog for more details! Let's spread the word and get this doggie home ASAP! It's cold out there!

And speaking of cold and snow, we had our first snowstorm yesterday! Snow flakes started to come down around 10AM and the snow turned to sleet and then back to snow after that! We only got about 4" but it's white and it's cold and it's so much fun to eat and tuckbuttrun in!



This is Mitch's first snowstorm and he is very happy about it! This was his first time on the flexi-leash and he was having a ball racing around and stepping out onto the ice and slipping and sliding and making mom nervous! He's checking out the ducks for his lunch!


I just love the snow! You would never know that I was 9 1/2 years old the way I race around in it! I think snow is just one of the BEST inventions!


This is Mitch's face when mom told him it was time to go back inside!


We hear that another storm is brewing for Saturday night after midnight. We sure hope that AireRuby will be able to land here to pick us up and fly us to Butchy and Snickers ice skating pawty on Sunday!


So until next time.............


Love ya lots,


Maggie

Mama had to drive through that stuff for a work event! It took her 2 1/2 hours to go 30 miles!!!

This was Patches first snow storm too, and he is lovin' it - but not as much as I am. I love the snow! (We're supposed to get more on the East Coast this weekend!)

Oh don't you worry Maggie, we have the landing thing all figured out!!! We'll be fine.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

We think Aire Ruby will be OK, but it is up to Ruby to decide. We can always do it for new years.

Oh you guys are so lucky to have some snow, I think we're only going to get some rain down south here in Virginia. All our snow melted some time ago so we're still waiting for more!

Stanley said...

Hey, kids!!

WooHoo!!! I can tell you guys love the snow as much as Stella & I do. I love to dig it, eat it and bury myself in it! Obviously, you guys do too!

Hope we get to romp around in the snow at Butchy & Snickers' pawty! I love to see you romp, Maggs!

Goober love,
Stanley

jaffeboy said...

Wow... snow sure look like fun! Mitch must be delighted!

Mojo said...

I'm so jealous! That looks like the best fun ever! I love the photo of the two of you spronking about in it. Remember, you gain extra points for making your humans fall over in this stuff. Try wrapping your leads around their knees real fast then dashing off.

Have a great time in it

Oh your snow looks lovely!

I had myself some snow and then the rain came and turned it all to mush / mud.

Maybe it will snow some more soon so I can have some snowfun too!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Maggie & Mitch,
Isn't snow so fun?? We just love to eat it too. Then we love to run really fast in it, just about knocking Mama to the ground. We can't believe how long your beard is getting Maggie. We bet you win the contest.
We were supposed to get snow later today, but Mama thinks it is missing us this time unless the wind changes directions. Aire-Ruby should have no problem landing with the new snowshoes that were installed on the plane. See you here tomorrow!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Bogart said...

I wanna play in the snow with you guys someday... :)

Love,

Gus and Louie said...

Louie and I so wish that is would snow in Texas. We think that would be so much fun to play in that fluffy stuff. It is still yucky outside today. Not raining but very cold and windy. The wind blowing the leaves does entertain Louie though. He can't decide which leaf to chase next...

Sophie Brador said...

Hey M & M, You don't have nearly as much snow as us, but you might by tomorrow. WE're getting another big dump tomorrow too. I'm getting all rested up for the romping. I can't wait!
