We have Ten Inches of Snow!!!

It snowed here on Friday! It started around noon and kept on going! We ended up with 10 inches and it's just beautiful! Mitch was leaping through the snow and he wanted me to keep up with him and at my age it just wasn't happening! I prefer to sniff the snow trying to find some decent smells!Mom kept us off the road because cars were slipping and sliding and she didn't want them slipping and sliding into us so we checked out the brook at the edge of the pond! Mitch just couldn't stop plowing his face through the snow!What did you find under the hedges, Mitch? Anything interesting that I need to know about?!We have some disturbing news to share! These are all of our Christmas cards so far from all of our DWB buddies! Aren't they beautiful! We love each and every one of them! Thank you so very much!

Mom decided to count all the cards this afternoon and see who was ahead! Here's the score - Maggie and Mitch - 68 cards! Mom and dad - 41 cards!

We find this very distressing! The mailman delivered 3 cards today and they were for the hoomans! We're beginning to get nervous that mom and dad might be more popular than we are and we can't have that happen! So everybody cross your paws that mom and dad don't pass us and end up with more cards than we have! We'll keep you posted!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Haaa we're miles ahead of our pinkies in the card race though they aren't doing too badly. Not near as many as your pinkies.
So many of our maties have snow. We dont even get it in our winter time...what's the deal with that? On the rare occasion it does snow here it doesn't even stay on the ground....what a jip!

Stay away from slipping cars maties.

Ellie & Baz too!

Your snow looks like loads of fun! I think we would plow our faces through it too...don't know for sure since we've never had enough to try it! I bet it really makes it feel like Christmas!

Our pawrents are waaaaay behind us in the card department too. We have 86 and they have 5. Heehee! It could have something to do with the fact that our mom hasn't sent out any cards to hoomans in about 4 years!

Enjoy your snow and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The Musketeers said...

Wow look at all the card ! We have only 36 cards but our human ? 3 !!! BOL !

Comet said...

This is very disturbing that your parents are catching up. We hope you get lots more cards. We are way ahead of our girl. We got 53 to us (plus 36 to us and our girl, but our names are first, so they are ours!!). Our girl only got 10 with just her name on the card. hehehehe

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

"What a photo is makes though!"

Amber-Mae said...

Persephone and Buster said...

Love the snow pix! Maybe you guys can hitch Mitch up to a sled and have some real fun... And it's still snowing on Sunday! What's the deal, here? Maybe we'll start tunneling and drop in on Noah and his tribe, just to spend some time in the balmy tropics.

The card collection is AWESOME!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Your parents are very popular! My mom? Zero cards! I am sharing mine with her!
Enjoy your snow!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Koobuss said...

Ten inches of snow!!! That's wonderful news!! I am so happy for you. You got way more snow than we did. Even though we got more last night, we are still not close to ten inches! Have fun in it while you can. It's supposed to warm up soon.

As for the cards, you will be getting at least one more in the mail, probably tomorrow. That should help you to maintain your lead.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Faya said...

You have snow !!!! Woohoo I am so happy for you....
My poor humans only received 3 cards....hahahaha
Kisses, Faya

Chef said...

We're having a huge snow storm right now - we're getting 20 cm - that's A LOT of inches! And wow is it windy! You'd love it here!

That sure is a lot of cards! You are soooo loved!


the many Bs said...

hi M&M, we got a lot of snow too and Benson is crazy about it. he won't come in the house. he just wants to play and play. crazy boys! hee hee

that's amazing that your mom & dad have so many cards. we think that we should send you 100 cards so then they will never have a chance of catching up with you. our human has 8 cards, which is a new record for her.


Joe Stains said...

omdog our humans have like 6 cards!! you have some real competition!

Enjoy your snow!!

The Army of Four said...

Oh Maggie and Mitch! You both look so wonderful in the SNOW!!!! Are you having a wonderful time in it? It's so bee-roo-tiful!!!!

Moco said...

We are so far ahead in the card race they can never catch up unless they send a bunch of cards to themselves. Don't worry-hoomans don't have a chance.
We have 10 inches of snow also. It is everywhere.

Amici said...

We're glad you received our card. :) And we see it on your DWB door. :)

Amici has beat us out on receiving Christmas cards too. Dogs rule, humans drool I guess. :)

Dexter said...

Are you sure all those cards are really for mom and dad? Hard to believe they have more pals than you two.

Did you go snow crazy? Its hard not to. Did your beards get all frozen? I hope they don't snap off or anything because that might affect your standings in the growing contest.


Chow Chow said...

The snow is simply wonderful! I wish I can experience a bit of snow in my lifetime!

Hollie and Janie said...

I just know you will have more cards than your humans! Yall are so adorable...hang in there! How beautiful the snow is!! Tell Mitch that if I were there, I would so leap through the snow with him!!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Your parents won't pass you up on cards. I'll send you more cards to secure a winning place if you want me to, haha!

Hero said...

I've never seen snow before! I'm so jealous that you get to have 10 inches of it and I get none. I'm sure in the end you'll prove to be more popular than your hoomans.

Randi said...

Omy! Look at all that snow! I bet you both are having the bestest time ever!

Keep warm!

& good job beating your peoples on the holiday cards!

love & licks,

Kess And Her Mama said...

No wonder humans use this phrase "White as snow". What a great picture. Don't worry, we reckon you'll beat your humans paws down in the Christmas card countdown!

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

We got six inches of snow on Friday. Yesterday we got snow in the morning which turned to rain. Now we have some spots that are icy - not fun. We're not sure what Kaci got for snow in NH - Mama, Papa and I will be going to see her for Christmas!

Love -


Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch
Wow! 10 inches of snow. You look like your having so much fun. It's to cold for me to play outside.
Have fun outside.
Love Ruby

Stanley said...

Maggsie & MitchMan!

I would give just about ANYTHING to be able to romp in the snow with you two! OUr snow all got washed away and it's just booty-freezing cold here now (windchill at -20). Brrrrrr.

You will have at least one more card... from us. Our lazy girl is just now getting the first batch mailed. I'm so embarrassed for her.

You guys stay warm and keep plowing and tunneling through that snow!

Goober love & smooches,

Unknown said...

Look at all that snow! Looks beautiful and lots of fun to play in. Enjoy!
