Well, this winter has made up for all the years when we had little to no snow. We keep going from 50 degree temperature days to 2 – 5 inches of snow on the ground. It started snowing yesterday afternoon and by the time it quit this morning, we had close to 5 inches of snow. Flash, my black English Cocker Spaniel, loves the snow. He loves chasing snow balls, too, and his Poppa David is always willing to accommodate his demands ….er, requests … for a rousing game of snow ball chase. Ian, my older red English Cocker Spaniel, enjoys the snow but not nearly as much as Flash.
Above, Ian looks on as Flash attacks a snowball that just landed. Check out the intensity on Flash’s face!
Above, Flash is about to leap into the air, encouraging his Dad to throw.
My yak (above). The boy is a bit of a coat factory and is in need of some serious grooming. All of that snow just sticks to him, but it doesn’t slow him down at all.
“I can fly!” Or, at least he thinks he can. I am always amazed at how he can zoom over the snow like that. It must be nice to be young and agile.
Oops! Course correction needed. Flash took off towards his left, but David threw the snowball to his right. I love his ears flying in the snow.
Here, he almost looks like he’s laughing. He has such a great joie de vivre.
Here’s my snow-dog! The amazing (and good) thing is that once we quit playing, he shook a couple of times and all the snow was gone from his coat. He came into the house almost dry.
