When winter gives you snow, go wild in it! We are so happy with winter so far – lots of snow and cold, and we hope that trend continues until at least March! I guess we are not very popular because most folks are complaining about the weather, but we love it!
Olivia and I were out in the yard together right after we got another three inches of the beautiful white powder from the sky. It was just Grand! By the way, do you know why there is rarely snow around our pine trees? Evidently, they give off a lot of heat, and that melts the snow. It is also why critters enjoy building nests under the branches.
I was just enjoying the fresh snow and smells around the yard, especially around the trees, but Olivia wanted me to play with her. She can be a real pest if she doesn’t get what she wants! Getting right in one’s face is a favorite way for her to bother Madison and me.
Since I wouldn’t give in to her nonsense, the sassy puppy came out and smacked me right in the face. Actually, her jumbo paw hit me square in my right eye. Luckily I have plenty of eye furs so it I get a black eye, no one will see it. I couldn’t believe she did that!
That pretty much ended my patience, and I decided to chase that little puppy down, and show her who is the boss around here. Do you like my Farah Faucet head furs?
To my surprise, Olivia was right, and chase was a lot of fun! We did a race together from one end of the yard to the other. Go, dogs, go!
At one point, I let my guard down and that stinker tackled me!
Once I regained the upper paw, she took off running. She is smart! I won’t really hurt her, but I pretend like I might to get her to respect me at least a little bit.
After some good romping, we went back in the house. Olivia sacked out in the wicker kennel almost immediately. How nice to have her tired out so the rest of us can have some peace and quiet!
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard for their Nature Friday blog hop.
