We’re doing the winter happy dance early at our house this year. It’s been cold for this time of year, and the weather people said we might get a few inches of snow on Tuesday, but it got real cold and we got nine inches of beautiful white stuff! Since we love snow we are all super excited. Of course, it is too early in the year for it to stay for long, but we are enjoying it while we can. Paws crossed for a long, cold, and snowy winter.
The snow came down really heavy for most of the afternoon so taking photos was tough. It was rather dark, and all the flakes make for blur and water spots on the lens, but our lady got a few shots of us. Being short made the going rough for short Madison.
All of us collected snowballs on our furs because it was really wet snow that loves to ride along on us. You can see Bailie’s front legs are pretty much covered.
Being the wild, young one in the family, I have been doing the most racing around. It is so much fun! Can you tell by my face how seriously I’m taking my racing?
Madison has to hop to get anywhere with her short self, but she has a lot of power and muscle in those little legs! As the vet told Mom, Madison is like a concrete block, solid as a rock!
Yesterday we were able to get out and see for a change since the snow had stopped. Our nine inches make this the second snowiest storm ever in October in Minnesnowta. Yes, we are all happy to get to do our happy dance in the white stuff of record!
Mom loves the colored leaves on the white snow, and what a coincidence that my furs look great with orange!
Watch out, I’m powering up to do some more racing. Mom says I look like a snow porpoise, but I think I look like myself.
Bailie really gets into running in the first real snow of the season. She is pretty fast too for being seven, and multi talented because she is also howling!
I think Madison is still tired from the night before because she isn’t bounding around a whole lot. It takes a lot of energy because the snow is very wet and heavy.
Watch out for Bailie, she is now racing through the pretty fall leaves. We have a real fall and winter scene going on in our yard this week. I wonder if Mom will be able to rake leaves or if the snow will keep coming?
It appears that Madison has decided to walk and not bound anymore. She is also looking for the trampled trails to travel on around the yard. I would bet if Mom called treats, Madison would run again.
Speaking of treats, it is time for this flying, winter happy dance hound to land. I need to get some fuel to keep on moving! We are all super thankful for this little storm and all the snow. What a great surprise at this time of year!
