That would be snow

Why didn't I listen to Bart Adrian and wear suitable clothes? The day started out nice, no snow. Then the afternoon hit and my jeans were slushy, my shoes were soaked and my hair was ratted. Next time Bart, next time. Met many new dogs today and actually was able to sneak in some puppy lovin'.

Muffin met some new friends. Two Weimaraners had recently been surrendered and are waiting to have their temperment tests completed in order to be placed on the adoption list. I slipped them some treats through the fence courtesy of Muffin.

Gotta love Buddy. He is just trying to do his part and pick up litter that he finds. Today he found a Coke bottle. Buddy carried it just about all the way back, but allowed me to pick up the dirty slimy bottle and finish up the job. I guess we are a team Buddy.

Meet Tommy B, don't ask what the B stands for. His litter mate had been adopted, so I was happy to spend some indoor time with Tommy B. Young puppies aren't allowed outside for health purposes. He was amazed by my coat zipper and never bit me once with those razor sharp puppy teeth. Props to you Tommy B props. Also please note - a puppy is quite difficult to photograph, especially when you are in the kennel.

Georgia is an older pup, so I was able to take her outside. She liked to chase me rather than tennis ball, maybe she is still too young for that kind of action. Anyways she still has her puppy belly and loved to have her jelly belly rubbed.

Libby the pup. Libby was very attentive to me and walked awesomely. In fact she prances much like a show dog or a horse. Her front legs lift up high and kind of flip. Its graceful to watch. Could care less about the snow and wanted to be by my side. Sweet puppy.

Can't forget about The Dude. What can I say? The Dude loves everything. I didn't expect him to not love the snow. His only discouragement was when he lost the tennis ball, as it would roll into a snowball. The Dude also attempted to make a Dude snow angel. It's okay Dude I totally saw the angel.

Welcome to the blog Princess. Princess loved to have her pictures taken. In fact I think she winked at me. We started out walking along and she was simply so happy. I thought as long as this dog's tail is a waggin', I'll keep on a walkin'. Well we ran out of time and eventually had to head back. First opportunity to spend time with her and she was a princess indeed.

Without question here are a couple snapshots of Stephan rhomping in the snow, which he loved. At the end of our short rhomp, he had snowballs latched onto his legs and belly. I didn't notice it at the time, but I think he tried to catch some flakes on his tongue. See it in the first picture?

Keep on keeping on,
In the world which we know, among the different and primitive geniuses that preside over the evolution of the several species, there exists not one, excepting that of the dog, that ever gave a thought to the presence of man. ~Maurice Maeterlinck

  1. how in God's name can you walk out of there with no dogs in tow? I would never have the will power you have... I would take them all. They are adorable and I love reading of your ventures!!
