Snow Dogs

The snow continues to fall so we decided to make the most of it.

The kids are out making igloos out of colored snow they made with multiple dyes, building a snowman and sledding down the Driveway of Doom™. They had a great time indeed, and its good for them to get outside.

Jett not only has been on multiple walks today, but Rocky, a lab-mix puppy from down the street came by so they got to play in the snow.

They get along well, and stay close enough that we don't have to hold their leashes while they play, so they commenced racing through the backyard.

They had a ton of fun running around.

For some reason, the snow really sticks to Jett's coat. It clumps on and does not shake or lightly brush off. We need to watch to make sure he doesn't get too cold with all the compacted snow stuck to him and he does start to shiver after awhile. So this time since he was covered and it would not come off, I gave him a warm bath once he was done playing. He handled the bath like a champ and certainly seemed to like the warm water melting off the ton of snow. He's happily napping now all nice and warm. He had a great time.

Snow is expected to continue to fall throughout the night, but it's already accumulating nicely:

Yeah. That's about the size of it.

Yeah, Dog Fun!

Rather the snow than the ice storms. Except for my big driveway needing shoveled.

Yep, they were having fun! Bet they needed a LONG nap!

ML: Ye, and lots of it.

PH: Yeah, the shoveling is getting old fast.

Old NFO: That they did.
