Cloud Snowwalker (wiff bonus SQUEEE)

Dis post is fur everyone who is sad their snow melted away. As you can see, we still have lots of snow in Iowa. But wiff slightly above freezing temps in the daytime, then freezing at night, the snow has developed a thin crust of ice on the top. I can now WALK ON TOP OF SNOW!!! Dis feat has earned me new nickname of Cloud Snowwalker.

So the other day I was out in the backyard wiff mom while she was taking pictures of stuff like dis:

When she noticed me peeking out from behind a snowbank. I was looking fur rabbits. Woo may have to biggify picture fur to see me:

I stood up to say "Oh, HI!"

I decided to climb over the snowbank.

I fell through the crust! Dis happens sometimes when you're a Snowwalker.

Here it comes...

Wait fur it...



I has fierce determination befitting a Wonder Dog.

Almost to the top!

I made it! Look at all the snow I kicked up, BOL!

Note how I spread my toes wide. Dis helps wiff Snowwalking:

It's like having snow shoes!

Cloud Snowwalker. It keeps my nekkid belly out of the snow.


PS. If anyone wonders why I wasn't wearing my red hoodie, it wasn't that cold and we were only outside fur a few minutes. Mom didn't expect me to go climbing snowbanks, BOL!

Wow, Cloud Snowwalker, you are some kind of cool guy. Fearlessly climbing snow mountains, going where other dogs fear to go, falling in and climbing right out.
Your feeties are like snowshoes!

I should make you a belly band to cover your nekkidness and keep your tummy warm. What do you say?


Olive said...

That looks like you were having so much fun. Your mom was very good about letting you do it by yourself!

Taffy said...

Cloud, you are very brave to even attempt becoming a snowwalker, much less becoming a professional at it. You have all my respect! And, even if you do have a light bulb head you are smart enough to turn your paws into snow shoes! Tell your momma to stick that in her know the rest.

You are my hero Cloud Snowwalker.

(The red hoodie would have seriously undermined the steely gaze and gritty climb to the top of that mountain.)

Hey Cloudy boy!
My mom is over the moon! ...she thinks you are the cutest thing in the world (and I think Im about to lose my status...thanks to you!)
She just loves those pictures and thinks your paws are the funniest. Those nails!...and your face! Methinks you are one scaredy cat!
Enjoy the snow my friend and lotsaluv from mom

Hi Cloud those are some good pictures. Madi and I especially liked the close up of your fantastic foot and toe action. Mom is a toe person you know she is always playing with my soft toes (her words).
Happy weekend and keep on Snowwalking.
Madi and Mom

Oh Cloud, you are ever so brave to climb such a big mountain!!!


Bijou said...

Hi Cloud,

Will you be climbing Mount Everest next? BOL

We still have lots of snow too. Mom finally scooped us a path through the big snow drift so we could get to our part of the backyard and check everything out. It's only been two months!
